Alright many people have compared this game to Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's. Well it really is not. Guitar hero Aerosmith is meant to outline the history of Aerosmith and their adventures as a band.
Gameplay: Well it plays exactly as any other guitar hero game. 5 different colored note come scrolling down the screen and when it gets to a certain point you are to press and strum you're guitar to note shown. Not really a complicated concept. However quite difficult to master. Also those familiar with the GH3 Hammer-on and Pull offs(HOPO's) are stricter in this game than in GH3. The game features 6 tiers of songs to play, each location ties into Aerosmith history in a way. Each of the 6 tiers features 2 non-aerosmith songs followed by 3 Aerosmith songs Then you move onto the next tier.of songs. Along each of the songs depending on how well you do you get money to unlock new guitars characters and the 11 bonus songs. While again really simple it does get the job done.
Graphics: The graphics are pretty good in thins game. The band members look great and the Aerosmith characters look great and even do similar dances like do in real life. But other than that graphics don't really matter in a game like this.
Final Thoughts: If you have never played guitar hero but like Aerosmith i would recommend this game. If you do not like Aerosmith then stick with Guitar Hero III. Hardcore guitar hero fans may not like the fact that the charts in this game are a easier.
This is my first review and I hope all would agree with my critique. I had just finished playing Guitar Hero: Aerosmith and Loved the experience. People may state that the game has songs from the band they have never heard of, but it would be due to the fact that Aerosmith have been around in the 70's from which the story works with. the level of difficulty is what you would expect from the Guitar Hero Franchise and there are songs that are memorable like Love in an Elevator and Walk This Way. The video made it a little difficult to focus on the notes since Steven Tyler's always doing something different in each song. Other than that, I'm impressed and won't hesitate to purchase this game.

I have enjoyed guitar hero games since the day i first played one on the ps2. This game is an awesome collection of songs, both fun to play and enjoyable to listen to. The only reason it doesn't get a ten from me is because it was way to short, and because i believe this all could have been done via DLC. I liked the new unlockable characters, but i think it would have been even more awesome to play my gh3 songs as DMC, ya feel what i'm saying? What was the point of making all those characters just to play like 40 songs? Had gh aerosmith been integrated into gh3, i believe a lot more people would have picked it up. This game is also linkable to your guitar hero community page. Can't wait for World Tour
