NBA Jam, the quarter-chewing franchise from arcades of yore is back on the Wii, and in the spirit of the Xbox 360’s Tecmo Bowl update, fans can expect the same great gameplay in a refreshingly stripped down and classic style that doesn’t force you to learn the game inside and out in order to have fun.
NBA Jam was always the kind of game, featuring 2-on-2 basketball action, where players of all races, creeds, and genders could get together and play at parties, trash-talking and hand-slapping all the way to victory. Now it’s back with updated graphics that don’t sacrifice what made Jam popular in the first place. Thank EA Sports for this one, kiddies. And let the games begin!
