  1. As a single-player game, My Street is a bore. It won't entertain you for very long, and the story and the dialogue is really pathetic.
  2. The online play is startling for one reason: nobody plays this game online.
  3. If the mini-games were easier to play, and there were more of them, paired with an adventure mode that wasn't quite such a throwaway piece of gameplay, this would be a really good title.
  4. It does do a great job at what it offers. Nearly all of the games are charming and fun – even if they’re not all that original, and the added appeal of online gaming solves the problem of having a party game but no friends to party with.

    Decent fun in short bursts with some friends in the standard multiplayer mode -- just don't expect much more from the game.
  6. If only more could have been done with the online, and that control smoothed out.
  7. Wants to appeal to everyone, but ultimately, it's not well suited for anyone.
  8. A short-lived single-player mode combined with repetitive multiplayer gameplay make this game a title destined for the bargain bin, rather than greatness.

    Here's the harsh truth about My Street: It's not a great place to visit, and you definitely wouldn't want to live there.
  10. 7 weak mini-games do not make for a good game. With only 2 out of the 7 warranting continual play, I'd say that's a pretty pathetic batting average.
  11. With about triple the number of mini-games, or a budget price launch, we'd probably recommend it as a quirky curiosity/novelty purchase, but if we have to hear another squeaky kid utter the word 'like', we'll probably self-combust.
  12. Unless you hate life, avoid this. [Apr 2003, p.72]
  13. Outside of a minigame or two, it just isn’t fun. The single-player story mode is uninspired and poorly executed, and the online component suffers from a serious lack of competition and more-than-occasional lag.
  14. My Street challenges me to think of a single type of gamer who would actually enjoy playing it. [Apr 2003, p.116]
  15. 30
    A terrible value, a terrible production, and most of all, a terrible game... The worst party game to date.
  16. The reason this process is so gut-wrenchingly irritating is that the controls for My Street, quite frankly, suck. [Apr 2003, p.90]
  17. It looks surprisingly nice and is designed well enough, but do you really want to visit My Street? [Apr 2003, p.63]
  18. By building the entire title around only seven mini-games, My Street doesn’t have nearly enough depth to keep players occupied for extended periods of time -- even with online multiplayer support and a great character editor.
  19. 40
    The kiddie treatment here is both disturbing and annoying, and the games themselves aren’t all that fun.
  20. 42
    There's nothing new here, which means the games get boring quickly. [Apr 2003, p.52]
  21. In an effort to reach a broad audience My Street, judging by the online traffic, has failed to reach anyone.
