    Jordan vs. Bird: One-on-One (or sometimes just Jordan vs. Bird) is a 1988 basketball sim featuring two famous NBA players, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan, as they attempt to outscore one another on the court. It is based on the older computer game One-on-One, which featured Dr. J and Larry Bird.

    Jordan vs. Bird: One-on-One not only offers a one-on-one basketball game with the two featured players, but also allows the player to use Larry Bird in a 3-point shooting contest, and Michael Jordan in a slam dunk contest where the player can choose the type of dunk they wish to perform.

    The Genesis version includes an animated cutscene when a slamdunk is performed. It also includes a two player local competitive mode.

    Critical Reception

    When the Genesis version was released Electronic Gaming Monthly issued the following scores, 6,7,7,7 adding, "...It gets a little boring and a little too easy, but it is pretty fun".
