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: 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: I'll have to admit, this didn't sound like the best game ever made when I ordered it, as it sounded like something that would have been made in a shed by middle aged blokes! However, it's not like that at all! This game allows you to either sing or play along to 50 tunes which are included with the game. With the play option, you have to play in time, otherwise a "BAD" or "MISS" will appear and dock you some points.
Summary: I handed this one to my daughter (age 11) for a test run. She reports it to be easy to get the hang of, a lot of fun (especially the singing, she loves karaoke style games), and with some really good music. She wasn't sure how long it could hold her interest, but generally it seems to have a lot of entertainment value and be user-friendly. Update after several months; she's still playing it quite often, so it does retain interest.
Summary: I have to say in the past I have only ever played a 'Guitar Hero' type game at a friend's house and have not been tempted to enter into the franchise myself as I remained sceptical about the amount of fun one could have when playing this type of game by yourself, however 'Jam With The Band' proves that this type of game can be fun solo. The game starts off with Barbara the Bat (whom I slightly in love with...
Summary: It's perfectly forgivable to initially mistake Jam With The Band for shovelware from some dodgy two-bit publisher hoping to cash in on the Guitar Hero/Rock Band craze. That forgiveness ends right here, though. This comes directly from Nintendo as the sequel to the Japanese DS launch title 'Daigasso! Band Brothers', which attracted a cult following over here but never saw an official release outside of its home territory.
Summary: Games like `Guitar Hero' and `Rock Band' have made the rhythm action genre incredibly popular, so much so that other developers are trying to emulate this success. The Nintendo published `Jam with the Band' is the latest to attempt this on the DS. The game is actually contains three separate elements, play along, sing along and create. Each is slightly different and can be hours of fun depending on what type of activity you like.
