Aerosmith Fan or Not, This is a Solid Title 0

In the summer of 2007 Activision released the Harmonix-created Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's. The game had a solid but extremely short tracklist and very little in the way of change to the Guitar Hero 2 formula. To top it all off, it was fifty bucks! The game was seen as a cash in but saved mainly due to its solid setlist. Nearly a year after Rocks the 80's we're faced with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith which covers mostly Aerosmith while also including songs from bands that played with or "inspir...

Too Much Money, And Not Enough Content 0

Guitar Hero Aerosmith is the latest entry in the popular Guitar Hero series. Though, this isn't the greatest one...The worst thing about this game isn't it's gameplay or controls, it's just that there is not enough songs in this game. Even if you are a big Aerosmith fan, someone who owns all or some of the albums (like me), it still is not worth sixty dollars. There is only 40 to 45 songs in the game, which may seem like a lot to some people, but that includes the bonus songs. That seems especia...

Same Old Song and Dance 0

Ha HA! Aren't I clever, see I made the title of this review a direct allusion to the title of an Aerosmith song (which, ironically, isn't in this game)! Hey have you played Guitar Hero? Do you like Aerosmith? Would you like to see them put together in one inconvenient and phoned-in package? Well, ok then. Here you go.Let's get started with the nitty-gritty here. It's Guitar Hero but with a decent but not spectacular selection of Aerosmith songs and songs by other artists that "inspired or opened...

it's fine, but needed MORE TO IT! 0

Well today, i bought this game. I popped it in my PS3, and started playing it. My first impression was "What's the difference for III?" I mean, with a game this hyped, I would've expected them to have changed some. The way the fret board looks, anything. But no, nothing really changed but the songs. I felt sorta peeved at first, that I spent 60 dollars for a game exactly the same as the last one. I kept thinking that I could've just downloaded a bunch of Aerosmith songs on III if I wanted to pla...

A solid entry in the Guitar Hero franchise. 0

Let me ask you a question:  Do you love Guitar Hero, and do you love Aerosmith?  If you said yes, congratulations! You can enjoy Guitar Hero:  Aerosmith!I, for one, love both of those so this seems a natural fit for my tastes.  And what a solid, safe game it is.  This entry features over 40 songs and about 25 Aerosmith master tracks.  The tracks themselves are all solid but there are a few omissions that are very unwelcome.  There is no "Cryin'", "Dude (Looks Like A Lady)", or "Eat The Rich."  T...

The Cash Cow Milkith 0

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is a mixed bag for both Guitar Hero fans and Aerosmith fans alike.  First off the Guitar Hero franchise in my opinion is in the dumpster as it stands now.  It seems like it has just lost so much class since the departure of Harmonix.  They really were the "special sauce" that held the franchise together.  When you compare this game and the last to Rock Band you can feel which is superior.  Musically Harmonix just "get it".Now on the Aerosmith front I have to admit I do lik...

Same Old Song and Dance 0

Pros Neat Aerosmith design on the Guitar Controller. Theres some nice, classic tunes to be played. Video of the band recalling past shows and experiences is good for Aerosmith fans. Cons Theres some tunes that I personally feel ought to be in there that are missing. The games short. It's easier in comparison to previous Guitar Heroes. Like them though I do, I know Aerosmith is not every ones first choice for a Guitar Hero game based on a single band. I finished it not all too long after my ent...

For the Aerosmith fans under 40. All three of them. 0

You would think that a review of Guitar Hero Aerosmith would be as simple as asking the player two questions: one, did you like Guitar Hero 3 and two, do you like Aerosmith (and perhaps three, are you offended by Steven Tyler's massive virtual pie hole). Thankfully there is just a little more to it then that. Liking, or at least tolerating, Aerosmith is still a requirement, but there have been a few subtle changes since the last game, and all of them for the better.It would seem that Activision ...

It might be worth it just to play Dream On and Cat Scratch Fever 0

Let's face it, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith is pretty much Guitar Hero 3. There are a few adjustments (the most notable being the hammer ons and pull offs aren't mushy feeling) but the one thing that makes it stand out the most other than it being mostly Aerosmith is it's lack of content. It's not that 41 songs isn't a lot of songs, or that any of the songs aren't fun to play, it's the fact that its asking for 60 dollars for what should be something that goes for about 40. Yet, the content you do get ...

