Double Dribble 5 On 5
Double Dribble for the GameBoy. It's as intense as the NES version only now it's portable and in black and white. You have the full five men on the screen and game play is about as fast as the tiny screen will allow. Pick your team from a whole league and either play against the machine or go head-to-head with a friend by linking up two games for the type of sports action the Game-Boy needs.
Somehow, this game doesn t work on the little black and white GameBoy screen. The computer quickly takes advantage of this and annihilates the novice player! The cinemas are good, but this game becomes frustrating very fast. 5-on-5 could use more control too.
This is one sport that doesn't work well on the tiny screen. It's hard to see what's going on and it's pure luck it you make a basket. There should have been difficulty settings as playing against the machine is too frustrating. Now if I could dol an Arch Rivals move, and punch opponents...
An OK basketball game for the Gameboy. The graphics are average, its a little hard to judge depth when shooting a basket though. The game play is good, but the computer is way too advanced and always manages to steal the ball at just the right time. Cool slam dunk scenes!
Not what I expected from King Konami! Overly aggressive computer opponent doesn't give a player much of a chance to get into the game before non-stop steals take place. Control is slow, computer men run faster, and rarely miss a shot! Cinema action is very good!

You better sit down 'cause Konami's put out a new basketball Game Boy cart, Double Dribble, that might just knock you off your feet. The fact that Double Dribble is the only five-on-five player game available for the Game Boy is but one tiny detail on a list of pluses a mile long. What else? Well, there's horizontal scrolling for a full view of the court, eight teams to choose from, two player option via the Game Link, free throws, stealing, passing, and even jump shots that replicate prostyle playing. There obviously isn't much more you could possibly want from a hand-held b-ball cart, right?!
