Expert Review

30 November 2009
  • Summary: Well, at least they got the title right. NBA Unrivaled truly may be without rival…as the worst basketball game ever made. Bizarre animations. Idiotic player AI. Ugly visuals. Unresponsive controls. Annoying sound effects. Developer ACRONYM Games has run the table here, screwing up so much of this Xbox Live Arcade game that it is virtually unplayable.
  • Pros: Plenty of licensed teams
  • Cons: Bizarre animations make it almost impossible to play, Awkward, unresponsive controls, Low camera angle obscures the on-court action, Terrible artificial intelligence, Awful graphics, annoying music and on-court sound effects

  • Summary: A solid arcade basketball title that was just short of being complete I think when it was released. Still a heck of a lot of fun.

NBA Unrivaled - 360 - Review

14 November 2009
  • Excerpt: NBA Unrivaled wants to believe that it's NBA Jam reincarnated. However, there are a few key differences that keep this from being an outright clone (whether that's a good thing or a bad thing depends largely on your opinion of NBA Jam.) And while most of the differences are actually for the worse, the core gameplay is still there making this a fun, if flawed, arcade basketball experience.

NBA Unrivaled

Gaming Evolution
11 November 2009
  • Conclusion: In the end, NBA Unrivaled just didn’t live up the title it was given. To true be unrivaled, you expect the included features and gameplay experiences to be better or worse than other games of a similar nature. NBA Unrivaled falls in between. It pulls features from games like NBA Jam, however lives too much within the world of simulation basketball, which limit the creativity and possibilities for a unique gameplay experience.

NBA Unrivaled

24 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Vaikka edellisestä pelikerrasta Midwayn muinaisen korishitin parissa on jo vuosia, oli ensireaktio Unrivaledin kanssa suorastaan hämmentävän tuttu. Jo pelkästään uran mätkintäpelimäinen rakenne matsi kerrallaan kovenevia joukkueita vastaan on kuin suoraan NBA Jam ista. Sama tuttuus tuli vastaan myös pelitapahtumien kohdalla.
  • Pros: Koris on kivaa
  • Cons: Yleinen sekavuus, ruma ja kömpelö, pelimekaniikka rikki.
