Nostalgia brought me here. The stats kept me playing. I loved NBA Jam on the Sega as a kid and for $30 I thought I'd get a few days of play out of it. I was wrong. Wanting to get through the career modes as well as the XP achievements Xbox 360 has to offer was fantastic. The arcade style is re-vamped and winning. I'd like to see a review from anyone that never played the original, because I thought this was A+! Well done EA.

EA seems to have figured out what NBA Jam was missing last year and went ahead and fixed it this time. Though battling the AI is fun, it's centered so heavily around playing with people, comparing scores and just having an arcade-style experience from the comfort of your living room that they finally seem to understand it- and if they can fix some niggling issues and get online working right, this game runs very close to perfect.

Reminiscing of the good old days of playing NBA Jam on the Sega Mega Drive, and hearing the words "BOOM-SHAKA-LAKA", has made this one of the better re-make games around. The amount of play-through modes will keep you gaming for hours, from standard quick games to campaign modes, boss battles, classic "21", and more.<br /><br />The amount of player unlocks and perks are endless, and will surely keep you playing for hours.<br /><br />If you liked the original classic, you just HAVE to pick this up!
