NBA Playgrounds isn’t a perfect recreation of the NBA Jam greatness of yesteryear, but it’s a pretty good start. Online play is sorely missed on the Switch, with no clue of how long “a few days” really will wind up being. I also feel like it’s lacking in game modes, though I’m hard-pressed to think of what other modes there could be.

NBA Playgrounds isn’t a bad game, but it isn’t great. The fun it offers is found almost exclusively in either co-op or online. The solo experience is lacking and doesn’t keep your attention for too long. The game has a great look, and plays decently well when the AI isn’t bugging out. What will most likely bog down your time with the game is the repetitiveness. With basically one game mode to play, it’s hard to make each outing feel different and fun.

A hands-off tutorial elbows you right into the action. Its surprisingly steep learning curve can mercilessly trash new players even in their first match, making it difficult to play with friends who might want to pick up the game and start competing. It closely mimics skills and techniques found in real life basketball games, but dirties itself in the details. NBA Playgrounds is great fun when it works and is an absolute blast to play against equally matched opponents, but feels cheap and unrewarding as a solo experience.
