Bought it at launch. Regret giving the developers any money for this trash game.

Have you updated it? Read online that they have a newer (current) version that replaced it.

Yes but it doesn't reflect the price seen through the eShop

Bought this at launch for PS4 and thought it was a huge waste of money. Updates have improved the game a lot, but it's still flawed in many ways. Ai is super cheap, online matches take awhile to find, and I cannot unlock John Stockton no matter how much time I put into this game because the card system of unlocks SUCKS. I don't need 5 Penny Hardaways, do away with the multiple repeats on unlocks already.

Thanks for this. Also saw some gameplay on YT. Gameplay and dunks doesn't look enticing at all. I'll wait for a true NBA Jam successor.

I know this is for the Switch, but if you have the Xbox Game Pass it's in there for free (not XBL Games with Gold, but Xbox Game Pass).

The game is painfully slow to load- like more than a minute to go from the player choice screen to tip-off which shouldn't be the case this day in age. I also don't really like how you can choose players- you have to remember which team they are on before you can look at any stats - and there can be the same player on multiple teams with different stats (ie: Dwight Howard). Even with all that, I have found the Tournaments pretty fun to unlock stuff. Yes, the card system is lame, but if you're familiar with Fifa or Madden Ultimate Team, it's pretty much the same - you get packs with no control over what players you receive. I went in hoping for an NBA Jam type game, and it strives for that, but isn't quite there yet.

I feel bad for anyone who paid $20 for it... and $10 is "OK". Maybe the Switch loads stuff faster, but it just seems the game is un-optimized.

I really wanted to like this game, but it didn't do anything for me. Maybe there was a trick to it, but it also looks like you have to manually unlock players or buy their DLC.

They give you a few starter packs, but it was a bunch of YouTube personalities and a few NBA role players for me.

I could see if you had to unlock Legends, but I can't even play with current rosters offline? Are you serious? Cheap cash grab to poach the cult following from NBA Jam/Street.

Just want to echo what is being said in here, this isn't worth playing period. Everything about it lacks polish and it seems like almost no affection was put into a single part of the game. It feels like they got 80% of the way there and stopped which isn't enough.
