Shoot some hoops
The legendary basketball player Magic Johnson has lent his name to a handful of games over the years, with Fast Break and Super Slam Dunk alongside this one (which is also known as Omni-Play Basketball). None of them are exactly classic examples of the sporting genre, but they're all decent enough with this one especially providing some fun and fast-paced action. There are two main modes of gameplay on offer here, with one offering a pretty detailed and complete league-style game, and which can be played by one or two humans (with the latter generally providing the best way to enjoy things). The second mode is perhaps better when you're in the mood for some faster shooting fun as it makes use of an alternate movement and shooting system which is designed to maximize the game's pace. There's a fairly extensive range of options which can be tweaked to suit your preferences, such as match length, kit colors and skill level, while there are also some quite detailed historical stats if you're into that sort of thing. On the whole, this is a solid if unspectacular basketball sim. The league mode is quite compelling and it's satisfying to watch your team move up the ranks, while the range of moves on offer in both modes is quite wide and which makes for an enjoyable take on the sport. The controls are flexible and intuitive and you should be able to pick things up and start slam dunking pretty quickly but they're never so easy that it doesn't feel challenging. If you are looking for a change from NBA Live or NBA Jam, by all means take a look here but don't expect to have your world set on fire.
