The Game is Ok, but it needs a Major Roster Update to be Current. Teams need to have Players who actually play for those teams, Not players form 10 years ago. Also Add New Players and New Stars to Teams. For Example why doesn't The Warriors Have KD, Green, and Thompson? Or why isn't James in Cleveland? Also why is it that at the end of quarters when the other team takes the last shoot, the following quarter they get to take out again? Please fix and Update the Rosters to Current Rosters & Add New Superstars. Full Review

Quite simply the greatest console gone smartphone game ever. However, that is too small a statement. It is perhaps the greatest or top 10 smartphone game ever... That are pure action. The graphics, the sounds, and the flawless gameplay. I've been playing this since my Apple iPhone 3g and it still is the best. Adding...people are stupid. Yes I would like to see roster updates, but this game is 5 years old or so. Plus this is not a controller, there it's no physical d-pad. The virtual d-pad is the best you'll get. Sheesh. I think the game is a marvel for a smartphone game. Excellent job. I've bought it twice. Once for my iPhone, then again for my android that's how incredibly fun this game is. Full Review

Hey EA jordan is on the hall of fame now,you can use his name now,his name is now a official trademark of the nba meaning you can use his name and number on a game yes you still pay for using his name but its well deserved i think updating your roster would make more sales! Come on EA lets get jordan,and some of the other old school greats in here,its 2014 come on guys lets make it happen!!!! If i could i would! Full Review
JAMES THOMAS Published date: February 28, 2017
Going on three years and I love it. Three different providers and it is still fun to play. Can't put it down. Thanks for the update too...still waiting on the updates of names added to the commentating. Like "Kyrie Irving" and "Stephen Curry". And updated rosters too. Cause J.R. Smith is not with the New York Knicks anymore...going on two years now. Can someone from EA get these issues right and this would be the best mobile NBA game ever...don't get me wrong. I love it. Just do something about this issue. Full Review
Andy Hinz Published date: October 11, 2017
I enjoy playing this game. It brings me back to the 90's playing on the Sega Genesis. That being said the rosters also update just like the Sega Genesis. THEY DON'T! I would think there would be some sort of roster update every now and then but it doesn't appear it will happen. Also I just updated my phone to the S8+ and I'm unable to play. When Will I be able to play a game that I've paid for? Full Review

I like this game mucho. Hours of fun. Still getting use to the d-pad. My player seems to go way off the screen during dead balls or between shots. Probably doesn't help that I'm playing on a little screen on my phone. Also rebounding seems a little awkward. I don't seem to be able to move in mid air after I touch the green shoot/rebound icon. I feel I should be able to have more control during rebounding attempt. Maybe it just takes time to get use to the controls. Awesome game. "He's on fire!" Full Review

Not bad. Good ol classic. Update: Doesn't seem to work on Oreo 8.1 on a Google pixel XL. Crashes immediately after opening. I don't expect EA to update it based on their reputation. Was a great game on mobile but without updates it will soon die off. Full Review
Published date: December 7, 2017
Great game! I hate "gesture mode" there's GOT to be an easier way to juke/spin without having a headache in the end from shaking the phone so hard. Also I HATE Google+ and REFUSE to get an account, it's a shame that's the only way I can play randoms online. Fix it, not everything has to force us to use Google. Other than that this game is dope af! A- Full Review
Andres Barron Published date: March 23, 2017
It's good, but COME ON! UPDATED ROSTERS! We need the new rookies and stars of the game. We need the rosters and guys in the game like Jimmy Butler, Klay Thompson, and if not a way to customize rosters BY OURSELVES! Other than rosters and lack of new players/all stars it's great Full Review
Luke Koebler Published date: May 16, 2017
I just purchased this game because I am going on a long plane flight and will have nothing to do. When it finished installing I opened it up. I was not happy to see that I got an error message that said the game was not Authorized for use on My device please fix or I will get a refund. Full Review
John McCormick Published date: May 30, 2017
Love this game, but it will not even open on the Samsung Galaxy devices running Android 6.0 and higher. Haven't been able to open the app since upgrading to Android 6.0 back in 2016. The app still won't open with the newest version of Android 7.0 either. It just force closes immediately after opening the app. Full Review

