  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.
  2. What you've got here isn't so much a game of football as a game of funball. The game is stripped back to basics and taken to the streets, the emphasis moving away from carefully practiced plays and detailed managing, towards looking cool and scoring goals as flamboyantly as you can.
  3. Basic soccer with equally basic AI and gameplay means you'll be entertained at first, but the more you play the less you appreciate what's happening on the urban pitch.
  4. Four aside in tiny pitches, no matter how variable, loses its charm rather soon. So even if you get bored of the main beef of the game the prospect of throwing ten minutes into a friendly is a little out of the question.
  5. [Street] mode would've been a lot more enjoyable if it weren't for the idiotic AI. Quite frankly, it's downright painful. [March 2005, p.80]
  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]

It's basically do tircks, finish story with a great character and team, then stop. Athough the players look stunning. Expand

That said, it's great to see that FIFA Street isn't nearly as bad as any of these disappointments. The game does have flaws, but the critics are being a little too harsh. The controls are clunky at first, but after playing long enough it begins to feel natural. The only problems are the AI and the fact that you can't control the Gamebreakers. With this, NBA Street V3, Oddworld, and Fight Night Round 2 it's nice to see EA back to making awesome games. Expand
