One of the first games by master sports game designer Ed Ringler, GFL Championship Basketball is a fun arcade-style basketball game that is notable for being one of the first sports games of any kind that offers full tournament mode. Player statistics are minimal, probably due to hardware limitations of the era, but animations of the players are smooth and the control method is excellent (both joystick and keyboard are supported). Although it is still primitive, the game is definitelly more playable than, say, Epyx' more popular Street Sports Basketball. Definitely a good start for Gamestar/ Ed Ringler, and well worth a look, if for nothing other than pure, 100% nostalgia :)
