Playing with a fat-headed Michael Jordan sounds cool, and to do so you only have to download NBA JAM, the Windows version of the popular basketball game

9/10 (3 Votes)

Everything retro has come back into fashion. As of lately, anything the awakens our nostalgia soon becomes mainstream and ends up making a tiny fortune. Just ask Nintendo about their re-edition of classic video consoles, the proliferation of pixellated games or Netflix with their hit, Stranger Things. Therefore, nobody wants to miss out on the chance of playing a classic arcade from the times of the NES. If you're into basketball, NBA JAM is back in PC format to get you hooked onto the best basketball league in the world once again.

Play a match with your favorite players from the 30 NBA franchises in 2 vs 2 duels.

What does this basketball game offer me that others can't?

To start off, it's a true classic. You'll be able to play a few matches with your favorite friends in two versus two duels. However, this time around it comes along with improved graphics, much more cleaner than before, and with fat-headed players so you can see them better.

Unlock all the achievements of XBOX LIVE and get hold of the best cheats and legendary NBA players!

The commentary is directed by Tim Kitzrow, the original NBA JAM commentator. So, if you played back in the 90s' you'll probably recall some of his most famous expressions. There are three game modes to make sure the fun never ends:

  • Quick match: choose a player and start playing. That's it.
  • Classic campaign: this is the typical championship mode in which you'll have to be the best to be able to win and unlock legends, hidden players and all the tricks used by the most experienced users.
  • Local multiplayer: play in a 2 vs 2 mode against a friend using a WiFi network.

How to download the game? Very easy, from the official Microsoft store. However, it's not free of charge so don't get too excited.

Requirements and additional information:
  • Minimum operating system requirements: Windows 8.
