  • Summary: The third installment of NBA Street advances the series by adding more customization, different game modes, and new gameplay features. Now you can build both your reputation and show-stopping Gamebreakers on the streets by performing all-new flashy dunks, dribble tricks, and combos. Step into the shoes of NBA legends, current basketball stars, and original characters from previous games. Play in familiar courts, such as The Cage and Rucker Park, or create your own court from the ground up. NBA Street V3 also features a new dunk contest and online multiplayer modes. Collapse

  1. For V3, the player models have photorealistic heads and faces - you can actually see facial details and markings. The development team even incorporated cloth animations. [Feb 2005, p.75]

    From bouncing the ball off your opponent's noggin to draining a game-winning three, there is just so much opportunity to talk smack, to compete, and best of all, humiliate your friends by dunking on their heads, that I think this is a must-buy for gamers looking for a fun basketball game without having to worry about the differences between a Triangle and a Box formation.
  3. It has the looks, it has the thrills and holds an undeniable charm. If you're sick of not flying 1100 feet in the air and feel embarrassing posers who bring it weak to your home court, pick this one up.
  4. The stick is a more intuitive type of control system, which can only benefit to the flow of the game. It improves the possibilities of your character considerably.
  5. The right stick controls also take a lot of the learning curve out of Street that made the first ones so hard to learn.
  6. This game not only has an incredible control scheme, but it has so many extras that you probably won't even have to update until V5. Whichever way you look at it, NBA Street V3 is the new pinnacle of the NBA games and is much more fun than any other basketball game in existence--including "NBA Jam."
  7. After a couple of games in NBA Street V3, you may well be ready to hit the showers. Unless you're hardcore about basketball, it's hard to imagine that you'll feel much different.

    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. Expand
