The guitar hero Aerosmith edition for the PS3 is not too bad of a game. If your new to the guitar hero games then i would advise you to first off buy one of the standard games such as "World tour" or "guitar hero 5" as this will give you a much better variety of songs and allow you to enjoy the game more, however this aero smith edition is not too bad its self,
the songs can get quite tedious after a while as there is not a great selection of tracks as i said early and this can be off putting after a few days, the guitar that come with the pack is also pretty much the bog standard guitar you receive with the older games such as guitar hero 4 the only difference of course being the decals.
the latest editions of the game use a slightly different guitar so in my opinion it would be wise to buy these instead.
but if your a true guitar hero fan and are just looking for extra tracks then this game will give you just that
Activision thought it would be good to add to their growing catalogue of guitar hero games and started to make band themed specific titles. The first of the band titles to be released was Aerosmith.
This guitar hero incarnation looked unbelievably promising, so I went out and bought it!
The box includes the Aerosmith game, sticker sheet and dedicated Aerosmith guitar, which is red with the logo in white. Other than that the guitar is the same as in previous games.
The game focuses on the band Aerosmith, with all members of the band portrayed brilliantly in their graphical ways. The game takes you through the Aerosmith story, from when they started out in small venues such as the Mendon Nipmuc Regional High School in the 1970's up to the heights of their career with large venues. The game packs quite a good amount of songs too:
Draw the line, Make it, Love in an elevator, Pink and walk this way, some of the better songs on the game. However there a massive amount of covers on this album too, 16 in fact. That's a lot when you consider there are 41 songs overall. However this is due to the extra songs be either support acts or who have been close to the band. So this makes up for there being so many. Quite clever
The game play is much the same as the previous guitar hero game, hold down fret keys and strum the strum bar in time with the note patterns, which scroll down the screen. Complete the songs with as few misses as possible. And get a great score! Or risk get booed off stage by missing too many notes!
This game sold more than 567,000 copies in its first week and cashed in over $25 million. Not bad when you consider this game got mixed reviews.
Personally if I were to look back on this purchase I wish I hadnt bothered. While it has some good tracks it just doesn't do what the guitar hero games do. If you're a hardcore Aerosmith fan then maybe this game will be for you. But if your like many others who like some of their stuff stay away, save your money and get the next normal guitar hero game. Band specifics are only good if you love a band!
