Guitar Hero: Aerosmith - Game Only
really, guitar hero?
Aerosmith? AEROSMITH?! what genius at the guitar hero studio came up with that idea? When asked who you would feature on a guitar hero game, i dont know one person that would answer "oh aerosmith of course!" names like led zeppelin, jimi hendrix, the beatles, or van halen come to mind, no doubt... but definatly NOT aerosmith. I know the copywrite issues on some of the mentioned bands may have been a little tricky for the folks at guitar hero, but have a little decency. Im not saying aerosmith is a bad band band, because theyre not. Theyre actually great, but they just seem like a bad choice to feature on a guitar hero game. the guitar in aerosmith is average for its time... not bad, but nothing special. It would have been a better band to featue on a rock band type game, where all the musicians are extremely talented, but none are legends. I just cant understand how they would pass up all the bands that were famous for theyre screaming guitars for aerosmith. Pretty lame, guitar hero.
Walk This Way ^A^ Guitar Hero Aerosmith
I am looking forward to this game mainly because Joe Perry is so enthused with the Guitar Hero game. He is so emersed in guitars and 2 of his adult sons are in TAB the band which he also played with for a few shows. One of his sons was playing GH a few years ago (I think a younger one) and Joe was very impressed with the game. the rest is history...I have 4 sons, 2 are teens who play Guitar Hero and also regular acoustic guitars. Their friends come over and play the game as well. It is a big hit in my house. I am a big Aerosmith fan and the teens seem to also like them. I think this game will rock and I'll be happy to watch. It will be interesting to see what bands will be on the game in addition to Aerosmith. This will probably just be the first of many bands to have their own GH game. It's sort of funny that teens are being introduced to music that I've known for years and some new stuff as well. I think this is another way for Aerosmith and other bands to get their music out to people.
good idea, bad band
I like the idea about being able to go through the band's career and all that, but I think Aerosmith wasn't the best choice for this. I think they're a great band, I like their music and I would definitely like to have the game, but I also think that Aerosmith have too small of a following that also play guitar hero. Most people that play guitar hero won't want to play Aerosmith songs, especially since the songs they chose for guitar hero in the past were terrible choices (IMO). The makers should have chosen a band that appeals more to the people that actually play games and not people in their 40's and up and have to go to work at 6 in the morning. Before they do something like this again and want to use another band they need to have a poll with at least 5 different choices/bands so they can see which band they should make a guitar hero game for. Good luck to activision and red octane on trying to get good sales with this installment in the guitar hero series.
Good but not a tribute
I grew up on Aerosmith. I am 49 years old and saw Aerosmith on the Toys In the Attic tour. I immediately caught the ommision of the word "high" in the song Pandora's Box. My question is , why? If you listen to the song closely, it is'nt hard to guess the meaning behind it. Point being, if you are going to honor one of the greatest rock bands in history,and one of the greatest showmen in the history of rock and roll (Steven Tyler), then the integrity of their work should be untouched. To put it politely, this is not the time for political correctness. Video games have gone past games to becoming art, and thusly no one is better at their art form than Aerosmith. The song lineup is fair, but I hope there will be more of the classic Aerosmith to download. If you are a GH fan and an Aerosmith fan, then I recommend buying this game. Also, I personally would have preferred an all Aerosmith lineup, saving the opening act format for GH4.
Don't know how to say it...THEN DON'T!!
I was going to post in response to the guy whom is below me to say that the avid GH fan has the right to be upset if they want, etc...but started reading through some comments left here and realized that the people who are complaining or arguing are doing it terribly wrong and have withdrawn what I was going to say. However, there are many reasons why this game is a pointless idea thought up for whatever reason, but to suggest an all Dragonforce game(a game that the majority of the people couldn't beat), i mean like that idea is any better?!? Or to pick any other band for that matter, it is still the same idea, am I wrong? You people complaining are true GH fans, but realize that this isn't GH4, even though you want it to be so badly that you are willing to suggest ignorant ideas yourself. It is what it is,, this is Walk this way, NOT GH4, once you understand that, I promise you, that your hurt and frustration will go away.
Well Aerosmith is a good one. It isn`t hard but it was one to enjoy. I got the game for Christmas and beat the game in two to three days. There isn`t enough tracks only about 41 or 42. But the graphics are really great the only one who looks bad is the drummer. Buy the game it is really good. If you are in to rock band this is harder than that. But it is alot easier then that GH3. The hammer ons are okay but they should have worked a little bit more on the songlist. They missed dude looks like a lady cryin crazy and janie`s got a gun. Seriously those are the best song`s aerosmith wrote. Also if you are a fan of Run DMC he is in the game to. You could buy him in the vault. Overall I really like this game you know It isn`t as bad as everyone says it is. But if you aren`t an Aerosmith faNn do not buy this game. If you are like me then go buy it.
Very Good Addition To The Guitar Hero Gaming Line.
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is a very good addition to the Guitar Hero series. GH: Aerosmith has a bundle of new features. Some of the new features include; Videos after completing/starting each venue, these videos include Aersomith talking about the next venue you are about to play, and their experiences while playing there. Activision also improved on the animations and graphics of the game, they are more interactive, and well choreographed then Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. You will actually notice Aerosmith performing and reacting towards the song that you are playing, for example, while singing "goin' down" Steven Tyler actually lies down on the ground. They have also made the game less difficult, this could be a bad thing if you like it to be very challenging, but also good if you're an average player who doesn't play all the time. Not saying that it's easy, it is still challenging, but not as so like Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. So overall this is a very good game and I would recommend this game to any Guitar Hero and Aerosmith enthusiast.
History may repeat itself
I don't know how many people actually played the first Aerosmith game; "Revolution X", but that game sucked on so many levels. Yes, it wasn't a game based around the music of Aerosmith, but it will forever haunt my gaming dreams. The free song that was released for Guitar Hero 3, "Sweet Emotion", is probably one of the easiest Downloadable songs to date. Aerosmith isn't known for having edgy riffs or killer solos. There are a TON of other bands and musicians that would better deserve a game revolving around their music like, I don't know, JIMI HENDRIX! I mean the guy reinvented the way people look at the electric guitar. Of the 3 Guitar Hero games, minus Rock the 80's, there has only been ONE song from Jimi. It doesn't even have to be Jimi for me to feel comfortable buying a GH game based around a band. But Aerosmith is most certainly a poor choice on part of the developers. I would say avoid this as much as possible.
I am not even a big fan of rock and roll, but i stilll LOVE this game. Its is awesome ti experience being a rocker, being in a band. There are a lot of great songs here. The career gameplay is great and i loveed it !!! It is great to play this game with friends, and i would definitely reccomend it, especially for hardcore gamers
When I heard they were going to come out with a Guitar Hero Aerosmith I was really exited. But just to make sure it just wasn't another game like Rocks the 80's, I rented it first. RIGHT CHIOCE. This game is nothing like I thought it would be. As soon as I opened the case I could play two non-Aerosmith songs. So I played another and another and another and another and I had no Aerosmith songs. And when I got to the Aerosmith encores, it was two songs i've never heard of and they were 2007 re-done tracks. Right then I knew this game was not worth the full price at Gamestop. So I kept playing through career and I came upon even Dream on and Sweet Emotion were 2007 re-done tracks and sounded like a computer and not Steven Tyler. Even the Run DMC songs didn't sound right. And sometimes the graphics looked like PS2 or Wii. Trust me, i'm a huge Aerosmith fan and this is not Aerosmith.
