  • Summary: Freestyle Street Soccer focuses on 10 individual gangs--all based on the different styles, fashions, and cultures found in the concrete jungle. These teams fiercely compete for each other's turf with the ultimate goal to gain control of the whole city. You'll join the battle as one of 40 players with individual catchphrases, plus trick, combo, and special moves. As you conquer the challenges in five game modes, remember--on the streets, it's just as important to look cool as it is to score goals. Collapse

  1. An engaging and challenging urban adaptation of the sport, Freestyle Street Soccer offers a solid arcade sporting experience. Balancing traditional soccer gameplay with easy-to-execute tricks and stunts, the game is simple to play.
  2. The problems start with control. The response isn't razor sharp, the special moves aren't spectacular, and the Netbuster specials are too easy to pull off. [Jan 2004, p.73]
  3. Passing and shooting in these high-scoring battles is as easy as squeezing the trigger on an Uzi, but complicated button-mashing for trick moves, muddy graphics, and a schizophrenic soundtrack of Method Man, TLC, and Foo Fighters all draw red cards.

    Squarely intent on holding the middle ground in every sense of the phrase, this isn't a terrible game, but it isn't especially good, either.
  5. The gang vernacular and the gratuitous use of swearing may make this game appear cool but you may as well listen to an Andrew Dice Clay recording and play with a string-less yo-yo.
  6. There's also a full set of uninteresting urban ethnic stereotypes rendered in starkly dated graphics and loudmouth fake gangsta sound bites. [Mar 2004, p.85]
  7. The realization that the game looks like crap is essentially an afterthought...This would pass as a minigame mode in "FIFA" or "Winning Eleven," but no way is it ready to stand on its own. [Mar 2004, p.80]
