    Nba street is a very cool and fantesyfull game. I bought it The first day it came out. I think that nba street v3 is more real than the 2 and 1. Street v3 is the closest you come near street basketball today! Maybee Gambreakers is a little to much og flying players but else al the other stuff exsist in the real world.

  1. The additions that have been made to streamline the control and beef up the single player experience are simply the best improvements that could have been made without totally reinventing the series (which, frankly, no one does for sequels anymore). The game can be repetitive, but the feeling may be inevitable for hardened veterans of the streetball circuit.

    A truly remarkable game - not just the best basketball game ever, but also one of the best games around at the moment full stop.
  3. The pinnacle of virtual basketball.
