NBA Jam, the 1993 classic that popularized sayings like “He’s heating up!,” “He’s on fire!,” and my favorite “Boomshakalaka!” has been revamped and released by EA games.  Taking off where the old one left off the game has only been made better through technological advances, mainly the graphics.

                Game play remains for the most part exactly the same as I remember.  The teams have been updated with their respective greats.  In the case of my hometown heroes, the Golden State Warriors, the team is lead by Monta Ellis, David Lee, Andris Biedrins, and the man whose three-pointers are unstoppable: Stephen Curry.

                Defying the laws of gravity the backboard breaking, earth shaking, incredible dunks have only been made better.  Complete with the flashing lights of the fans taking pictures. Offensive spin moves and crossovers make guarding a bit more difficult them the game of old.  While on defense and the pick just isn’t an option there is always the old standby shove, fortunately free-throws not included.

                Some of the classic codes of the original are still available.  Use these to mix things up a bit:
