    Review NBA Jam

    The very definition of Boomshakalaka

    Released amid a surge in the popularity of professional basketball during the early 1990s, NBA Jam rode the wave along with many other basketball video games. In spite of all the competition, it became a legend in its own time and is still remembered fondly today. Often sport-based games become obsolete a year...

About The Game

BOOMSHAKALAKA!

Jam home the #1 arcade phenomenon! From outrageous Tomahawk jams to wild full-court shots, you control the super moves, amazing blocks and awesome slam dunks of 54 of the NBA's hottest stars! Ultra-realistic digitized graphics and play-by-play. 4-player adaptable for true arcade competition. NBA JAM puts you on the court and above the rim!

Choose from 27 different NBA teams and take to the court for incredible two-on-two action. Each NBA team is represented and there are plenty of hidden bonuses to uncover with each hard-earned victory. All of the flips, twists, shooting flames, and loose refereeing from the coin-operated original are present, right down to the "on fire" streaks. If you make it too far into the game to lose your valuable progress, you can save your game with the use of a password. Whether you're looking for NBA basketball or a fast-paced brawl, you'll find plenty of both in NBA JAM.
