NBA Jam sticks to its roots and offers some fun, arcade style, 2 on 2, basketball. All the teams are represented as well as key players. The sound and graphics are decent for this type of game and the play modes are plentiful enough to keep you playing for hours. However, this game suffers in the controls department. The controls seem unresponsive at times and your partner AI is all over the place. I wish there was an option to allow you to control each player. Other than that, those who rent NBA Jam will have a nice time for a little while.
over all this was one of the more anticipated games of the yea for me. i have been around long enough to say i played the original NBA jam on SNES more then a few times. this is a fresh update to an old classic. the game play is similar to the original with a MEGA graphics update. the game play is still fast paced but no matter how good u are at the game it will ALWAYS cheat to catch up, and sometimes just flat out destroy you. i am a HARDCORE gamer and for kicks i was playing on EASY. and this is a warning to parents getting this for your young child. i MANY times was shocked by the absolute BS that the game started to pull. it is exactly like it used to be. it still lives on as the most computer sided game i have ever played. the "boss battles" were a nice addition to challenging veteran gamers, but the amount of times you need to attempt them is a joke. a younger child would have NEVER beaten ANY of the boss battles even on easy. there is NO information on how to play them as in most game where you have to perform a certain action in order to gain an advantage. also there is a "REMIX" mode in which it really brings a new exciting aspect to the game. you can play Smash, Domination, 21, or a remix game(which is like old NBA jam) which has the power ups. as a side note all the favorite catch phrases are still there with a few new ones to make u laugh. Over all this is a 10/10 game it was EVERYTHING i hoped an so much more. have fun jamming it in there face. HES ON FIRE!!!!
