IGN: NBA Jam Review

NBA Jam revives a franchise that absolutely deserves a revival, and EA Sports proves with its design that the classic still has legs in this generation. It's an incredibly fun pick-up-and-play game with an insane competitive edge, and obviously it's a better multiplayer game than it is a solo outing. It's hard to shake the feeling that there's more to come for the franchise with little things left out for NBA Jam Round 2, but as a fresh start EA Sports nailed the Jam experience for today's generation.

Presentation - 8.0
Graphics - 9.0
Sound - 9.0
Gameplay - 9.0
Lasting Appeal - 8.0
Overall -

Yeah, I bought a Wii a few days ago.

The games Nintendo showed at this year's E3 were awesome, so I bought one. :D

In their view, a game that doesn't score higher than 9 isn't worth checking out.

was going to get it on day one,
but ill wait to get it used, then laugh at EA.

thats evil, maybe ill pick it up discounted but it would have been day 1 if it had online

Brasi822722d ago

When gamers buy games used just to get back at the publisher/developers for skimping on something haha. I agree tho, I did the same for Red Steel 2. If it had Online it would have been day 1, but without it, it was a buy used game to show my anger! HAHAHA!!!

tunaks12722d ago (Edited 2722d ago )

I actually got RS2 day 1, and I enjoyed it, not sure if multiplayer was ever promised though.
EA could have handled the whole exclusive -> multiplat - > no online a little better.

Why? You know most modern gaming journalists hate the throwback old school gameplay a lot of wii games have. I don't even check published reviews, amazon has many from people like me =D

I am so getting this game from XBLA when it comes out.
