The First 10 Minutes: Aerosmith

The First 10 Minutes: Aerosmith

Activision and Neversoft have developed a new game in the Guitar Hero series, titled Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. The game mostly features songs from that rock band, but some of the 40 songs are also from other artists. As I don't have the guitar close here, I actually played through these songs using the normal controller.


Doing a 10 minute video of a music game isn't exactly the most informative thing to do, but at least it shows some of the extra video content Activision has licensed. Other than that there really isn't much to say, the game is like the normal Guitar Hero game but this time based around Aerosmith. They have some cool songs to play, and of course it's a great party game.

The second song is really really long and if I had included it the video would have been much over 10 minutes, so sorry for the cut-off there.

good to see the drummer just doesn't randomly pound the drums like a downs baby like in GH3

I lost interest in GH when RB came out. Not just because of the instruments but because the characters in GH are just so FUGLY. They're like mutant muppets that I'd rather smash than look at... and to be forced to play as these trolls is just NOT fun. And I don't like all the crap all over the frets. It's hard enough to play the songs at high levels- but to have to sift through the junk on the fret is just a pain.

I like the concept of listening to Aerosmith tell their stories... but this would only be a renter for me (knowing that the RB guitars work on the GHA game on the Xbox version).

theres going to be character creation in the next guitar hero with drums, mikes, and bass. However i do prefer the rockbands anime looking characters...also do you think the RB2 will have music creation like the next GH? because i will go with RB2 if it does if it doesnt...GH4 for me!!!!

why not just learn an actual instrument if you want to create music? Much more freedom =\

RB2 does not have the music creation that GHWT will have, either way I would wait till more information is known about both.

GH: Aerosmith, I love it, the charts are much better than GH3 and the engine has been improved, specially when it comes to the HO/PO notes.

Rock Band is leaps and bounds more aesthetically pleasing then this.

It's irrelevant how?

About the game

    GriftGFX FFA deathmatch is pretty fun in OW even though it's totally not balanced. Great Tracer practice. (50 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The Orville episode 3 was amazing. Very heavy topic but handled it extremely well. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I wasn't really setting up any specific comparison at all. I said modern phones and many PCs. That's pretty vague. You can set whatever limits on that you want. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Granted.. synthetic benchmarks are just that.. but in Geekbench 4 a Snapdragon 835 can outperform a Q9550.. which is definitely faster than the E6600. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX My personal history of personal computing goes back to 8-bit computers. I think 2017 ARM CPUs are amazing. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: I said E6600.. and its single core performance in synthetic benchmarks is certainly comparable. But yes. You can go back to the 80s. I didn't say anything about them being modern. (2 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, a snapdragon 835 does not have computing power of a Q6600 (9 years old). Do you really want to go further in time to prove your statement made sense? (2 Hours ago)
