  • Summary: FIFA Street is a combination of arcade action blended with the culture of freestyle street soccer. By removing the rules from the simulation soccer experience, FIFA Street exposes the heart of the world's beautiful game, on-the-ball flare and individual style. Leading this movement are the worlds top professional players, showing off their skills and individual style in 4-on-4 match-ups against the backdrop of global venues that represent the true culture of street soccer. As the first game to support dynamic 1-on-1 encounters, beating your opponent will require skill, technique, and the careful selection of specific moves. As a gamer you'll take on the best and be required to earn their respect, gradually building your reputation and team into an unstoppable force that leads the tide of street soccer.

  1. It isn’t even in the same league as Big’s "NBA Street V3" yet (what is though?), but this first outing has without question laid the groundwork for what could blossom into a truly great series for EA.

    While two buddies playing each other can certainly appreciate FIFA Street, competitions against the computer can quickly turn into a repetitious chore.
  3. It’s far from perfect, with issues such as the crazy swings in player AI and overall lack of finesse and skill required; but for the most part we’re more than willing to forgo them in the name of fun – in multiplayer bouts particularly, FIFA Street throws up some highly frenetic yet engaging, competitive fun.
  4. The Street family grows but FIFA Street fails to impress with its blocky animations and the constant out-of-control feeling. [Mar. 05]
  5. A lack of entertainment value for the lone player is certainly made up for when demonstrating the game to your friends, and there is always demand for a game where you can just play it in a five minute stint, given the hectic social schedules of many older gamers.
  6. Sure its street soccer but FIFA Street just feels too flawed to be the edgy, no-holds barred soccer game we all hoped it would be.
  7. It left us shaking our heads in utter bewilderment. Fans of EA's other Street games will be rightly embarrassed by the sheer awfulness of this faux street culture. [PSW]

    The idea of creating a more arcade style, quicker paced spin-off of the hugely popular FIFA series was certainly a sound one, after all it worked pretty well with the NBA Street series. Unfortunately however, when it came to the execution EA got virtually everything wrong.

    Even played against a friend it was difficult to garner much enjoyment from the game and I could spend all day listing the huge number of flaws that prevent it from even being considered average, just a few examples of this are listed below:
    - Terrible ball physics with players seemingly having the ball stuck to the feet.
    - Too much focus on being able to perform worthless tricks rather than actually playing soccer.
    - The special 'Gamebreaker' shots are a waste of time.
    - A terrible selection of 'rap' music and a truly obnoxious game announcer.
    - Winning is far more reliant on luck than skill.
    - Dull single player career mode.

    I could go on but by now you should have realised that this is one to avoid.
