Bulls vs Blazers is een ware voltreffer. Realistische aktie en een veelvoud aan mogelijkheden gecombineerd met gedetailleerde graphics. Nadeel is wel dat als je verdedigt, het spel heel onoverzichtelijk wordt.
All in all, just like the two games that came before it, Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs laid the groundwork for EA's NBA Live franchise, and for a number of other basketball titles to follow as well. BvB is a worthwhile (and generally pretty cheap, even complete with case and instruction manual) pick up for your Genesis collection if you desire some vintage basketball action that delivers the goods. If you want the whole regular season & playoffs with all the teams involved though, you'll want to look elsewhere, but still, you could do a lot worse in terms of Genesis hoops than Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs.
All Game Guide
Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs when first released was one of the best basketball titles on the Mega Drive. Despite not bringing much new to the table, it was still the best the system had to offer. A few months later NBA Jam changed this, but Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs will still go down as one of the better basketball releases in 1993.

Und wieder haben sich die Programmierer an einer Basketballsimulation versucht. Erstaunlicherweise ist es den Jungs und Mädels diesmal sogar gelungen, eine passabel spielbare Version auf die Reihe zu kriegen. Die Animationen sind detailgenau, die Geräuschkulisse ist inklusive Turnschuhgequietsche gelungen und das ewige Problem Wie-steuere-ich-ein-gesamtes-Basketballteam-mit-nur-einem-Joystick ist gut gelöst. Wäre jetzt noch der Spielfluß dementsprechend, könnte Bulls vs. Lakers sicher die erste hitsternverdächtige Simulation für Turnschuhwerbespots sein. So hat sich das Game aber selber durch den extrem zappeligen Spielfluß ausgebremst. Die Optionen lassen dagegen keine Wünsche offen. Als Extras gibt es realitätsbezogene Statistiken für Spieler und Mannschaften sowie Paßwortabfrage, Replay und eine einstellbare Spielzeit. Kurzum: Eine durchaus lohnenswerte Anschaffung für alle Sportfans.
The Video Game Critic
At its core, Bulls Vs. Blazers uses the same lethargic engine as its predecessors, and the best players are unstoppable once they find their "spot" on the floor. Charles Barkley's signature slam is performed at the foul line with no running start, and it's not unusual for him to pass through several defenders on the way up. EA was clearly content to pump out rehashes in the early 90's (imagine that). I eventually sold Bulls vs. Blazers to my friend Tuan for $17 (after getting NBA Jam), and I still remember him calling me up and complaining about how incredibly slow it was.
