  • Decent Game

    By joe mama's hugh janis
  • Controller Support!

    By fuzzygreenballs
    Needs support for Bluetooth controller on iOS 13! On-screen controls are not ideal/optimal at all.
  • Crashes on iPad Pro

    By Rezalder
    Can’t even get into a game before it crashes anymore.
  • Controller?!

    By Tomeeeeeeeeeeee
    I would give 5 stars if I could use a Bluetooth controller . Not sure how hard it is to make this possible but shouldn’t be too much to ask
  • 🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨🚨

  • Multiplayer Mode

    By Fredrigo52
    I just want to say that the multiplayer mode is god awful in this game. If you want to play against a friend, good luck trying to make shots being the away team. If u are the host or the home team, then congratulations you have just won the game. Watch and see as you make 9 contested fade-away threes from half court as ur friend fails to make a layup. Seriously. My friend was the home team once and he made 10 threes with Westbrook. WESTBROOK!!!! All fade aways too. The multiplayer is so bad and laggy, that it’s just not worth having it as an option at all to play
  • 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!!!!
