You'd have to be a hardcore aerosmith fan to enjoy this game. And even then you'd be disappointed. First off, only 18 out of the 31 tracks are Aerosmith songs. The rest are mostly garbage songs that have to be played on easy so you can stumble your way through them while not paying attention.
Once you finally get to some Aerosmith songs you realize they only used a couple of their really good songs. The rest would require a large sum of narcotics to enjoy.

My friend and i got this game in the mail yesterday and we popped it into his 360 and we started playing and we went on expert and we beat the career pretty fast without a guitar and then with a guitar it was fun but it passes out achievements like they are candy(not like there is anything wrong with that).
First off, I play a lot of Guitar Hero/Rockband, so I'm well experience. I play on Expert easily.
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is a little dissapointing, but not as much as I thought. I mean I knew it wasn't going to blow me away, but it is a good rental.
The songs are ... okay. I really wish there were some other Aerosmith songs chosen.
There are actually only a couple I enjoy playing.
The lack of co-op career was a little disappointing. The fact that there is only 31 songs in Career mode is a little disappointing.
I sat down and played Expert Career and finished it in 3 hours. I basically breezed through every song until the Train Keeps on Rolling, which is fun yet incredibly hard.
I like Guitar Hero because the guitar parts are insane compared to Rockband, but I felt disappointed. I breezed through them all without ever having to repeat. I failed twice in 30 songs once at 95% and another at 97%.
The story to Career mode is kind of fun. Each venue Aerosmith coms on and tells you what happens next in their career.
The unlockables are alright. The game just feels a little half a$$ed as far as content.
It kind of feels like an expansion to Guitar Hero 3, which in principle it is except for it costs $60 and the lack of Guitar Hero 3 content.
The songs are mainly ok at best, but there are a few gems. "Dream On" and "Walk this Way featuring DMC" were songs I really, really want to come back in Guitar Hero: World Tour. Those songs were an absolute blast to play. They have a great vibe to them.
All in all, it is a fun couple days, but there isn't much to it. 31 songs + 7ish bonus tracks won't keep you busy for very long.
