NBA Playgrounds PS4 Demo


This is a bit of a mix between NBA Jam & Street.

Not sure if it’s just me but the controls seem very loose. In the games I played there were a ton of missed dunks and layups. That seemed like the least NBA Jam thing about the game. Most of my games were competitive but the winning team usually only score 25-30 points. Rebounding is also difficult. Many times me or my opponent would get 5 or 6 offensive rebounds in a row.

The player leveling and card packs seem intriguing but the presentation of the XP gains and losses looked second rate.

The demo actually turned me off from wanting to purchase the game. There should’ve been a basic tutorial included to get you familiar with mechanics rather than having to wait 5 minutes between matches to learn the mechanics during a live game.

Anyone check this out yet?
