Summary: A very good rhythm game with a varied choice of different choices with the ability to download more. There is a good learning curve but which involves all the buttons on the ds. The only drawback is the looks of the game is a bit basic.
Summary: Jam with the Band is a rhythm game for the Nintendo DS. I've always been interested in rhythm games so I gave this one a whirl. It was exceptionally cheap and I'd heard nice things about it. The game itself is nicely presented with a very simple interface. You are able to play songs where you must certain buttons at certain times to pass the course of the song. If you fail to do so, the crowd watching your performance will simply walk away.
Summary: Although the tunes are rather poor quality, the variety of the 50 included tunes is certainly not, and the game itself is actually rather enjoyable, although not enough to become addicted. Basically it involves clicking away after the manner of most games of this ilk. Except that is when it comes to the singing bit, where the mic comes into play. To be honest I wasn't mad-keen on the singing bit, but then I can't sing!
Summary: I bought this game for my Boyfriend, for Christmas. He is a bass player in a band, and I thought he'd enjoy being able to play the instruments that are offered in this game. I've read a few reviews and decided to purchase it for him. I obviously cannot say about the gameplay, having not played the game myself, but from what he has said, it is good!
Summary: I know this recieved some dodgey reviews, especially official reviews from various websites, but i think this needs to be seen from a kids point of view. Its not meant to be a serious music kit for the DS, its a fun guitar hero/lips/music lab for the young ones to jump around to. From my point of view i lost interest in about 5 minutes, my 7 year old niece however wouldn't put it down until the DS went flat. She loved it and carried on playing it for a while after.
Summary: Initially interesting it quickly becomes tedious. This is a very much reduced Nintendo DS attempt at the wonderful Guitar Hero game but doesn't approach the quality or playability of that game. There is, at most, 5 hours of playtime as it is quite repetitive and the higher levels are very difficult to attain. Perhaps the DS format just doesn't cut it for this type of game.
