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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: This is ok if you fancy messing around for a while and not having to think too much. You basically have a bar across the screen which you can strum at various backing tracks. I did find this game had limited appeal and it isn't a contender for games such as Guitar hero or Rock band.
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.
Summary: I bought this game with great anticipation, thinking it would be like "Guitar Hero" or "Rockband"... Oh, how wrong I was... The game is highly confusing to play without instructions and too simple to play with. Looking to buy a music themed game? I suggest you invest in Guitar Hero DS instead.
