Excerpt: NBA Ballers Chosen One on the Sony Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 comes to us from our good friends at Midway. This is an arcade style basketball game in the vein of NBA Jam (editor: for those that go back a few years). Plenty of NBA talent is included from a diverse array of time.
Conclusion: IF looking for a good basketball game get any old 2k sports NBA game for a cheap B-ball game, and the 2k6 generation games for really quick and easy 1000k GS. DO NOT PLAY! It will only decrease your achievement unlock ratio and leave you with either a broken controller or a very "unclean feeling"...
Conclusion: In the audio front, the play-by-play commentary
from Chuck D is pretty good and we’re just glad
that he doesn’t repeat the script too often. The
sound effects fair better than most street ball
games out there but the musical piece is
Summary: Midway has done an excellent job with NBA Ballers: The Chosen One. Did it make me want to sell my Genesis and the original NBA JAM? No. I enjoy the Ballers franchise but with the inclusion of the Street Series I really have no preference of one over the other.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is EA Sports and Midway take turns year in and year out in bringing us street basketball games. This year it is Midway’s turn with NBA Ballers: Chosen One. As far as history goes, the NBA Street series by EA Sports have been beating on Midway’s effort for years now.
Conclusion: This game is definitely not the Chosen One. As far as street or arcade-style basketball games go, this is a far cry from what you'd expect. Taking too many strides towards "legitimate" basketball loses all of the charm, and frankly the fun-factor, that we've come to expect from this genre.
