Can someone explain to me why...
by Dubs1 on 2019/02/16 05:28
This game was never made ‘Universal’ so I can play on my iPad as well? Devs stopped making two separate apps for iPhone/itouch and iPad loooong ago. Of course greedy EA refuses to get in line with the rest of the market.
On Fire Edition (?)
by prettyhole4U on 2019/02/14 04:41
There is no button to call for an alley oop in tag mode or a way to call for a shove. That would be nice to have along with team fire after alley oops are performed. The quarter tilt dunk should be added more often. The default dunk is getting boring and the fire dunks shouldn’t always be so high it slows the fun down. ✨🛸
Bug reporting is not easy for this game
by WarEagle82 on 2019/02/09 22:01
I hate to put this out there for the whole world to see, but I navigated around your website way too long to report a simple bug. The bug is this: while playing the classic campaign, the announcer referred to either Javale McGee or Danilo Gallinari (Denver Nuggets) as “Tyreke Evans” during a shot and a rebound.
Rosters not updated but...
by MN95345 on 2019/02/09 19:48
Having been an IT developer, my feeling is without rewriting the entire app, they can't update the rosters in its current setup. So instead, they just tweak the experience so it's fantastic. Sad but I bet that's the issue and why nobody has done anything about it in 5 years.
Ea is horrible
by Zacklord22 on 2019/02/08 23:56
Of course another ea game ruined my dynamic difficulty adjustment
SUPPORT MFI CONTRILLERS

Great game but the rosters have not been updated in years. 5 stars if the game was updated.
Please update the rosters
by MrMosley on 2019/02/06 15:23
Update the rosters. You tweak the game but do nothing with the content. Please update the rosters.

NEEDS ROSTER UPDATE
by Bodie15 on 2019/02/06 02:06
& the game would easily be rated 5 stars
No roster updates....
by angryboi44 on 2019/02/06 00:46
I honestly love this game except for one thing.........THEY NEVER UPDATE THE ROSTERS LOL. Like literally they haven’t updated the rosters in about 3 years or so. Kevin Duran is still on the thunder in this game. I would gladly give them 4 or 5 stars if they updated the rosters and didn’t slack on making the game more up to date.
App recently updated but rosters not?
by bro-santi on 2019/02/05 22:19
Update the dang rosters already. No point in updating the app if you can’t do that
Update roster

UPDATE ROSTERS!!!
ATTENTION EA!
by Mgf913 on 2019/01/27 15:50
Good game. Please make another update and add 2018-2019 rosters. Otherwise, pretty solid. Gameplay is fantastic, and the arcade style of game truly bring a throwback feel.
Great Game
by mrcoolgames132 on 2019/01/23 00:07
I am only a pre teen, but I love this game. I don’t have any nostalgia but it’s still so fun to play with all the crazy dunks and how you have to time your shot. Would recommend this game to anyone.
Rosters
by PdYUPdatsme on 2019/01/16 19:00

by EJ Y on 2019/01/13 18:28
I purchased this game long ago, I just got back to it. I suggest you guys keep improving the game with different options and just keep the game moving. I know there is much more you can add for improvements.
Needs MFI controller support
by LaserGazer on 2019/01/11 11:06
Looks good but difficult with onscreen controls. MFI support would make it 100 times better. Disappointed ☹️
What’s up with the update for 2019
by THE ReAL CASTLEGATE rd on 2019/01/09 13:47
Great game but we need an update this is Ridiculous you got players that retired players who are on different teams this is a great game but we must do BETTER

by Zay Babie on 2019/01/04 06:19
It would be nice if this jam was updated like nba playgrounds 2
Updated Rosters
by jcoch22 on 2018/12/31 06:52
Although this game is still fun and enjoyable, I’d like to see the rosters updated yearly so match ups continue to be interesting as well as being able to unlock other characters that have possibly since retired in the past 5 to 10 years.
Update Rosters
by NBA Fan01 on 2018/12/29 23:08
Great game!!! Remember it playing it on Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. Please add more fun to it adding 2018-2019 player rosters to their current teams and new players in the NBA. Such as Lebron James, Lonzo Ball (Lakers) Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors).
Update
by kemarion75 on 2018/12/29 02:15
If any of the creators of the game read this message can you please update the game I love this game and I think you really have some thing but if you can just change the a little and make fun if you just add some more people and change the team to the players they have play now and add some more hall of fame player to the teams and maybe this can be the best game on iOS

Game is boring after the first play through. It definitely needs to be updated. PLEASE UPDATE THE ROSTERS !!!! EA should issue yearly updates
Good.

