  • Summary: Jam Sessions is a music experience that transforms the Nintendo DS system into a portable guitar. Players literally strum the guitar via the Touch Screen and select chords with the +Control Pad. Now even the most "non-musical" person to become an instant rock star. The portability of the DS system makes Jam Sessions a concert-on-the-go, perfect for parties, commuting to school/work and other social gatherings. Jam Sessions appeals to a wide audience of music lovers and creative souls. [Ubisoft] Expand

  1. An amazing, versatile program that is perfectly suited for a handheld system. You can plug in headphones and silently rock out on the bus, or you can plug it into an amplifier, crank it up, and play for an audience. This is a must-have for any musician or music-lover.
  2. Don't expect this game to turn you into any kind of music expert if you're not one already, but if you already have some skill, Jam Sessions is a surprisingly good tool for any musician who wants to dabble in song creation.
  3. 80
    To put it plainly, Jam Sessions works on basically one level, but achieves near-mastery in it.
  4. 70
    The one killer drawback to Jam Sessions is that you can't play individual notes.
  5. 65
    While it's an excellent package worthy of further investigation for those interested in music, it's likely to be quite a disappointment to those interested in buying a game.
  6. This is no Guitar Hero, or even a rhythm-action game, but something more akin to a portable notepad for musicians. [Nov 2007, p.97]
  7. Jam Sessions is a neat idea and a unique way to tinker around with your DS, but if you aren't a hardcore musician, I can't see anyone finding much appeal in this title.
