  1. FIFA Street 3 is about taking all the superficial and superfluous things about modern day football – from the overhead kicks to the pop-culture that surrounds the beautiful game in the 21 st century – and placing them centre stage.
  2. While slim on modes, the sum of FIFA Street 3’s individual parts makes it recommendable to anyone, including those who aren’t too hot for soccer.

    FIFA Street 3 would be a great game if it could manage to find some depth. As it is, the game is immediately pleasing, but runs out of puff too quickly, especially in solo play.
  4. The game feels rushed, with an obvious lack of love and passion.
  5. Good in the short term, somewhat tedious in the long. [Issue#30, p.88]
  6. This game may not appeal to a big percentage of soccer fans. Nevertheless, it does provide a few good laughs albeit short-lived. It’s not a game I can see myself playing consistently.
  7. 40
    A sequel isn’t supposed to be softer, poorer, slower, weaker, but that sadly sums up FIFA Street 3's questionable content.

    I don't think that most reviewers are being fair with this, it feels like they are putting Pro Evo or Fifa 08 and Fifa St side by side and comparing, but they are totally different games, the only common ground is football. Fifa St is hugely accessible, fast and funky street football that just about anyone can pick up and have fun with, and it is TREMENDOUS fun, especially with friends. Graphics are amazing too. So, yes it is arcadey and doesn't have a billion footy-geek options concerning buying and selling players, leagues yawno yawno, it is straight up super dynamic, adrenaline fueled trick and stunt filled street football gloriousness. if in doubt, download the demo. I was in doubt, I downloaded the demo, and then rushed out and got the first copy I came across. Simply brilliant. Expand

    As the years have gone by it is true that the FIFA Street series has gone downhill. Fifa Street was fantastic,number 2 just above average and this latest edition continues the downward slide. The series has lost the fun and customization of the first Street, however this 3rd game is not as bad as people think. More detail has been added to the arenas, and the new cartoon-style graphics work well for most players. Despite this FIFA Street 3 has a poor soundtrack and the only good game mode is the inspired playground picks. The challenge mode is nothing compared the Rule the Street mode of the the first FIFA Street, because you cant make a player or buy other players. Expand

    FIFA Street 3 went in the opposite direction of FIFA Street 2. The game dropped player creation and made players very cartoony. An utter disappointment for street soccer fans everywhere. Expand

    All you have to do is lob the ball once or twice before shooting and you can practically drill it from any distance. If only they fixed that, this game might have been fantastic. Expand
