Michael Jordan in Flight is a 1993 computer basketball game for DOS. It was developed by and published by Electronic Arts and is endorsed by Michael Jordan although it has no NBA licensed players or teams.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

The game featured a three-a-side basketball match. The camera is a 3D camera, and the game includes some filmed scenes of Michael Jordan. The game is developed in a court surrounded by nothing (even with no crowd the player can hear clapping sometimes).[2]

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World praised the "incredible ... 3D-based graphic engine" as being "so far ahead of everyone else", but criticized Michael Jordan in Flight as being too easy because "the product is based on Michael Jordan. Jordan is too good overall". The magazine concluded that it "is the most visually realistic sports software on the market ... Now, they need to apply the technology to a game".[3]
