Fun, but not a real basketball simulation...
The game is fun, and it features some smooth graphics and gameplay. Also, you could play as Michael Jordan (something rare in basketball games at the time).
It seems they spent all their money licensing Jordan, and left you with some college rookies to play with. It was only half-court, and you didn't have full five-player teams. The game only runs that smooth because the court has relatively no detail (no crowds, no textures).
The Bottom Line
Good for arcade players and those who must have Jordan titles. Players looking for real basketball action should look for the EA's NBA Live series.
