    Greatest arcade-style basketball game ever made

    NBA Jam Tournament Edition is an improved version of NBA Jam. The game is a 2-on-2 arcade style basketball game with no fouls, outrageous slam dunks, power up abilities, and many hidden characters. There is great variet... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about NBA Jam Tournament Edition

  • Review Score:9.4

    NBA JAM T.E was one of the finest basketball game to grace the consoles back in the mid 90's! This game is pretty much an upgrade to the awesome NBA JAM, but everything about this game is just two steps better. Control... Read Full Review

    Fun game for playing alone and with friends. Great party game!

    Setup: NBA Jam T.E. puts you on the court for a 2-on-2 basketball tourney. You can play by yourself, with your partner being CPU controlled (and not very helpful), you and a pal can battle it out against a common hatred... Read Full Review

    Dont get your hopes up.

    While the graphics may be just a BIT clearer, the 32x version of NBA JAM delivers the same excitement as the Genesis version....Is that bad?.......OF COURSE NOT!....But if I had purchased this game new, I would be somew... Read Full Review

    The only basketball game worth playing.

    Now, I'm not a sports fan, not in real life, nor in games. So it was with some reservation that I began playing this game. However, all my doubt was whisked away. This is by far the best basketball game I have ever playe... Read Full Review

    NBA Jam at its best!!!

    I remember getting this game in 2001 or 2002. My cousins (they were the ones that were around my age) and I used to play this at my den on a little TV. We were having so much fun pushing each other around and slam dunkin... Read Full Review

    Everything you liked about the first NBA JAM on the game hear was taken to the next level on this title.

    My favorite basketball to date.

    In the days of the Genesis sports games weren't very popular to me. Today I actually have three or four different sports games, but back then I didn't play any other sports game aside from this. The reason is it was qu... Read Full Review

    Fun, but not perfect

    It is interesting to go back and play some of the classic games that you just can't but love. NBA Jam is a series that slowly got to the point of just pure repetition, but before that, Tournament Edition was an excellen... Read Full Review
