Review by John Darnell:
"The Guitar Hero franchise's dominance over the rhythm-action genre came under attack last November with the release of the critically-acclaimed commercial hit, Rock Band. This fall, Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour will clash in a veritable battle of the bands, seeking to win the love and adoration of fake musicians everywhere. As a result, Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, released on June 29th for PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3,Wii, and Xbox 360, seems like an afterthought - an expansion pack aimed only at Aerosmith devotees and hardcore GH fanboys. Does this virtual homage to one of the greatest rock and roll bands in history make you want to just push play, or is it the same old song and dance?"
