NBA Jam Wii review

 

A 16-bit classic gets a modern update... or does it?

EA Sports NBA Jam

 

This rim-rocking arcade classic returns, and though it's missing modern amenities, it's still an awful lot of fun.

Game Modes

Fun, fun, fun...with no rules. And players have big heads

No online multiplayer. Game can get monotonous in single player mode

Scoring three in a row puts that player in fire mode. Once in fire mode, the outrageous dunks begin. Players leap like Superman towards the roof of the stadium before descending like an Olympic diver performing a triple somersault in the pike...

NBA Jam Review

 

“Tonight's Match-Up - NBA Jam vs. Wii”

NBA Jam for the Wii, like its predecessors, is a blast to play and embodies the same legendary fast-paced gameplay and excitement that people have come to expect from the series - a feat that only a handful of games of this vintage can replicate. EA...

NBA Jam

 

Boomshakalaka! The classic baller is back.

Fantastic update to classic game ; Audio and video presentation is top notch, yet quaintly retro ; Overwhelming amount of content

No online multiplayer ; Baffling controller and interface quirks ; Single-player mode gets repetitive after a while

I agree, the game definitely suffers because of the strange shortcomings in the interface.

NBA Jam

 

Nostalgia is a huge factor in the video game industry. Whether it was the Christmas where you got your first game console, or the game that kept you

NBA Jam for the Wii is exactly what you would want NBA Jam for the Wii to be just missing online play. The NBA Jam experience is alive and well on the Nintendo Wii and for those who may have never played a game of NBA Jam or those wanting to relive old...

NBA Jam

 

Let's go ballin' like it's 1993!

So, apart from the lack of online (which is aggravated by an erroneous censor's sticker!) NBA Jam is practically the perfect game for people that love the sport but aren't into hardcore simulations. It's fun, you get to see your favorite players in...

Though it's a sports game and not universally appealing, Jam fans and basketball fans alike will love this return to form for a classic franchise. BOOM-SHAKA-LAKA!

NBA Jam

 

To those from my generation, NBA Jam is nothing short of a cultural landmark. When it was in the arcades, it ate up all of your quarters, when it came to consoles, it kept us up all night. Then, we grew up. We favored full-on simulations with complex...

Part of NBA Jam's legacy is built on its use of cheats, and the re-release is no different. There's your effect codes like big head mode, but key here is the ability to unlock a ton of hidden characters. Feeling political? You can unlock President...