I just love this game.
Game is fun but the rosters...
by ZMac9387 on 2018/12/20 22:00
My complaint is purely based on rosters. How can a company like EA update the game consistently but not update the rosters. I’ll never understand it
Woah

Rosters tho
Almost perfect
by elusive_exclusives on 2018/12/05 19:33
Excellent game from my past. The only major drawback is the failure to switch sides at halftime. And the occasional glitching controls not sensing touching of screen.
UPDATE ROSTERS PLEASE!!!!!!
by TH1287 on 2018/12/04 18:37
The game is okay and not really worth the 4.99. It’s honestly worth like .99 or free. The rosters are like 3 years old and the game is way too easy.
Still fun but
by locazio on 2018/12/03 05:04
As many have already said, this game needs an update with the new nba roster, please update. It has been too long. Keep the app buyers updated and you will get new ones even.
Please update game put new players in !!!😧
by Sonic43330 on 2018/11/17 16:13
I want you guys to update the game because the new nba season already started and I want to play as the new nba people. Hope you can update and thanks for the support
Update!
by Stick Stick Stick on 2018/11/17 04:54
The game is a classic. It’s fun to play. That being said,... For god’s sake, please update the rosters! I want to run the floor with Kyrie and Gordon in Celtic green! Instead, I’ve got Avery Bradley and Gerald Wallace?!? C’mon!!
NEEDS NEW TEAMS

EAAAA UPDATE THE ROSTERS PLEASEEEEE I BEGGG
Was great, but now lame and won’t even open, DON’T BUY!
by JJPulley on 2018/11/07 01:50
I loved this game back in the day in the arcade, and I first got the iOS version back in 2011, it was DOPE and rekindled fond memories. Then around the release of iPhone6 the app didn’t want to open, ever!!! Even today on my iPhone X it still crashes on start up. Prior to that the rosters weren’t being regularly updated (2014 is it’s last roster update), along with some questionable player stats & outright player omissions. I REALLY enjoyed playing this game the first few years (despite the ridiculous cheating the A.I. does after half-time when you’re whooping the computer’s arse) but the past 3 years I couldn’t even open the game as it always crashes now. Just happened again today (and yes I keep the app updated) so I finally deleted it. Don’t waste your time or money as EA stopped caring about supporting this game years ago.
Roater Update
by TheAnswer323 on 2018/11/06 07:20
This is the only game of its kind, I think it’s only fair and makes sense to give an updated rosters update.....
Same game for years
by Imabossalways on 2018/11/05 23:04
Seriously, update the rosters. You still have Steve Nash on the Lakers and Larry Sanders on the Bucks. It’s been like this for years. I was surprised to see an update finally and re-downloaded the app only to be disappointed again.
Great but could add some things.
by difmfmrc on 2018/11/04 17:49
Could you( ea) add season mode?could you also add a halftime show please?could you make it so we can make substitutions whenever we want besides halftime please?could you add the old teams logos like the bobcats and the blue and light brownish wizards,etc?could you make an intro to the game?could you maybe have could like a shooting foul?
Updated rosters
by Dreyden25 on 2018/11/04 03:06
Please try to get updated rosters it would make the game soooooo much better.

Only bad things about this game is the rosters
Update please!!!
by scttnrrs on 2018/10/27 18:05
Update: still not updated??? Dang Durant still on the Thunder lol! Warriors don’t even have Klay??? Who wants to play the Warriors without both splash brothers. This is ridiculous. Greatest basketball game in history in my opinion. Would love to have an update of rosters, some new cheat codes, etc. Been playing for over a year, and would to see something new…please!!!
Serious Update

Please give this or the Xbox version a roster update. It would make the game amazing and so many people would buy it. I still would rather play this over nba playgrounds but other people might not.
Great game but multiple problems
by FatawcHgzdg on 2018/09/27 02:32
EA has built a great game but they have been slacking on the updates. I have some ideas that I think will really help the game. First, the game has fallen way behind on the rosters, most players have either been either A. Traded B. Retired or C. Just didn't get signed, and since the last roster update a ton of rookies have entered the league. This will greatly improve the game. Another idea that i think will help the game is the choice of jerseys. Having to play a game with the same uniforms every time gets a little irritating after a while. And I’m not talking about just having a choice of just home and away but having a wide selection of uniforms. I think that will greatly improve the game. Lastly, the legends, you add legends like, Larry Bird, Manute Bol, James Worthy Etc. They were all very well known. What about the players like Micheal Jordan, Allen Iverson or Magic Johnson Etc. they were great players just like the very few legends that are in the game. That will help the help the games rating skyrocket. I really hope you will greatly consider adding my ideas to the game. Thank you for your time.
Do You Care?
by Push Bricks on 2018/09/26 20:21
This can actually be one of the best games on IOS...the multiplayer game mode is awesome for example. The problem is that it’s clear the EA stopped caring about it. They charge a lot of money to really enjoy the features (I think $12 for the app plus upgrades) yet the rosters are all out of date and the player’s ability rankings are clearly done by people who don’t watch basketball. If you would please just respect the hard earns money people are putting in to buy this and update the app you would have a phenomenal product.
It’s fun but...
by G1234gghj on 2018/09/14 05:28
It’s fun but y’all really need to upgrade the players... The youngest players that have are the 2014 draft class smh
Used to be good.
by Christopherhammontree on 2018/09/09 23:51
Went from a 5 🌟 to a flop. Can't play it and I have a iPhone 6 plus. I want my money back! Updated 9/9/18: It’s ok when I’m just playing a quick game. I don’t care about the rosters to be honest like others. I would like to see better graphics since I have a newer phone. But it’s EA they don’t care so get what you can and enjoy what you can out of this game.
Great nostalgic game overall, does need some updates...
by Big Kev 7 on 2018/09/08 05:17
This game is awesome, great nostalgic play for us 90s big kids, it has some glitchy controls I must admit. If you’re holding down turbo on offense and go for a shot it passes the ball almost every single time. For this being a premium game, and in the top 100 for as long as it has, it deserves roster updates at least a few. It appears they made some at some point but there needs to be more. Either that or allow customized trades, it’s your highest ranked sports game, do some updates. And pay Jordan, good god the GOAT needs to always be in these games, and he never is. Make it happen. 4 stars for a 5 star playability game for now. Great job remastering it for touch interface.

