Review by Tom Allen
1 Star out of 4

NBA Jam 2001 for Game Boy Color is a straightforward freestyle basketball experience that is fairly fun for a few minutes or so.

Complete with signature moves of key NBA players and once-in-a-blue-moon color commentary (limited to spectacular dunking moments), this title does its best to avoid boredom. However, stealing is too hard, and making a basket is way too easy. At first, I thought these were bad qualities. Now, I think it's the only way this title could be the slightest bit fun. Otherwise, players would be instantly frustrated and would not devote the same amount of patience that would normally be accorded to a PlayStation, Dreamcast, or Nintendo 64 title.

The graphics and sound are decent enough for the system, but I'm not convinced that players are eager enough to take basketball on the road when it means sacrificing the level of quality that the home consoles offer.
