  1. Forget the strive for realism, FIFA Street 2 is a pure unadulterated videogame take on footie. It's fun, fun, fun throughout the game and there's a surprisingly deep single-player experience to sustain your interest.
  2. It's not perfect, but it's chockfilled with entertaining gameplay modes. If FIFA 06 is fine cuisine, FIFA Street 2 is a corndog and a coke and sometimes, there ain't nothing better than that.
  3. FIFA Street 2 is a significant improvement over its predecessor and is fun for solo players and small groups of friends alike.
  4. Defending against tricks can be like a clumsy piece of physical comedy. When you aren't paralyzed, you fall flat on your face.
  5. AceGamez
    It's not a bad game, but casual gamers, and possibly hardcore-traditional-football fans, may get bored of pulling tricks rather than pulling skilled corners back on the real pitch.
  6. Nintendo Power
    More finese than bravado, soccer is a subtle subject for an outrageous Street title, but the second game in EA's "FIFA Street" series justifies its over-the-top treatment with more tricks and fireworks than the original. [May 2006, p.87]
  7. I have to say I am vastly disappointed once again. The game is a bit better than the original FIFA Street, but still not as good as I thought it would be.
  8. Fans of the series will love the additional features, but newcomers may be footing it off in favor of something more their speed.
  9. The slight improvements on defense and better looking character models just aren't enough to turn this game into a winner and one can't help but feel that more time should have been taken to develop the game.
  10. NGC Magazine UK
    Tilted too far into fantasy, FIFA has become as unbalanced as Didier Drogba on ice. [Apr 2006, p.48]

    It's not a crap title. However, the sport of soccer doesn't translate as well as basketball to this arcade style of play. The fun factor isn't as high. This is partially due to the over-emphasis on tricks, which remove the actual game of soccer, and it's also due to the game's mechanics.
  12. Game Informer
    What this franchise did to deserve a sequel I really don't know. [Apr 2006, p.118]

    The artificial intelligence is improved and ball physics are much more realistic than in the first game, but while FIFA Street 2 makes a good first impression, it gets bogged down by unresponsive player controls and repetitive action.
  14. The best way to describe FIFA Street 2 is ordinary. While the game is not necessarily terrible, it is nowhere near fantastic.
  15. It's bland, boring, and frustrating--and once that kicks in, the only thing that will keep anyone playing is sheer tenacity.
  16. Even after a sequel, this Street still falls flat on its asphalt.
