Step into the shoes of NBA legends, current basketball stars, and original characters from previous games. Play in familiar courts, such as The Cage and Rucker Park, or create your own court from the ground up. NBA Street V3 also features a new dunk contest and online multiplayer modes. Expand

    From the new Trick Stick system to the amazingly deep career mode, nearly everything added to NBA Street V3 works perfectly... [T]his may very well be the greatest basketball game ever made, arcade or otherwise.
  2. One of the most fun games you'll find for current-generation consoles.
  3. It's truly excellent to finally be able to play NBA Street V3 on Xbox Live.
  4. Luckily for everyone, though, the Beastie Boys are in the game! What time is it? It's time to get ill! Indeed, their hip-hop presence goes some way to nullifying the absolute lameness of crappy urban poetry guy.
  5. The online play is unrivaled. However even the smaller size of the S controller manages to mar the experience just a tad. I play a lot of Xbox and I'm used to it, but I would definitely consider getting one of those peripherals that allows me to use a PS2 controller in my Xbox.
  6. Easily the best arcade basketball game I've played in years, but the requisite 14 fingers needed to play it is a bit ridiculous.
  7. Style is nothing without substance.

    This game is off the chizzy, how in the &$@% can they still make an arcade style game hot to death year after year. The first one was tough, the second one was fire, but this one, this one is the truth. EA you got when it comes down to the new NBA JAM, but this kills NBA JAM, this is basketball on STEROIDS for real. Great Game!!!!! Collapse
