NBA Ballers PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: NBA Jam, from the now defunct Acclaim, was a series that left a mark on the games industry. The over the top gameplay was something that captured the hearts of gamers the world over. Basketball games are still in demand, but it’s the truly over the top titles that seem to be favoured by those hungry for hoops. A new upstart from Midway in this newest addition to flamboyant basketball titles joins NBA Street and NBA Jam.

  • Excerpt: Midway Sports is known for taking an over the top approach to sports games, emphasizing the flash, personality, and hits of professional leagues over providing a true to life simulation of the games. Midway Sports brings that same approach to the NBA and streetball with NBA Ballers. The games don’t take place in the arenas of the NBA, but rather out on the streets and in the palatial homes of top NBA stars.

  • Excerpt: There is quite simply nothing to get the heart racing like a little bit of multiplayer NBA Jam on the Megadrive. Since that game was released, there have been a few vanilla-flavoured updates and other pretenders to the arcade basketball throne, but none of them have managed to capture the glam and glitz of the sport whilst still being fun to play.

  • Excerpt: Take NBA Street Vol. 2 and remove half the court, make it a one on one game, add a little bit of old school NBA Jam with its "on fire" mode and mix in some 21st century bling and hip hop and you have Midway's entry into the basketball court: NBA Ballers.

16 July 2004
  • Excerpt: NBA Ballers is presented as a reality show where you take a no name baller up through the ranks, accumulating friends and wealth along the way. As you defeat players of different styles and eras, you will unlock them for use in other modes. Unfortunately, almost everyone in the game is locked, so you're left with a small, disappointing list of players to use at first. The same thing goes for the clothing items for customizing your baller - they're almost all locked too.

  • Excerpt: I haven’t had this much fun with an NBA pseudo-franchise game since the glory days of NBA Jam on my SNES. Where NBA JAM allowed for 2-on-2 on a regular arena court, NBA Ballers takes it to the street, with playground courts and novelty game areas featured within the residences of some of the NBA’s most ostentatiously glamorous players.

6 May 2004
  • Excerpt: Ballers delivers as much fun as any existing arcade basketball game can, capturing the alluring lifestyle of an NBA player. For starters, MC Supernatural's color commentary is off the hook. There's no question, he's the spirtual succesor to the original NBA Jam announcer. You simply can't help but smile the first time you shove an opponent, prompting Supes' to respond with amusing one-liners like "This ain't Blitz ; we're playin' basketball!
