Rated 2 out of 10 by rainBRO NBA JAM, not HANGTIME...
It takes about 5 seconds on the main screen to realize the issue, no character creation. It also takes 5 seconds during game play to realize the announcer sounds bad and is just annoying and repetitive. Yes, the announcer did repeat the same words and phrases in the old one, but the voice just plain sucks in the new one as well as less phrases it seems. They would have been better off carrying over the old ones. Also the game seems to go at a slower pace then it should and the controls aren't the best. Overall this game sucks and is Jam and not Hangtime. If you enjoy disappointments, this game is for you.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Frank4969 Bland repetitive overpriced game
A really bad $60 port. Should have been a $20 downloadable game. The graphics are sub par. The background music is just plain awful. The gameplay is repetitive with no skill involved at all. All players play the same despite their ratings. No need to interchange players as they do not lose stamina after getting shoved around constantly. No cheesy halftime show like in the original. The only thing I can see from the original is the cheap way the computer cheats to keep the score close. Also the original announcer is back and is actually very good. One of the only bright spots. I would def. Not buy this again.
Rated 8 out of 10 by hammerofjustice93 Great for down time
This game is pretty solid. I'm not a huge basketball fan, but I enjoy the sport. If you are looking for a realistic basketball game you are better off with 2K. This game is like NBA street meets NBA Live. It's half real half completely unrealistic, which is completely ok with me. The Remix Tour is awesome! It gives you plenty to do with tons of twists. The regular campaign is kinda boring and repetitive, but great when you have nothing to do. If you're looking for a cheap game to pass time and be semi amused with then this is perfect. When i'm bored I just put in my iPod and play a few games.
Rated 8 out of 10 by MagicEyes It's back but...
I had the plesure of playing the first NBA JAM and I didn't think that it could be any better! Of course I was wrong. This NBA JAM was better! It has more things to do and my boys and I have a great time playing the many modes of play. But it's only so long that you can enjoy seeing the same dunks and hearing the same announcing. I'm sure all this time they could have came up with more to say and more dunks! Also some times you can block a dunk even if the dunker has a higher dunk rating than the blocker has block rating. Whick of course is dumb! But overall great fun game to buy and play!
Rated 9 out of 10 by therage Has a very classic retro feel to it!!!
Picked it up yesterday for the PS3, its worth the $50. Especially considering how so many games these days arent even worth the $60 price tag and seem like they have alot more to offer! Its all about gameplay and great gaming fun! If youre like me and enjoy a good highly addicting old school feel classic videogame, set with todays graphics, then this is for you! Tons of unlockable characters and different modes and online play!!! Rodman and Pippen on the Bulls, Magic and Worthy on the Lakers? You just cant beat this! Im a big fan of NBA Live 10 and i love this game. Go get it, trust me!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by GamerTech NBA Jam brings back good memories!
First off, if you weren't a fan of the original NBA Jam (Arcade/Super Nintendo) this game may not be for you. It's an incredible game, but while some, such as myself, love it to death, others will despise it. NBA Jam brings back the classic frantic action of what made the previous games so great, multiplayer (local and online) is incredibly addicting, and the extras (like that announcer) sweeten the deal. I'd give it a try, as I'm definitely enjoying every minute of it!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Hitman343 It's ON FIRE!!!
WOW is all I can say about this game. I opened it up today and played for atleast 4 hours. I am taken back to when I was younger when my brothers and I use to wear out that super nintendo with NBA JAMS. I love this game. The fact that you can unlock the legends is AWESOME. It is very much like the original. I'm so intense when playing that I am not really listening to the commentator. lol I don't care what anybody says, THIS GAME IS ON FIRE!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by aaronart AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this game its so fun that theres no fouls so you can do anything I love pushing my opponet its so fun and when you do this funny commentator makes a joke about it but I do wish you could use the Playstation Eye camera to make your face in the game that would be awesome overall its awesome oh and P.S my favorite word is awesome
Rated 9 out of 10 by Shamus Loads of fun
If it's not realistic basketball, then it's even more fun. NBA JAM is like a party game, that anyone would enjoy. The gameplay is good, and there's real goal to achieve on the court, except to see who can throw it down harder. I'd take Kobe any day. 9/10 Excellent game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by owen345 Harder Than It Looks!
this may appear to be just a kid's game, and if you just play campaign, well it is. Despite its childish looks this game has some very challenging points to it, like the over agrressive CPUs in remix tour. Overall this game is fantastic, with endless unlockables, and game mode
