Update everything and you’ll have all the money. Don’t be dumb

Update rosters

Great game!! Just wish they would update the rosters!! It would be so much better with up to date rosters!

This is still one of the best games out there!

My Only complaint is it does not have a more updated roster. Everything else is made to be simple about it, and that’s why it is great.


We need Michael Jordan.


Ancient rosters, please update them.


How about a roster update ???


Needs a roster update


Please for the love of god update the rosters they’re a century old and that’s the only reason you get three stars and add some different players you can tell the last roster update was forever ago because Lbj and Kyrie have higher 3 point ratings then Stephen curry please just update the rosters who wants to buy a five dollar game and then get old rosters I don’t even think ea sports cares any more about this game!So please give your nba and ea games fans some love and listen to the people!!!

Needs Updated Rosters

This game desperately needs updated rosters. Mostly bc i find myself looking on the wrong team for certain players Example: Looking on the celtics for Kyrie.

Fun gameplay

No bugs glitches or anything and the gameplay is good but doesn’t have updated rosters. Otherwise everything about it is great

Update rosters!

Please update rosters

Good Game But Need an Roster Update

Don’t waste your money. This game needs a major roster update.(Currently 2012-2013 rosters)This is one of the very few games without IAP which is probably why it gets no attention from EA.


I’m fine with the old rosters With “ All Time” Players But I Would Like The New Players Aswell


I wish that you could change the Roster. And add new players. If that happened it would compete with 2k

Could be 5 stars




Needs updating

I redownloaded this game for nostalgia just the other day, and saw that there was a new update. Hopefully this means there will be continuous updates for a while from now on, and I'm hoping that you'll update team rosters and logos to current.

Game break down

Im playing and just take me out of the game i pay for the game and i got tilhis surprise fix it please

Worst Company?**UPDATED**

How about giving this great title to a company that will actually show it the respect it deserves? This game should be the benchmark for the iPhone 5, but no none nada zip updates in forever. Sad. Laggy & embarrassingly outdated rosters make this a current version an "I'll pass". UPDATE … 5 YEARS LATER … Love the new update! Gameplay is impeccable. The wider X screen is better for gameplay because now my thumb doesn't cover as much of the court as it did on my 7+. Graphics are amazing. The screen could fit a little better on the iPhone X though. My review would be 5 stars if the rosters would've been updated. The older rosters do give it a bit more of a retro vibe, I guess.


I’ve had this game since 2013ish, maybe. I grew up on this game. Its a form of nostalgia for me.... HOWEVER the rosters have yet to be updated since somwhere between 2013-2015. They also STILL have yet to add a mode to play as the mascots. I also just received an update two days ago. Im assuming that the only reason there was an update is because the customer still has to be able to play the game without any interruptions. Love the game just expect more i guess.


Update the rosters dude


this game is a waste of money. i’ve had this game, PURCHASED, for about 5-6yrs. ITS STILL the same lineups, wrong players on teams. What bothers me is all the money EA steals from us, they can’t make the rosters updated! This is awful and a disgrace to their company image. DO NOT BUY.

Roster and Player Ratings

I've been playing this game for awhile but still haven't seen the rosters updated to the most current players and given the correct ratings. I was excited to see that there was an update and was hoping to see Durant on the Warriors to finally replace David Lee, BUT STILL NO ROSTER UPDATES. Some teams have players that aren't even in the league anymore, or are completely irrelevant. Also, the player ratings are awful. There are multiple big name players with sub par rating and vice versa. I think I speak for most people when I say the roster and player ratings are long overdue for an update, and make this game less appealing.

NBA Jam Rosters

Can you guys update to current rosters and expand the amount of people we can choose on a team


Will they ever update the players and teams? What’s going on here?


Fantastic game, but update it...


It’s been a year and the latest update still has OLD ROSTERS!!! Players haven’t been on those team in years, why don’t you update the rosters. Once roster is up to date, I will change my score rating a lot higher.


