NBA 2: All Star Challenge is hot basketball action on the small screen! You can go one-on-one with another player, enter a free throw contest, and even enter a slam dunk contest for points and prestige! When shooting for a slam dunk, the view changes to a side scrolling cinema display! You can also choose from 25 actual players to play as or play against. For some fast court action, NBA 2 delivers!

People say:


While real fans of basketball will find something to like about this game, it's hard to shrink the scope of the sport down to a size the GameBoy can handle. The graphics in this title are somewhat short on detail, but its overall representation of the sport isn't bad. With some minor problems, this game does O.K.


game review


This cart is a good attempt at bringing basketball to the GameBoy in a whole new way. I like the variety of events, there not enough control over the shots to really be accurate. I'm not impressed by this cart's graphic or sound quality either. If you're a hardcore B-ball fan and picking real NBA players excites you, go for it.


I am seriously getting tired of living in the stone age. Wasn't Pong the first black and white system? Anyway, companies are still wasting valuable programming time and money developing poor Game Boy titles. This is a good game, but it would earn at least two more rating points it was in color. Sorry; it's sad, but true.
