    NBA Jam Tournament Edition comes from a very distinguished line, and the PlayStation version is by far the best.

    All the official NBA teams are featured, and every player has 8 skill attributes corresponding to real-life. Substitutions are possible - just as well, because so are injuries!

    Options include Hot Spots, from which 5-pointers can be scored, and power ups like extra strength, speed or even a bomb, which knocks the opposition to the ground. Put 3 through the opponent's hoop without reply, and it's a case of 'He's on fire!', giving an upsurge in form and making 3-pointers a touch easier from downtown.

    This is a real gamesplayer's game, and a must for arcade and basketball fans alike.
