AND 1 Streetball also gives you the power to create your own player and your own moves -- so YOU can become the next streetball phenomenon. Step into the shoes of the AND 1 players to execute mesmerizing moves like Hot Sauce's killer crossover, Helicopter's rim-bending dunks, and The Professor's no-look passes. Build your own character and create your own signature moves using AND 1's revolutionary Create-a-Move editor, loaded with custom showboating, scoring, and celebration moves. School the competition with I-Ball controls, an intuitive control system that gives you fluid and precise command over every offensive and defensive move. Not only will you do it, you will also feel it. Story mode allows you to experience the trials and exhilarations of getting signed to the AND 1 Mix Tape Team, as seen on ESPN. Dominate the open run, survive the hazing, and bring it home in the final game, as seen on ESPN. Play the game you want to play. Scale your teams anywhere between one-on-one to five-on-five. Run a full-court game, or do a half-court battle. [Ubisoft] Collapse

    AND1 Streetball stands alone as the only basketball game out there right now that truly captures the thrill of real street basketball. [Aug 2006, p.86]
  2. The barrage of 'street'-speak, stupid player names (we want to punch the prick who calls himself '1/2 Man, 1/2 Amazing'), yawnsome hip-hop and seriously over-the-top commentary all becomes a bit much, though we guess it kind of comes with the territory. If you're after a more skilful alternative to NBA Street V3 then And 1 Streetball should be right up your, er, street.
  3. These guys deserve credit for developing two solid basketball games despite the snickers and giggles amongst the gaming world. And they deserve credit for the contributions they made to the genre four years ago. It’s just a case of too little too late.

    Just average b-ball...Average b-ball means it's not good streetball. [Aug 2006, p.78]
  5. While there are some decent ideas in And1 Streetball, it feels like the game wasn't refined nearly enough as it should have been. Everything, from the core gameplay to the presentation, seems very roughly executed, so it's difficult to recommend this game to anyone.

    Easily one of the weakest basketball games to have come out in a while, primarily thanks to its idiotic control scheme. Having more than 130 moves is a good idea, but if the game won't recognize what you're telling players to do because moves are tied to the analog sticks, it doesn't matter.

    With core mechanics this flawed, no amount of cut-scene-laden story modes, create-a-move editors or unlockable extras will make up for what is a truly putrid videogame. [Aug 2006, p.127]

These game magazines or whatever are seriously missing the point. They probably don't even play ball. The gameplay is tight, the tricks, the customizing of players... it's all reaaally tight. Way better than other streetball games I've played. 10 out of 10, for sure. Expand

    Worse thing about this game is it's not on the 360. PLEASE UBISOFT, if you're reading this, port this to a better system! It'sWorse thing about this game is it's not on the 360. PLEASE UBISOFT, if you're reading this, port this to a better system! It's freaking awesome on PS2, but it really needs a console that can live up to its true potential as a game. Great controls, gameplay, endless fun if you play with multiple people.. it's just ... off the hook! Expand