Great game but y’all need to fix the roster
Update Roster Please
by WooH777 on 2018/08/24 20:18
Update the roster to show more current NBA players. Or move players to their current teams. I appreciate the players you have now but new faces or a switch up would refresh the game. Plus an online option to play other people around the world would be cool too.
Rosters are missing a certain something
by sadplayerrr on 2018/08/21 21:58
Updates... but I see no difference. Rosters haven’t changed in years. Really wish they’d keep it up to date.

Great game but are you guys going to update stats and rosters? I would love to have updated rosters at the start of this upcoming season. It would definitely keep more people playing this game. Otherwise it gets boring. Roster changes are the main reasons why people buy new sport games. At least that’s what I do
Roster updates

When will you update political players?

Horrible updates
by Zambo Da Zinci on 2018/08/16 13:27
I’ve had this game for some time now and you would think that they would update the rosters accordingly. But unfortunately I don’t think any roster is recognizable with lack of updated rosters. And the iPhone X has been out for over a year. Can I please play a game that takes up the whole screen please.
Fun but needs roster updates
by Hahshshshvshamsiam on 2018/08/16 03:01
They need to update the rosters bad. The game is still very fun though
UPDATE
by COHeather on 2018/08/12 00:41
I love playing this game once and a while, but I would play it so much more often if you updated the rosters. Having a modern NBA jam would attract so many more people. Please update rosters and ratings.
Update the rosters

This game is really good the only problem is that the roster is to old and it needs to be updated
MFI Compatibility?!?
by DJ Aido on 2018/08/04 00:44
This game brings back memories. It would be a solid 4 stars if you could use a mfi controller. Playing with the on screen controls is just ridiculously bad. Updated rosters would warrant 5 stars from me. Please make more games MFi compatible.

