Michael Jordan in Flight
DOS - 1993
Description of Michael Jordan in Flight
Michael Jordan in Flight is a neat basketball game, one of the first to use digitized video footage of players, although the results are not very effective. It was also one of the first games published under Electronic Arts' EA Sports label and a nice set-up to EA's later NBA games series.
Despite starring basketball legend himself as well as a good 3D-bitmap-mix graphics engine with SVGA support (sadly just for a few older video cards), the game simply isn't that fun to play, and replay value is minimal. It offers 3-on-3 matches and tournaments and only supports mouse and joystick controls - no keyboard. Aside from Jordan himself, other players look very much alike, and the controls are not user-friendly.
The best features of the game are probably multiple camera angles and the ability to create your own highlight films with "Video-Edit Lab" feature. Other than the novelty and star power, the game has very little else to offer. Fun for a while if you're a Jordan fan or want to see how (awful) digitized video would look in a basketball game.
If you really want to play a good basketball game, better stick to EA's earlier classics One on One or Lakers vs. Celtics.

It was pretty impressive for it's time. It wasn't the best gameplay but the 3D cameras and graphics were pretty amazing at that time. I remember being really impressed by much more realistic it was than other sports games lol. It gave you a peak at the 3D basketball games that would be made years later. Back then it was like getting a taste of virtual reality which was a brand new concept back then.
