  • Summary: Freestyle Street Soccer focuses on 10 individual gangs--all based on the different styles, fashions, and cultures found in the concrete jungle. These teams fiercely compete for each other's turf with the ultimate goal to gain control of the whole city. You'll join the battle as one of 40 players with individual catchphrases, plus trick, combo, and special moves. As you conquer the challenges in five game modes, remember--on the streets, it's just as important to look cool as it is to score goals. Expand

  1. Whilst not presenting massive depth, should keep most gamers happy with something different until the next bout of heavily licensed footy games hit the shelves.
  2. Football purist may not be interested, but if you like over the top arcade sport sims in the tradition of "NBA Jam" and "NHL Hitz," this is an excellent choice to satisfy your football needs during the winter.
  3. An unusual mix of soccer and street culture. [Apr 2004, p.122]
  4. 45
    The single player is more a trial of frustration than anything else. Players don't behave the way they should. Ball physics are ridiculous. The whole gang turf war theme is absurd.
  5. It's yet another example of a distinctly average "extreme sports" game that lacks the polish and creativity of the real-life sportsmen it's trying to emulate-slash-harness.
  6. Passing and shooting in these high-scoring battles is as easy as squeezing the trigger on an Uzi, but complicated button-mashing for trick moves, muddy graphics, and a schizophrenic soundtrack of Method Man, TLC, and Foo Fighters all draw red cards.
  7. If you want the tricks buy Tony Hawk's and if you want to play something that has a semblance of recognisable football skill you'd be well advised to leave this game on the bench.
