This is one of the titles that should had been left on the 90s vault of memories. As a former 90s teenager and now an adult, I am huge fan of akklaim/iguana NBA jam and it's 90s music and gameplay style. When I rented this game I was expecting a graphical update to the original sort of like Nba hang time was,and what I got was a huge mess of a game. Starting with the awful Hip Hop music and urban getto style gameplay. The soon as I heard the urban music I shut it down and shipped it back. If you don't mind the urban style gameplay then go ahead and give it a try but if you are like me and wished they would had stood to the original arcade style gameplay then stay far far away from this mess of a game.
Now that I look back at when I use to play this game as a kid, it was son fun and exciting. Now you look at it today and just say this game is not what it was before. I was shocked to see them remake such a great classic into a boring no show for remake. This game is great for kids but us adults, well for most of us adults I don't know about this game. If your smart please rent before you buy, or better yet read the comments and don't rent or buy at all lol.
