NBA JAM is a legendary franchise that continues to be a perennial favorite among gamers of all ages, selling over 6 million copies since 1993.
NBA JAM 2004 is not a "true" basketball simulator by any means, but rather an entertaining caricature of the parts that make it fun - it's arcade basketball, big, bright and showy.
Of course, NBA JAM 2004 contains all of the classic elements that you'd expect of an NBA Jam title: 3-on-3 gameplay, "On Fire" and "Big Head" modes, and the gameplay is punctuated by dramatic dunks and over-the-top action.

 SportPlanet - A Member of The GameSpy Network
Released in 1993, NBA Jam was an immediate hit with gamers, and ultimately made more than $1 billion (yes, that is a B) for Midway.
NBA Jam was designed as a 2-on-2, side-scrolling full-court basketball game, and the action was viewed on the typical, standard arcade monitor.
As NBA Jam was rather expensive to play (2 quarters per game quarter, or $2 to play an entire game), this added a huge amount of replayability to the game.

 NBA Jam Review for Xbox - Gaming Age
The silly 2 on 2 of NBA Jam was addictive, fun eye candy with rewarding dunks and the perfect amount of cartoon violence.

 PS2 Game Reviews: NBA Jam
NBA Jam 2004 is a rebirth of sorts, and while it doesn’t do a whole lot new with the tried and true formula of dunks, dunks, and more dunks, it’s a solid, albeit shallow game.
The Jam Tourney has you taking a team up against each of the real NBA franchises from worst to first, while the Legends Tournament has you taking on old-school players from all eras.
NBA Jam 2004 shows that the series does still have some life left in it, but major refinements need to be made to keep it going.

 NBA Jam Review
As you may already know, NBA Jam is a rather shallow game, but I enjoyed it a bit more than I thought I would.
I almost think that NBA Jam is a game made for people who want to play a basketball game, but find most basketball games too complicated (does such an audience exist?).
The problem with NBA Jam, and thus is the main reason I don't play sports games too often, is that there just isn't a whole lot of depth to it.

 NBA Jam Xbox game review from allXbox.com
NBA Jam's return to the scene after an absence - which, all things considered, was fairly short, but long enough for EA Sports BIG to hatch their own arcade-style franchise in NBA Street - isn't quite one of those tales.
Part of this is due to Jam's Hotspot mechanics - as you score Jam Points by pulling off 'regular', yet stylish offensive and defensive moves, you can gain the ability to trigger a Hotspot: move to an area on the court and push the appropriate button to activate it.
I've done a lot of comparisons between NBA Jam and NBA Street, and while that might not be entirely 'fair', in a certain sense, I still feel Jam should be ranked not only against the overall lineup of the consoles it appears on, but a similiar and slightly superior game in the same genre.

 G4 - Feature - 'NBA Jam' (Xbox) Review
As a wise man once said, "It's deja vu all over again." Such is the case with "NBA Jam," which is a return to fast and frenetic action without any rules to slow things down.
"NBA Jam" is first and foremost a game of showmanship, and there are no strategies, injuries, or penalties to distract players from the action.
The jam tournament is the same "beat all 29 NBA teams" found in all "NBA Jam" games.

 NBA Jam Review - FUTURE GAMEZ
“Welcome to NBA Jam!” With these words, many people got their first experience of multiplayer brilliance back in the early nineties, be it in the arcades, or on the Super Nintendo or Megadrive.
NBA Jam was a fun stab at NBA basketball, dishing out foul-free 3-on-3 arcade-style gameplay, which was easy to pick up and too addictive to put down.
NBA Jam is an improvement to the NBA Jam games of late, but that still doesn’t make it a worthy game.

 NBA Jam
Players choose an NBA team, each with two or three superstar players (or at least their digitized faces), and play a side-scrolling basketball game, split into four quarters (each new 3:00 quarter is a buy-in).
NBA Jam was the first licensed sports coin-op video game ever.
Since the name "NBA Jam" is owned and controlled by the NBA, Acclaim later aquired the license and made a 3D coin-op version, NBA Jam Extreme, which was not successful.