GH fan? Rent it. Aerosmith fan? Buy it. Both? Perfect! 0

Positive:+ Guitar Hero = FUN+ Aerosmith guitar style fits the gameplay well+ perfect for fans of the bandNegative: - it's exactly the same as GHIII- really short and not too challengingGuitar Hero is a franchise that has established itself in the gaming world with some of the most fun and addicting gameplay out there. With the first band-centered game in the series, GH: Aerosmith does a great job of delivering to fans of the band, but for the rest of us it's just more songs to play.There are sev...

A Poorly Priced Guitar Hero That's Worth the Rental 0

Guitar Hero Aerosmith relies on your opinion of Aerosmith. If you are a fan, chances are good that you will enjoy this game. If you don't enjoy their music, you can definitely skip this GH outing without feeling like you missed much.Unfortunately for GH:A, the value is far from exceptional. With only 41 total songs, you start to question what Activision was thinking when they decided on a $60 USD price. Also, if you are a fairly exceptional Guitar Hero or Rock Band guitar player, you won't have ...

Who else remembers "Revolution X"? 0

Guitar Hero : Aerosmith : A rhythm game where the game orders players to press coloured buttons at the precise right moment the game tells you to. To cover up the oppressive nature of this practice, the game plays rock music in the background to make the player feel like a rebel. This instance of false empowerment focuses on being themed after AEROSMITH, the supposed biggest rock band of all time, though players won’t know that playing this game since half the songs in the damn game aren’t their...

Same Old Song and Dance (A Huge Aerosmith Fan's Take) 0

The Guitar Hero franchise is perfect for Aerosmith. Throughout their respective existences, they have both been label as innovative at one time or another.  Both have also been labeled as “sell-outs”.  As a fan of either, you must except these fact and move on… just enjoy the ride!  So, consider this:  GH:A is not a step forward for the franchise, nor is it particularly innovative.  However, it will satisfy your urge for more plastic guitar mashing and KISS style hip-shaking.   Overall, the trac...

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith review EN ESPAÑOL 0

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith review EN ESPAÑOL    Reseña escrita por Ryan Davis, traducción por Darth Stone.   Incluso si eres súper fanático de Aerosmith, la extraña y corta selección de canciones hacen que este titulo sea difícil de recomendar.    Guitar Hero: Aerosmith es, según Activision, el primer titulo de muchos que saldrán específicamente sobre una banda de rock, un concepto que yo encuentro dudoso de entrada, y no ayuda que Guitar Hero: Aerosmith sea un producto armado sin mucho cuidado, co...

Standard Guitar Hero Fare 0

OverviewLet's start with a question: Is there anything wrong with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith? The answer is no, not particularly. Here's another one: Is Guitar Hero: Aersmith another Guitar Hero game? I'm in the camp that says no. This is definitely not a stand alone  Guitar Hero game. This is a song pack. Granted, it's a rather large song pack, but a song pack all the same.GameplayIf you've played any previous Guitar Hero and particularly the third installment, there's no surprises here. Really, no...

Guitar Hero: Achievements ... em, I mean Aerosmith. 0

Just like Activision has done with this game, I'll keep it short.Things they got wrong:Including only 31 songs in the career mode (with about 10 more to buy from the shop) but still charging the same price you would pay for GH3. Missing some of the monster Aerosmith songs from the setlist.  I wouldn't class myself as a fan but missing: Cryin', Janie's got a gun, Dude looks like a lady, I don't wanna miss a thing, Take me to the other side is poor. Heck I would have settled for a blast of Permane...

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith Review 0

The Guitar Hero series has taken twists and turns lately. The latest, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, is the first in the series to be based on one band. The game shows how Aerosmith took their rise to fame, taking the player through their first days all the way to the Hall of Fame. Guitar Hero: Aerosmith doesn’t do anything new with the gameplay or visuals but it still is fun to play, provided you like Aerosmith. The back of the box says the game has over 40 tracks, and it means just that. Toping at 41...

Review on game and bundle guitar. 0

Guitar Hero Aerosmith is nearly the same as guitar hero 3 except there are new clothes, venues, guitars, characters, but the main matter is the song list. Guitar Hero Aerosmith plays a lot like you are playing as Aerosmith. You have 6 tiers which consist of 5 songs. You start of with 2 non-Aerosmith songs and after passing them you have to play 2 Aerosmith songs before getting an encore song which is by Aerosmith. So, it is a bit like being at a gig, you have the opening act and then the band yo...
