EA kondigt NBA Jam: On Fire Edition aan

Uitgever Electronic Arts maakte dinsdag bekend dat het werkt aan de game NBA Jam: On Fire Edition. Het wordt een Xbox Live Arcade- en PlayStation Network-titel, die naar verwachting in oktober te downloaden zal zijn.

De uitgever belooft onder andere dat tegenstanders een betere ai krijgen, zodat NBA Jam-spelers zich constant moeten aanpassen. De ai zal namelijk rekening houden met de tactieken van spelers en zijn gedrag hierop aanpassen. Electronic Arts gebruikt hiervoor technieken uit zijn Fight Night-franchise.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition biedt daarnaast de Jam Arena, waarin spelers alleen of met anderen aan een onlinecompetitie kunnen deelnemen. De Road Trip-modus is een coöperatieve online-campaign; spelers doorlopen hierin verschillende uitdagingen tegen de huidige supersterren van de NBA.

"We hebben simpelweg naar onze fans geluisterd en met deze feedback willen we de beste NBA Jam-ervaring tot nu toe leveren", meldt NBA Jam-producer Trey Smith in het persbericht. Wanneer NBA Jam: On Fire Edition exact verschijnt en wat de titel gaat kosten, is nog niet bekendgemaakt.

Closing Comments

That this is the definitive version of NBA Jam is undeniable: it plays better, looks better and lasts better than any of the previous games in the series' history. The fact that it's a mere $14.99 USD only makes it an even more irresistible proposition – you couldn't get more bang for your bucks outside of a halftime fireworks show in Milwaukee. Just how On Fire is it? To return to the analogy that opened this review: this Jam is so hot that if you were to spread it on bread it would turn it into toast. Buy it.


8.0
Presentation
Streamlined menus make it easy to dip in and out of multiplayer matches, the Jam Store and more.

8.5
Graphics
Fluid animations plus neat graphical effects that really pop - right down to the flaming footprints you leave behind when you're on fire.

8.5
Sound
A whole bunch of hilarious new lines for the commentator and a far more varied list of Jam Trax than in last year's game.

9.0
Gameplay
Same-screen four-player gaming doesn't get much better than this, plus there's plenty to do if you're playing solo.

9.0
Lasting Appeal
Near limitless replayability with friends, but even on your own there's a healthy number of challenges to complete.

OVERALL
Amazing

"The NBA Jam game that fans have been asking for has finally arrived."

The Good

- Open-ended Road Trip mode lets you play against teams in any order
- Improved and enjoyable competitive and co-operative Online
- Lots of varied ways to unlock additional content
- Tag Mode gives you more control
- Razzle-dazzles add another layer to the on-court madness

The Bad
- Overly reliant on alley-oops
- Some cheap AI situations

NBA Jam isn't without some faults. Even with a significantly better single-player portion, there are still times when the computer gets lucky far too often or your teammate's AI isn't up to par. As you progress through Road Trip, silver, gold, and even the additional content afterward is downright challenging and frustrating. It's aggravating when the AI can sink baskets with players who shouldn't be capable of certain kinds of shots.

Additional animations and even deeper commentary by legendary NBA Jam announcer Tim Kitzrow are included and add to an overall great package. Those who felt burnt by last year's game can think of NBA Jam: On Fire Edition as EA's way of apologizing for it. For everyone else, this is a fun and frantic arcade game that delivers hours of enjoyment.

  • Damn soms heb ik het gevoel dat ik ook wel eens onder die steen vandaan mag komen, wist niet dat het een arcade game was.
