    Great game to rent from the local video store, but fails to maintain much interest past that. Is relatively one-dimensional and the user can conquer all the moves in less than a few hours, if not minutes. The other detrimental aspect of this game is the AI. Jam tournament is beatable but nearly impossible to get through legends tournament.

    I don't think it has quite enough bells and whistles to dethrone "NBA Street," but if you loved Jam back in the day, you will find a lot to like in this incarnation.

    The game is fun for a while, and definitely worth a rental if you're going to play against some friends, but if ever a game and it's weak AI called for online play, it was this one.
  3. If you still want to feel that retro-love pick up NBA Jam, but don't expect to be blown away by its features or anything new, for there is truly a lack of both (except in terms of dunks? there will always be lots of dunks).
