Man this game took me back to the 90's standing at an arcade dropping quarters in the machine like they where pennies I love this game. This is the one game I want to buy from GameFly and it isn't even available for sale... that is the only thing wrong with it... my kids love it too

I enjoyed the original NBA JAM on sega and was looking forward to this, it was alright but didnt seem the same or maybe it was only fun because I was a kid then. Its a rental for sure and still plenty of fun. More fun if you are playing with someone verses the computer

My brother and I grew up playing NBA Jam, way back when. I was excited to hear there was going to be a new release for the Xbox 360. I've the game for two night and I'm ready to send it back.

When I first put the disc in and played the first game, everything came back. This is awesome... just like the old game... amazing. But that nostalgia wore off really quick. The game becomes very repetitive, the extra game types aren't that much fun to play. To win all the divisions in classic campaign just seems more like a total chore, rather than enjoyment.

I've tried to play 15 or so online games. The only game I have ever completed was my first (a loss). EVERY time my team was winning, the other team would quit. And good luck trying to find a match, outside of classic 2v2.

Overall, I'm glad I rented rather than bought. Apparently my gaming opinions have changed since I was a kid.
