Although my family usually indulges in a rousing game of Wii bowling during get togethers, after Thanksgiving dinner this year, I decided to break out the Guitar Hero to see if my relatives would be down to rock out. They put in a good effort, but let's just say they weren't into my Metallica expansion pack and complained of headaches after two songs. However, I'm sure they'd know a few tunes from the latest release. Just in time for Christmas, you can add another sick guitar solo to your repertoire as Guitar Hero: Van Halen hits shelves today.
Packed with 25 of the band's greatest hits like "Jump" (everybody knows that song — even my Aunt Erma), you and your friends and family can work off those holiday sweets by shredding it up online, as a group, or in battle as a band. And to get more bang for your buck, this pack combines the best of Van Halen along with 20 songs by other artists like Foreigner, The Clash, Deep Purple, and Lenny Kravitz for a total of a 45 song setlist.
Guitar Hero: Van Halen is available for your PS3, PS2, Wii, and Xbox 360 systems today online or in stores for $56.
