NBA Jam TE
by Electronic Arts
Jam! Jam! JAM! The Sega Saturn and Sony's PlayStation version features true arcade-style players. Scaling of players has been incorporated, giving NBA Jam fans realistic on-screen movements of characters. As in real-life basketball, the closer the players get to the screen, the bigger they become. It's just like you're actually playing the arcade version without having to find the coin slot.
Tournament Edition is loaded with features. With the NBA license, the game features more than 120 updated NBA superstars--even rookies. In the predecessor, you could only play one team versus another team. In TE, you can match up with the same team. Another big change that has been added is that you can rest your players after a quarter has expired. Here you may choose your clutch player to replace the injured guy.
At the Options Screen, you can turn Tournament Modes on or off; Juice Mode; icons (dunk from anywhere on the court, increased three-point ability and so forth) or even Tournament Play. These are some factors that make the game more challenging and enjoyable. Enter the tournament and see if you're good enough for the super team, but that's only when you've beaten all of the other teams.
Expect tons of hints and tricks for this puppy. The later version had a large number of tricks: big heads, secret teams and so forth. This is the closest you can get to the real thing.
