NBA Playgrounds Video Game

Classic NBA arcade action is back! Take your “A” game to the playground and beat the best in high-flying 2-on-2 basketball action. Practice your skills offline, play with up to three others, or take your talents online to posterize your opponents with acrobatic jams and ridiculous displays of skill.

My Son’s Thoughts:

When I first turned on NBA Playgrounds I liked that the art style was really different then other NBA games I had played before. My mom said it was because the games it was modeled after were from before I started playing video games.

I like how you can play the game differently. For example I can dunk from the three point line as many movements are exaggerated. It was fun to see various YouTubers I watch incorporated into the game, it was a nice twist.

The characters were oddly proportioned which of course made the game have a funny twist that made me laugh.

There are 2 single player game modes. One is quick match which is just a simple 2v2 match. The other single player option is a tournament mode where you get to play against a variety of different NBA players to earn packs and players.

Then you have the 2 online options which are a 3 point contest that you can play against other players online.

The last option you have is a quick match. This is the same thing as the single player quick match but against other players online.

If I had to rate the game out of 10 I would give it a 9.5!
