If it weren't for its abhorrent background music, tinny sound effects, and lack of a two-player feature, NBA Hoopz would be a glowing addition to the Game Boy Color's library. The game definitely has that faithful NBA Jam feel, but when you get down to it, most game players won't be able to stomach its repetitious and simplistic CPU opponents forever. Human competition and custom teams tend to save standard sports games in this respect. NBA Hoopz lives and dies on gameplay alone and, as such, has a limited life span.

NBA Hoopz could have been Midway's basketball redemption on the Game Boy Color, but the lack of options means it's just another average sports game. Unless you were a big fan of NBA Jam on the handheld, there's not much here to justify a purchase.