by Topeka101 on 2018/07/31 22:55
This game is excellent, but I would play it 20x more if the rosters were accurately updated. Seriously. Also, I’ve noticed a bug where sometimes when I shove, my player jumps up for a block.
Update New Rosters
by DJake78 on 2018/07/30 14:02
Update this app like the game with new rosters just like on other platforms. If that happens you'll get a 5. This is me following up and trying to see why new rosters haven’t been updated!!!!!
ROSTER UPDATES🤦🏾‍♂️
by Roater Update on 2018/07/30 03:11
This is ridiculous. It’s been 3 years since the last update of the rosters. This is one of my favorite games of all time EA; please update this joint man.
Nostalgia
by Brentbuscus on 2017/01/07 03:35
This game reminds me of playing with my dad, on the court or in the game. A lot of people are complaining about the game right now for no justified reasons. The big complaint is the rosters. While the rosters are not accurate the question is do they need to be. I'm coming to this game because of how great the franchise is, not because how much I love watching a Lakers game. The game isn't about idolizing our favorite players it's about letting us become a player. Secondly people are saying the controls are bad. I wish I could respond to this one, but my controls, as well as those of everyone I asked, are great. That's not the game, that's your lack of skill. Thirdly people say that the physics are bad. But the answer to that is that it's because it's a staple in NBA Jam games. Ever since the Sega Genesis (you whining kids probably don't know what it is, it's an old phone, that was hooked up to a tv and you could only play games on it, and only one at a time) the games have always had bad physics and I know that's a lot of people's favorite part. My only complaint is that Trump isn't on the Republican Team. I love what y'all do, keep up the awesome work. -Brent
Deleted! Don't Buy!
by bpowpow15 on 2016/08/10 05:28
DO NOT BUY UNTIL EA STARTS RESPECTING ITS CUSTOMERS 1st I love how every time you "update" the game, it's ALWAYS worse than before! Congratulations on NEVER listening to the people that actually spend their money expecting a playable game. And who does EA have doing Player Ratings? A chimp? It's funny that the ratings are actually WORSE than before. How is it that Curry is ranked 8 for 3 point shooting? And 7 or 8 for dribbling? Are you kidding me? Yet there are tons of guys that have 9's and 10's in each of those categories that aren't even starters in the NBA lol. How is Klay Thompson not even on the Warriors squad, but Jason Richardson is? Yippee. I totally want to play as an average player instead of a champ. I can go on and on, but I'll just leave it with that 1 example. Right now, this unplayable. LISTEN TO THE FANS EA!!! Worst company there is when it comes to listening to customer complaints. It's like they go out of their way NOT to create the game everyone wants. Do not listen to 5 star reviews! Only reasons I can think of that someone would rate it higher than 1 or 2 stars is either A)Works for EA, or 2)Have never seen a real NBA game in their life, and have no idea what player stats should be. Again... Curry, best 3pt shooter of all time who can hit from half court with ease, is rated as an 8!!! MVP and he doesn't have a meaningful stat above 8. Unbelievable
Great game but multiple problems
by FatawcHgzdg on 2018/09/27 02:32
EA has built a great game but they have been slacking on the updates. I have some ideas that I think will really help the game. First, the game has fallen way behind on the rosters, most players have either been either A. Traded B. Retired or C. Just didn't get signed, and since the last roster update a ton of rookies have entered the league. This will greatly improve the game. Another idea that i think will help the game is the choice of jerseys. Having to play a game with the same uniforms every time gets a little irritating after a while. And I’m not talking about just having a choice of just home and away but having a wide selection of uniforms. I think that will greatly improve the game. Lastly, the legends, you add legends like, Larry Bird, Manute Bol, James Worthy Etc. They were all very well known. What about the players like Micheal Jordan, Allen Iverson or Magic Johnson Etc. they were great players just like the very few legends that are in the game. That will help the help the games rating skyrocket. I really hope you will greatly consider adding my ideas to the game. Thank you for your time.
Does EA Sports even look at these reviews?
by Kjfitz08 on 2016/07/27 19:22
