Dream Team: 3 on 3 Challenge is a good sports game made by Data East. It is very similar to Jordan vs. Bird (made by Electronic Arts). At the beginning there's a menu for setting up the video card, controls and sound (internal speaker). Don't expect very much. You can create a team with one, two or three men and then you will have to choose beween three modes: practice, demonstration or tournament.
You can play this game with the keyboard or the keypad and the player's controls are very generic. The method to control the ball is a little bit intuitive. Just like the name says, the game is a simulation of a 3-on-3 Basketball game, which is played on half of a normal basketball court. It's different from other sports games made by Data East because it offers many strategic options that should please the fans of this genre. It also includes a playbook, full player statistics, and the rules of the real game (for example, in the street game mode of 3-on-3 basketball the time of each quarter is 20 minutes).
In Dream Team: 3 on 3 Challenge you can move, pass, shoot the ball and control the power with ease. You can play it alone or with a friend as the game also offers a "team-mates" mode, in which two players can play in the same team against the computer or play one against the other.
Overall, Dream Team is a very enjoyable game. It may not have the atmosphere of a live match, but it is a great choice for anyone looking for a game to spend some free time, and because it's so funny and relaxing, I give it 4 stars.
Another solid action sport game from Data East, Dream Team: 3 on 3 Challenge plays like a good remake of Electronic Arts' Jordan vs. Bird, except that the players you control are more generic, and the control method a little more intuitive. As the title implies, the game is a simulation of 3-on-3 basketball game, which is played on half the normal basketball court. You can compete in an exhibition game, or up to 8 players can join a tournament (which is really just a sequence of 8 consecutive games). Instead of being a pure action sport game like Data East's earlier Monday Night Football, Dream Team offers several strategic options that should please diehard fans, including a playbook, full player statistics, and rule choices e.g. standard rules vs. 3-on-3 rules, the length of each quarter, freepass view, and so on.
Data East's hallmark of excellent controls in its console games is evident here, as you can move, pass, and shoot the ball at varying power with ease. The game even offers a two-player "teammates" mode, where two players can play in the same team against the computer. Overall, Dream Team is a very enjoyable game. It may not match TV Sports Basketball in terms of capturing the atmosphere of a live match, but it is a great choice for anyone looking for a quickie.