I really like it, that’s why I paid for it, but it pisses me off when the game crashes and mostly by 2nd quarter😠🤦🏽‍♂️

NBA jam

Can y’all update the team 😩like for 2018 we need ankle breaker like on the regular version of nba jam we need a boss battle of 21 💯can y’all place do my wish i be so thankful this one of my favorite games we need where we can play with other play around the world we need a record 2

Why no roster updates

You update the gameplay but you don’t update the rosters. I’ll never understand

Fix iPhone X support + updated rosters

Needs the iPhone X resolution support fixed. It’s cutting off part of the screen. It also BADLY needs updated rosters. Come on EA!

Love it but

U guys update this with slight improvements every year but how about a roster update.ill gladly pay a fee for it

iPhone X ????????

IPhone X update ??????

Doesn’t work

On iPhone X the game crashes every time

Constant crashes

Game is constant crashing. I got to game 3 of the campaign and can’t get past the first 3 minutes of the game. Tried reinstalling, restarting phone, resetting phone, nothing. Lineups are old and not updated... had such high hopes :(

It’s almost just like the classic, which also ticked me off

So it’s cool and all, I can beat teams on the hardest difficulty, beat the campaign, all that, it’s cool, whatever. My problem is the challenges, scoring triple the opponents points.. it seems like first two quarters, you can hit almost anything, easily juke or just run around the guy guarding you, I usually go up to like a 45-6 lead at halftime.. but apparently, all teams have the warriors 3rd quarter drive, and block anything I throw up (even when I knock them down right before shooting), always connects on their shoves, and will get every steal they go for, whereas I magically can’t steal anymore, and can’t block, because after halftime, all they do is dunk the ball... so 45-6 lead at half turns into a 55-20 lead at end of 3rd, which makes triple score harder.. then of course, magically, 4th quarter, same thing.. steals blocks shoves for them, nothing for me, ends up being like 65-35.. not even double..


You guys should update the roster again :)


THE CONTROLS NEED TO BE FIXED!!!!! I hate when I’m playing and all of the sudden instead of shooting I’m passing and when I try to block the shot I try to steal the ball from the guy this is ridiculous and annoying and really needs to be fixed I really wish I wouldn’t have spent money on this game. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!!

Love the game, but keeps crashing

I’ve been playing this game since way back in the day. I love it soooo much but it constantly crashes after about 2 mins playing. I have the iPhone X before that I had the 5c and it never crashed.


Need to update keeps crashing

Great Game but...

I love the game I give it five stars money well spent but I’m actually bugged on how old the rosters are. I mean I’m a philly guy and Philadelphia 76ers have Iverson and Dr. J I love the style but the rosters are so old. The only roster sort of up to date is Cavs with Kyrie and LeBron but Kyrie is not on cavs anymore. Like the rosters are so so so old. I saw some guy complaining about mascots but those are really good btw. Also the Lakers have KOBE BRYANT in this game. Kobe is retired boy. I love the game a lot I play it nonstop but the rosters always bug me. (Also why does the game have Shaq?)

Needs a update

It’s been almost a year since the last update and they need to optimize the app for the iPhone X and update the rosters as well


Plays 1 quarter than the second quarter it crashes. iPhoneX.

Game crashes

I can’t even make it past the first quarter without it crashing. Horrible for iPhone X update the rosters.

Problema iPhone X

En algunos momentos se cierra la aplicación

Must update

How about updating the players / teams? I use to love this game growing up and also when it came out on iOS but would be nice to play with updated rosters, that’s all it needs to begin o be a good game again

Updated roster!!

Updated roster 100%


This game just crashes all the time

App does not work correctly.

You can start the app but at some point while you are playing the app quits working and it will exit.

Keeps crashing

Hasn’t been updated in a year. Just keeps crashing as soon as you start playing on IPhone X. Please update
