Since I was not thinking about getting Guitar Hero: Van Halen, I at least wanted to see what I will be missing out on. I downloaded the demo today on XBOX Live, with an expectation. And that was to be more like Van Halen, one of the gods of Rock and Roll. The graphics look good, and the start up was great, which got me pumped.I had one goal in mind, to pass a particular song which Van Halen was known for. If I could do that, I could have fulfilled my Guitar Hero dream.
There are four songs to play on Guitar Hero: Van Halen demo. They have Dope Nose by Weezer, The End Of Heartache by Killswitch Engage, and Eruption and Panama by Van Halen. All of them were great, but there was that one song, Eruption, standing in my way for total achievement. I played that song on expert, and all I can say is that I am no Guitar Hero. I am just an employee at Best Buy. That song is so tough. I would love to see the Youtube video of someone playing that and getting 100% on it without cheating. That would definitely be placed under my favorites. Overall I have high hoped for this game to many advent Guitar Hero fans. For me, the rock has died, as I am sticking with Rock Band, with my 400 plus songs I downloaded. I guess I can’t stop what I started.
