So, is FIFA Street a worthy addition to the neverending FIFA saga? I'd say yes. The refreshing EA Big approach finally gave me the feeling that I was playing a "new" game. The smooth gameplay we've experienced in Pro Evo Soccer and earlier FIFA's (98-2002) is present and that's a great thing. I'd even say this is the first football game since PES 4 that's actually worth you hard-earned cash.

Mit FIFA Street hat man die Street Familie um eine weitere interessante Serie erweitert. Fußballfans, die sich an spektakulärer Ballbehandlung nicht satt sehen können und dabei gerne auf Teile des Reglements verzichten, sind bei diesem Spiel gut aufgehoben. Einsteigerfreundlich und mit cooler Atmosphäre kommen Arcadefans durchaus auf ihre Kosten. Für den Nachfolger wünschen wir uns eine Online-Unterstützung und einen noch umfangreicheren Einzelspielermodus.

Fifa Street is a great game and EA managed to bring new life into their FIFA series. The controls finally work as they should and the gameplay never bores thanks to the fantastic tricks. The graphics could use some tuning just like the annoying commentary but nonetheless we have to say that this game is a must for any soccer lover who hates referees.

FIFA Street does what a lot of 'extreme' football games have been promising to do for ages. Sega Soccer Slam and Red Card did a pretty decent job a few years back, but the neat structure, slick playability and the benefit of having access to all the world's star players makes for a surprisingly compelling take on the sport. If you can take the world's most annoying commentator and want a footy game that lets you leave you opponent wiping football pie off his disbelieving face, then it's a worthy purchase.

Pour un entrée dans le genre, EA Sports Big réalise une belle cascade. En effet, FIFA Street se révèle dynamique, prenant, et véhiculant vraiment une bonne dose de "fun". Souffrant d'un certain manque d'innovations et de petits détails trahissant parfois un manque de finition, ce titre possède néanmoins un potentiel ludique assez imposant, qu'il serait dommage d'ignorer. En ces beaux jours qui reviennent, voici un choix chaleureux qui s'impose. En tout, cas, je retourne ridiculiser Roberto Carlos.

If you're a person that gets bored easily on the weekends, like me, then FIFA Street is the perfect source of entertainment. I found myself playing until 3 a.m. Sunday morning (whoops, sorry God!), about four to five hours straight. It's the perfect weekend rental, but for the lack of a cohesive multi-player experience, it's hard to warrant a purchase for anyone that's not a junky of soccer video games. Online multi-player wasn't included, but that will be fixed with the inevitable sequel. Still, whether soccer is your thing or not, FIFA Street is worth your time.

Nach nun mehr drei Ausflügen auf die Hinterhöfe der Streetball-Szene und zwei bodycheckgespickten NFL Hinterhofkeilereien war es nur eine Frage der Zeit bis EA auch die Fußballfraktion mit einem „Street-Ableger“ beglückt. Nun ist es soweit und EA schickt mit „Fifa Street“ seine Fußballhühnen auf eher unkonventionelle Plätze um sich die Bälle um die Ohren zu bolzen. Fußballfreunde hatten große Ansprüche an das Spiel, denn wer wollte nicht schon immer mal zaubern wie Ronaldinho und Co!? Ob das Spiel qualitativ mit seinen großen Brüdern mithalten kann erfahrt ihr hier…

Moins surprenant que NBA Street 3 et surtout moins maîtrisé, le jeu d'EA Big se veut pourtant très amusant et devrait satisfaire les amateurs de ce sport. Fifa Street est un premier essai concluant.

Die mitunter fragwürdigen KI-Aktionen der Akteure und Probleme bei der Kollisionsabfrage sorgen für einige Frustmomente. Spätestens wenn das Gameplay nur noch in ein Grätschmassaker ausartet und sich der Torhüter mal wieder dumm anstellt, wandert der Spielspaß in den Keller. Schade eigentlich, denn das Herumexperimentieren mit den ansehnlichen Trick-Moves macht gerade am Anfang noch viel Spaß, doch muss man leider schnell einsehen, dass nicht durch Tricks, sondern hauptsächlich durch unfaire Aktionen die Spiele gewonnen werden – oder aber, ihr habt eine überragende Mannschaft, die im Karrieremodus meiner Meinung nach viel zu früh ermöglicht wird. Unterm Strich bleibt ein mittelmäßiges und belangloses Herumgekicke, das weder der aufstrebenden Fifa-Serie noch den anderen Street-Sportspielen aus gleichem Hause das Wasser reichen kann.

