The game has received generally mixed reviews. Many reviews found the game avoided some of Aerosmith's \"more popular sugar-coated hits...like 'Amazing', 'Crazy', or 'I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing' [sic]\", but felt that other major Aerosmith songs could have also been included. Game Informer noted that \"creating a band specific game was smart\", but that \"very little has changed from the base game\". They also complimented the great job that Activision did with their motion captures of Aerosmith. The difficulty of the game was not to be found as hard as Guitar Hero III due to the \"very riff-friendly guitarist\" Joe Perry; while reviewers felt this was a good correction from the previous game, they also noted that the easiness of Guitar Hero: Aerosmith led to some bland tiers, repetitive musical sections, and lack of any significant difficulty curve. The length of the game was poorly received, with reviewers commenting that it is difficult to justify the title priced equivalently as other next-generation console full games. Eurogamer commented that one's appreciation for the game \"lives or dies based on [the player's] fondness for Aerosmith\", and that ultimately, with other available music games that offer additional downloadable songs, a game that focuses on a single band would need \"to offer gameplay innovations, spectacular fan service, or a lot more material\" than what Guitar Hero: Aerosmith provides. Reviews also noted the sparseness of downloadable content.
The PC version of guitar hero Aerosmith, the World Tour, and rock legends such as Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd were all released. You can still find the game discs on eBay and other places, but it was never available through Activision.
There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on personal preferences and opinions. Some people may feel that the song is best played on a guitar hero controller, while others may find that it sounds better on a regular guitar. Ultimately, it is up to the individual to decide which instrument they feel gives them the best experience when playing the song.
