Nick D's Review Of Arch-Rivals
The thing you have to remember when playing this game or thinking about playing this game is it is NOT a traditional basketball game. Sure, the basic elements are there, but this game throws all logic out the window by allowing you to punch your opponents in order to take the ball. Later in the game, there are also drinks on the floor to slip up your players, as well as the small ref who can easily get in the way. I was always a big fan of this game, for how unconventional it is, except for the long scenes at halftime or after periods with that creepy looking sportscaster. I do feel it is still one of the more underrated games on the NES.
