Boo-yah! We’ve made some courtside improvements to keep your slam dunks sky-high and on point.


Hi. We love this game but we have a question we have on the other besides the arcade controls and we dont know to fix it can somebody please help us If any of you play fornite our username is ninajmaster2788.

So this game is REALLY good and fun but its just sad that EA isnt trying to update the game for the new players. We wouldnt mind spending another $5 or $10 on another NBA Jam. They should at least try to make another NBA Jam V2 at least with new rosters and more custom things in the game. But OVR its a great game.

Imma keep short and simple. We love this game its one of our favorites classics. But we would be even better if you guys can add remote support PLEASEEEE! Thank you. Forever a Fan !

Hi. We played this game and its good to be honest. But.. Lot of people found some glitches and bugs (possibly) are being occurring in the game. And we were hoping that you make a bigger update than before. Like Adding music From the Console ports into this. And some other sound effects too. Plus fixing bugs and glitches. Like when a player shoots and the ball and pushes it back to the player. Somehow the CPU comes around and Grabs it instantly. Even when you mostly hold the ball still and shoot. It would sometimes automatically pass the ball to your teammate. And Im hoping you can Fix this and make this into a better and a new update. Thank you.

We really wish they had updated roster.

Best sport game in the App store. Keep rosters the same. Kobe Bryant Rip.

Porque no lo actualizan es un juego fabuloso baby.

We personally love this game, us and our son play it everyday and we have a special bond now because we play it with him. 5 stars. -Chad.

Lots of people reviewing this game are children so it makes sense they dont understand this is a throwback game lol. Anyway love how ea doesnt change the rosters makes game way better to use them and yeah game is good.

This game is great it plays smoothly in 2021 considering it was made six years ago we think it would be cool if EA could update the game and add new superstars in it thats our honest review and One more thing they should make the roster bigger and put Stephen Curry three point at the highest because Stephen Curry went bunkers The year this game came out.

Needs to be updated but is still our fav mobile game ever.

Really good game but update it.

NBA Jam is so fun. We love to play it when we are bored. Good job EA.

We kept losing for a while and took a break and now we came back and we win all our matches on legend and all-star man this game is the real deal also add MJ . We set records on the stat board JJL thats us. This is a high quality game that is fun to play.

We first got this game like 7 years ago, we re – downloaded it like a year ago and it manages to still be the best mobile basketball game even today, It is just such a good game, all the cool stuff you can get with codes and challenges just makes the game so much better too, the only thing that we wish the creator added was Michael Jordan, and if the creator is seeing this, PLEASE ADD HIM PLEASE.

This game dumb ash but we love it. Show NBA jam some love.


EA thanks for making this game It is very fun we love this game even though it has lack of updates it still fills our heart.

Love this game , can you please give us controller support?

One of the best basketball mobile game ever.

You guys should play online we try to play online because but nobody is online so please play online.

I’d love to use the Mogo joystick to play this! Hopefully you guys make this priority soon!

Till this day we keep finding our way back to nba jam we hope developers keep supporting this game for years to come, and maybe one day port the ps3 on fire edition to others platforms , EA if you are reading this consider this humble request theres many fans of this game that will back us up on that …. BOOMSHAKALAKA.

This game is awesome. We used to play it back when we were young. One thing is that it wont let us play multiplayer on ios. Am we doing something wrong?

Please fix multiplayer it wont let us play on it.

Wont download but it was good on the wii so.

Super fun game and they captured the feel of the old NBA Jam from our youth. Hope they update rosters one day. Also one critique would be to make legends difficulty mode a little harder.

Hey NBA JAM can you update new players on new teams on the game. We do like the old school teams but we would like the game to be like NBA2K20.

Mos definitely a great games rosters should be updated.

We love this game and it would be so much better with controller support.

Still one of the best basketball games Ever with a proven track record of generational players. We need controllers support for this one.

We love this game been playing it since we were a kid but can yall plz update the game and rosters.

We have nothing else to say. We really like it. Just update the roster. Its a fire game.

The only thing you could do to improve this classic is upgrade it to be played on the Apple TV……

Love this game. Please add controller support.

Imma keep short and simple. We love this game its one of our favorites classics. But we would be even better if you guys can add remote support PLEASEEEE! Thank you. Forever a Fan !

Fire game used to play this all the time as a kid. Nostalgic. Love how they use the old teams.

We love this game but it will be much better if it has controller support and roster update.

The game is superb! Dont let the negative reviews make you second guess getting this game. If youve played it on Xbox 360 and or Xbox One, youll enjoy playing it on your iphone. And of course, if youve never played it before, youre in for a treat. BOOM SHAKALAKA!

Please set up were we can use backbone.
