WorthPlaying: EA Sports NBA Jam Review

WorthPlaying: "The original arcade version of NBA Jam was essentially lightning in a bottle. At a time when fighting games were ruling the space, this faster-paced, stripped-down version of a professional sport not only survived the era but also thrived in it. Everyone from hardcore basketball fans to those who abhor sports games were lining up to make the big NBA stars pull off spectacular, reality-defying dunks. The subsequent home release a year later proved that its popularity was no fluke, as it did well on just about every console it touched and paved the way for subsequent revisions, imitators from other companies and various spin-offs. Almost 17 years after the first cabinet was plugged into an electrical socket, NBA Jam returns to the spotlight, this time on all three major home consoles. Despite the updated roster and fresh coat of paint, EA Sports NBA Jam is the same as it was all those years ago." (NBA Jam, PS3, Xbox 360) 7.8/10
