    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

    I'm going to use the Doom 3 argument here: Just because this came out a decade after it's early 1990's original doesn't mean the gameplay has to be improved over the course of that decade. Honestly, NBA Jam didn't need... Read Full Review

    For the same price you can get NBA Street.

    The problem with this game, as with many arcade sports games, is once you figure out what to do, it's insanely easy and gets kind of boring. There are two tournament plays that are both pretty fun, jam and legends. in J... Read Full Review

    Not the best basketball game

    The original NBA Jam was special, bu there's nothing special here. Just a sad parody of games. In the legends tournament, there is NO MICHAEL JORDAN! WHERE THE HELL IS THE NBA'S GREATEST PLAYER? The legends mode is bori... Read Full Review
