CheatCC says, "In trying to be a Jack-of-all-trades Jam Sessions 2 loses some of the focus and mastery of its core element as a musical tool. That's probably a fair concession for players who've been looking for something more game-like in the package. This sequel could have been an opportunity to build much more heavily on the successes of the first game. Instead, it adds a little here and there and expands into slightly different territory to appeal to a broader audience. Even so, it still manages to be an enjoyable experience."
