I think this pin has a lot going for it. Really good music, great animations, a nice sense of humor, and one of the all time greatest ball locks EVER!!!! Not a really big fan of how this game shoots... I just couldn't ever truly get dialed in. Again, part of that is play better, but most of shots are just different from what I am used to aiming for and going for. Its a nice unique playfield and a decent rule set. I like that you can stack the light locks. And I like the risk reward for MB. What I don't like is the unique rule set for each song... I rather you enter modes for the songs, but pick a song to listen to when you're not in a mode like Iron Maiden. As there are some songs I like better, but hate the modes... While I really like the music, I think the callouts are really weak. But, the animations are funny, cheeky, sexy, and cool... Really topnotch animations. The upper playfield doesn't add too much to it... But, it does have some risk reward to it, as you don't want it to fall down the ramp and risk a drain, but going for the standups and upper loop, or even elevator and getting a lock are a nice feature. Fun game, and perhaps it could be in my collection one day... If I have a 50 pin collection.

Worst new game. They just figured F it, we’ll get a cool band and put and LCD screen on it and we’re good. I see people desperately trying to dump this game as fast as possible before it drops below $2k.

One of the best music pins to come out! Awesome job goes to John Borg and Stern.Game play is smooth and the artwork by Dirty Donny is one of the best. I was never a fan of the music pins and now I have 3 music games.
Aerosmith is going to be classic.

This has a ton of potential if the game code gets a good update. Just gets old and boring after a while. I have a large collection and most likely wont ever sell it but that being said it's still a great pinball and come on it Aerosmith!!

Super fun game. My two favorite aspects of the game are probably the artwork and the toys (mechanical action.) I love the way the ball gets launched into the toy chest and the start of multiball with Jacky shaking is super cool as the pinballs pour out of the toy box. The upper playfield with the elevator is one of the best upper playfields I've seen. It's great having to backhand the targets there and then have to have the ball run off your flipper to make the shot to the right. I'm not a huge Aerosmith fan but the songs in the game are definitely some classics and I really like the animations that were done, such a huge improvement in the fun factor over DMD games. All around a super fun game that doesn't get talked about a lot. ONE thing I would like to see better utilized is the "smart" button on the lockdown bar although Stern has been saying another code update is coming at some point so we'll see.

Fun game with unbelievable art from dd. Really looks excellent. Not crazy about the theme, but it’s ok. Not a fan of the upper playfield, and I don’t believe that it is worth the extra money. Do like the purple cab though.

Cool Stern band game with great art and a good layout. The cramped upper playfield is kind of weird. Stern LEs have taught me for the most part I like my games without mini playfields.

Played at local pin museum quite a few times. The game is ok but not super fun. The toy box lock was one of it’s cooler points and I enjoyed it. The flow was ok but not super smooth. I like sterns lcd back box but not a fan of the cartoon images they went with on AS. The lighting was decent as all new games are so nothing special. If I come across it in the wild I will play once or twice but I would never buy for home use. I’m not a super fan of Aerosmith but I do like some of their songs.

Great game with a variety of shits and fairly deep game play. One of the better pins Stern has put out in the past few years.

This game is amazing fun. I was set on owning a pro, and didn't want to spend more for premium/le but ended up finding a local deal. I'm glad I pulled the trigger. The added playfield is more useful than other games, as it adds strategy to hose you play and what to shoot for.

The lighting is amazing and the cabinet art on the Le is outstanding.

Both pro and le have awesome art from dirty Donny and the sounds are well worked.

The LCD animations are funny and entertaining. Other games utilizing the LCD at this point are just TV or movie clips and don't really do much for the game. This games animations are all custom and well done.

Overall a fantastic piece in any trim level.

Pretty cool game. I like lots of toys in a game and the playfield is a little barren for my taste. It has the main toy box and the elevator but as far as toys go thats about it. Decent flow and without the code the game would be a bust. The cabinet is beautiful! This pin is a good pin if somebody wants a music pin at a decent price. Right now used Aerosmith pins are very reasonable. I think the home buyer would really need to like the music or it would get old fast.

Rating on the LE. All around the best looking package Stern has put out. I had it next to my STLE and The AS playfield puts it over the top in the looks department. Straight forward/ easy to understand rules. I would like to see a little more depth. I like the large screen in the back box but again I would like to see a little more animations. The Toy Box engineering is fantastic. I really like to see people’s faces the first time they see it in action. I like the non linear rules as you can select your song up front. Enjoy the multi balls and the risk reward of toy box multi ball. All the shots are makeable when needed. Last improvement I would like is more rules tied to the mini upper play field.

Fun game, and I love the theme. If you don't want a deeper ruleset and like Aerosmith, this is a great way to have some fun.

Not sure if I would ever buy. The toy box is really fun, but after a while my attention wanders a little. I do not hesitate playing at least a game or two when I am out.

This is the only post-1998 pin that I enjoy. It's an absolute beauty, particularly in terms of the sound and music. I don't expect to ever own it just because of the price, but it's on my wishlist anyway!

I like Aerosmith premium/LE more then the pro because I really like the mini playfield and how it changes the game.

Great art package, a lot of content in the LCD, toy box is a cool toy. Those are the positives. Otherwise, the modes are quite bland, reminiscent of early Stern Kiss, they all feel the same, just shoot the flashing arrows on the main shots. Kiss has the cool shot and playfield multipliers that make it more interesting. Looking forward to code improvements to add something more to this game, it feels underdone on release.
