Hannah Montana: Music Jam review

  • Being a one-person band
  • Strumming the hours away
  • Not ever playing story mode
  • Worthless music video editing mode
  • Excruciatingly-paced story
  • Weak minigames

Dec 10, 2007

We’re not supposed to be nodding our heads and tapping our feet whilst a cartridge of Hannah Montana: Music Jam is nestled in our DS. At the same time that we’re strumming guitars, playing slap bass, blasting out drum beats and wailing through blues solos; the vacant, dead-doll-eyes of Hannah Montana watch us from the game box’s cover, and her gleaming white-toothed open-mouthed smile appears to be emitting derisive laughter at our shame.

Never mind that creepy little girl. We’re perfecting our chord changes. Try to forget about the brain-liquefying minigame where you have to pose for pictures by tapping the same icons over and over for waaaaaaay too long.

Music Jam is a truly bizarre hybrid, a game with elements so disparate that there’s no way all of them could fully appeal to a single person. The story mode is terrible, but may appeal to young girls. The music creation mode is inspired and surprisingly complex, but may be a bit much for a kid to wrap their head around.
