  1. Dispense with kicking and doodle-heavy playbooks, and deploy between-the-leg laterals and double reverses, plus a mess of excellent unsportsmanlike, showboating taunts.
  2. The multiplayer modes alone are worth it. Add to that a high level of game mode depth, gameplay excellence, and stunning style and you’ve got one fantastic game.
  3. Street has surprising depth for an arcade football title, I enjoyed it more than I have any of the "Blitz" games, but it is a multiplayer title at heart and still comes up a little short in the single player experience.
  4. NFL Street is all about intense hits and all the stylin' and profilin' you won't find in an NFL regulated football game.
  5. Although the idea of playing tackle football on concrete surfaces while wearing baggy pants and adding apostrophes to the end of every word may seem a bit silly, underneath it all is a very solid experience. Any fan of the arcade sports genre will welcome the coming of NFL Street.
  6. Some elements of NBA Street's sense of style was lost in the translation between basketball and football, and the lack of a consistently enjoyable single-player mode is a problem for sure, but the game's excellent multiplayer component and its great level of graphical polish ultimately make NFL Street a game well worth playing for any fan of the arcade football genre.
  7. A fun, simplistic diversion, especially with a group of friends. However, once you've seen all the style moves it doesn't have the staying power of much deeper football games like EA's own "Madden NFL 2004."

    I love this game. After you learn the controls, the amount of strategy involved is immense. I played it for 7 hours straight last night and I I love this game.

    I like this game a lot, but defense is near impossible and it seems to border on luck more than skill. also first down markers areI like this game a lot, but defense is near impossible and it seems to border on luck more than skill. also first down markers are inconsistent. but i love the challenge mode and the pickup mode is genius...especially when you have vick, the fridge, and moss on your side. oh yeah!

    It's decent but I prefer Blitz. The attitude here is pretty dumb imo. The players act sooo fake hip that it's sickening.
