Review Basketball Stars

Brandon Girod
8.7Excellent
Realistic graphics, fun gameplay
Defense is always at a disadvantage, the game is too multiplayer focused, sometimes the controls don’t feel 100% responsive
Any time I have to play a game with a sports theme, I’m usually not ecstatic to do so. Sports just aren’t my thing. But I’m also always really happy when I find a sports game that defies all odds and I find myself having a great time with it. Basketball Stars for Android is a game like that.
It’s a semi-arcade like game featuring one-on-one basketball games where you’re playing against a human player. So, each match plays out in two phases. If you’re shooting the ball then the idea is that you want to try and fake out your opponent so you get a clear shot, but you also need to make sure you swipe up the right distance so you actually make the shot. Fortunately, there is no aiming here. You can do this by swiping down to perform a fake shot or try and juke out your opponent.
If you miss or you’re on defense right off the bat then your job is to make sure your opponent misses a shot so you can get the ball. You can do this by stealing the ball or simply blocking their shot. On this end, I feel like the player on defense kind of has the odds stacked against them because it’s really difficult to tell when you’re about to get juked out.
Winning gets you access to a bunch of cosmetic things that allow you to customize the way your character looks so not every player has to look the exact same.
Despite it being a basketball game, I think Basketball Stars is a really fun multiplayer that brings a lot to the table in terms of multiplayer gameplay on mobile platforms.
