  1. Dispense with kicking and doodle-heavy playbooks, and deploy between-the-leg laterals and double reverses, plus a mess of excellent unsportsmanlike, showboating taunts.
  2. The graphics in NFL Street look good with a slight edge going to the Xbox version of the game. The Xbox version looks smoother and cleaner while the PS2 version looks a little rough around the edges.
  3. 92
    It's definitely one of the best multiplayer games out there and is so addictive you might lose a whole weekend with nothing to show of it but sore thumbs and the memory of the five lateral double reverse that you ran the length of the field only to fumble when getting blasted into a wall.
  4. In the surprisingly good single-player "NFL Challenge" mode, you earn points to build a franchise, choosing everything from the players' mutated genes (10 attributes, plus size) to their speed-enhancing sneakers. 'Cause it ain't all about the steroids.
  5. It has stylish gameplay that never really gets old (LATERAL CITY!), graphics that are stunning, sound that fits the mood, and extras aplenty.
  6. A rarity among its peers as it brings a simplified game of football home for gamers that just can't seem to get their minds around the rules of "Madden 2004."
