  1. The game suffers from being way too easy for veteran players, while it does still carry that pick-up-and-play function that was made popular with the old "NFL Blitz" games.
  2. A good enough game, though barely anything has changed. It doesn't feel like it has been rushed, since it isn't buggy or broken in any way, but there's definitely a lack of proper maturation here that hinders the overall product.
  3. Only if you really, really liked the first one - or if you didn't buy it at all. [Feb 2005, p.84]
  4. A fun game – for a few hours. If you’re playing the series for the first time, the game is certainly better than the first NFL Street, but it still lacks replay value.
  5. A great game to play with friends online or off, but here's hoping the next iteration gives us more to do with the D.
  6. Planning your offensive and defensive attacks plays a massive role and is essentially where the fun lies.
  7. Too complicated for an arcade sports game. Maybe it is the sports - perhaps it is just too alien for a European mind. [Mar. 05]
  8. Though NFL Street 2 does enough to entertain for an hour or two, fans of proper football, played with feet, are likely to find it quite dull.
  9. The new mini-games aren't particularly enjoyable for longer than five minutes at a time, but there are quite a few on offer making it a real case of quantity over quality.
  10. Just like they did with "Def Jam: Fight for NY," EA Big ignored NFL Street’s fundamental issues and instead added more flash and one or two new moves. While undeniably fun, EA Big has no right to call NFL Street 2 a sequel.

    Yet another example of the dangers of one publishing company gaining a monopoly over a particular genre. The experience becomes homogenised and the resulting games become soulless products devoid of any indication.
  12. This is a fine game, just like the first version, which earned three stars from me. But the scant innovations in Street 2 make it optional for anyone who has the original.
  13. While Street 2 is appealingly approachable, it gets monotonous, particularly for owners of the original. Solo modes are dull and arduous.
