A pure, fun and addictive gaming experience that brings back in full throttle the beloved arcade football (or soccer) game of the previous generation. Simply put, this is a must have for football lovers.
Amazingly fun addition to the FIFA franchise, this game is packed with content and fun. To be able to pull off some the tricks and make your friends feel stupid is such a great feeling, this is addictive and amazing and is a MUST BUY!
After SSX this is the second successful reboot for former EA Sports Big franchises: With FIFA 12 as foundation the mechanics in Street feel much more down-to-earth compared to the predecessors without losing their arcade touch. But physics and AI still need improvement.
Despite some really strange development choices like limited multiplayer and no pro teams on career mode, FIFA Street is a good game. Gameplay mechanics are incredibly solid and functional, so the game is capable to involve gamers interested in football and street football equally.
Overall, this is a fun game, yes. I will find myself playing it quite often until Euro 2012 comes out. But consider this title for what it is. EA chose not to call this the 4th installment for a reason -- This is a new attempt at repackaging an old Franchise.
Given that FIFA 12 is crammed with modes and teams, FIFA Street feels lightweight, with only a handful of licensed club leagues on offer and a main menu bereft of choice. Still, if you're getting bored of FIFA and like your football a little more vibrant, this is a decent if not essential choice.
This reboot takes itself too seriously -- every texture is spit-shined and gleaming, every animation wrought with care -- without the self-awareness to sacrifice technical sophistication for ease of use. FIFA Street is enjoyable only under the best circumstances, before the engine and the sheer density of barely distinguishable, locked-out moves take over.
The king is back. The return of the much loved franchise leaves a significant mark. Beautiful customization, world class players and iconic street pitches enable this entry to capture the classic FIFA Street experience. However a lack of replay ability makes for a frustrating purchase after conquering the world of street football.
