NBA Action





NBA Action 


I am so very thankful we had the money to purchase NBA Action on the Sega Game Gear. Sports video games on the older hand helds can be something indeed. I had very low expectations for NBA Action on the Game Gear. Thankfully NBA Action surpassed almost all of those. We have all these NBA teams with five on five sports action. We even in menu screens can see the entire roster for those teams. I found that pretty impressive. I did not expect that many stats from this hand held sports video game.

Since we have so many players on the screen in NBA Action it can be difficult to see what is going on. The players are small and it is really easy to get a charging foul trying to move around the paint in NBA Action. On offense we can pass or shoot. Make sure you pass when you throw the ball in from out of bounds. I made that mistake a few times. When the game started I could not tell which team I was on at first.

The music and the special effect sounds are fantastic in NBA Action. One or two players can really jam to this sports video game. Note you will need two Game Gears, two copies of the game, and a link cord to play NBA Action in two player mode. Families can play NBA Action for 3, 6, 9 or 12 minutes quarters. The difficulties in NBA Action are Rookie, Veteran, and All Star. Families should be able to win in the Rookie mode.

The strangest thing in NBA Action is when the computer was throwing the ball in after a time out from the half court position. My character for some reason was on the far side of the court. This happened every single time. I have no idea why that kept happening. I had fun playing NBA Action on the Sega Game Gear. There are plenty of simulation aspects to this sports game. I would love to be able to play NBA Action on a regular size television set.
