Summary: jam sessions is definiteley NOT what i expected. i thought it would be so fun. I begged my dad for it for christmas but when i got it i was so dissapointed. I was very upset. The game only lets you play these songs that they chose and no ones even heard of them. In the commercial people were playing with it and smiling so it looked fun but when i actually tried it i was so mad i was like man i thought they said this was fun but its really not.
Summary: This game is pretty boring. Not a good song variety. I beat the game in about two hours. The whole game is boring there are no good songs except for about three. And one of them you have to enter a cheat code to get it. It’s called Wild Thing. Another good one is by rascal flats. But it’s only **** now. It’s still not worth that. I paid ****. If I were you and you don't own this game and are thinking of buying it wait.
Summary: i bought this game for my teen becausse she likes guitars but doesn't know how to play well. when she got the game she started playing for hours. in about a day she had completely finished playing all the songs. the only disapointing feature is that there is a small amount of songs you can practice like 20 songs maybe.
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.
Summary: I was very disappointed in Jam Sessions, because it did not provide a rhythm to strum to, only the notes to play. The stylus isn't the easiest tool to manuever as a guitar pick. Wasn't as accurate as I would have hoped.
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 ...
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.
