  1. The game offers 25 songs from Aerosmith, but hits like „Crazy“, „Cryin‘“ or „I don’t want to miss a thing“ are not included. There are 15 more songs from other artists like Lenny Kravitz, Joan Jett or The Cult. It’s still fun, but if you are an Aerosmith fan, you’d like to play the hits, not second rate songs.

    It's tough to get excited about Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. It's essentially a re-release of Guitar Hero III with a new song list and some new avatars.
  3. While there are a few missing tracks, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith provides a good setlist that fans of the band will enjoy. However, the PC version runs into the same type of problems as its predecessor did, and ultimately is tough to recommend to anyone without the highest end PC.
  4. All details are overridden by your answer to this very simple question: Just how much do you like Aerosmith? [Feb 2009, p.74]
  5. If your PC is good enough to run this and you're a big Aerosmith fan, then you could probably add as many extra points to my score as you feel that it requires.

    I guess what I was hoping for was a true band history, a sort of playable "Behind the Music" -- not just a collection of songs and significant venues. As it is, it's fine for existing fans of the band...but it's not likely to create any new ones.

    The Aerosmiths songs are all extremely long and tedious. The warm up band songs are generally better which makes for a pretty poor game. This is Guitar Hero 3 with a bad track list which doesn't paly particularly well either. Full Review »
