What's New in Version 1.1.36
We’ve made some off-court improvements to keep your game fresher than ever. Thanks for playing NBA Jam!
Almost the best
The good: This game is graphically stunning, has very responsive touch controls, and the difficulty level adjustments make it fun for players of any experience level. I also like that EA gave players the option of either paying extra to download additional characters or completing challenges within the game to unlock those characters. This is how all DLC should be; earn extras with time or money, but never time AND money (or just money).
The bad: The most recent roster "update" still hasn't improved the rosters to their modern lineups (didn't Steve Nash retire years ago?) and some of the player ratings are WAY off (how does Steph Curry have anything less than a perfect 10 in 3-point shooting ability?). They also got rid of Scottie Pippen as an unlockable Bulls player from previous versions, and as both a lifelong Bulls fan and fan of the original NBA Jam, any game that doesn't include him can't claim to make one "feel the '90s nostalgia". Put him back in, EA! And fix your ratings!
I love this game, but it needs an update. Everyone should be on the teams they're on now, followed with updated player stats. It would also be bought more often if done. It would also be nice to have the WHOLE roster on each team instead of just 4-7. Lastly, if you would, add playoffs then a championship. Thank you!
Great. But needs MFI controller support
Would be 5 stars if I could use a controller to play the game for iPad. Covering up gameplay with my fingers and hands is not idea. Would be great to see this on Apple TV or at least allow controllers (like Steel Nimbus) as an option for gameplay.
Other than that this game is virtually flawless. Great nostalgia from my SNES with far superior graphics, great commentary, and tremendous dunks. Boomshakalaka!
