NBA Jam: On Fire edition review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Larry Bird is mocking us. He’s just taken a seat at the three-point line and thrown a fiery basketball – underhanded - through the net, padding the insurmountable lead he and Kevin McHale have established. “Ha!” laughs our teammate as the hapless New Jersey Nets fail miserably at defense. “NBA Jam is the only game where you can act like a jerk and it’s OK!” While we don’t necessarily appreciate the behavior, it’s certainly a true statement.
  • Pros: Wild, high-flying gameplay, Great online options, Kitzrow’s bombastic commentary
  • Cons: Cheating opponent AI, Start-up screen takes forever, Lousy, confusing menus

NBA JAM: On Fire Edition

GameTrailers
12 October 2011
  • Excerpt: Now this is more like it. Last year’s disc-based NBA Jam was terribly overpriced at $50 considering its lean content. On Fire is a much better value at $15 and worth picking up for anyone remotely interested in fast-paced, arcade sports games. The high-flying, elbow swinging, somersaulting, fire-balling NBA Jam is a blast from the past for those who fondly remember Midway’s original coin-op from the ‘90s.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition

Digital Chumps
9 October 2011
  • Conclusion: On Fire Edition is the best way to pay homage to the godfather of arcade sports titles. As I said before, no offense to the disk re-boot, but a game of this size, scope, and theme is what downloadable games are all about. Simple, fast, fun, and even funny gameplay/presentation makes playing a few quick games the perfect way to burn a half an hour.

  • Conclusion: The game has a lot of appeal. It fixes a lot of problems but there are some cuts that put a ding in the improvements. I like challenges but I hate how frustrating the AI can be. Play with friends online and locally and you'll have barrels of fun.

NBA Jam (360, PS3) Review

411mania.com
10 January 2011
  • Summary: NBA Jam’s biggest flaw is its price point, even if some people were willing to buy the $60 NBA Elite solely to have Jam. Fans of the original will love this remake, as everything is just as great as the original, if not better. The new modes, while fun enough to play, don’t outshine the classic campaign and local 2v2 games, and thus don’t play as big a role as they should have.
