Long before the NBA Street games (or the EA Sports BIG label, for that matter) were even conceived, there was only one name that mattered in console basketball gaming: NBA Jam. Rebuilt from scratch for PlayStation 2, NBA Jam brings Acclaim's classic 3-on-3 arcade 'baller bang up to date while retaining the frantic gameplay and over-the-top moves for which the series is so well loved.
As you'd expect, all 29 current NBA teams, players and arenas are present and correct, but they're supplemented by a number of outdoor courts and classic arenas of yesteryear. Additionally, the NBA Legends Tournament mode lets you put some of the greatest players of the last 50 years through their enormous strides, including Magic Johnson, Julius Irving, Larry Bird and more. There's even era-specific music, uniforms, hairstyles, commentary and moves included for maximum nostalgic effect.
The finely tuned, fast and furious NBA Jam gameplay includes many of the series' trademark features, including "On fire" (for when your players are 'in the zone') and the eternally entertaining "Big Head" mode.
