Get ready to rule the streets and look good doing it. Expand

  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. It has stylish gameplay that never really gets old (LATERAL CITY!), graphics that are stunning, sound that fits the mood, and extras aplenty.
  3. With a strong dose of attitude, very accessible control scheme and creative spin on the sport of football, NFL Street is a bold and worthy addition to the EA Sports Big family.

    The single-player NFL Challenge mode can destroy your enjoyment in short order, but as long as you have real-life friends to join you, NFL Street is a blast—and a much-needed shot in the arm for the genre.
  5. The only thing missing is a simple pro season mode. But things like online play and the inclusion of some classic players (Walter Payton, Howie Long, Ronnie Lott, etc.) more than make up for it.
  6. All in all, Street is more of a pure multiplayer experiece. [Mar 2004, p.96]
  7. 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."

    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. Expand

    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. Collapse
