The graphics are absolutely awesome, players get tired in this game and show it with hands on knees and heavy breathing. You get the option to replace players at halftime, which is a great feature.
There's also a tournament feature where you can pick a team from today and play teams from the past. It starts in the 1950s in black and white and you go through the years up to the present day. It's an absolutely amazing feature, the black and white game play and commentary that sounds like it's from the 50s is very cool.
The only drawback I've found to the game is the AI seems to get an advantage to catch up if you get ahead of it too far in the game. I've picked the Lakers which is the best team in the game and not been able to blow out a mediocre rated team such as the Jazz.
It's just as fun as the original with a lot of extras. You can play the regular NBA Jam game as well as a Legendary Tournament, which you can play with players from the 70's to the present. You can make your own team and even make your own player. You can unlock courts that you can play on, and other extras.
The only thing is that the opponents are not as easy to beat as the original, no biggie, it's just as fun or even better.
If you buy this game you will totally be happy with your purchase.
Other great aspects:
You can unlock super teams including monsters, machines aliens, presidents, world leaders, etc. The tournament mode is also stellar. It is pretty much the same as the original version, but for whatever reason it is more fun. You can also unlock more cheats, more arenas, and more other stuff I can't remember.
My only problem is that you can only create one guy. You should be able to make more, so that you can have the greatest team ever, even more than the 2001 Washington Wizards.
So if you like the original, pick this one up too, chances are you'll like it.
I love the amount of unlockable teams & players on the game. You can instantly access all of them by entering -LPP- as your profile. Then you can also create 4 teams of 4 using these players. You can also add 1 create player per profile that can play on any team. Sadly there's no Jordan, Hakeem, Stockton, etc. but teams I could build included:
Lakers - Magic, Worthy, & Jabbar
Celtics - Ainge, Bird, McKale, & Parish
Sonics - Payton, Schrempf, & Kemp (guest starring Chambers)
Magic - A. Hardaway, H. Grant (in Bulls attire), Shaq - added Pippen & created Jordan for split Bulls team.
Blazers - Drexler, Ainge (in Celtics attire), B. Williams, C. Robinson (from Pistons) is also pos.
I mostly watched basketball during the 90's so those were some of my favorites to put together.
There are also some wild, fun teams like Aliens, Fright (Vampire. Wolfman, & Invisible Man), Pirates, USA Legends (Washington, Lincoln, & Franklin), Clowns, World Conquerors (Kahn, Caesar, & Napoleon), & Robots.
