Lag, lag, lag on high stakes 1/5
By Nick Norvilas
Ever notice how everytime you are in a game that is $500k plus the lag licks in and you lose. The update hasn't fixed the block issues either. I would love to play this game more but the app developers are inept.
Correction problems 2/5
By I like to eat pizza and poop
Fix the connection problems I'm in three bars and I have correction problems fix this😡
Fix the connection. 1/5
The lag caused opposition to shoot and score twice my points. Screen saying "connection problems". Such trash. Shouldn't lose money if connection doesn't work. Lost money When no one could score half my points. Then the connection is lost and I just watch him drain shots. Take another week to fix problems before releasing trash. No one can beat me. That's some BS.
Super addicting! 5/5
By Cabooooose RVSB
This is really the only review I have ever made, and that's because this is actually the only game that I go back to play. Super addicting and I don't have problems with lag because I have good wifi, maybe I could suggest more clothes or maybe hoodies or just new clothes in general tbh.
It's started out good. Then the lag comes, I would shoot the ball and make it, next thing you know it says blocked! Y'all need to fix this crap
By Blue tose397
Not fun to play with lags and glitches. Took my money without me even playing..
Love❤️Hate 💔 4/5
This game is awesome when it comes down to content,but the constant lagging and the not so lucky lucky balls really drive me insane. Why is that when I shoot a perfect shot my ball is blocked half way to the basket it's impossible to due so. I lose lots of money which makes it impossible to buy the better balls and clothing.If you guys can fix those things and make the prices to buy balls and clothing cheaper this games would be even better than it already is.
STOP THE LAG 1/5
every time I shoot the ball, the ball is passed my opponent and he gets a late jump but then it says he blocked it. Also it gives the opponent four or five blue balls and only gives me one b
WORST GAME LAGE/RIPOFF EVER!! 💀 1/5
You think your good at this game but then once you have a lot of money magically you start having connection problems. Like really it didn't do that to me the whole time until now. But funny thing is that I have perfect wifi, better and higher quality games don't even have connection problems and not even close!!! Just a dumb ripoff game.
Great game 5/5
Fun game. Needs more levels, though.
Game is Bad 1/5
Lag ruins the game i try to shoot I get blocked even though the other guy is 15 feet away from me. Its stupid and ruins the game
By Big Luis C
This is an update to a prior review I made.
I no longer have this app due to the unfairness of the game.
I do not recommend to download for you will only experience the same issues.
By Reniel Bell
Great game!! very much like 8 ball pool, if you love 8 ball pool you will love this basketball stars!👌🏾👌🏾🙌🏿
Nice stuff, clean time killer... 😬
Good idea needs to be updated 1/5
This game is fun when it works, but there are too many bugs.
Fun, but needs work 3/5
Opponents can block shots that r almost in the net. Pretty bad lag at times. Another issue is when ur on offense, sometimes ur opponent can keep stealing the ball and you can't do anything about it.
It's a great game, but there needs to be more ways to obtain gold. Also, there needs to be a game mode in the middle of the 15k and 80k. Too big of a jump. Really fun though
By AL DEWAHE
Connectivity issues 3/5
The game costs you a lot of in-game money because it has a hard time connecting a lot. Super fun when it's working though.
Much needed updates 3/5
By Chrischin Chin
The game is great overall but does require a few things to be added. It comes off sexist to not include the option of choosing a female as your player. Males aren't the only ones to play the game of basketball or this game. It would be more appealing to also have an actual countdown clock when shooting or even a hour glass. Lastly, the clothes selections are weak. It's 2016, not the 90's. Thanks! 😉
The cheating needs to stop 3/5
Would be 5 stars if I didn't cheat. I blocked 2 shots in a row and the other dude got points and the ball back. And they block your shot when the ball is almost halfway to the goal. Fun game, aggravating because of the lags.
Great fun 4/5
I can't stop playing...until I run out of money!!
Challenging and very fun ADDICTIVE
New update made game slower 3/5
This game is really amazing and addicting. Ever since the new update my iPhone 6 had had a hard time it freezes on gameplay and the other opponent makes baskets faster. Also the "defending mode" is really glitchy. If you want to make a successful app you will listen to this review. I'm actually gonna leave 3 stars instead of 1 cause I care about your success. Good Luck and congrats.
Good game 4/5
It's a good fun game not like other games that's just the ball and a basket . Only thing it's missing unlike their other games 8 ball pool and the soccer game is the option to add and play friends . Other than that great game lol
Glitches no matter what 1/5
It's frustrating because whenever and wherever I go it glitches and the other player gets points and I lose money ( in the game) I would not recommend getting the game
Fun game but one major problem 3/5
This game is really fun and pretty addictive but the one thing that pisses me off is the lucky ball, it either needs to come every so many shots for each person or it needs to be gotten rid of because I've played 6 games with a 250k buy in and was winning by a lot then lost because the opponent go 4-6 lucky balls and I got 0 in each of those matches and it pisses me off hard core, it needs fixed asap
Dead serious 5/5
Rather play this than 2k16 on console
Needs fixes 1/5
Lag can ruin most games and lucky ball is completely random and utterly ruins the balance of the game. Had a a guy beat me from 14-0 to 14-18 because he got 3 lucky balls in a row.
