GameState | NBA Jam (PS3 and 360) Review

NBA JAM, the game that went ballistic in the arcades with the mighty BOOMSHAKALAKA! Most South Africans most likely got a taste of the game on the popular 16bit Sega Megadrive. The original has now made it’s way as a remake onto every console, the most critically acclaimed being the Nintendo Wii.

GameState got a 360 copy, so this review strictly pertains to both PS3 and 360 versions. The Wii gets left out of this equation. (NBA Jam, PS3, Xbox 360) 6.5/10

As fun as it is, I still reckon the 360/Ps3 versions should have been $15 downloadable titles instead of full priced retail games. I'm glad it is available to people who didn't want to have to buy NBA elite just for the token though.

Ye, that was my initial issue with this game. I think other sites were too lenient with their scores in relation to what you get for your money. Fun but weak.

Yeah, I have to agree. This should have been the price of an add on. Like Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare

Looks like a pretty lame game tbh... :(

I dont care how freaky-lookin those big-headed players look, this game looks like some old-school fun!

Ah the memories...I remember playing this when it was on the Sega Genesis. Was by far one of the best games I played. Used to rent it A LOT!

This was by far my most rented game in my 13's. Yes, i just said in my 13's.
BradyRuiters  +   1823d ago
13's??? Grant you know the Playstation was out when you were 13, right? Because I was 10 when I got mine. So maybe your 11's or 12's? :3

I want this game, hard.

Becareful what you wish for. I really don't feel it's worth the money unless you're renting it or picking it up in a bargain bin. I'm scared to say this, but I feel it's the Facebreaker of basketball games.

Same here and this one looks pretty crazy fun.

Haha! Just thoguht of something: NBA Jam 2010 suffers from Big Head Syndrome! :D

Agreed that this should have stayed as a download. I think they are pushing it a bit expecting full price. Remakes should be bargains.

They should have released this and some old EA Sports game in HD one BluRay as a collection. For PS3 because it only does HD Collections XDDD.

I don't dislike the XBOX360 (have the slim, too) but I like the HD collections on the PS3 and I want all collections on one system only XD
