Review: NBA Jam: On Fire Edition (This Is My Joystick)

Forget realism. NBA Jam isn’t interested in it and it never has been. On Fire Edition keeps to the natural roots of the series’ beginnings, leaving the game in its side-on perspective and is all about crazy two-on-two basketball. There is a huge emphasis on skillful moves, over-the-top dunks and breaking every rule of physics. While NBA Jam never had many game modes, OFE follows the same simple but addictive qualities that the series has garnered a reputation for.

The game consists of all thirty major NBA teams, with the usual star players synonymous with the world of basketball. Even with EA’s access to licences, the game does not go down the avenue of realism or simulation (but it certainly has the roster to add to its bank), so if you prefer your bounce with super realistic TV visuals, you are better off with the 2K series.
