    Fun Pending on who you are.

    It seems rock is making a comeback with people and it's mostly gamers. Jam Sessions puts a guitar in the hands of the DS player. But don't be expecting a guitar hero experience instead be ready to strum along to songs. ... Read Full Review

    pretty hollow

    this game gives people the idea that they can really play guitar, which is great, because jam sessions really DOES make it easier to play music (on a virtual instrument). unless you have a knowledge for notes, chords, an... Read Full Review

    A great tool/toy, but not much of a real game

    The game starts out with a quick tutorial, showing you what to do, then immediantly throws you into the menu screen. At this point there are a few options. There are only two out of four that you will only really use. ... Read Full Review

    Its literally a guitar in your pocket, the musicians dream.

    Its pretty simple, it doens't need a huge review. You can play a song while your on break at work, sitting in the front seat of a car, flying on a airplane and even save it to show off later. It has loads and loads of fe... Read Full Review

    No, not even if you like music games.

    Maybe you have seen or used these personally, but some places have stairs or tiles on the floor that chime a certain note when depressed. These are entertaining and all but there is no way to perform anything interesti... Read Full Review

    Not without shortcomings, however still a unique and great non-game title.

    Ok, let's get straight to the point. If you are looking for a typical music game and want to mash out Perfects and get High Scores, then Jam Sessions is not what you are looking for. However, if you think you could ... Read Full Review

    Gamespot drinks Haterade...A lot of work clearly went into this title.

    Admittedly, this game is not meant for casual gamers, which is why it is not likely to appeal to the "faux rawk star" guitar hero crowd. You are not judged on ability to play songs, and there is no rock-o-meter... Read Full Review
