Fun game - I would play this over a Ghostbusters any day (although I really want to like Ghostbusters the Zombie Yeti artwork is so good and I love the theme). Flows well and feels really nice to shoot. Toybox is a cool toy as well.

Aerosmith is one of Borg and Lonnie's best. The layout is absolutely fantastic - I love that each ramp can be hit with either flipper, the execution of the skill shot is the best as I've seen in any modern game - it's challenging and rewarding, and the fact that there are essentially three different skill shots that are really well integrated into the rules is amazing. I love being able to build my box locks and then quickly try and lock them via the skill shot before the auto fire kicks on. Likewise, if I'm close to getting a lock for the elevator it's really fun trying to get one of those orbit shots via a quick skill shot. The rules are nothing special but they really fit the layout and the theme well. they are straight-forward, but at the same time the little bit of nuance with what is added to the game if you complete certain modes is really well integrated. The game is just straight out fun to play despite it's basic rule set. The art is fantastic despite it being based on Aerosmith. I'm just glad I can tolerate Aerosmith music so I can play this fun game. If it was any other theme or band that actually resonated with me I'd own this pin in a heart beat.

Aerosmith is a fun game it has great artwork, great sounds and music, and the toy box is a cool toy. But, I won't own a Aerosmith because I think it's too similar to kiss and the rules are not that great and it's just toy box all day long no point in playing love in a elevator because it's not worth points.

Love the toy box, great artwork, decent theme integration, lots of information on the LCD screen, challenging layout.

I have problems doing the "lock" shot; I am more likely to lock ball by chance...

Surprisingly fun as a cookie cutter layout. More or less Kiss. Bad geometry for the ball lock. Seems to slopped in more than made on purpose.

A real players game. Modes within modes. A heap of ways to combine things. The wizard modes are a quite difficult to reach and are a bit hard when you get there, but that should keep interest. Art of course is great. Nice open playfield with challenging ramps. Fast and flowy but with pitstops for a breather. Great game!

Beautiful game. Has a cool 70's retro vibe about it. I'm not particularly fond of Aerosmith as a band but it fits the game well. The LCD animations are fun. Code needs work. All the inserts function but it has several annoying bugs & inconsistencies. Sometimes I regret buying it due to software. My TSPP, FGY & LOTR never reset & never feel incomplete, glitchy or abandoned. Cannot honestly say the same for Aerosmith. I enjoy the game but I'm dissapointed in Stern's coding & unlikely to ever purchase an early release in the future. It seems only VE's are worth buying now days (VE's are usually very polished & coded)

Update: Still no skill shot, still no smart button integration to speak of, still no attract mode, still no outline sounds, still has the KISS bug(s). Bummer. It’s a cool game. When will it they finish baking it?

I think this game is the perfect balance of fun and challenge. I have spent quite a bit of time on this machine and still think "I can do this better, I have to play again". The lock shot and right ramp are a challenge, but rewarding when you get them. Picking your song gives you options but not enough to confuse you. I wasn't a huge aerosmith fan but the music is great.

This game is fun to play. At first I didn't like it at all. Then played it again a few months later and thought why I didn't like it. Great multi balls and good flow. Only thing sometimes SDTM from pop bumpers. Good shot selections and but none are too difficult. Artwork and theme is awesome. LCD display doesn't distract from the game play like I have seen on most others. Just gives you the info you need. Not a big Aerosmith fan.,only like some songs. Could have put a couple more songs in. The only thing is with the song selection it is the same shots just in different orders. Overall a fun machine to play and would consider owning one, but Met Prem would be first.

Has Good flow, and good rules, but great art and great music!! ( Like Caucasian2step said, it has good rules and a interesting layout... ( Question to a player who rated Aerosmith pro/ LE higher than Batman 66) ( how is this game, that does not have as many interesting bash toys as Batman 66 has be rated higher? Also, How can Aerosmith pro be more fun if the love in an elevator shot always fires the ball down the middle?! I like the game more than i like kiss, cuz it has a normal lock, and better rules ( love the timed double scoring when you lock a ball.. Missed it a lot since Shadow an Indy 500 came out!!

Good solid game. Needs a bit code fine-tuning but really good so far if you like the theme

I played a pro and next to the chest there is not really anything else for toys. Art is great, has the real nice rockband 70 style. Music is good, if you like Aerosmith then you will like this the best. The game is fun but not more than that. Good machine.

Aerosmith is KISS on roids. Very similar ruleset, with some cool addition. Awesome Dirty Donny art. Thank the lord they used 70s Aerosmith music, back when they were cool. :)

Can't stop playing this game. It is so fun! Trying to get all 6 balls locked in the Box is just great. Has everything that a pinball should have, especially the fun factor. Highly recommend!

I played this game for the first time at the Pinball Hall of Fame here in Vegas and fell in love with this pin. You just get so much for a pro version. I also love the option to gamble/trade up to a better multi-ball. I love the art, animations, sound, lighting, and the modes attached to the songs. It just has a fun factor that's missing from a lot of the new stern pin's. Then there's the fact that my wife loved it, so I bought one!

Aerosmith, love it and hate it. the toy box is cool gimmick. frustrating when ball doesnt go into the box. Shots can be very difficult sometimes. pop bumpers love sending ball stdm for the drain. Artwork is awesome. multiball system is great. take the 3 or go for another.

I enjoyed playing Aerosmith at an arcade I just discovered. The game is lively and like the ball catapult into the box. There is a lot of random play at the top of the play field that makes things interesting. I felt like I got a good value for my quarters.
