Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Of the few thousand songs in my iTunes library not one is by Aerosmith. I listened to Pump when it came out in 1989, but apart from that, my knowledge of the band is limited to what I've heard while browsing music TV or radio. Despite this, I enjoyed the band's Guitar Hero one-off.
Conclusion: If they made the game easier, so be it. I have no problem with that. There is a fine line between challenge and frustration that Guitar Hero 3 jumped across and ran far away from; Guitar Hero: Aerosmith took a few welcome steps back from that.
