Good game missing some extra characters

The game itself is great. It has plenty of unlockables it just feels like there should be some more characters. THE REASON THIS DOESNT HAVE TEAMS LIKE BEASTIE BOYS AND STUFF IS THAT THIS IS NOT THE ON FIRE EDITION. That version has all the extra teams but is largely the same game. A few other things like jam store arent here either. But you cant get the on fire edition on mac so this is what you get. The only problem I have are the characters missing and the ratings of many old players. As far as missing players- guys like Jordan, Chamberlain, etc.- there could be more for sure. And as far as the ratings, some of them are outrageous. when legends like shaq, david robinson, magic, and bird are all arguably worse than players like gasol, bosh, and a rondo, you know something is wrong. But still the gameplay is great and I reccomend getting it.


I downloaded NBA Jam from the App store to run on my MacBook Pro 2.33 GHz 4GB RAM and all I get is a black screen. It plays the music, and that's it. It doesn't go beyond that. Can anyone tell me what the problem is? When I go to EA Sports website, I can't log into my Origin account, and can't get any help there either!! Any ideas????? The iPhone version is Hot!! I was pumped thinking I would be playing it on the Mac, but not so! I'm sending shouts out to the powers that be that made this game a reality, and made it available for sale in the App Store, that would be appealing for a Mac user to purchase such said item…….only for it not to work. what's that about??
