    It's a truly impressive alternative to the Jam experience that even excels beyond my nostalgia memories of that arcade classic in some respects.

    It might not hold a candle to a certain classic contender once Fall rolls around, HoopWorld is still good, arcade-y fun that particularly shines when you play with a friend.
  3. Anyone who's played NBA Jam will feel right at home from the very beginning of HoopWorld. You'll be passing, shooting and making wild dunks, but with a few twists.
  4. HoopWorld is not a bad choice for a quick and cheap round of arcade basketball, and those blessed souls willing to overlook the flawed controls might find themselves having a pretty good time.
  5. Unable to decide its own identity, Hoopworld feels both casual and complex, featuring mechanics that are too basic and unpolished for a modern game and a knotty control scheme that is sure to scare away grandma.

  7. Although there are many "this could have been better" elements in Hoopworld, it contains short bursts of entertainment once the goofy control scheme is learned.
