NBA Showdown 


Hopefully you enjoyed the back and forth video we had of NBA Showdown. This is a solid retro basketball video game. It does have a couple of issues which I will get into in this review. The players are large and look great. The sounds are a bit too quiet for our tastes. Too much squeaking on the floor. The crowd noises are a sound byte or two. Which diminishes the overall game play experience.

Fouls are so random in NBA Showdown. Run into another player and it might be a charge, or it might be on the defense. It was easy to get stuck on other players. The computer likes to pass backwards a lot. I could never tell which shots would work and which ones would not. We had trouble getting dunks working, if this game even has that in it. I would think shooting right near the hoop should initiate a dunk.

I like having all of the teams in NBA Showdown. I like the different options available to us. Families can learn the basics of basketball thanks to NBA Showdown. I am very thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased this retro video game. It is a fun retro basketball video game for families to play. Obviously basketball video games improved after NBA Showdown.
