Backyard Basketball is the fun new game that puts
kids together with their favorite pro basketball players for real
b-ball action in the backyard!
Shoot hoops with junior versions of famous NBA and
WNBA stars. Action-packed gameplay brings backyard competition to
life with 3-D-rendered graphics, high-resolution sound effects,
and easy-to-learn controls. Full-court action and multiplayer
mode means kids can play for hours with their favorite hoopsters
and friends. The game features full-court play, complete with
free throws, dunks, and power-ups for wacky plays. Choose a name,
face, and skill level with the Create-A-Player function.

Infogrames scores another big one with
this terrific, easy-to-play basketball simulation designed
especially for kids. As in more sophisticated sims, players pick
teams and game options, only in this case, players choose kid
characters to fill out the roster. Each kid has a unique
personality and set of skills. "Pint-sized" versions of a few pro
players like Lisa Leslie and Kevin Garnett are thrown into the
mix, adding an element of humor to the game, as kids meet and
play with these little future superstars. What we like most about
the program are its many options that give children control over
the experience. Players can design team uniforms, create custom
teams and can determine who to play against. They select each
character's position as well as when and where to bounce the
ball. Just like the real thing, the game takes practice, but it's
thoroughly engaging and downright addictive. Flaws are few. The
save features are limited, permitting only season games to be
saved, but the other features are plentiful allowing children to
control background sounds and play-by-plays. Also, the program
requires some reading at first, until players have the navigation
system memorized. All in all, though, this is a great program for
many reasons. The software is one of the few that breaks
stereotypes by putting boys and girls from all ethnic groups on
the roster, some of whom are physically challenged. It gives kids
unusual control over the action and is exceptionally easy to
figure out. -- From Children's Software Revue® -- "Subscribe
