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.
Summary: I bought the game with the belief that you would be playing guitar along to recognisable music tracks as well as being able to create your own. I was disappointed to find that the majority of song tracks were in Spanish, and of those that weren't, only a couple were recognisible.
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.
Summary: I got this game for the kids. the price was so cheap it thought it was worth a gamble! What a mistake! They played it for about 2 mins and then lost interest and it hasn't been used since! Most of the tunes we hadn't even heard of before which makes the game difficult to play.
Excerpt: hi,Jam sessions is not really a game.With no hi scores.no turbos,you cant die.You see jam sessions turns your DS into a guitar.With built in lessons and songs.This is not like guitar hero more like a music programe.
