  • EA Did it again.

    By BadDomino5
    I used to play the original NBA Jam back in the day. I was hoping to enjoy it again a little bit but the controls are just too weird. Playing a game with a D pad on a screen is never as good as it is with a controller. That’s why I bought the Nimbus bluetooth controller that is MADE FOR IPAD but once again EA and/or Apple have dropped the ball (in a basketball game!) on allowing MFI controller support. Ridiculous and not fun. I spent $5 for fun and didn’t have fun.
  • Where is it?

    By PreviousBBUser
    5 stars because this is a awesome port of a classic game from super nes days. Minus 3 stars because I purchased big man package on iPhone yet it doesn’t show on my iPad Pro....NOT HAPPY!!! Update: Minus another star until I receive my big man package that I purchased on iPhone. I’m not paying again!!!!

  • They need to fix on fire.

    Back on the original when you were on fire you were almost unstoppable. This on fire mode isn’t anything close to it.

    I love NBA Jam. It’s one of the most famous arcade games of all-time. However, I originally bought the game on my iPhone for $4.99, but when I tried to download it to my iPad Pro (with the same Apple account), it made me pay again. I should have been able to just hit the downward-pointing arrow to re-download it to my iPad Pro, but I went ahead and paid again thinking Apple would realize I had already paid and correct the mistake. SO PLEASE REFUND MY EXTRA $4.99!! I also bought the Privileges Pack on my iPhone for $1.99, so I should get that also on my iPad Pro.

    Wow, these rosters look like they are from the 2014-2015 season... UPDATE THE ROSTERS! There are at least two players on every single team that no longer play on that team. Pretty ridiculous...
  • Great game

    By Ry3423
    I think it would be awesome if you updated the rosters for 2018-2019. Other then that I love the game
  • New Rosters

    By Almur jr
    Please just update the rosters along with updated player stats. I want to see the new lakers and warriors in this game. It would make more people want to download the game. Please please please I have this game down loaded and I want to play it but Kyrie is still on the Cavs😭
  • OLD but FUN

    By EA reporter
    Old teams old logos players on rong teams and bad achrubutes
  • Controls are really buggy

    By Bryan Henderson
    Try and dunk, he passes. Try and pass and he throws a half court shot, try and block and he tries to steal. Try and steal and you get dunked on. Seriously, the controls are all over the place.
