The game sucks, and is nowhere near the quality of GH: Metallica. ~5/10 is fitting - half a rating for half the effort. The reviewer's right. Nobody wants to play classic Van Halen with the latest lineup, and some of the non-Van Halen songs are just out of place, to put it mildly. The game really suffers because of the band's volatility, IMO. If they hadn't broken up rearranged the members like 17 times, they would've had a more solid game. Not that they would care, of course.
Disagreed. GH:A is way better in content. It had videos with band members, the stages actually had relevance, the supporting artists were a million times better, and for the most part enjoyed watching the virtual representations of the members much more.
That's with musical preference aside. I personally like Aerosmith and Van Halen pretty equally, but the VH songs are definitely tougher...
