      You work through a career to unlock different songs

      Guitar Hero: Aerosmith for the Wii for one player you go through the career and unlock new songs by reaching a certain score, you get different stars which you can achieve 1 star to 5 star and you earn yourself money in order to buy a different guitar or a outfit for the charater. There are 4 different levels of hardness from easy upto expert. Easy at first I found it hard as it was my first go so you can go on practice and change the speed, once i picked up how to play easy really did mean easy! At first it was fun and I was always on it but once you have finished the level easy and move onto the level medium you have to do the same songs, you don't get different songs as there are all the same but on different levels, they just make it a bit harder each level you go on. On easy you only play the first three notes green, red and yellow, medium you play 4 notes green, red , yellow and blue etc.

      it a good game and is fun

      Guitar Hero Areosmith on WII is a really fun game its easy to play but when you complete easy mode it gets a bit boring because you have to do all the levels over again but making it a bit harder but on hard mode it is really hard to just even complete the first level. I like to go online and play with my friends or even people I don't know and you can also play next to each other and play two player. Though it does keep you occupied for ages and I really like it but I think they should let you down load your own music you want cause that would make it much better. But the good thing is that the WII is a wireless controller so there is no wires in your way. The only thing that disappoints me is that there is bearly any songs. So I'm going to get guitar hero world tour I heard its really fun.

      I like guitar hero Areosmith and I would recommend it to rockers.

        Decent Guitar Hero edition, but nothing special or new if you've already played other versions

        For those of you who have never played a Guitar Hero game on any format, you could do a lot worse than start on this game. The series of games have fast become some of the most popular games around, mimicking the way you might play the guitar and giving gamers the chance to feel like Rock Gods! The reality is that there are only a few similarities between the Guitar Hero guitar and the real thing, but it's the fun element, and the feeling of playing it that appeals to fans of the game.

        Guitar Hero works on the premise of having 5 buttons on the neck, as opposed to the strings you would find on a real guitar. There is then a strumming 'button' which you can toggle up or down. The trick is to correlate the relevant button with the strumming as and when the relevant string on screen features which button(s) you need to play. To this end, the strigns on screen come towards you at a regular speed, and you have to time it just right.

        There are differing levels on all Guitar Hero games, and I found that the Easy level on this game was a lot easier than on the other Guitar Hero formats. Guitar Hero III: Legends Of Rock was just about right, keeping an element of difficulty in it, but I managed to complete every song on Easy without even thinking about it, and was actually quite bored at times. The only one that caused me problems was the battle that you have to do against Aerosmith legend Joe Perry, where he challenges you midway through the 6th and final level.

        The same 6 levels feature on the other difficulty settings, with the difference being that Easy has 3 strings to play, Medium has 4, Hard uses all 5 and Expert really makes you sweat, comprising a number of different note combos, having to use the Whammy bar amongst other things.

        The songs are impressive, and I must admit I highly enjoy repeating the majority of the songs on the higher levels. Each level features you performing two covers either from a band that has toured with Aerosmith, or it's a song that Aerosmith has covered themselves. The third track is when the crowd chant for Aerosmith, and you then play a tune as the band. The fourth track is you covering an Aerosmith track, before the 5th and final track of each level being an encore, and often one of the band's biggest hits. My favourite track to play is Dream On, which samples Eminem Sing For The Moment, but you'll also find some classics such as Livin' On The Edge and Love In An Elevator, with the melodic Kings and Queens also being a pleasure to play.

        I liked playing this game. We got it through lovefilm, where you pay a certain amount each month and can 'hire' games and films, etc, for as long as you like. We tend to have a game for a week or so and then send it back, either choosing to have a film next or play another game. This is the second game we have had from them, and as we have not had to pay for the whole game, I can't comment on whether it's value for money, although you do need to have the guitar as they don't send that with it. The game is available for around the £30 mark at the moment, which I would say is a bit more than I would be willing to pay for, especially seeing as you have to fork out for the guitar separately if you're buying it as well. The game is actually a lot easier than Legends Of Rock, and has about 30 songs less, and many of these songs are by Aerosmith, so there is less variety, if I'm honest. I soon completed it on Medium within 2 days, and didn't feel as challenged as I am still when replaying Medium songs on Legends Of Rock, so it's almost like it has been dumbed down for this particular game.

        Overall, a thumbs up for the game, but if you're looking for something different to other Guitar Hero games, or something new to challenge you, you probably won't find it here. This one is probably more relevant to pure Aerosmith fans than anyone else.

          For Aerosmith fans only

          Having been playing 'Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock' since its release (and getting a little bored with some of the tracks), I was eagerly awaiting the first of the band specific 'updates' to the game, which in this case focuses on aging rockers Aerosmith.

          This £29 version of the game doesn't come with the guitar controller, so you'll have to buy that separately if you don't already have one. You can get hold of a cheaper 'third party' controller for £28.98 from Amazon, or if you don't trust having a cheaper guitar, you could opt for the £64 package which features Nintendo's own wireless controller.

          Not being an Aerosmith fan, I must admit that I only bought this game as I found it going really cheaply on eBay.

          Firstly, let's get one thing straight - this is an absolute cash in from the game makers. As the game graphics haven't been improved (only re-themed), you're paying around £30 just to get hold of 31 slightly dull (some are good) songs.

          Secondly, the difficulty level has been markedly toned down. This is especially apparent on the easy setting, where the majority of songs are very bland to play.

          Luckily, I play on Hard and Expert - but even on these modes, things seem a little simpler than in the original game.

          All Guitar Hero games are great fun to play, and this version is no different - but it's in no way as good as the original. With the bonus tracks available, there are around 40 songs to play whilst 'Legends of Rock' featured around 73. It's pretty obvious that this game doesn't represent as good value for money as the original.

          I would recommend this product to Aerosmith fans only.