My number one complaint with this game is that they seem to only update the rosters about once every three years. They even say "updated rosters!" on the app when you find it in the App Store, yet Steve Nash is still on the Lakers roster. Plus they have players numbers wrong. LeBron wears number 6 with the Cavs? Come on, are you even trying? I think the last time they updated rosters was 2014. I just got an update for this app today so I was really excited that they might be updating the rosters since the update was around 350mb. But nope, it was a huge update that took forever to download and it didn't change a thing. So frustrating. Also lets talk about player ratings. LeBron and Kyrie are both rated as 9 for 3 pointers, but Steph Curry is an 8 for 3 pointers? How do you determine player ratings? Do you draw numbers out of a hat? I gave this app 2 stars but only because it's fun to play. Considering the cost of $5, I would not recommend this game to others only because EA Sports does nothing to maintain rosters or ratings and they clearly ignore user feedback.
Terrible controls since the update
by City lit on 2016/09/04 09:17
Ever since the update the Game keeps crashing!!!! I gave it a chance thinking I might have accidentally touched the wrong icon while playing but over and over again, the game has been screwing up. My finger was centered on the turbo while running and several times now my player, while on defense would push or jump when I never moved my thumb or on offense launch the ball for a full court shot! This has significantly and negatively affected the entire gameplay. Another glitch, amongst a number of glitches, is if I do a layup or shoot the ball and the ball rolls around the rim before dropping through the hoop, after the ball goes in, the announcer will say 'score' or '2 points' or whatever and then say 'rebound' as the opposing team takes the ball out for the inbound pass. So whoever is taking the ball out automatically gets awarded a free rebound. Sometimes the announcer will call out the wrong name for the player I'm using. On the stats page, even with the highest stats, the numbers are sometimes highlighted in red. Please fix the game.
Serious need to new update to fix glitches
by CamMan3 on 2016/07/28 04:51
This game is really fun but the rosters need some serious updates. So many players in the game are retired and it looks like EA doesn't care at all. Plus with the new update the music glitches and stops playing when I go on fire. The commentary voice is now seriously glitchy, and the turbo button is not working. Before this update, the commentary voice was bad for announcing some of the players names and team names. Obviously Steph Curry being an 8 in threes is ridiculous yes, but on top of that there are players in the game whose ratings are even worse. Kawhi Leonard, a player who If I am correct shot 50% from three point this year, has a TWO rating in 3pt shooting. Paul Millsap is honestly terrible if you know how to steal at all. You can tell they got lazy because there are many characters who are talented in real life who have the exact same horrible rating. Like EA is not even customizing ratings in this game between players. It's a shame because this game is really fun and EA is clearly not putting in the effort to satisfy its customers.
Game logic is almost non-existent.
by KLCEO on 2017/09/01 19:07
Game is RIGGED. I was "On Fire" and missed 7 in a row and on 8th attempt I faked out defender and knocked him down. He recovered and jumped across several feet to block my shot before I could release the ball. If I make an attempt to steal, I can't get off the ground to block a shot. Too many inconsistencies and stupid bugs. You're under the basket and jump to block and your player automatically jumps away from the ball. Play on rookie level and the other team plays like expert. CPU players can steal from you several players away from in front of you or behind. Game does not have integrity... a POS! No stars. Correction negative five stars. Seen your updates and the game went from poor to a waste of space. Calmly put, the game under performs. Turbo seems useless. Controlled & CPU players on my team randomly move away from the ball. My CPU player rarely attempts a block and fails the vast majority of times when he does. Almost impossible to block short range jumpers around the hoop when my player jumps away from the ball.
It’s almost just like the classic, which also ticked me off
by Hawk2928282828282828 on 2018/06/21 14:11
So it’s cool and all, I can beat teams on the hardest difficulty, beat the campaign, all that, it’s cool, whatever. My problem is the challenges, scoring triple the opponents points.. it seems like first two quarters, you can hit almost anything, easily juke or just run around the guy guarding you, I usually go up to like a 45-6 lead at halftime.. but apparently, all teams have the warriors 3rd quarter drive, and block anything I throw up (even when I knock them down right before shooting), always connects on their shoves, and will get every steal they go for, whereas I magically can’t steal anymore, and can’t block, because after halftime, all they do is dunk the ball... so 45-6 lead at half turns into a 55-20 lead at end of 3rd, which makes triple score harder.. then of course, magically, 4th quarter, same thing.. steals blocks shoves for them, nothing for me, ends up being like 65-35.. not even double..

