    AMAZINGLY UNREALISTIC YET FUN.

    There are many ups and downs to this game. For those gamers who are looking for a realistic game to play a real basketball game with rules well you are out of luck. In this game there is no out of bounds. There are al... Read Full Review

    I really enjoyed this game. The aracadic aspects of it really mad it enjoyable.

    I guess Ive never been a big fan of the basketball sim games. I prefer games like this, where you can do ridiculous dunks from half court, set the basket on fire, and stuff like that. This game is a classic and I hate... Read Full Review

    NBA JAM is a 2 on 2 "street" style basketball game. The game itself is very simple, and takes about 10 mins to get use to the controls. All of the NBA teams at the time were present in the game, and there were roughly ... Read Full Review

    10 Years later this game has just lost its luster. Give it a rental, and stick the the genesis/snes versions. Even NBA Jam T. E. on psx felt like a reshash. Every Midway game since them has felt like NBA Jam, so thi stim... Read Full Review

    Alright, Well I was playing the original NBA JAM on my computer on Sega and it sparked an idea to go and see how the new NBA JAM played. I felt that it is a little under rated, I mean 7.7 isn't that bad of a ratting for ... Read Full Review
