  • Summary: Street Jam Basketball features intense three-on-three street ball. You'll select your team from a roster of more than 40 different characters--each with a different style, speed, and special dunks. Take your players throughout more than 20 tournaments while climbing from beginner to violence mode. Playground locations include the streets, abandoned buildings, the docks, the park, the sea, the roof, and a skyscraper. Street Jam Basketball also features stamina bars, team managing statistics, and a multiplayer mode. Expand

  1. You'll have a difficult time mounting an effective defense since opposing teams drive the ball with lightning speed. [Nov 2003, p.156]
  2. It's obvious that some care and talent went into the making of this game. Unfortunately it just didn't dribble down to the most important part - the gameplay.
  3. 35
    Unfortunately a promising set of images couldn't prepare us for an absolutely lousy playing game of b-ball on the Game Boy Advance, possibly beating out the 16-bit era NBA Jam clones as the worst of the bunch.
  4. Unless you want to spend $20 to be bored to tears, you should stay away from Street Jam Basketball.
  5. Fails to excite in any way shape or form.
  6. Single-player mode has you spending more time trying to avoid getting hit than aiming for the hoop, which gets annoying real quick. [Fall 2003, p.54]
  7. Despite the intelligent control system, the on-court offensive action rapidly deteriorates into a quick pass, followed by charging the hoop to make the same basket shot/dunk over and over.

    Just play NBA Jam, rather than this crappy knock off. You cannot react to the AI at all in this game. They act far to quickly and it is impossible to get open on the offense end. They either block your shot or steal the ball if you try to drive. Steer clear. Expand
