GV writes, "NBA Jam holds a special place in the hearts of many gamers. Considered the ultimate arcade basketball game that both casual and die-hard fans of the real sport can enjoy together, NBA Jam simplified basketball to its barest essence. It’s been a long time since there’s been an NBA Jam title, and this year EA has taken the reins in an effort to revive the once classic franchise. Complete with a slew of new, if uneven, game modes, as well as hidden characters, and the tried and true gameplay that endeared the title to so many, NBA Jam has officially returned. Too bad it’s just a good game instead of a great one."
