  1. The Legends Tournament alone is reason to own NBA Jam.
  2. 80
    The resulting relaunched game is worthy of its weighty legacy. "NBA Street" has a better all-around arcade-style game, but if all you care about are big dunks and big points, NBA Jam will deliver you to highlight heaven.
  3. As a nostalgia piece, this new iteration is a great 3D representation of the classic NBA Jam experience, but when compared with recent arcade basketball offerings, like the "NBA Street" series, it doesn't quite measure up.
  4. 75
    My biggest nitpick is that defense and rebounding is still an afterthought.

    What a game! From a easy 2 pointer to a massive monster jam. What else could you want?

    Great game, but not as good as the originals.