I don't think you can punch in basketball can you? No that is what they do in this stupid game also they elbow.What type of basketball is this. Who made this game because It is stuiped because you can push,punch, throw elbows in basketball who came up with that rule stupidest game ever(no wonder this game is 4.3)this should not coast 4.99. Full Review
Barrett Brewington Published date: January 1, 2018
Good app overall. There are times when my players aren't called by correct name. I also cannot download and install on Galaxy Note 4 device but I have it on my Galaxy Tab 7.0. Sometimes the screen is too sensitive and it always seems to be a problem when I'm blowing the computer away. But problems notwithstanding I enjoy the app. Please release for Galaxy Note 4. I'd love to keep using the app I paid for. Also update for Bluetooth controller support. Full Review
Josh Purdy Published date: February 9, 2017
Great game, but I'm getting bored playing the same players. Also thanks for the update that no one knows what happened. All we know is it wasn't a roster update so I'm stuck playing with the same characters on the same outdated rosters. At least let us know what's in the update. Full Review
Nathanial Whiteside Published date: May 6, 2017
Horrible waste of five dollars, joystick gets stuck in one direction every game. Ruins the whole experience. Plus if you have a problem with the game you should be able to email the developer. But not here I tried multiple times to email them but it won't go through..... I wonder why?! Full Review
Zavier Brooks Published date: December 11, 2017
I want to preface my comments by saying that I have owned this game for at least 3 years. PLEASE UPDATE THE ROSTERS!!! This is one of the best games on any mobile device. Controls, gameplay, and graphics are great! But the Rosters though...... PLEASE UPDATE THE ROSTERS! Thank you kindly. Full Review
Andrew Newbold Published date: May 8, 2017
Ok I have loved this game since I was in college. That was Sega days. However this version had issues on my pixel with Android 7.1.1. It just crashes on load. Please fix it. I love it. I'll update my ratings when fixed. Thank you. 05/08/2017. Still not working on my pixel. It worked until Android 7 came out. Full Review
Jody Nichols Published date: April 21, 2017
I got the thing, after 3 weeks of deliberating buying it, and it is unplayable. Whenever my selected character has the ball, they just pivot randomly around the court. Please fix this soon. Full Review
Brett Marcum Published date: September 15, 2017
Just like old NBA JAMS! It does take a while to get used to the on-screen controls but they Ã re as well placed as they can be. I will never get sick of this game. Now I want to see if they have NFL Blitz! Lol Full Review
Brian Bartels Published date: March 14, 2017
Great game! Works well on my LG Tribute. Controls are tight, though occasionally i hit the pass button by accident when i try to press the shoot button. Overall, it feels like the good old NBA Jam that i know and love. Full Review
Bobby Lange Published date: August 1, 2017
The game controls are simplified and easy to pick up for mobile play. I gave the controls a 4/5 because the PS4 gamepad support isn't at all practical, but the touchscreen controls should work just fine. Roster is very outdated, but you'll still have fun. Great mobile game. Full Review
Wunsford Digglespit Published date: August 4, 2017
A pretty good game, actually. Addictive even. Pretty cool that I can play as Tim Duncan AND David Robinson, reliving past memories of watching my favorite basketball team. You did good, EA. You did good. #GoSpursGo Full Review
Kenyada Walker Published date: October 23, 2017
My only problem is the outdated rosters! But this is a major flaw to the game. Update the rosters and I will give it 5 stars across the board Full Review
Isaac Anderson Published date: October 28, 2017
My favorite app. The rosters need to be updated badly. How do you have rookie curry on here but love, kyrie, and Bron on the cavs, Rose is still with the Bulls. As soon as the rosters are updated this game will be perfect. Full Review
Adam Published date: November 20, 2017
How can you charge for 4.99 for an app that's outdated by over 2 years?? No Porzingis. No Greek Freak. Was still on Miami. Rondo still on Celtics. Full Review
ryan leddy Published date: March 25, 2017
