not one of EA's finest moments... - I was really excited to finally play NBA Jam on my Mac, I have NBA Jam on iPhone, Xbox, and PS3. in my honest opinion, they should of ported over the PS3/Xbox Version because the mac is capible of playing with an Xbox or PS3 Controller, it also has good preformance, I can play Real Racing 2 on my Macbook Air, and it still gets great FPS… EA I think you need to spend a lot more on this version of your NBA JAM Game :(

Fun - This game is fun, i am not much of a BB person, but i don't mind a game here and there. However I do love Real Racing, and it does support a gamepad, where as NBA does not. When it finally does support a gamepad, i will give it 5 stars.

Great Game But I'm Mad About 2 Things - This is a great game and very addictive. The reason i gave it two stars was one because there is no mj. i mean come on. how can u leave out the greatest player of all time. the other reason is that there is no jam store. on my ipad there is a jam store where u can buy all the characters and power ups. i am extremely frustrated because of those two things, but otherwise it is an awesome game.

game has never worked - This game has never worked for me and I’m unsure how to get a refund. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled a few times and it still never works. I’m not quite sure how they can get away with this given the other feedback indicating the same thing.

No Gampepad Support - I have a Logitech gamepad. Guess what? It doesn’t work. I should’ve read the reviews before assuming something like a gamepad was supported. You expect me to play this arcade game using the keyboard? That’s not how this game should work. Please support gameapds. Until then, I’m keeping my 1 star rating for this game. Also: Please update your description indicating that you can’t use a gamepad with this game. Oh, wait… you’re EA… you don’t care about your gamers as long as you get their money.
