Much like Hollywood and their need to remake every single ‘classic’ movie within the last two decades, the gaming industry follows a somewhat similar route by re-releasing titles that not only defined a genre but cemented itself as a classic in the gaming industry.

With Halo reaching the 10 year mark since being released, Microsoft/343 Studios has released Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition both in its classic Xbox graphical and revamped Halo Reach graphical glory, allowing gamers old and new to experience a console-defining shooter.

Rockstar however, instead of releasing a game that was already available across every platform, has decided to go the route of releasing GTAIII on mobile and tablets (Check out Rockstars official supported devices website to see if your device made the cut).

This allows an already amazing company to allow people who wouldn’t own a console to experience a game that has been a staple in the open sandbox genre.

But does it translate well enough to smartphones/tablets?

OXCGN’s NBA Jam iPhone 4 Review


OXCGN’s iPhone 4 NBA Jam Review

We brought the peanut butter &… EA definitely brought the JAM!

It’s been a long time coming but NBA Jam for your iPhone is finally here!

Now I know I’m only 20 years old but I have had the privilege of experiencing NBA Jam Tournament edition on a good old fashioned arcade machine courtesy of my TAFE here in North Sydney.

I can safely say that many hours both during and outside of class time were spent in the gaming dungeon slamming away the competition.

When I heard that NBA Jam was being released for consoles with updated graphics and using the current roster of NBA athletes, I was very excited.

And better yet now that it’s been released for the iPhone 4, anytime and anywhere I can sit down and get my boomshakala happening while negotiating the urban sprawl we call Sydney on the various modes of public transport.

Lots of hoops and slamming fun . . .
