Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Digital pictures specializes in full-motion video and has created a game starring Scottie Pippen himself. At first, the control lags as you must time your movements against your opponent, but eventually you get the hang of things. Clear video that matches the great sounds from the back bring you right into the action. Cool cinemas!
GamePro (US)
First-person video similar to that in Prize Fighter is the main attraction, but poor controls are a real distraction in this disappointing hoops game.
Game Players
While the game's movie-like design and intriguing courtside characters make it entertaining to watch, Slam City doesn't effectively sell the feeling of interactivity between you and your video opponent. Demanding control requires button pushes within a precise window and detecting those openings on video is ofter quite difficult. This reduces the game from a fluid blacktop hoop sim to a rigid reflex test that's more fun to watch than it is to play.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
Despite it's interesting subject, Slam City is still just another failed attempt at true full-motion video interactivity. Scottie deserves better - and come to think of it, so do I. An FMV football game, on the other hand...now there's an idea...
Mega Fun
Ich kann mir jedenfalls nicht vorstellen, inwiefern die durchaus recht hohen Entwicklungskosten in irgendeiner Art und Weise wieder reingeholt werden. Basketballfans mag das Spiel anfangs vielleicht noch halbwegs ansprechen, aber auf Dauer wird das Ganze doch ziemlich öde, da Eure Möglichkeiten im eigentlichen Spiel ziemlich begrenzt sind (vornehm ausgedrückt). Immerhin hat Slam City noch mehr zu bieten als das unwürdige Kids On Site, was aber auch keine Kunst ist. Sportspielfreaks halten sich lieber an NBA Live 95 oder NBA Jam Tournament Edition, Slam City hat mit „richtigem“ Basketball jedenfalls herzlich wenig zu tun.
Gamers (Germany)
In ruckelnder nicht-hochauflösender Video-Grafik präsentiert sich "Slam City with Scottie Pippen", das insgesamt so mitreißend ist wie Staubsaugen. Englische Sprachsamples und dumpfe Rap-Mucke untermalen den Spielspaß, der leider nicht mit der Masse an CDs mithalten kann ... um es nett zu sagen.
