North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtShowing off the extreme attitude of the arcade smash hit NBA Jam, Midway's NBA Showtime: NBA on NBC brings intense two-on-two arcade-style hoops to the Dreamcast. The emphasis is on fanatical basketball, with gravity-defying dunks and over-the-top animations. The game lets you select from 140 actual superstars representing all 29 NBA teams. Throw in wacky unlockable players such as team mascots and characters from other Midway games, and NBA Showtime: NBA on NBC is a fun departure from the more down-to-earth basketball simulations. Complementing the goofy gameplay is a feature-rich player editor, where you can customize everything from your created player's height, weight, and ability to clothing and facial features. With a TV-style presentation and impressive visuals, this is one hoops game that any arcade sports fan will enjoy. Simply put, if you liked NBA Jam, you'll love NBA Showtime. --Sajed Ahmed Pros: Remarkable in-game graphics, and even more impressive replays Detailed sideline commentary 4-player simultaneous action makes it a great party game Endorsed by Shaquille O'Neal--what more could you want? Cons: 2-on-2 arcade basketball has been around forever Shallow arcade play, without lasting depth or long-term playability
