Excerpt: Up until 2010's release, the last true 2D NBA Jam to hit consoles was Tournament Edition on the Sega 32X in 1995, and I'm probably not wrong in assuming you missed that one. Well EA has recently released NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, an improved downloadable version of their 2010 disc-based remake, and you'll be happy to know it's well worth $15 of your hard-earned money.
Excerpt: It’s simple, really: last year’s Jam was a great game, and this year’s iteration takes out the weak parts, works on the strong ones and hits a price point that largely negates the complaints you could have. If you don’t like Jam , we’d guess that you may not have fun, but we’d also guess that you no longer have the capacity to experience joy and live in a world of perpetual sorrow.
Pros: Refined core experience, good progression system, smart mode pruning
Cons: Maybe you’re just dead inside, in which case we really do feel bad for you
