The A.V. Club gave the game an A, saying, "A dazzling array of showmanship, visual glitz, and a hefty dose of fun make this an absolute must-play."[18] The New York Times gave it a favorable review and said that the game "may bear only a passing resemblance to real basketball, but it is tremendous fun, even if you never have to the pass the game controller behind your back or toss it in the air."[24] Detroit Free Press gave it three stars out of four and stated that "the high-flying super dunks, crazy-killer crossovers and behind-the-back, no-look and kick passes are exaggerated to new heights. And here lies one of the game's biggest pluses."[19]
