License cult 90s, it goes without saying that the return of NBA Jam gave rise among (young) old players we are, a certain impatience. So this remake Wii goes back there to sensations experienced when we were still playing in their pajamas, snot-nosed? He recalled to Trazom when he could by the sweat of his brow, get a decoder to follow the exploits of the champions of the NBA’s big TV? Blast from the past on approach …
What made the charm of NBA Jam at the time 16 bit is clearly the dose of insanity and had been stated proudly WTF this pure arcade game compared to other basketball titles. Jump six feet high, which ignite baskets, running triple axel to go dunk, that’s what looked like the game in action in NBA Jam . Do not worry, the gameplay of the remake has not changed one iota in any case, in what is transcribed on the screen, because handle (or rather Nunchuck / Wiimote in hand) is another story.
16 years after Shaq Fu: The nunchuck is needed
Indeed, if one would have thought that this new NBA Jam would be played with the Wiimote held in the
manner of a NES pad, it is not. Feel free to use the classic white knob on the Wii if you want, but basic, it will move with the nunchuck stick, sprint with Z and the other hand, press the A button the Wiimote for pass and mimic the motion of throwing a ball (as in Wii Sports Resort and more “nag”) for your dunks and shots to your basket, two and three points. It is immediately to the gameplay and everything works perfectly during the 2 vs 2 opponents finest heads in the NBA.
Noah, Parker and Co.:large heads
Bias by EA to make a little more crazy this remake over the original was to scan faces of NBA stars, to make 2D textures (giving effect to the Mortal Kombat if you prefer) . Thus you will recognize the ease with Allen, Parker, James, Bryant and Gasol, especially if you like to play with the way Big Heads. If this effect is very good and funny, it must be said, technically the game is a little to pick: no way 16 / 9, poor graphics … Fortunately, the animation is quite decent. But unlike some aesthetes 1080p lying to the editorial, ‘I do not care! If everything is a little bad taste either the general atmosphere, the public digitized to hard, the anims bullshit mascots (and players in 3 phases and a half but it’s always wanted), the colorful land fluorescent color, it must be said, the dose of fun is also in all of these! It is the NBA Jam as a nanar: the sets are tiep, such as actors, the stunts are totally improbable and that’s why it’s so fun!
He’s on fire!
The title is all the more fun it offers moult game modes Campaign If this instruction, you just play games against teams in your conference, the Fashion Remix invites you to turn the 2 vs. 2 where you can pick up bonuses to be (much) faster, more precise or powerful. A kind of Mario Kart applied to basketball. Because the strength of NBA Jam , as the race karts family Mario is his festive side, funny and eminently multiplayer. Up to four players can compete in two against two in games classic or “remix” of course, but also in the Smash mode for example, where you have to dunk ever shattered the plexiglass of the opponent!
Some modes of game play with a different camera perspective, the basket while being in the bottom of
the screen. This is the case in the Domination mode, where you have to score from a defined area, your points are multiplied so that it will not be “stolen” by the winning shot of a competitor from the same place. These additions and much more, gives NBA Jam Wii, the status of a game that will obviously the joy of the evening with friends. In addition to basketball fans, know that your good solo performances in the games against the boss, you will unlock NBA legends such as Julius Erving, Karl Malone or Larry Bird.
NBA Jam for Wii is a remake that was expected. If it is not amazing technically, it has the same spirit as its predecessor on 16-bit consoles. Fun, funny, featuring various challenges, this title stands out as a new benchmark for your evenings with friends. The single player is not left out but obviously this game resumed basketball fantasy adage: the more the merrier, the merrier! If you ever have the opportunity, I advise you also to play with Traz, the effect of the egg as being crazy when tenfold … A magic bullet against the gloom.
