This game was just terrible.
When the first NBA Jam came out, it was a masterpiece. When this game came out, it was a hot mess.
It tries to be just like Midway's NBA Hangtime and NBA Showtime, which received positive reviews. Obviously, that didn't work out for Acclaim with their production of this game. The loading time, choppy graphics, and animations were laughable. There's not many good things to be said here. No wonder Acclaim's take on the PS1 collection pack was poorly received.
