When I played the very first guitar hero, I was amazed at the game, it's simplicity, the replay value, and the fun in general. This newest incarnation of this title brings nothing new to this stale, overused game. Each time this game is released, with its new track list and minor new tweaks, I have high hopes that they can somehow make the game better, but the play list is all that's ever really 'new' with this game. Guitar Hero Aerosmith is no exception to this rule. Sure, the songs are fresh and so are the animations of Aerosmith themselves, but that's it. The backgrounds (venues) in this game look rushed, not completed and just plain cruddy in general. The encore songs that used to make something special occur, in this game, merely make a poorly rendered jet fly over the venue or something equally as meaningless. The songs, while covering a great deal of Aerosmith' s history, leave you with the feeling like they have left out half of the band's songbook. In short..RENT this game if you've never played Guitar Hero ever before, you'll dig it, but if you've played them all..You'd better wait until something new besides 'guitar battle' mode gets added to help this title along.
For a game that is supposed to feature Aerosmith, they sure picked a bunch of key-rappy, obscure songs. Just like the last installment I played of this franchise, the game was ruined for me by an unbeatable duel against a guitar "legend". This game is good for abut 5 hours of play then it gets extremely boring.
