  • Summary: JAM Live Music Arcade gives you the freedom to become the DJ, producer and the band leader for total creative access in a live music sandbox. Allowing players to take on the role of lead guitarist, bassist, drummer, singer and synth player, JAM Live Music Arcade provides a deeper connection to the music through jamming, improvisation and exploration rather than all the emphasis being on the high score. Just grab any one of the plastic guitar peripherals most gamers have lying around (or your standard game pad) and you're ready to kick off a music gaming experience unlike any other. Expand

    JAM Live Music Arcade actually helps you develop your hearing through a musical interface that you can control. This amazing software is easily worth the 800MS price point it's asking and if you enjoy music or music games, then it's a must have addition to your gaming collection.

    JAM Live Music Arcade works better as a toy for jammers than an arcade game.
  3. 65
    Jam Live Music Arcade has some really good elements; however, some of the control issues and the games difficulty level may inevitably turn some people away.
  4. 55
    Track-building may be entertaining, but overall, JAM's an iffy proposition made worse by its agonizing Arcade mode.

    In the end, Jam Live Music Arcade is better than Power Gig, but honestly watching American Idol's worst auditions are better than playing Power Gig. This is a DJ game that tries to use your instruments (but not really) one last time in a final attempt to re-re-re-re create the music genre, which just falls flat in the end.

    The idea of JAM Live Music Arcade is good, a rhytm game that don't use KINECT, but sorprise the new musical games use KINECT, because if don't use the dispositive is highly unlikely that the game be successful. The music is great, the gameplay good, with some better things the game can be a hit. Expand