by TanN?R on 2017/09/24 02:26
This is possibly the greatest game of all time. There are a few adjustments to be made though. Rosters should be changed to where each team has 4-6 current players every year and 1-2 legends. For example add klay kd and dray to the warriors and Kyrie and Hayward to the Celtics. It would be cool if you could make like a myseason mode where you play 41 games and then the playoffs or a way to play multiplayer with people around the world. Also you could add trump and pence to the republicans. If you could add Kareem, Jordan and older players. The best way to keep this game alive is to spice it up. Take players a give them a dynasty to build. This will be a very good game if y'all can keep it updated.
Great nostalgic game overall, does need some updates...
by Big Kev 7 on 2018/09/08 05:17
This game is awesome, great nostalgic play for us 90s big kids, it has some glitchy controls I must admit. If you’re holding down turbo on offense and go for a shot it passes the ball almost every single time. For this being a premium game, and in the top 100 for as long as it has, it deserves roster updates at least a few. It appears they made some at some point but there needs to be more. Either that or allow customized trades, it’s your highest ranked sports game, do some updates. And pay Jordan, good god the GOAT needs to always be in these games, and he never is. Make it happen. 4 stars for a 5 star playability game for now. Great job remastering it for touch interface.
Was great, but now lame and won’t even open, DON’T BUY!
by JJPulley on 2018/11/07 01:50
I loved this game back in the day in the arcade, and I first got the iOS version back in 2011, it was DOPE and rekindled fond memories. Then around the release of iPhone6 the app didn’t want to open, ever!!! Even today on my iPhone X it still crashes on start up. Prior to that the rosters weren’t being regularly updated (2014 is it’s last roster update), along with some questionable player stats & outright player omissions. I REALLY enjoyed playing this game the first few years (despite the ridiculous cheating the A.I. does after half-time when you’re whooping the computer’s arse) but the past 3 years I couldn’t even open the game as it always crashes now. Just happened again today (and yes I keep the app updated) so I finally deleted it. Don’t waste your time or money as EA stopped caring about supporting this game years ago.
Worst Company?**UPDATED**
by Ho44 on 2018/06/28 01:02
How about giving this great title to a company that will actually show it the respect it deserves? This game should be the benchmark for the iPhone 5, but no none nada zip updates in forever. Sad. Laggy & embarrassingly outdated rosters make this a current version an "I'll pass". UPDATE … 5 YEARS LATER … Love the new update! Gameplay is impeccable. The wider X screen is better for gameplay because now my thumb doesn't cover as much of the court as it did on my 7+. Graphics are amazing. The screen could fit a little better on the iPhone X though. My review would be 5 stars if the rosters would've been updated. The older rosters do give it a bit more of a retro vibe, I guess.
Great game
by DamianQ11 on 2017/03/26 02:59
Overall I love this game it's probably one of my favorite mobile games to play. I never get bored of it, it really doesn't have anything wrong with the game at all but I would like to see one thing change about the game. I would want to see the roster updates with the players in the NBA now and have new players to unlock like with Kobe and put him as a legend and have a way to try and unlock him if you get what I mean. But overall really love this game. Thanks for the great game, hopefully you guys see this review and edit and fix up the rosters. :)
Needs fixing
by Alfred Morris 37738710 on 2017/06/04 17:20
First off, FIX THE MASCOTS! They shouldn't look so skinny, and if they looked real I would EASILY rate this game 5 stars. So many people can't play with mascots in NBA 2K and if they looked real here EVERYONE WOULD GET THIS GAME!! Fixing that will bump the game up to four star caliber. The gameplay is a great concept, but the glitches are annoying. They are not unplayable glitches, but it really impacts the game. Sometimes, when I swipe from the sprint button to the green button, it passes, or pushes, and when I swipe to the from the sprint to the blue button, it jumps instead. This goes on for a few plays and it's really annoying. The rosters really need updating too.
Update Rosters and Ratings
by Soolguydabeenster on 2016/07/30 10:27
This is getting ridiculous. Y'all seriously need to update your rosters and ratings. I got really excited the other day when I saw there was an update for this game, and even more excited when it took forever to download because that meant it was a big update, but of course, the rosters and ratings did not change. I'm from Orlando, I love playing with the Magic, but I can't because Oladipo has TWO'S for everything. TWO'S. How did y'all botch that so bad? And then of course there's Kawhi with a 2 three point rating, Steph with an 8 three, Love with a 6 three, etc etc. How hard is it to fix these? If y'all aren't going to, at least give us the option to so we can do what you're too lazy to.
Great Game but...
by Hoopsguy1010 on 2018/06/15 03:20
I love the game I give it five stars money well spent but I’m actually bugged on how old the rosters are. I mean I’m a philly guy and Philadelphia 76ers have Iverson and Dr. J I love the style but the rosters are so old. The only roster sort of up to date is Cavs with Kyrie and LeBron but Kyrie is not on cavs anymore. Like the rosters are so so so old. I saw some guy complaining about mascots but those are really good btw. Also the Lakers have KOBE BRYANT in this game. Kobe is retired boy. I love the game a lot I play it nonstop but the rosters always bug me. (Also why does the game have Shaq?)
5 stars
by coltonmon on 2017/11/30 11:41
All these baby’s are complaining about having to pay for some content or “updates being worse than how the game was” people don’t understand that it’s the same game.... also there are always available stars that you can play with without buying extra content... also you don’t even need to buy the extra content because you can unlock them by completing tasks and getting them as rewards Amazing game
Great Game
by EoNuvo on 2017/03/25 15:48
The game is great, to the controls, gameplay, and overall I have no complaints. But the rosters and the stats of players are what gets on my nerves. As a Nets fan playing the game, I hate seeing Deron Williams and Joe Johnson there when they left the team and the only player left is Brook Lopez. And if I'm not playing for the Nets, it is also a problem with the uniforms. And, a suggestion, to add all-star teams and update that team every year in all star weekend, while updating the roster at the beginning of every season.
