  • 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.

a good idea that's carried out poorly

  • 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.

I didn't really get it...

  • 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.

DULL!

  • 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. I know its cheap, but just remember you pay for what you get!

This is NOT a game!!

  • 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.
  • Pros: Ideal for those that are musically minded
  • Cons: Most suited to a small and niche market

Jam Sessions - Nintendo DS

  • 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. All the same it is ok for passing a bit of time and having some mindless fun. The graphics and sound are average and are suitable for what this game requires.
  • Pros: Good Fun
  • Cons: Limited appeal and longevity

An Acquired Taste

  • 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.
