Games Reviews: Guitar Hero: Van Halen

£39.99 – £49.99

Format PS3, Wii, Xbox 360

Publisher Activision

Not being a huge (or even a tiny) Van Halen fan, Guitar Hero Van Halen isn’t a title that massively excites me. Unfortunately, due to a rather tired format and a slew of frankly bizarre choices of non-Halen filler tracks, the latest Guitar Hero release seems unlikely to appeal to die-hard followers of the band either. While music games can still rock, it takes more than a phoned-in performance like this to be a number one.
