  1. One of the least altered, if not the least altered, of all the console games ported to the PSP. And that ultimately works both for and against it.
  2. A tiny bit simple and way too similar to the PS2 version, but still good US footie fun. [PSM2]

    An admirable port -- a perfect example of how to properly transfer a game to Sony's handheld. With a few control tweaks to take advantage of the hardware, the sport will really shine.

    The GameBreakers are unbalanced and the new non-interactive GameBreaker 2's are shameful. [May 2005, p.136]
  5. The load times have the added effect of killing a lot of the joy that can be gained from playing this game.
  6. I don’t see a reason that EA feels like a port with no real enhancements is worth full retail price, especially since they couldn’t be bothered to update the horribly outdated rosters, which were already old on the PS2, and are even worse now. Toss in the awful load times, and you’ve got no reason to pick this one up.

    There's so many things that work for it, like the quick-styled gameplay and the presentation, and yet it's knocked down by the loading times and the fact that not too much sets it apart from the console version.

    The controls in the street slalom are so shoddy that it's more annoying than entertaining. [June 2005, p.99]
  9. 60
    The game is arguably more suited to a handheld since the fast-paced, somewhat repetitive action is best enjoyed in small doses.
  10. While EA scored big with the original, each successive Street has felt more and more like the repetitive plays in the identical playbooks - rote exercises to be performed in the endless pursuit of bling.

    Good game and I love the graphics -- it truly looks amazing! My only gripe is getting used to the controls. Keep the sports titles coming!
