VGC: "I bet I know what you just did. You took one look at the score above, and immediately thought, “Hey, what’s this guy getting at? He gave NBA Jam one of its lowest scores on the internet!” As a huge fan of the franchise, I unfortunately found this latest entry from EA to be quite middling. You may remember that I walked away extremely happy from my E3 demo of the game (heck, we even gave it our Sports Game of Show award). Well, in that scenario, I only got to play the game’s four-player multiplayer, and I can assure you that all the praise I heaped on it then still applies to that mode. However, there are some unacceptable quirks when any amount of computer AI is involved that can make the experience frustrating beyond belief."
