NBA JAM by EA SPORTS™ App Tips, Tricks and Rules



Best game ever  kkscriv  5 star

I played this and I said best game ever!!!!


Concern  steve3014  3 star

Why isn’t Scottie Pippen in game anymore?


UPDATE ROSTERS  noahcooking12  5 star

I love this game, the controls for it are amazing and so are the graphics. My only problem is the rosters. They last time EA touched this game was in 2014, cause these rosters are old! Lebron and Kyrie are on the Cavs, KD is on the Thunder, and many notable players are on their former teams. Many current stars in today’s NBA like Giannis and Joel Embiid are also not in this game, so an update would give us a chance to add even more players to the game and hey, might even add more historical players like Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain, etc. PLEASE LISTEN EA!


Where did they go? Under rated players!  Argenbr  1 star

I had played and unlocked every thing that could be unlocked. Deleted the game for a while then re-downloaded it because I was ready to JAM again only to find that with the new update there were players removed. Well at least one. Where did Scottie Pippen go? There was nothing like playing the game with the 96 bulls with Pippen and Rodman, but now it's gone. What a shame😞 If that wasn't enough I looked at Kawhi Leonard and his abilities in the game don't match up to his true abilities. It's time for a new update!!! I understand that players move a A LOT more now a days which makes it difficult to keep decent rosters in the game, but put forth some effort!!!


Love love love this game  too_cool15  5 star

I used to play NBA jam all the time when it first came out. I'd like to see teams updated possibly every year


fun but needs updates  ja17272620  4 star

its a good game it just needs an update to players and pictures it would be cool if it was updated to match the rosters on current teams or even have players stats updated a bit

Crashing every time  Kadyn H.  1 star

Every time I am in the lead my game crashes.


Great game  Sniperallday828  4 star

Fun way to kill time but the game should be updated regularly with new rosters.


Reborn! Wait.... you’re missing something vital!  Sonquizzon  4 star

I have been playing the heck out of this game since it’s been updated but I can’t find any way to get the Beastie Boys! Where are the Beastie Boys? I want the Beastie Boys! I’ll give another star if you update it with the Beastie Boys! Hello? Anyone? Developer? B-Boys? Fight for your right to play the B-Boys!


Needs two things  globulotus  3 star

I’d love an iPad version and mfi controller support.


Update Rosters Please  nemospl2  2 star

I see y'all updated the app but the rosters are still 2-3 yrs outdated... Seriously?!


Losing an opportunity  Scooby_72  1 star

EA is losing an opportunity to have a good game in the App Store. UNTIL YOU UPDATE THE ROSTERS this game is trash. Will not sure what they are updating if it’s not the rosters. DELETED until rosters are addressed.


DO NOT GET!!!  JAX5496  1 star

As a kid growing up, I absolutely LOVED this game, so once I saw it as an app, I immediately downloaded it. The initial setup was quick, easy to understand, & fun. The first game I played was nostalgic & brought me back to the late nights, going into the early mornings, of playing JAM with my best friend as a kid. However, the second game is when things got annoying. I played the second game at least 5 different times, in different locations just to make sure it wasn’t my internet connection(s) which it wasn’t, & I kept getting kicked out in the late 3rd Quarter or early 4th. It’s highly frustrating & annoying! I’m glad that I didn’t spend any money on this game, because I almost did. If the developers will fix that issue, I’ll come back & give the game 5 stars with a glowing review. Until then, it’s 1 star (simply because I can’t give it a 0 &/or negative rating) & I’ll tell people not to waste their time on this game.


Can someone explain to me why...  Dubs1  1 star

This game was never made ‘Universal’ so I can play on my iPad as well? Devs stopped making two separate apps for iPhone/itouch and iPad loooong ago. Of course greedy EA refuses to get in line with the rest of the market.


Bug reporting is not easy for this game  WarEagle82  4 star

I hate to put this out there for the whole world to see, but I navigated around your website way too long to report a simple bug. The bug is this: while playing the classic campaign, the announcer referred to either Javale McGee or Danilo Gallinari (Denver Nuggets) as “Tyreke Evans” during a shot and a rebound.


Rosters not updated but...  MN95345  3 star

Having been an IT developer, my feeling is without rewriting the entire app, they can't update the rosters in its current setup. So instead, they just tweak the experience so it's fantastic. Sad but I bet that's the issue and why nobody has done anything about it in 5 years.


Ea is horrible  Zacklord22  1 star

Of course another ea game ruined my dynamic difficulty adjustment



UPDATE PLEASE!! Let me play the game with Mfi controller!


Update Rosters!!!!!  Mcd19  1 star

Great game but the rosters have not been updated in years. 5 stars if the game was updated.


Please update the rosters  MrMosley  1 star

Update the rosters. You tweak the game but do nothing with the content. Please update the rosters.
