NBA Jam’s biggest flaw is its price point, even if some people were willing to buy the $60 NBA Elite solely to have Jam. Fans of the original will love this remake, as everything is just as great as the original, if not better. The new modes, while fun enough to play, don’t outshine the classic campaign and local 2v2 games, and thus don’t play as big a role as they should have. The online multiplayer is disappointing to say the least, though sometimes you can find a good game with fair players and it’s quite fun. But, again, this is NBA Jam and you know if you like it or not – now you just have to decide if you want to buy it or not.

Overall, this new version of NBA Jam would have been better served as a downloadable on Xbox Live Arcade or PlayStation Network. You get the feeling EA tacked on the extra modes to try and justify the price tag for a disc-based game. If you can find it at a discounted price, it’s worth a look, but otherwise, leave this reboot on the bench.
