I received this game 2 months ago when I purchased guitar hero 5 and I am more pleased with the game than the professional reviewers would make you think. This installment is really no different than the aerosmith or metallica releases. Its all going to depend on your musical taste. The only real issue that hardcore guitar hero players will have is the ease of the game. Most the songs can be 5 starred the first go around on expert. There are also some real difficult songs that will test even the best of players. So if you are still a person who plays guitar hero for the music and not the challenge, give it a try.
Pros: Good graphics, guitar hero metallica engine, great sound, good guest acts.
Cons: Can be 5 starred on expert very easily, not a huge setlist.
Buy or Rent: Buy if you like Van Halen, Rent if you dont.

I had high hopes for Guitar Hero-Van Halen. Being a Van Halen fan i was pleased with the Van Halen songs in the game, but the other artists dont fit in. If your a fan af guitar hero games, i wouldnt hesitate to rent it, but i wouldn't be spending my hard earned cash on buying it.
