  1. While EA will probably never make another Mutant League game of any sort, NFL Street 3 ensures that the game of football can still be irreverent and entertaining at the same time.
  2. With its stylish visuals, some rocking sounds, and a solid control scheme to all compliment the frenzied gameplay, you should enjoy the core of the game.
  3. The new Gamebreaker moves are out of this world. For the die-hard, obsess-bordering fans like myself, that’s all the series needs (at this point). I’m hooked.

    The inclusion of new game types helps players who’ve outgrown the older street events, and removing Gamebreakers from the cutscene format is a definite improvement for in-game strategy.
  5. The third in the series has plenty of upgrades, but none are more evolved than the new Gamebreaker system. [Holiday 2006, p.78]
  6. NFL Street 3 plays a fine game of street football. It’s the kind of game that you can get a casual gamer into in a few minutes, compared even to other casual games like the Madden series.
  7. Sure, they could have done more with the two-year development cycle since the last release, but the game is worth a look for fans of the series and rookies alike.
  8. A good game that should improve the more you play, as more moves come out of the closet. [Mar 2007, p.73]
  9. Once you're over the cosmetic gloss, you might wander back to Madden for your gridiron fix, especially if you own one of the older "NFL Streets." Worth a look, however. [Mar 2007, p.77]
  10. For the most parts an entertaining street football experience. The gamebreaker meter and environmental objects add freshness to the gameplay. There is a lot to do, but the lack of variation is a definite problem. [Mar 2007]
