    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

    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

    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

    It's certainly no Guitar Hero. Only good in tight spaces, when using a real guitar could become problematic.

    INTRO No, it's not Guitar Hero for the DS. It's not even a real game. This game simply turns your DS into a virtual guitar (more acoustic than electric). You 'strum' the touchscreen while choosing the chord with the d-p... Read Full Review

    Can be fun for a couple of hours, but playing a real guitar is still much funnier.

    This game (which is not a game at all) turns your DS into a guitar-like instrument, where you can strum the visual string on the touchscreen, and actually make some funky chord sequences. And that's all about it. You ... Read Full Review

    Although the game itself holds little substance the potential in it is tremendous.
