Rated 9 out of 10 by rockstar321 Great for aerosmith fans, and for guitar hero fans
One of the best rock and roll bands ever is Aerosmith. and finally they get their own guitar hero game. all of the songs by Aerosmith that you love are here, make it, kings and queens, no surprise, and many more. and great songs by other artists similar to Aerosmith were thrown in as well. the gameplay is similar to guitar hero legends of rock. the graphics have improved since legends of rock. their are exact CGI models of the real band members of Aerosmith. In the game's career mode, you play through 6 famous venues of Aerosmith's history, it's like actually experiencing what the group experienced. the venues look amazing, and some are even massive, from small high school proms, to the halftime show at a major football game, to the rock and roll hall of fame. all of those places are famous places Aerosmith played at in their career. and the cutscenes are live action Aerosmith band members talking about each venue. this is a must have for all fans of Aerosmith, and all fans of guitar hero.
Rated 9 out of 10 by QWERTYUIOP Rent it, don't buy it
When I rented this game, I was expecting it to be similar to "Rock the 80's", except with Aerosmith of course. I like Aerosmith enough, so I'm not judging this game based on how much I like the band. I put it in my PS2, beat the first two songs, and when Aerosmith came out, I was immediately disappointed by the graphics. I normally don't care about graphics in a game like Guitar Hero, but compared to the 360 and PS3, which I saw screen shots of in Gameinformer, this game looks like a cartoon (especially Joe Perry's face). I decided to ignore the graphics and move on. But then, after maybe playing for an hour, I got to "Train Kept A' Rollin", which judging by how long I've been playing, and how easy it was, I thought I was maybe half way through the game. beat it, and it said "Congratulations, you beat Guitar Hero: Aerosmith on Expert!". I was extremely disappointed by that, but at the same time glad I only rented it as opposed to paying so much for a game that doesn't even last you a day.
Rated 9 out of 10 by vanderj225 Good Game
This game is a pretty good game. If you liked the game Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock then you will enjoy this one. I think that Legends of Rock was a better game by a bit though. This is mostly because there are not as many songs in this game. In Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock there were more than 70 songs, but in this one there is a bit more than 40 songs. I was kind of hoping that the create a song feature would kick in this game so that i didn't have to wait for guitar 4. Other than those things the game is really great. I like how the gameplay stayed the same and didn't change from GH3. I Also liked there were more than just Aerosmith songs. There are Lenny Kravitz and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and much more!! Overall, if you are a fan of Guitar Hero games, this is definitely worth buying. Now after I can beat this game i am so pysched for Guitar Hero 4 with the drums and the create a song feature!!!!!And hopefully they will take my setlist that i submitted.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Guitar Hero!!!! Its okay.
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is the latest installment in the series, and i would rate it as one of the poorest showings. The graphics on the Aerosmith characters are better but the simple problems from GH3 (like the male singer's hideous looks) were not fixed. The gameplay is exactly the same as GH3, which is (mostly) a good thing. The song choice is very repetative, so this should be a must buy for die hard Aerosmith fans, but maybe not others. The challenge from the previous installments is all but gone. It took me 1 day to beat the game on expert, despite my still not beating previous guitar heroes. I wont spoil anything, but it simply is not anywhere near as difficult as either guitar hero 2 or guitar hero 3. I've played all 5 Guitar Heroes, and I would rate them like this (best to worst): Guitar Hero 2, Guitar Hero 3, Guitar Hero, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, and Guitar Hero Rocks the 80s. As you can see, its not among the best. Overall, its just an average installment using the EXACT same gameplay, concept, and graphics as Guitar Hero 3.
