it is sooo boring
jam sessions is definiteley NOT what i expected. i thought it would be so fun. I begged my dad for it for christmas but when i got it i was so dissapointed. I was very upset. The game only lets you play these songs that they chose and no ones even heard of them. In the commercial people were playing with it and smiling so it looked fun but when i actually tried it i was so mad i was like man i thought they said this was fun but its really not. They only let you play songs that they chose and you play your own songs and you can record them. For anyone that wants to buy this game and thinks it looks fun DONT. Its just a waste of money. You dont even have to play the entire song you can just scroll down to the bottom and play the last few cords and then your done .Every time i go to play this game i think maybe it will be fun this time but then i remember why did i even want this game? Dont buy this game it is a waste of time and money.
Why do people keep saying that jam sessions sucks? It's incredibly awesome! You can play any guitar song in the universe and record it. It even lets you sing to it (which is recorded too). You guys gotta give jam sessions some props man. Come talk to me when On Tour lets you play any guitar song in the universe... Plus, the graphics are pretty awesome. The themes and designs are sweet. And the animations are nice and smooth (not to mention fluid). If you still have any doubts, just read the Nintendo Power issue where they did a whole spread on it and Andy played it as his guitar in Hidari Mae (which, by the way, is an awesome band). The chord changes and strumming are spot on and the sound is based on real Santa Cruz guitars. To put it simply, the sound is excellent. And hey, won't believe this. I wrote this entire review from my Wii using the Internet Channel (no keyboard!).
This game is pretty boring. Not a good song variety. I beat the game in about two hours. The whole game is boring there are no good songs except for about three. And one of them you have to enter a cheat code to get it. It’s called Wild Thing. Another good one is by rascal flats. But it’s only **** now. It’s still not worth that. I paid ****. If I were you and you don't own this game and are thinking of buying it wait. Because a better game is coming out called, Guitar Hero On tour. It looks sweet. It gives you plug in frets a pick. And you can’t go wrong with guitar hero. That game always has the best songs. Way better than Jam sessions. Just look at the vids for guitar hero and look at the reviews for jam sessions. So that is about it I gave it a 3 because it sucks big time. But it’s not the worst game.
Looking forward to it
I cant wait for this game to come out. I'm not much of spender when it comes to DS games but with this one I think I'm gonna fork out the money. My only wish is that they would include electric guitar's on this as well. But I'm all for acoustic.
Buy with Caution
This game is NOT what I expected. At first I thought it would be okish, but no it’s worse. You DONT get to play any song you want. Oh sure you can CHORD them but that is it. And the song selection sucks except for like 2 songs. Oh and get this, (lol) your playing by YOURSELF. There is NO music that goes along it’s just you. This game will be one of those ones kids buy for quick entertainment on a trip to Florida or something. It’s not that challenging at all. I finished it within an hour. You don’t even have to play the song right. The guitar sound is great and that is the only good part about it. I'd recommend you wait for Guitar Hero: On Tour. Because right now I'm heading up to Gamestop to turn this game back in and get some little money for another game.
THIS IS NOT A GUITAR HERO GAME
alot of people think this will be a game like guitar hero or a similar game like guitar hero but its NOT.This game is an actual game in which you learn to play guitar you compose songs and you play songs.This game is a way better game than guitar hero because guitar hero is just press buttons while this you actually play songs and compose songs so to all you people who think this is a guitar hero imitation game it is not this is a simulation game in which you learn to play guitar unless your a real guitarist or want to learn guitar this is the perfect game for you.
this looks great, 10 year olds are crazy.
this is the right kind of thinking that keeps Nintendo on top as the most innovative. plus this is one of the highest selling games in Japan. if you do get it, there is alot of things your not getting. also there is lots music out there that is comeing from Nintendo based devices, like nanoloop, lsdj, and finaly jam session. great job! i look froward to this. p.s. i tryed to buy one in japan a few mouth ago under is japan release title, and i could not find one. They were all soud out. in akihabara!
Just Ordered This From Japan
Just ordered this from Japan. This game is like so much fun. Ive oplayed a demo and it was awesome, but the demo was missing everything except the guitar. So i had to order it to see how the other features were. Two Words: It rocks!!! oh and you can play two other types of guitars. There are twenty installed songs and you can play them. The more you play the more backrounds and strings you unlock
This is not from the people who brought you Guitar Hero, that was Red Octane and Harmonix. This is Ubisoft. And for the unaware, this isn't an actual rhythm game, it is a guitar simulated on screen. You don't play along with anything, you compose music by hand and play it on the DS. I've played it and unless you play guitar it is complicated and boring.
This simply is just brilliant! Its handy, you dont have to lug around a guittar with you. You don't need any experience at all and you can take it anywhere with you! You can play music and hook it up to speakers!I find it cool because I have always wanted to play guittar but I simply suck at it and my dad and brother play guittar. lol. Thanks Ubisoft!