Roster and Player Ratings
by Hotshotsilva10 on 2018/06/27 05:41
I've been playing this game for awhile but still haven't seen the rosters updated to the most current players and given the correct ratings. I was excited to see that there was an update and was hoping to see Durant on the Warriors to finally replace David Lee, BUT STILL NO ROSTER UPDATES. Some teams have players that aren't even in the league anymore, or are completely irrelevant. Also, the player ratings are awful. There are multiple big name players with sub par rating and vice versa. I think I speak for most people when I say the roster and player ratings are long overdue for an update, and make this game less appealing.
Fine game and App
by StuPitt on 2017/08/25 17:14
The whiners of this game annoy me. The rosters here are from 2014. Everyone understand that. Stephen Curry although still on GS was not the same player in 2013 that he is now. I'll use EAsports NBA game on consoles as an example. Every year they release a game at $70 a pop. Why would this $2.99 App be updated with rosters every year for free? Use your heads people! Additionally, game play is great for a phone. Also great graphics.
JUST UPDATE THE ROSTER👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾👊🏾
by Mr hotsauce on 2017/06/04 02:07
I've had this game for about 3 years maybe longer but I don't hate the controls matter of fact I feel like the latest update tighten things up a lot a few glitches but nothing that stops the fun. But really will u please please just UPDATE THE ROSTER I was happy when u finally put harden on here but that was soooo long ago. Please man just UPDATE THE ROSTER AND ATTRIBUTES or just make a new updated NBA JAM but please we need Durant on the warriors draymond klay boogie butler Isaiah etc....I think the ones who stuck it out deserve at least that
Great game!! Needs updates
by blancobean on 2016/11/12 04:02
I love playing this game!! It's a favorite of mine since it came out in the 90's in game consoles. The gesture controls need some work though. My player keeps passing the ball when I'm trying to make him shoot or dunk. It's pretty frustrating and hasn't always done that. Please fix it so I can get back to ballin'. Also an update on the teams would be nice. Sure doesn't look like the teams of the last year or two
AMAZING!!!!! Super Fun Game❣️❤️😃
by Owen 💩💩 on 2017/04/23 23:44
I've been playing this game on my wii ever since first grade, and let me tell you, the fun never gets old. I was super happy to get this game today when I saw it on iphone. Seriously, I love this app!!! It is super fun and the best graphics in a basketball video game ever!🙂 Now, yeah, you guys need to do a roster update(this was realized after reading the hater's reviews),but besides that, this is a very good game. Thank you,EA!!!❤️😃❤️😃
Rosters
by nba get schooled son on 2018/07/12 04:34
Please for the love of god update the rosters they’re a century old and that’s the only reason you get three stars and add some different players you can tell the last roster update was forever ago because Lbj and Kyrie have higher 3 point ratings then Stephen curry please just update the rosters who wants to buy a five dollar game and then get old rosters I don’t even think ea sports cares any more about this game!So please give your nba and ea games fans some love and listen to the people!!!
Great Game!!!
by Good835295 on 2016/07/27 02:31
I've been playing since 2011 lol, please update to what the current rosters are. Imagine being the Knicks and playing as KP and having the option of Rose and Noah, or The Clippers with CP, Blake and Deandre or even Golden State and playing as Curry, Durant, Green, and Thompson. Teams are stacked! Let's get an updated roster as soon as possible! EA, I would like to thank you for all you have already done!
Update
by kemarion75 on 2018/12/29 02:15
If any of the creators of the game read this message can you please update the game I love this game and I think you really have some thing but if you can just change the a little and make fun if you just add some more people and change the team to the players they have play now and add some more hall of fame player to the teams and maybe this can be the best game on iOS
Do You Care?
by Push Bricks on 2018/09/26 20:21
This can actually be one of the best games on IOS...the multiplayer game mode is awesome for example. The problem is that it’s clear the EA stopped caring about it. They charge a lot of money to really enjoy the features (I think $12 for the app plus upgrades) yet the rosters are all out of date and the player’s ability rankings are clearly done by people who don’t watch basketball. If you would please just respect the hard earns money people are putting in to buy this and update the app you would have a phenomenal product.
Rosters
by POKERx2 on 2018/08/20 15:20
Great game but are you guys going to update stats and rosters? I would love to have updated rosters at the start of this upcoming season. It would definitely keep more people playing this game. Otherwise it gets boring. Roster changes are the main reasons why people buy new sport games. At least that’s what I do
Fun
by H2 H2 H2 on 2016/12/08 01:26
It's a really fun game, even though the graphics are a little old it's perfect for playing 🏀 when your waiting or around friends with no court. The only. Ad thing is the in-app purchases are expensive. I do recommend this game but might need and update because Kobe is still playing, and KD is on the thunder. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🏀🏀🏀🏀🏀
Classic Arcade Fun
by Knight3dkg on 2018/05/17 20:53
This game never gets old. Yes, rosters are not updated, but to me that is not necessary to have fun playing this game. NBA Jam will always be a staple on my mobile device. Remember, for the few negative reviews you see about anything, the are numerous positive ones that never get read/heard etc. Thank you again.
Addictive
by Angry Customer 48306 on 2017/11/26 11:11
Since I’ve dl’ed this game it’s all I play. Can’t get enough of it. Just like the old arcade/genesis game I remember. Only minor downside is I wish they updated the current rosters more but hey it’s not like the original got updated so any roster update I’ll take. Well worth the extra $7 to unlock all the old school players.
Awesome, but a bug needs fixing
by DrewTheOtaku on 2017/02/09 04:18
