The smooth controls mean you'll quickly learn and enjoy. While the signature moves aren't as spectacular as those in NBA Jam, they're almost as fun and easy to execute. Barkley's abrasive personality turns a lot of people off; his game though, will turn a lot of people on slammin' street hoops.
Game Players
An aggressive NBA Jam lookalike that's unfortunately shackled by poor control and choppy graphics. Horrible artificial intelligence and the lack of a shot clock make this a bench-warmer.
Total! (Germany)
Der dreiste NBA-Jam-Clone ähnelt dem Original aus der Spielhalle zwar vom Gameplay und Spielaufbau sehr, ist grafisch wie auch spielerisch aber um Klassen schlechter, Von den mäßigen Animationen der insgesamt 16 Basketballer (bis auf Barkley allesamt Phantasiemannen), dem schlechten Sound und den kaum vorhandenen Soundeffekten einmal abgesehen, befinden sich auch noch Bugs — oder, falls beabsichtigt, große Lächerlichkeiten — im Programm.
Was Accolade hier abgeliefert hat ist mehr als nur ein grobes Foulspiel an allen SNES-Besitzern. Mittlerweile mag es angesichts solcher Perlen nicht mehr verwundern, daß dieses in den 80ern einst angesehenes Softwarehaus mittlerweile seine Pforten schließen musste. Für Barkley: Shut up and Jam! solltet ihr jedenfalls keinen Cent hinblättern!
