Slam 'N Jam '95 (3DO review)

Developer: Left Field Productions
Publisher: Crystal Dynamics
Released: 1995

Slam 'N Jam '95 is a basketball game that's exclusive to the 3DO.

+ Arcade-style gameplay is fast and enjoyable, and your season progress / individual stats for each player are saved.

+ Ability to customise a full season is excellent, and you can even choose to condense things by only playing each team once.

+ Controls are intuitive, and there's an immense amount of satisfaction to be had from running ISOs and setting screens.

+ Graphics are stunning thanks to cool scaling effects, and the players have lots of personality with their on-court reactions.

+ Enthusiastic commentary resembles NBA Jam (1993, Arcade) and the SFX do a terrific job of enhancing the atmosphere.

- Defense can be tricky, as your teammates are useless and the zoomed-in camera doesn't give you a good half-court view.

- No NBA teams or player licenses, and the CPU doesn't always intelligently use the clock at the end of a quarter.
