  1. With a meaty single player mode and a fluid gameplay model, FIFA Street 3 for the DS is a surprisingly competent package.
  2. The truly unfortunate thing about FIFA Street 3 is the shallow Street Challenge because the play mechanics work fairly well and the game can be fun. It is just aggravating to do pointless challenge after challenge after challenge.
  3. While certainly an improvement over the previous game, FIFA Street 3 is too easy and too repetitive to have lasting appeal.
  4. However, the title comes up short in every department or ignores them completely.
  5. The FIFA Street idea has potential but unfortunately the execution is disappointingly sloppy. If you desire soccer entertainment on your DS, we recommend you stay off the streets and pick the standard-issue FIFA instead.
  6. This offers some very poor football action with frustrating, nonsensical gameplay and awful visuals. [May 2008, p.94]
  7. Innovation isn't a guarantee of quality, and in this case controls are inaccurate and badly designed. Fun rapidly trades places with frustration, there are much better proposals on the DS.

    From the little I have played, this game seems like a true gem. The emphasis on tricks and team chemistry is interesting and makes you feel the urge to pass more and 'be nice' to all your players. It is clear the developers have worked hard on the controls; you can choose to use the stylus or not, but I would recommend using it as it works very well. Also the graphics are impressive and the gameplay smooth and well designed. I want to keep playing it but my battery is dead. Thats why I'm writing this review. Expand
