  1. But ultimately how much you personally enjoy Guitar Hero: Aerosmith depends on how much you like the band. If you love Aerosmith, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is easily the best Guitar Hero yet.
  2. The game does provide a challenge, but unlocked characters from GH 3 should have rolled over into this title. And while there is a great list of songs here, others that might have provided a little more variety to the compendium of the band’s best songs of all time are missing.
  3. Guitar Hero Aerosmith delivers where it counts — with great music enhanced by the chance to play along.
  4. The only thing running against Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is the price. For about the same price as the game - $50US - consumers can download these tracks online to their PC for less.
  5. It’s a shame that only a few real hits have found their way into the game.

    With a lack of downloadable content and a disappointing short set list GH: Aerosmith certainly isn't for everyone.
  7. The delivery is tried and true, but it is starting to feel a bit old.
  8. Thankfully, the inclusion of master tracks and a slick menu interface means that this title sounds and plays exactly how it ought to.
  9. How much you enjoy Guitar Hero: Aerosmith will be adjusted on how much you enjoy Aerosmith music.

    It does make for some great Guitar Hero tracks. [Sept 2008, p.78]

    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.
  12. Neversoft and RedOctane played it safe by changing little to nothing in the Guitar Hero franchise with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith.
  13. And as a huge Aerosmith fan, I certainly enjoyed having most of my favorite songs compiled into a single game, but ultimately this game is nothing more than a tribute to Aerosmith and you had better be a big fan if you want to play, otherwise, save your cash and spend it on song downloads you really like.

    There's no doubting the single band formula is a solid road for Guitar Hero to venture down, it will obviously shrink the market as it narrows the appeal a tad but if you love the band in question it'll pretty much be a dream come true. Me? I'd be more excited about a Queen or Guns 'n' Roses version but this is a decent first go.

    With bonus songs from Perry's solo efforts and a fully animated Steven Tyler swallowing the microphone, the game's target audience is very clear -- and for them, the game's existence is justified.
  16. Really, the game looks and feels much like Guitar Hero III, but done better. How much better? That's going to be about as subjective as the track listing the band, Activision and Neversoft cobbled together.

    i am not really a big Aerosmith fan but even if i loved them they are not a good bad to have showcase a guitar hero game as most of thieri am not really a big Aerosmith fan but even if i loved them they are not a good bad to have showcase a guitar hero game as most of thier songs are at about the same speed and are kinda hard to get into while playing which is not good. also as ppl have mentioned before some of thier big hits are missing from this game but they have a couple hits and it is not as bad as some ppl say. all in all this is a good rental but after a little bit it will get boring so unless you are a die hard aerofan stick with a rental Full Review »

"Janie's Got a Gun," "Eat the Rich," "Crying," "Amazing," and "Crazy" are just a few of the strangely missing songs. I liked some of the lesser-known songs, but I expected to. And for a very strange reason, there's no Co-Op Career mode. That's been a fun thing to do with my wife on other GH versions, so We were really shocked. It makes it so you can't earn enough money to buy all the stuff in the Vault. I'm probably going to just have to start another solo career to earn enough money. Full Review »
