  1. Gameplay elements are fun but we'd have liked to see beefier musical features.
  2. Jam Sessions 2 might not be the prettiest package on the shelves, but there’s no denying the appeal of a more authentic guitar simulation over the usual riffraff. Hopefully things will be tightened up for the next version, because right now, JS2 feels like two separate games – and not in a good way.

    Jam Sessions is more a “game” than ever, and while it works, is fun, and a valid music option on DS, it’s going in a very different direction than the original would have gamers expecting.
  4. I do recommend this title to any guitarist out there that wants to practice without lugging their guitar around, but for those seeking to just rock some licensed set lists, you know where to go.
  5. It has it's fair share of problems, sure, but I think if you're willing to put some time into you can come up with some interesting things from the title.
  6. The Recording Studio is a terrific time waster, but doesn’t offer anything remarkably different from the first that would warrant an upgrade. Songbook is an aggravating mess that would have been made more tolerable if there were actual recordings instead of covers, but I’m not sure even that would have made that mode worth completing.
  7. Jam Sessions 2 isn't a terrible game, but it seems to be a huge step in the wrong direction for the series.
