After playing through a few tiers in guitar hero aerosmith I was faced with a growing yet obvious question...now what? Being a devout fan of the series since the initial release of the first guitar hero has provided quite a useful retrospect in the development of the series. While guitar hero aerosmith is a fun and entertaining experience none the less, it serves as somewhat of a distraction to what the series should be doing, trying to break down the creative barriers of the current formula and come up with something truly unique. Playing with Joe Perry and the gang revives some classics and brings about a mild challenge in the form of songs like "train kept a' rollin" and "toys in the attic", yet the overall package is not worth the price of a full game. A mere 41 songs in total and absolutely no innovative qualities that separate it from guitar hero 3. In fact it essentially IS guitar hero 3 aside from the aerosmith-esque venues and setlist (vaguely reminiscent of rocks the 80's). All in all its still guitar hero at its core and its still fun to play. Yet I cannot sit in content and play this game without thinking that neversoft could be doing something better with their time. When guitar hero world tour finally his shelves, I guess we will know once and for all.

The game is somewhat fair, but if you are into playing exciting rock songs like in GH3 you may be disapointed. There are FAR less songs than in GH3 and for 60$ not really worth it. The songs are pretty easy for the most part and if you are an experienced player i think the fun will be gone after your first run through. Plus if you have lag problems the new ho/po system will drive you insane. It is a fair game but nothing like I expected.
