Bulls vs. Lakers and the NBA Playoffs (Sega Genesis, 1992)

  • $900


While the NBA's regular season gives players an opportunity to show what they can do, it's in the Playoffs where the champs are separated from the chumps. Now, thanks to BULLS VS. LAKERS AND THE NBA PLAYOFFS, you can have a hand in who goes home with the championship and who goes home empty-handed. You can play as any of the teams from the 1991 NBA Playoffs and see if you've got what it takes to bring home the hardware. Take advantage of Hardaway's cross-over dribble, Bird's three-point accuracy, or Jordan's all-around clutch play as you try to lead your team to the NBA's Promised Land. If you aren't feeling the competitive juices, play a friendly All-Star game where the East takes on the West, and the defense is secondary to putting on a good show.

Bulls vs Lakers and the NBA Playoffs is a basketball video game developed by Electronic Arts and released in 1992 exclusively for the Sega Mega Drive. The game is the sequel to Lakers versus Celtics. The game's name refers to the previous season's NBA championship series, the 1991 NBA Finals matchup between the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers. It is the second game in the NBA Playoffs series of games.

Although there is no SNES version for Bulls vs Lakers, the SNES (and first) version of Bulls vs. Blazers was heavily based on Bulls vs Lakers, with the later Mega Drive version introducing a few changes from this.

Bulls vs Lakers introduced a television broadcast-style presentation with a fictional television network, "EASN", the Electronic Arts Sports Network. It was the first team basketball game to feature an in-game instant replay feature. Bing Gordon, the Chief Creative Officer of Electronic Arts, was featured as the game announcer. This was also the first game to depict NBA team logos on the courts.

The game can be played in various ways: players could play against each other, or against the computer. Games against the computer were divided into two modes, "Exhibition" or "Playoffs". Players could pick from one of the 16 teams that competed in the 1991 NBA Playoffs. Rosters featured many top NBA stars of the time, including Michael Jordan. Games could be configured for 2, 5, 8 or 12 minute quarters. New to the series is a star underneath the player to let users easily know which player they are controlling. MegaTech said that the game had impressive graphics and atmosphere, but that it did not play as fast as David Robinson's Supreme Court.
