    Despite questions about its pacing and multiplayer options, Street will still keep the controller in your hands for hours. [Mar 2004, p.87]
  2. Taking the pigskin to the asphalt is a novel idea and makes for a fast and fun game of arcade football. It's not nearly as slick and addictive as its sister franchise NBA Street, though.
  3. The presentation is feisty, the graphics punchy and the animations gratuitous, plus the game is held together by a sense of fun that you won't get from many American Football sims. Also it has the right sort of aggressiveness that makes it an excellent multiplayer game. [GamesMaster]
  4. The whole game looks wonderful and the controls feel great, in fact there is no faulting this game except when you are defending, you just don’t seem to have a chance against the opposition.
  5. Sadly, NFL Street feels exactly like a sub-game, and an extremely common one at that.
  6. A fun, simplistic diversion, especially with a group of friends. However, once you've seen all the style moves it doesn't have the staying power of much deeper football games like EA's own "Madden NFL 2004."

    Defense is nonexistent. The QB has all the time in the world running circles around all the slow linemen. Offense is ok but not technical Defense is nonexistent. The QB has all the time in the world running circles around all the slow linemen. Offense is ok but not technical like a real sports game but also not flashy fun like NBA Street. Get Blitz and NBA Street. This isnt even worth a rent. Full Review »

    It's fun but the over-the-top attitude doesn't feel genuine. I also don't like how they did away with the kicking game. Street It's fun but the over-the-top attitude doesn't feel genuine. I also don't like how they did away with the kicking game. Street is about on par with NFL Blitz. Full Review »
