Perfect Except for a Lack of an Online-Multiplayer Option
10 April 2014
Summary: It's a lot of fun to do the shooting motion with the Wii Remote. The controls feel great. This game will give you a good-feeling, nostalgic experience if you loved other games in the same franchise. My only complaint concerning this game is that its makers didn't create it with an online-multiplayer option. Destroying the computer provides limited fun and I don't always have someone around who wants to play with/against me.
Summary: This game takes you back to the days of NBA Hangtime on the Super NES. 3 on 3 game play where anything goes...pushing, elbow-swinging, and ridiculous dunks. Very nice graphics for the Wii and you won't mistake who's who. Nice unlock features keep gameplay fun i.e. Big head mode. Fun for all ages!
Summary: Summary |: A fun, crazy game that's great for parties. What's Great (: This game is endless fun of crazy moves and unrealistic basketball. Even people that aren't fans of basketball will enjoy this arcade re-make in single-player OR multi-player mode!! What's Not Great ): The rosters are a little dated at this point. What You Need To Know ?-: There is no trading so you're stuck with the teams you've got.
Summary: The game was outstanding, The mood is so like the past arcade game, it really brings back memorys. They need to keep producing updated versions to included today's players, and more of past greats (MJ)!
Summary: NBA Jam is a good game. It is everything the classic game from the 90's was. It is fun, silly, frustrating. I remember being better at this game 15 plus years ago. Maybe im just to old now. Get it you won't regret it. My only con with the game is the wii controller. I think the classic controller is better but to each his own.
Summary: What you get is the original game with added content/mini games that makes it more enjoyable. Anyone who played the original will be able to jump right in and those new to the franchise will not have any trouble getting into it. Just like the original this game does get frustrating sometimes because the AI just seems to always find a way to come back at the last minute.
Great arcade action but strays from original gameplay

Summary: For $20 or less, "NBA Jam" for the Wii is a great buy, but not as fun as "NBA Hang Time" (1997, N64). There's no create-a-player or hotspots in "Jam" (which I'll get to later), and my biggest pet peeve is how the game handles shoves. There are no injuries in "Jam," which defeats the purpose of halftime substitutions and limits the use of a shove.
