    The game's more successful at being "Virtua Barbie" for the urbanite than playing a mean game of basketball.
  2. Unlike EA's game ["NBA Street"], Street Hoops is ugly, shallow, and incredibly dull.
  3. A crummy engine, weak graphics and waaaay more style than substance leads to a highlight reel gimmick that only Daryl Dawkins could enjoy.

    Very good game but not without its problems. Does a good job of capturing street ballers and the whole essence of playing the blacktop. What's more irritating than this game is this whole "its not NBA Street". I'm not sure what black top you play on but in mine the are guys name Half-man Half amazing, Speedy, and AO not Michael Jordan, Larry Bird or Karl Malone. Street Ball is totally different and once the public gets that then this wack comparison will end. Just because you see a highlight of Tracy McGrady up in Rucker doesn't mean he spends summer in NYC. Bottom line rent first then if you don't like it you didn't waste $50. Full Review »
