Guitar Hero Van Halen Walkthrough, tips & Cheats

Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for the return of the great music game that has done more successfully than any other, this time, "Holland with fury", here is … Guitar Hero: Van Halen! Euphoria aside, the question is one. Will we survive the ridiculous solos that good old Van Halen did the golden age?  The game was officially announced by Activision on May 7 2009. The name of the American group was the first to jump out when they started shooting the first rumors of a growing series of Guitar Hero dedicated entirely to a single band but at the time were chosen to Aerosmith, and their name also crops up out of the expansion "mono" later but this time were the favorite Metallica. For the third expansion the Activision has decided to bet on a group known hard rock and release the publication on the market directly for the current year.

The big news of this episode is how the evening. Here, the songs are linked together and no need to fight to see who will play a particular instrument, anyone can do what he wants. 4 guitars, 4 microphones, the possibilities are enormous. It is even possible in the middle of a concert or a change of instrument in transit. The title becomes the Day of the friendly evening with pals and no one blames you go to the bathroom or do not have all the instruments. It is a game mode and uninhibited fun. If you add to that the presence of the entire playlist from the beginning, you have an episode of "ready to play" very, very strong.

The more experienced players will have food on the plate. Indeed, whatever the instrument, the difficulty is present and is not sulking his pleasure at the small improvements of the gameplay. Better management of star power, the words "spoken" or even better sequences of notes. The title is also increased by more than compelling graphics where details abound. Hair flying, jackets wrinkle, artists have many very fine entertainment. One is speechless before a shrug or a guitar solo crazy.

The fans also have challenges of what to do in career mode.

The career mode is full of targets of all kinds. Each song has a little challenge and you have at each location specific challenges. You need to bind such a number of notes on the guitar and score maximum points in the song. These challenges can unlock costumes and other instruments. The career mode becomes the antechamber of professional perfection. Some challenges require you even increase your level of play very significantly. In short, it is a total success and each class of player can take his foot.

This is as close to perfection through its menus more accessible, these varied challenges, or with his creations (characters, instruments or music). Kurt Cobain and Johnny Cash were even present to thrill the heart of all fans. The fans of the previous sections can import much of their setlist and downloadable content are also transferable from one game to another (excluding pack Hendrix). So you’ll understand that the party is not nearly complete. Future episodes will only gain in depth (especially for the career mode is still quite linear).


The future of the series is perpetuated and the year-end reserve 2 more promising other titles for those who want toincrease their playlist (Band Hero and Guitar Hero Van Halen).

Game Plot :

Well yes, again become legends and this time will be much harder than the others. Moreover, the songs of Van Halen and the legendary Eddie’s solos are not easy, though certainly more than exciting. Speaking of gameplay, this new title will be the same as Guitar Hero Metallica, and this could leave a little surprise. That Neversoft has no more ideas to propose? That there are actually additions to vary a bit ‘the "soup"? Currently we can not give us a definite answer to 100%, but surely we can assume a very healthy dose of fun.

Avoiding at all to get bored with play features are already known, we encourage "newbies" of this fantastic saga of going to comb through our library and find a review of Guitar Hero Metallica (or simply click on the name, NDR), where each mode is described a more than adequate. However, we can anticipate that unfortunately will not be possible to transfer the tracks again the spin-off on Guitar Hero 5, and this leaves us disappointed. In any case, we present the tracklist that we will have the honor of playing short, anticipating that there will be only Van Halen. Enjoy it:
The game will support all the tools-controller and the second pedal controller-charger to exploit the new level of difficulty Expert + launched Guitar Hero: Metallica.


After some time now by the news of the production of a chapter of Guitar Hero dedicated to Van Halen, Activision surprised everyone and announced, hours after having released the trailer for the submission, the complete list of songs present and the date of official release on the territory American.

Before leaving the complete list of songs in Guitar Hero: Van Halen and the video for "Dance the Night Away" (so, just for starters), we look forward to the first pictures of the Wii and PS2 version (done by Budcat Creations), so as the X360 and PS3 (Neversoft), to find out what’s in Serbian Activision for us … maybe starting from a guitar with additional features that knows how to bring out the monstrous Eddie tapping similarly to double-pedal drums of Lars Ulrich for Guitar Hero : Metallica.

Basic Tips for Beginner –

The basic tip for all music games is practice, practice, practice. Only in this way turns the switch gradually to the new songs and new features in the game. Beginners start with the simplest songs, and work your way step by step upwards to the top-heavy songs that are unlocked gradually.

Music games with microphone

For many music games that are played with a microphone, it’s enough if you hold the microphone to the console  if a song is played. Then it was hardly error because the program does the original song as his own vocal interpretation. Who does not want to sing, which can in most games simply humming loudly – usually the program will not register this as an error. Listening only to the pitch of the song and look to see if her singing is not too high or too low. 

Play music with instruments 

In games like Rock Band or Guitar Hero is about skill and precision, notes will be played at the right time. Often, it is so fast that many notes to be played in succession. It may easily happen that ye even playful. Then you must not under any circumstances be hectic and dodge like crazy on the keys to somehow land again a hit. Rather you should you a quick note simply stare that is currently only in two seconds and continue from this. So while you might miss something, but it does not just happen, that it is even more hectic by mistake.