The first NBA Jam game for the Nintendo 64 may not remind you of the old NBA Jam at all.
In fact, NBA Jam 99 from Acclaim is a five-on five basketball simulation game, not the two-on-two arcade game we've come to associate with the Jam series.
While NBA Jam 99 will feature the now-obligatory 29 NBA teams and floors, developer Iguana West (the Utah branch of Austin, Texas-based Iguana) hopes to bring new life to the action by using Acclaim's Hi-Rez, 3-D polygonal sports engine.

 NBA Jam 2004 Review (Xbox) at Next Level Gaming!   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Modeled after an older and less popular game called Arch Rivals, NBA Jam featured 2 on 2 hoops with real digitized basketball players who sometimes ran around the court "on fire", rim-rattling supersized dunks, and a one-man commentating booth who would coin a phrase that is still used by video gamers everywhere today.
And making his grand return to the courts of NBA Jam is the boom-shaka-laka himself; the original, the one who started commentating, Tim Kitzrow.
Remember, NBA Jam is all about the rules; and the fact that there are none.

 NBA Jam - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Of course, seeing NBA superstars of the era, like John Starks, Patrick Ewing, Scott Skiles, Karl Malone, Shawn Kemp, Chris Webber, Calbert Cheaney, Scottie Pippen, Harold Miner, Shawn Bradley, Reggie Miller, Detlef Schrempf, Charles Barkley, and Hakeem Olajuwon, flying through the air with the greatest of ease brought just as many fans back.
Early versions of the sequel, NBA Jam Tournament Edition, even allowed players to put in codes that allowed people to play as characters from Mortal Kombat, but the NBA, uneasy over the controversies surrounding Mortal Kombat's levels of violence, forced Midway to remove these characters in later updates.
However, by the time NBA Maximum Hangtime (a further update) was released, Midway began to lose steam with the game, and the game was considered to be a commercial disappointment.

 NBA Jam - SNES
The game also let you put in a name and birthdate to unlock secret characters like the developers, (in the SNES version they had Bill and Hillary Clinton, as well as DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince.) and that was a pretty fun little gimmick.
If you were the career player type, you could put in your own name and birthdate and NBA Jam would keep track of your user stats.
Using mo-capped basketball players playing on 8-foot rims, the spectacular dunks were the real highlight of NBA Jam.

Some have the NBA Jam logo printed on them along with Pass/Shoot/Turbo over the buttons and red or blue in the circle at the foul lines, while some are just a plain court with white lines.
NBA Jam Tournament Edition may have shipped in some of these cabinets as well, but a seperate dedicated cabinet also existed for the upgrade.
Originally, the NBA was not keen on the idea, as they did not want the wholesome NBA logo to be seen in "seedy" coin-op locations like bars or strip joints.

NBA Jam also features a mode called "Jam store." In this mode, you can unlock a huge number of different items using points you earn playing the game.
The bulk of NBA Jam's commentary is provided by Tim Kitzrow, the commentator of the original NBA Jam.
As a stand-alone game, NBA Jam is definitely fun to play, but it lacks the gameplay depth of pretty much every other major basketball title on the market, arcade or otherwise.

 Review: NBA Jam for PS2 on Gamepro.com.
NBA Jam is a fast-paced game of basketball that works for all audiences: It?s a one-button, newbie-worthy procedure to throw up an impressive-looking alley-oop, but experienced players with good timing can dish off multiple ?oops, totally flattening the defense.
When you?re playing the NBA legends, you?ll view the action through a nostalgic filter?the fl-and-white presentation of the 1950s and 1960s is worth a rental alone.
NBA Jam features created players and teams as well as tons of unlockable goodies, like old-school announcers, chain-link nets, and extra courts (including the classic Boston and Chicago arenas).
