Two of the greatest icons of the Golden Age of the NBA match up in this game. On one side, the spectacular dunks of Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls; on the other, Larry Bird's incredible accuracy from the outside.
While Bird feels right home at the three-point contest, where five racks with five balls each are placed around the three-point arc and the player must pick each ball and throw in the the best timing possible to get as many points as possible during the 60 second window, only Jordan has the air-time to perform on the slam dunk contest, where the player has a number of dunks at his disposal, each requiring different timing to get the best score from all three attempts from the judges, and win the competition.
While they are two completely different players, they can still go one-on-one on a half-court match, played to points or with a time duration. Can Bird's stealing and outside shooting ability be a match to Jordan's speed and jumping abilities?
Well, the game isn't bad, but the controls... uh-oh! Make sure you don't have to rely on the keyboard when you want to play this. The game itself is a pretty simple one on one between 2 basketball-legends - Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. It's not THAT important whether you know about them or not (though I'd seriously doubt your interest in basketball if those names don't sound familiar to you ;) ). The graphics are pretty minimalistic but should be enough. I recommend you play this against a friend - I'm sure that's pretty enjoyable, otherwise - for fans only.
I remember playing this game when I was in year 3, I use to always play my friend, and beat him every time :). Michael Jordan faces off against Larry Bird in a one-on-one challenge! You can play against the computer or another player. We all know that Bird would win in a real game, but it is fun to simulate this scenario nonetheless. Some of the events included in this game are 1 on 1 games, Slam Dunk contest, Follow the Leader, and a 3 Point shoot-out.
Follow-up to One on One from 1983. Another basketball game based on the televised "one-on-one" basketball exhibitions of the 60's, this time featuring Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. This time, EA adds EGA graphics to the original gameplay as well as additional play-modes such as 3-point contest and slam dunk contest. A great game in every respect, although it doesn't have quite the same charm as its CGA predecessor... probably because it's no longer pioneering the new genre ;) Still a must-play for every basketball fan, though.
