Joystiq: NBA Jam Review - Make New Modes, but Keep the Old

Despite the weaknesses of its new modes, NBA Jam iterates on everything that made the original so great. It's a well-composed love letter to those who belonged to the culture of its predecessor. It's the kind of game you'll want to add to your permanent rotation of Wii party games, dusting it off every time you're entertaining a friend or three with which to perform countless, physics-defying alley-oops.

More importantly, it serves as an accessible introduction to that culture for a new generation of gamers -- a generation which, up to this point, might be regrettably unfamiliar with the satisfaction derived from a hard-earned "Boom Shaka-Laka!" (NBA Jam, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360) 4/5

I remember playing this game at the arcades in grade school. Good times.
