Learning and Creative tool

Penny Wise, Amazon

  • Summary: This is not a game. It doesn't mean it can't be fun, but there is a distinction to be made here. I bought this when I was 17 and did not have much passion for writing music so I really got little value from it but others might appreciate it more. I typically play rhythm games (Rock Band, Guitar Hero, DDR, Elite Beat Agents, etc) or other miscellaneous games. The DS is limited in that its size/shape is not quite right ergonomically for this type of program.

KUDOS to whomever came up with the idea - there is no longer any chord or song too difficult to play with this baby!

  • Summary: KUDOS to whomever came up with the idea - a believable $19 Pocket Guitar when teamed up with a pair of speakers! Kudos to the inventor of this DS program. ANYONE can play this and sound like a pro with a few rhythmic flicks of the stylus in hand. Bought mine for $19 and it s the best $19 I spent in a long time. With Jam Session, small groups can get together at home for a sing along. Anyone can now play impossible chord combinations.

Fun...For a Bit

Chris C, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm not going to get too deep into explaining all of the features of the game, just the main points, so bear with me. My main problem with this game is the lack of features. Yes, it's got all the standard chords and the ability to change them all slightly, but the game feels more like a tech demo than a full product. The inability to record vocals and guitar is the main dissapointment for me. It's got support for the mic, but you cannot record vocals at any point!

Jam Sessions vs Jam Sessions 2

C. Miranda, Amazon
21 June 2010
  • Summary: I didn't see a comparison review between this game and its sequel. Naturally I first opted for the sequel, because of the obvious added improvements. But JS2 was uncomfortable to play, no matter how much I adjusted my wrist, or the way I strummed the touch pad. Later on, I learned that the added improvements were not worth it, since the controls are very uncomfortable I thought that maybe if I played it long enough, I could get used to it, but I didn't even want to get...

Interesting idea, but not much meat here

Craig Maloney, Amazon
23 March 2008
  • Summary: My wife and I picked up this game on a whim thinking it would be a fun musical game. What we ended up instead was a good guitar simulator, and not much game. The guitar simulator is quite flexible, but only remains fun for about fifteen minutes. The song collection amounts to an anemic guitar songbook. There's no scoring, and little reason to keep playing once you've seen all of the tricks this one-trick pony is capable of providing.

Cool idea, but nor much to do.

Gregory Dobson "gregobs", Amazon
23 March 2008
  • Summary: This is an excellent idea by Ubisoft, don't get me wrong, but it is horribly implemented. The songs that are included in this "game" are more like sheet music, and after you play them there is nothing left to do. Jam Sessions, isn't as much a game as it is a pocket guitar, and I would say that it is worth about half as much as retail (15$).
