    You never quite reach the same pumped-up heights you get while playing similar games, like "NBA Ballers" or "NBA Street" -- and despite the tricks, online play, and generally responsive controls, it would take a serious interest in the AND 1 legacy to maintain any level of interest in this game.
  2. If you want to ball street-style, both NBA Street and NBA Ballers offers a much better urban hoops experience, with NBA players from the present and past.
  3. Fine in multiplayer, but endless tricking makes games against Xbox tiresome. It's slow-paced novelty basketball. [Aug 2006, p.66]
  4. It had some good ideas in it and its heart was certainly in the right place, but the horrendous execution of all of those ideas is what ultimately leads to the downfall of AND1 Streetball.
  5. Average would be the word for And 1, but I wouldn't throw Black Ops and Ubi out of the game just yet. A little more polish, reworking of the controls and maybe And 1 Streetball II can play with the big boys.
  6. AND 1's cool Create-a-Baller and Create-a-Move modes make the game worth playing, if you yearn for the exaggerated, arcade gameplay in the spirit of NBA Jam, albeit with a lot more street style.
  7. And1 Streetball has some good ideas like the pulling off juke moves with the analog stick but unfortunately some technical errors are too much to ignore.
  8. A sporty struggle that's all style and no substance.

    There are plenty of mode, player, music choices. I think this game's good. It's a bit of a change from NBA.

    Above the rim and over the top! This game delivers on the most authentic street ball game ever. It took a while for it to come out, but Above the rim and over the top! This game delivers on the most authentic street ball game ever. It took a while for it to come out, but it's clean and polished, playing smooth and intuitively. The action is slammin and the game itself is rad. Full Review »