I really like this game. Games are awesome, play multiplayer, etc. However there's a bug I keep having. I was just playing in Classic Campaign and I got on fire and the music stopped. I didn't have volume off, I didn't turn music off either. Can you guys fix this? I'll give it 5 stars if fixed. Thanks. :) From -Andrew
Update for the love of god
by Olshefsky on 2016/12/16 13:30
I'm a 90s kid and love being able to play this throwback on my phone. Something I would like to see is an even more difficult level and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD update player rosters and or at least update player skill #s. After buying this app years ago there is nothing left to play for when the makers simply won't update this.
Can We Get A Roster Update??!!
by Jr300_650 on 2016/08/01 19:59
Why can we get a roster update more frequently. It been years that this roster hasn't been updated. Lebron and Kyrie has a higher rating than Curry in 3pt. Wuthahell. Also This game needs lefty shooters not just right hand shooters its boring. This game shouldn't be worth 5 dollars in the App Store, more like a 1$ dollar. So, Please change this roster and add lefty shooters, because many people are waiting on this for a long time. Please EA
Great but could add some things.
by difmfmrc on 2018/11/04 17:49
Could you( ea) add season mode?could you also add a halftime show please?could you make it so we can make substitutions whenever we want besides halftime please?could you add the old teams logos like the bobcats and the blue and light brownish wizards,etc?could you make an intro to the game?could you maybe have could like a shooting foul?
It works!
by Elias on 2016/07/28 03:07
Ok. For the longest time I too was frustrated that it did not work. In order to get the game to work you must DELETE the game and ALL its data first. 2nd reinstall the game and will work. The only reason why I'm giving it 4 and not 5 stars is b/c you will lose all of your previous achievements when you delete and reinstall the game. But Hey, it works now!
Update the rosters!
by Ifhil on 2016/08/09 13:28
This game is really great I love that I can play with old-school players against new school player but I really wish that the rosters were updated because then the game would be far more challenging and as of right now I'm beating everyone by at least 50 in legend mode.
Great but iPhone X needs help
by ScottF974 on 2018/02/17 18:54
When it plays its amazing. But on iPhone C the game crashes about 2 and a half minutes into an exhibition match. Sometimes a little shorter sometimes a little longer. I hope you guys can maybe fix it because the game itself is quite good. Happily change it to 5 stars if it gets ironed out.
Update
by CaptainDanny on 2017/01/10 22:44
Please try to fix the bug that crashes your game and doesn't save it. Every time I play a game it will crash periodically and sometimes will be like I never played the game at all, which means it doesn't save where I left off. Please fix in next update. And it would also be nice if you updated the rosters.
NBA jam
by Hardaway111 on 2018/06/26 12:04
Can y’all update the team 😩like for 2018 we need ankle breaker like on the regular version of nba jam we need a boss battle of 21 💯can y’all place do my wish i be so thankful this one of my favorite games we need where we can play with other play around the world we need a record 2
Fix the shoot button!
by olpdog on 2016/07/31 04:02
I've had this app for years and I've never had an issue with it until the most recent update. It has become very difficult to get my player to shoot the ball. I would estimate 3 out of every 5 times I try to shoot the ball, the player passes it. This happened right after the update. And as many others have stated, if you claim you update the rosters & the stats, please actually do it.
Behind the curve
by Ambikatus on 2016/09/07 20:51
The biggest reason I give this game 2 stars isn't the fact that the rosters still haven't updated, it's the glitchy shoot button. I re-installed the game and went through the tutorial again and almost couldn't get through the shooting portion. Every time I would hit the shoot button I would pass. This game has the potential to have 5 stars, but until these are fixed...a measly 2.
Needs Roster Update 2018
by Duckberg Slimm on 2018/02/23 19:13
Greatest Game Ever upDate the roster and make an open online game play platform whereas you can play anyone anytime anywhere just by hooking up not only wifi. Once again it’s ON, EA Make It happen make a search to play worldwide online and update the rosters 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
Used to be good.
by Christopherhammontree on 2018/09/09 23:51
Went from a 5 🌟 to a flop. Can't play it and I have a iPhone 6 plus. I want my money back! Updated 9/9/18: It’s ok when I’m just playing a quick game. I don’t care about the rosters to be honest like others. I would like to see better graphics since I have a newer phone. But it’s EA they don’t care so get what you can and enjoy what you can out of this game.
GREAT GAME!
by @Crack_MeaNa on 2017/07/01 20:22
Needs a update, new moves, players. Besides that i love the game. 1 of my all time favorites!! And now they have updated roster which makes it better..: i also think EA sports should make "NBA streets 1 & 2" and "NFL streets 1 & 2" i will kill for that, i miss those games, please make those for iphone and ipad in HD, PLEASE!!!!!
eh
by unknown memer on 2017/03/26 17:50
great gameplay but...the rosters need serious updating (for example: retired players are still in the game as current players and LeBron James wears #6), glitches need fixing, and ratings need updating (for example: Stephen Curry doesn't have too good shooting stats). It has serious potential if some simple updates and fixes are made.
Great great 👍🏼👍🏼
by JAG_the_Poet on 2018/01/21 21:52
Love this game been a fan of NBA Jam for years, only thing that bugs me is not being able to use my SteelSeries Nimbus controller to play it instead of using the touch screen controls, making this possible would be an excellent update to this game.
Sprite team and updated teams/current players
by AJ123715 on 2018/01/13 19:58
This is an awesome game with nice graphics and good controls, but I was wondering if you could add all the other secret teams and players from the console versions for people who bought the big man pack that are not on the phone and can you update the rosters plzzzzz
Technical difficulties
by 23-32-33 on 2018/01/01 03:37
I just bought this game a few days ago and for some reason it keeps shuttling off on me and closing out the app during a game, I can’t complete the second game in campaign mode, I just played my 10th second game.
