Summary: When I first heard about jam sessions i was really excited. I just recently bought the game from amazon for a cheap price. I started playing as soon as it came in the mail and I literally I was tired of it in about 15 minutes. I play guitar so theres just no point of having this game. You are very limited to what you can do. Theres only 2 modes; free play and song mode.
feels more like a cheap tech demo than an actual game..

Summary: its sad. this game had a lot of potential, and a lot of potential for sales. a lot more care should have went into making this. basically you play the ds as if you were playing a guitar. kind of. you can select chords from a huge variety of chords and assign them to the different directional buttons. there is a bar across the touch screen and you strum across that with the stylus as if it were a pick.
Excerpt: "In my opinion Jam Sessions is not a computer game. You do not progress through different levels with a defined purpose, there is no story line, there are no baddies to kill, you cannot achieve a high score and you cannot die. None of the components of a game are present and it is not one. ****What is it?**** Jam sessions is a piece of software that turns the DS in to an acoustic guitar. It is ideal for those budding guitarists and song writers ...
Summary: When I first heard about 'Jam Sessions' I really got quite excited. The Nintendo DS is the PERFECT system on which to build some sort of portable virtual studio - I mean, it has decent sound, two screens, and even a MICROPHONE - not to mention touch screen control. You see, the idea of a portable studio that I can take anywhere with me, on the bus or on the train, and record song ideas that I have, is so appealing!
Pros: Could be cheaper than a guitar
Cons: Clumsy controls, no voice record, rubbish effects

Summary: In my opinion Jam Sessions is not a computer game. You do not progress through different levels with a defined purpose, there is no story line, there are no baddies to kill, you cannot achieve a high score and you cannot die. None of the components of a game are present and it is not one. ****What is it?**** Jam sessions is a piece of software that turns the DS in to an acoustic guitar.
Pros: Nice concept for budding song writers
Cons: Difficult to learn, limited tracks, no voice recording feature
Conclusion: As with some of the other reviews on this site, I must first point out that Jam Sessions is not a game, it is designed as a portable musician's tool. In that respect, most DS owners will NOT enjoy it.
Conclusion: In general this 'game' did not meet my expectations. It is frustrating that Sometimes when you 'strum' the string it doesnt pick it up. Also, theres not a huge amount of songs on there and the variety of songs isnt fantastic either. I would try and find someone you know that has the game first so you can try before you buy.
Excerpt: fin da natale ho avuto desiderio di acquistarlo,ma costava troppo. poi a fine gennaio l'ho trovato in offerta , invece che 40 euro a 25 circa, così l'ho preso.in realtà i soldi non li vale, quello che puoi fare è riprodurre della canzoni dal catalogo memorizzato (molte delle canzoni non le ho mai sentite) solo sulle prime 10 ti da una guida per suonarle, le altre... sei completamente abbandonato a te stesso e se la canzone non la conosci ...che fai?
