The Jordan Challenge has anachronisms.

First things first: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anachronism

Even big gaming companies make mistakes in the easiest things. In this case, the Jordan Challenge. It has several anachronisms in the commentary of games.

1. Let's start with the most obvious one right at the game intro:



Can you spot the mistake? Yes. A 1996 Jordan being challenged by a 1992/1993 Craig Ehlo.

2. The 1991 Finals Challenge VS the Lakers. Jordan is mentioned to be in his 6th year, when in reality he was in his 7th year in the league.

3. The shootout VS Wilkins in 1990. Commentators mention the slam dunk contest where Jordan and Wilkins battled in the final round of "last years slam dunk contest". It was to seasons ago in 1988, not 1989.

4. Finally, probably the most noticeable mistake. The 69 point Challenge VS the Cavs in 1990. When the commentators mention "The shot" that knocked out the Cavs from the playoffs, they mention "...from two years ago". It happened during last year's playoffs (1989).

Anyway...just some nit picking for your pleasure.

The most obvious ones, to me, would be: computers at the 80's 90's games. The music in the areans and the logos on the court during playoffs/finals.

Those too Kyoto, you're right. Don't forget about jumbotron animations and the early 90's Bulls with long baggy shorts and no old school Benny the Bull

Anyway...
