  1. A good enough game, though barely anything has changed. It doesn't feel like it has been rushed, since it isn't buggy or broken in any way, but there's definitely a lack of proper maturation here that hinders the overall product.
  2. Just like they did with "Def Jam: Fight for NY," EA Big ignored NFL Street's fundamental issues and instead added more flash and one or two new moves. While undeniably fun, EA Big has no right to call NFL Street 2 a sequel.

    A great game to play with friends online or off, but here's hoping the next iteration gives us more to do with the D.
  4. Nintendo Power
    All the additions fall short of what I'd expect from a good sequel. [March 2005, p.105]
  5. The game suffers from being way too easy for veteran players, while it does still carry that pick-up-and-play function that was made popular with the old "NFL Blitz" games.
  6. Though NFL Street 2 does enough to entertain for an hour or two, fans of proper football, played with feet, are likely to find it quite dull.
  7. Feels very much like a downgraded mix of Midways "NFL Blitz" and "Madden."
  8. 57
    Yet another example of the dangers of one publishing company gaining a monopoly over a particular genre. The experience becomes homogenised and the resulting games become soulless products devoid of any indication.

    This game is the best. I love that there are new stuff like kill carrier and training mode. It is a lot better than the first one I love this game!!
