NBA Jam - Nintendo Wii -
Switch Lights

The lights are on


In the height of the arcade era I probably spent the GDP of Burundi raining threes and shattering backboards in NBA Jam. But after years of success, the franchise found itself in a scoring slump and inevitably retired to the bench. After Midway liquidated its assets, the franchise license fell into the lap of EA, which just happened to hire original NBA Jam designer Mark Turmell shortly thereafter. Cue the Rocky comeback training montage and overdub it with a Boomshakalaka. NBA Jam is back, and it’s as good as you remember. This over-the-top take on the NBA trims away the fat from team rosters
