Veteran sports gamers are gonna recognize the name Double Dribble. Konami returns to the court with Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition for the Genesis. This one- to eight-player (yup, count 'em, eight) title features Dr. Naismith's game, in a form far different from anything he would recognize — no peach baskets on poles — just serious slams and death-defying dunks. Take your fast-break up the court and drive the roundball into the net. Double Dribble is back!
Did we say eight players? Sure did. Just plug in two Sega Team Player Adaptors and eight controllers and choose up sides, and you've got sweat-generating four-on-four action. Only got four folks available to play? No proble-mo. Just plug in one Team Player and play two on two. Double Dribble: The Playoff Edition has three modes of play Exhibition, Multi-play, and Playoff. Select the Playoff mode and choose your team from the 16 available. The first round consists of a best-of-five series, and the remaining rounds are best of seven. From the semifinal on, you get a password at the Game Results screen.
