Other nice touches include offensive/defensive fouls that when called make sense, nice slam dunk attempt cutscenes, and the option to shoot for possession or play “Around the World” at the start of a match. It’s not weighed down with options, but what options do exist, combined with the core gameplay, make this a nice b-ball diversion.
Hoops just doesn't have enough variety. You play 30 games of basketball and each one is about as difficult as the next. The graphics are more cartoony and the dunk sequences was done better in Double Dribble - a game that was out two years ago!

Hoops is pretty weak. You can only play either 1 on 1 or 2 on 2 with fake players. It is far from the worst basketball game on the NES but I would never recommend this game.

Obviously, if you’re interested in wringing any fun out of Hoops, you’ll need to get yourself a second player. At least then you can laugh at the other player as they attempt – and fail – to make three-point shots, or, well, any shot. But if you’re alone, like me, sucking down a dry martini while crying clown tears, it’s best to leave Hoops on the sidelines. No point in becoming more depressed.
