Play in eight original venues specifically designed for Guitar Hero® Van Halen®. Rock around the globe, from a small club in Los Angeles to arenas around the world, including the iconic "S-stage" from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s 2007 world tour.

Play as one of the four members of Van Halen or create your own personalized superstar with Rock Star Creator and watch your superstar party on stage. Rock out with up to four players locally or battle other bands with up to 8 players.

With sales around 50K, the Wii version is the most sucesful so far. Still a flop, though. I kind of like Van Halen but Activision missed the release window. This game would really sell 20 years ago.