The game has been worth the money as I have really enjoyed it so far. The one annoying thing is the announcer says the wrong names A LOT. Andrew Wiggins is always called Zack Randolph and it happens with opposing players as well. Other than that it has been a blast from my childhood! The really sucky thing is the rosters. No KAT on the Wolves is weak. So many players not even in the league anymore still in this game. Please update rosters Full Review
Andrew Wells Published date: February 8, 2017
NBA JAM's glory lives on in a good, solid mobile game that has the classic campaign (unlike some versions) and touch controls that act work pretty well. EA didn't completely s#@t on this game; that's the highest complement i can pay them. Full Review
A Google User Published date: September 9, 2017
Had this app on my other phones. Installed it on my galaxy note 8 and the crossover gesture (shaking phone) doesn't work. Would rate back up to 5 star if they patch it. Full Review
John Blake Published date: January 12, 2018
Spectacular gameplay & graphics. It's a crying shame EA won't update the rosters for such an amazing piece of work. Full Review
Dan L Published date: September 3, 2017
This app crashes almost as soon as you start it. I'd give it less than 1 star if Google Play would allow it as it should at least work to get one. Come on devs WHAT the WHAT is going on and how much longer before you get it working as it's been broken for months now. Hello Devs.....If I was this incompetent in the upkeep at my work I'd be looking for a new job already, this is ridiculous. Get this working on newer phones. "Hello McFly...." Full Review
Greg Enos Published date: October 27, 2017
Game is rigged at higher difficulties where the opposing team makes ridiculous shots. Game does not save my progress and made me re-do an entire game when i had only 30 seconds left. Utter garbage, absolutely rigged like the 2004 playoffs. A joke at $2.99, don't waste your money Full Review
David Kulasiewicz Published date: February 11, 2017
It's rather ridiculous that I'm still playing with rosters TWO YEARS OLD! PLUS MY BUCKS DON'T HAVE GIANNIS, YOU KNOW AN ALL STAR STARTER, NOT TO MENTION THEIR OLD LOGO!!!! COME ON EA!!!! WE SPENT $ ON THIS GAME AND QUITE FRANKLY I WANT A REFUND! YOU CAN'T TAKE ALL THAT MONEY THEN FORGET ABOUT EVER REFRESHING AND/OR UPDATING IT! WHEN I SAW THE UPDATE TODAY I GOT EXCITED BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WAS ROSTER/LOGO/TEAM UPDATES AND IT WASN'T! SOME STUPID "BEHIND THE SCENES" IMPROVEMENTS??? PLEASE!!! Full Review
Mark Hibbard Published date: January 9, 2018
Cleared app data and now it starts properly. Needs an update either way. Rosters way out of date Full Review
Daniel Winter Published date: December 27, 2017
Would be a 5 star, but just upgraded my phone and my game progress, while saved, did not transfer over to the new phone. Disappointed. Full Review
Rob D Published date: February 11, 2017
Doesn't work without data connection, good luck playing it at times you don't have signal or wifi. Which is the only time I'd be interested. Full Review
POSTMAN TV Published date: October 1, 2017
Over all its a great game. Only thing that bothered me is the fact that its missing some key legends... There is no MJ. No Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley,Jason Kidd,Pistol Pete,Muggsy Bogues,Kareem Abjul-Jabbar,Scottie Pippen,Grant Hill,Alonzo Mourning,Shawn Kemp,Penny Hardaway,Chris Webber, and thats just to name a few. Didn't it also use to have like Jazzy Jeff and the fresh Prince? You need to add them and update my game since I paid for it. Full Review
Ryan Honeycutt Published date: April 20, 2017
I used to like this game a lot but when I upgraded my phone to a galaxy s8 it started crashing at launch. So I wasted my moneyh in buying it. Full Review
Shane Stenson Published date: October 28, 2017
Doesn't work on my pixel 2 xl. When I go to open the game, It crashes almost instantly. Please fix it, this game is very fun to play. Full Review
Published date: September 8, 2017
Fantastic version of the game. I remember playing this version on the Wii, and it looks amazing, and this is on a smartphone, no less! The controls work wonderful considering your on a touch screen, and the gameplay is a fairly smooth, even on a budget 30$ smartphone. Absolutely worth the buy if your into sports games. Also includes the ability to push your enemy down and not get a foul, which is just amazing. Full Review