Rated 6 out of 10 by metalofwars97 okay game, but not the greatest
This game is relatively fun for a short time at first, but after a few times playing it, it begins to drag on a bit. I have this game for ps2, and i still sometimes play it just for fun, but most of this game is not exactly fun. I'm 14 years old, and I am okay with Aerosmith, but I'm not the biggest fan of them in the world. Anyway, this game is best for easy, medium, and some hard players but not for the true guitar hero players that play well on expert, like myself. I have FC'd (full combo, not breaking your streak throughout the entire song) every song on expert except for Back in the Saddle, Train Kept a Rollin', and Mercy. This game does not show very much difficulty at all for expert players, unlike guitar hero 3. My recommendation is if you are an expert player, do not buy this game. Buy guitar hero 3, world tour, 5, or warriors of rock instead. If you are an easy or medium player, I suggest renting this game at first to see if you like it. If you are a hard player, same thing, rent it first, don't buy it until you're sure that you like it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by 3rdRock bEST gAME eVER!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aerosmith is the best band ever!! That's why I got this game. It is kinda short, but that's the only bad thing. Oh yeah, the graphics too (but you know its ps2). the best songs to play are train kept a rollin, moving out, kings and queens, rats in the cellar, and living on the edge. they don't have dude looks like a lady (my favorite song) so thats another down... the guitar is pretty cool, the black and all, but the one for xbox and pc (red guitar with aerosmith logo ). i wish that guitar was in the ps2 bundle (i got the bundle). if you want to go to the vault (the store in the game), you should get DMC or Joe Perry, but Joe's better!!! The game only took me an hour and a half to finish on medium. on hard i'm stuck on walk this way (feat. DMC). after you complete each stage (or venue), you'll see a behind-the-scenes video of the band itself. definitely the best game ever!!!
Rated 1 out of 10 by AmandaH Very disappointing!
Most boring Guitar Hero ever! Not many songs to choose from! I was very disappointed when I first started playing that I quit after a few songs, then watched my husband play the rest. He cleared it that day because it was so easy. When you play easy mode they don't even give you that many notes to play. I can't believe they actually came out with this game! I'm so mad that I spent money on this game when I was so excited to get it!! So if you really want to play this game, I'd rent it first, then decide if it's worth it. I don't know how a teenager could enjoy this game. It's horrible. So we will probably sell this to a used game store because I know that I will never play this game again. Now I'm wondering what the next one will be and if it will take long to come out! They should probably stick to good rock, alternative, classic rock, etc. and no more themes like this!
Rated 8 out of 10 by t.roy i think its great
i think this game is definitly buying quality and i can honestly say i think the rumors (that this game is so much easier than all the others in the series) are hyperboles (an extreme exageration). because the song is just as diffucult as the rest if u r playing on the highest diffuculty your are capable of. of course if ur only playing aerosmith on easy, and u already beat gh3 on expert, of course its going to be much easier. and in case you blind peolple havent noticed the earlier games had horrible graphics and these are actually decent. and as far as song choice the first game had over 30 songs, rt80s had over 20, gh2 had 40, gh3 had 0ver 70.and aerosmith has over 40 so it has the second most of all the games and if ur talking about how most of all are by the same band well maybe u should have relized that when u played a game named after the band!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by VGLover Great Game
This game rocks, go Guitar Hero Aerosmith. Personally, i love Aerosmith. So I was really excited when i got this game. The songs are great, the sounds, responsiveness, etc. The only thing I would change is the challenge. It only took me about 8 hours to beat Easy. I think this game should have been rated higher. It is not all that bad. It may be bad for other systems like X-Box three sixty or wii, or play station three, but for play station two, it is a pretty good game. I would recommend this game to anyone, unless you do not like Aerosmith. Like I said, before, this game is not perfect, no game can ever or will ever be, but it is pretty good for a Guitar Hero game. If you do not like this game or any other Guitar Hero games, maybe you should try Rockband. Although, personally, I like Guitar Hero better.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Ratchetfan Don't buy if your an expert player.
First off, this game is pretty great. But i warn you, if you are the type of person that plays on expert mode(usually). This game will sure to disappoint you. (Well i am one of those people). But if you play on medium/easy most of the time. i would predict that you could enjoy this game. Although the lack of song selection.. This game comes by pretty fast. The story is told in short clips of the real band members talking about their past, and their old "band life". It sometimes confuses me that in most venues, they put at least 2 other band's songs and only about 2-3 Aerosmith songs. Overall, if you are a big Aerosmith fan, I'm sure you'll enjoy rocking out to your favorite songs and jamming on the plastic guitar. The difficulty is overall easy, like i said.. You won't enjoy this game if you are a more advanced Hero player.
