This game is really targeted for the pre-10 age group. I think the slow gameplay will keep anyone older than 10 unsatisfied. If I were scoring this game from an 8-year-old's eyes, it would get about an 84, but since this is such a small percentage of the gaming population, I have to score it from my point of view. If you have young ones, this should keep them entertained. If not, stick with NBA Jam.

Younger gamers will enjoy this game and that rates highly with me, as lately most games have been geared only towards teens. Don't waste your time if Looney Tunes aren't your fancy.

Graphically the game is not exactly sterling, with its low res graphics and barely enough frames of animation to convey actual movement. The sound is decent, though commentary is much lamer than you’d think a Looney Tunes game would warrant. Overall, there’s an appeal here based strictly on the characters you can play, but it’s pretty minor considering the throw rug treatment such an otherwise great concept was given.

Space Jam ist wirklich nur ein Fall für die allerjüngsten PC-Benutzer, alle anderen sollten auf dieses Bunny-Osterei im Basketballkorb lieber verzichten.
Once you’ve digested the fact that each Loony Toon character has a ‘crazy’ finishing dunk and the sub-games are only there to pad-out what is blatantly a rushed product, there’s little else to hold your attention. When you consider the totally awesome Total NBA’97 reviewed only last month, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that unless you’re a masochist, you’ll stay well away from this utter dross. Fortunately, that’s all folks...
At best, the graphics in Space Jam look 16-bit. No 3-D polygonal characters or texture mapping here. The only redeeming aspect of the game is playing basketball with the Warner Bros. cartoon characters. As a plus, they're well-drawn and have some nice detail. Other than that, Space Jam is a basic 2-D, side-to-side basketball game. This is unfortunate, because plenty of Looney Tunes fans would have supported a graphically hep game.
Acclaim seems to want to live and die by the three, but they're losing their range. The NBA Jam engine, once a surefire hit, has now deteriorated to the point where it needs to be taken out to the backyard and put out of its misery - quickly, painlessly, and with dignity. So that no more heart-piercing, neck-wrenching articles like this have to be written. It's like catching a disease in the early stages, so it won't come back later to plague the earth! But past the corny metaphors, this is bad game, and hopefully the wake-up call Acclaim needed to get its act together, but (sigh) we'll see. Just as long as they don't produce a sequel...
