While the game does not have any content or songs from the Sammy Hagar era (and they left out Michael Anthony), it still has a lot of great songs. The songs are master recordings from the band and sound great. I'm sure there will be a Guitar Hero Van Halen sequel in the future that will include the bands material from 1986 to the present. There are just too many number one hits that they didn't cover in this release. Still, it is a great game to play and own.

I got this game free with GH5 and a good thing too because it's in no way worth $60. It looks and plays like the first GH games for PS2 and the song choices could have been better. The solos they rave about are extremely short, more like sound bytes lasting only a minute or less though Eruption is difficult. I was also disappointed when I received it, it came in a paper sleeve so I guess they are charging the extra money for the plastic case...lol
