Get ready to JUMP with Guitar Hero: Van Halen

By Drew Mills

December 8, 2009

Sorry, but you must excuse the pun as I’ve been listening to Van Halen since I was a little kid. “Jump” is one of the first songs I can remember from my childhood as they used to play it all the time at Chicago Cubs games. Oh, good times, good times.  But enough about me, let’s get down to playing some Guitar Hero. Poised to rock your face off on December 22nd, it will be hitting on the 360, PS3, Wii and PS2. This compilation features over 25 Van Halen songs and 19 guest songs.  Some of the guests featured are older songs like Foreigner with “Double Vision,” or “I Want It All” by Queen. Other guest songs are from modern artists such as Jimmy Eat World and The Offspring.

I’ve never been a huge fan of music games in general, but this one I will definitely be taking a closer look at, which should be easy now that the demo is out on Xbox Live to Gold members. The demo will be available next Tuesday for Silver members and next Thursday for PSN members.
