Your DS becomes a guitar, but without music games.

Common Sense Media
1 April 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is designed to simulate playing the guitar, so gamers expecting music games will be disappointed. Younger gamers might get bored with the game's simple, no-frills interface and lack of characters, story, and traditional gameplay challenges.

Jam Session (DS) Review

13 March 2008
  • Excerpt: When the DS first came out, there was this music program called Electroplankton and it was demoed by some well known DJ in the UK at a press conference. I don’t know his name, but I remember the performance. This video had the DJ’s equipment set up nice and ready to groove.

  • Excerpt: When the concept of Jam Sessions was made public, the possibilities seemed endless. Creating your own music is a daunting task, but only limited by your own imagination. Plato developed this virtual guitar game and is marketing it to professional musicians.

Gamer vision
17 September 2007
  • Excerpt: Name: Jam Sessions Genre: Simulation Platform: Nintendo DS Jam Sessions isn’t a game in the same way that Halo or Mario Kart are games. Hell, it isn’t even a game in the way Guitar Hero is a game. Jam Sessions is a guitar on the Nintendo DS.

  • Conclusion: As you've probably guessed by now, Jam Sessions lacks the certain intangibles that are required to have a proper game, and by doing so hinders the game’s value in such a way that it’s probably not even worth your money. There is no score, no multiplayer, certainly no objective.

  • Excerpt: With Guitar Hero and Ouendan universally recognised as two of the most refreshing titles of the last five years, and with Rock Band and Samba De Amigo Wii on the horizon, rhythm-based music games have never been in greater demand.

Official Nintendo Magazine
5 January 2008
  • Excerpt: This is a strange one to handle. Let's make one thing clear to begin with, Jam Sessions is not a game. There are no missions, there are no unlockable songs, it's not possible to 'fail' the 20 or so songs provided in the game's built-in songbook and it's not possible to 'complete' the game.
