Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball Reviews (SNES)

Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball SNES Before Dennis Rodman, the bad boy of the NBA was this fellow. How bad was he? Bad enough to earn him a starring role in a game called "combat basketball"...

GamePro (US) (Nov, 1991)
During the game all the players look alike, and they play alike, too. The transparent overhead view on the side of the screen is a good idea, but the tiny dots representing the players make it nearly impossible to use. Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball needs to call a time out. But please don't tell Mr. Laimbeer who wrote that.
The first hoops title on Super NES stars the infamous bad boy from the down-and-dirty Detroit Pistons of 1989 and 1990 NBA championship fame. Sporting an overhead viewpoint and some of the ugliest graphics produced for the system, this futuristic, no-rules contest encourages armored combatants to tackle opponents while trying to score baskets. Ill-conceived controls, annoying sounds, and a number of other faults mar what could have been a guilty pleasure.