cool game 5/5
worth to try
You guys should add more exclusive clothing to the shop every time I open a bag I get the same thing
Great game!! But a few suggestions 4/5
I love this game, and I just got it yesterday. It has multiplayer modes, offline practice, and a lot of customization for your character. The only thing I will say this app can improve on is to add some new modes. You could add a knockout mode where there are 3-8 players and there's no backboard bonuses and stuff like that, and it would just be the knockout game we all know and love. My second suggestion is to add a HORSE / PIG mode and you can play HORSE or PIG with multiple people. Overall, I really like this game but if you don't add new modes, it will get boring and old, so you'll need to add new modes to keep it fresh and alive.
Never works 1/5
This game is fun when it works. When I play a match against someone sometimes they will miss and it will still give them the ball. This game lags so bad that one time I made a 3 pointer and then it said blocked and I removed my game winning point. And in shooting races it won't give me fire balls worth more points and it will give the opponent them in 2 shots. If the lag and glitches in this game were fixed it would earn a 5 star rating from me!!!
This game is v Tite.
Basketball stars 5/5
By Rambler Rebel
It is a great game
At this point, one week into the life of Basketball Stars, I will tell people this:
This game might be enjoyable if you are prepared to sink real life money into it. Miniclip is a business, so it is probable that that is their goal. If you are looking for a free game to be competitive in, I’d point you in a different direction if you are trying to do so without paying an arm and a leg.
As many people have pointed out, the lucky balls somewhat ruin the fun, and that is when we are talking about playing on a level playing field. And just for the record, over this first week of the game’s existence, I have benefited just as much from lucky balls as my opponents, and in both cases it is not fun; some might enjoy beating their opponents by random luck, but my competitive nature doesn’t allow that for me – I feel dirty winning that way. I hope, for those that continue playing the game, that with the amount of people that are unhappy with the lucky ball mechanics, that Miniclip to change the way that system works, hopefully where both players in a given competition will always get an equal opportunity of lucky ball benefits.
The uneven playing field is what will probably retire me from this game. More times than not, now, I am pitted against players with much more powerful basketballs than I have. Why it would be possible for me and my basketball of “basic” accuracy and “basic” time to get pitted against an opponent playing with a basketball with “very high” accuracy and “very high” time, is beyond me. If that happened just once in a while, I’d be OK with that, but it is now happening more times than not, and with that many people out there with top end basketballs, there is no way to compete without dropping $20-$50 on the game.
If you are a basketball fan, a gamer, and you are OK spending money on a game like this (and if the Miniclip business model is like so many others in this business, probably ongoing expenditures if you want to “stay” competitive), than I would say you might want to give the game a try. If you are a competitive person looking for “cheap” fun though, I would immediately hold my hand up in warning.
I hope Miniclip finds a way to level the playing fields, but I am not going to hold my breath.
Too many glitches 1/5
Wayyyy to many glitches in this game. Do not ever purchase anything in this game because you can lose just because the game had a glitch. Would also be a better game if they gave both players the same amount of bonus balls in each game. You can literally go through a game with 0 bonus balls and your opponent might get three or more.
Don't waste your time 1/5
Game is way to laggy and you end up losing half the bets you place becuase of it. This game is useless until they fix the lag
By Animal lover!$
Dis is my fav bball game I own get it!🙀💃🏽🐐🐆🦄
Was a great game at first 1/5
This game started out as a great, entertaining game, but that changed very quickly.. This game cheats a lot and allows your opponent to win every game even when you are making every shot. This game also lags quite often, your ball can be in the hoop and the next thing you know it says blocked and your opponent has the ball and made 30 points to your little 2 point shot.. I loved it at first but as of right now I just uninstalled this b.s. Save yourself the time and don't download.. They also want you to spend a lot of money in order to succeed in this game!
Nice game 5/5
My kid loves this game!
Great graphics and runs fine
Game glitches 1/5
Every single time i block the ball the opponent scores but when i throw the ball they magically block and when i try to take the ball it's worse because i hit the ball but somehow it doesn't say stolen its really frustrating i've lost 3 games in a row with this bug going on it's getting annoying
By blac 600
Great game 5/5
Very nice, graphics are impressive
Best game ever. 5/5
By xFG Sergeant
This is the best game ever it's very addicting it sometimes but does have some issues. Like at the end of the game opponent shoots and you can't that's stupid. Overall it is a very good game.
multiplayer multiplayer multiplayer 4/5
only reason its not getting a full five is because the game need to add a play your friend feature or something like that. a lot of my friends talk a lot of trash
Everybody I play gets lucky balls all the time and I get lucky if I get one, it's infuriating why is there a lucky ball or hot streak in overtime, it makes it so unfair, the dude I just played hit one overtime shot that was a hot zone lucky ball and beat me. Please fix
Needs Girls Avatars 3/5
Why does everybody have to be a guy I don't like that
It is great play 5/5
By Saad i
I'm very happy to play