Well, in the end, I have to say I am vastly dissapointed in a couple of ways. The game itself is good, but not as good as I hoped it would be. As a Soccer fan, I had high expectations of what FIFA Screen could be, and it was just not as good as I hoped. And not having online gameplay is a big big big issue for me. This is good for a weekend rental, but really nothing more.

It's the largest sport in the world, and Americans are just beginning to understand its many facets. One such unique aspect of soccer is its appeal on the streets, and while EA gets kudos for exposing us to this urban pastime, FIFA Street doesn't quite make the flashy goal it intended to make.

Well, it was bound to happen sometime. Every developer who makes an extreme sports game of some kind takes the dive into whatever other sport they can. We've seen extreme Football, Baseball, Basketball and more. And of course who stands at the top of the hill but EA Sports. EA's "Street" series has been one of the most popular to date, even overtaking such rivals as Midway and Sony. We've seen three versions of NBA Street, and two incarnations of NFL Street. And so it made sense that EA would want to branch out and start bringing in some of their other sports. Next on the list, FIFA Soccer! And so Fifa Street was born. Three on three soccer action with no rules, ball hoppin' tricks, and legendary Gamebreakers.

As the first entry in what will almost certainly become a series, FIFA Street is disappointing, but it is definitely a better game than the sum of its parts. It's not a difficult game to pick fault with, as you've probably gathered, but it can also be fun for a short while when played with the right people. Should you go out and buy a copy? No. Should you keep an optimistic eye out for a FIFA Street 2 announcement in the future? Definitely.

Hot on the heels of NBA Street V3, which was released earlier this month, comes FIFA Street--EA Sports Big's first attempt at applying its successful "Street" formula to the most popular sport in the world. Like its NBA and NFL counterparts, FIFA Street offers a highly stylized, over-the-top version of the sport on which it's based and sees soccer's most famous players competing in locations far less glamorous than the stadiums that they're accustomed to. The game they're playing, on the other hand, is straight out of a Nike commercial, and it places as much emphasis on humiliating your opponents with flashy moves as it does on scoring goals. The result? FIFA Street is a soccer game that boasts far more style than substance and has more in common with the FIFA games of old than it does with FIFA Soccer 2005.

The most popular sport in the world is soccer, however this is not the case in the U.S. The average American can probably name only two soccer players in the world: England’s David Beckham and Ronaldo of Brazil. Americans prefer sports like football, baseball, basketball and even hockey. When FIFA Street was released a few weeks ago, it is apparent that EA BIG was not catering to the tastes of a mainstream American. On the contrary, they were actually targeting a mostly European market. Now I’m certainly not a big soccer fan, but being a huge fan of the Street series by EA BIG (including the NBA Street and NFL Street series), I decided to give FIFA Street a try.

FIFA Street is definitely an interesting starting point for EA Big, but until I see a few refinements into the system, it will not be nearly as big and popular as the NBA Street series. Even with wide assortment of teams, the game probably would have worked better with club teams, but the selection is not bad. The game is a hit or miss, since some can enjoy this arcade system while others like me will be attached to the realistic sims and can't really enjoy this as much as we do other soccer games. Give it a spin, and even if you don't like it, you can experience a soundtrack not usually heard in EA titles.

If the passion of soccer leads people to violence, then I would watch out if I were FIFA Street – the game’s liable to make some people mad. At its highest level, soccer is all about the imagination and skill of the players. Street doesn’t come close to conveying either. Pulling off the deke moves is as automatic as hitting one button. These skill moves instead should tap into your own prowess as a gamer, similar to Tony Hawk. Since a lot of these tricks are done in your normal soccer game, what’s the impetus for me to play Street? If everything was done with a more fantastical flair, then the game might actually distinguish itself. For example, the GameBreakers are nothing more than shots on goal with extra zip. Since there is no customization or earning of moves, everyone pulls the same dekes – which is an insult to the real-life players.

Fun for a rental's worth of time. After that it's pretty boring. Compare it to the hours of replay value that NFL Street and NBA Street provide and you'll see that there is no comparison. FIFA Street is worth renting for all who love the Street games, regardless of the genre. You're going to walk away a little disappointed though, but extremely glad that you decided not to shell out the full amount to own it.

There's a solid base for a franchise in FIFA Street, but it's buried under several layers of crap, so you're not likely to have much fun with it. There's no question that this title was rushed out the door, and it's appalling that anyone would be expected to pay $50 for a clearly unfinished game. There's no point in buying this game; just wait for the sequel that will surely feature online play, more game modes, and better controls.

Er scheelt niet echt iets aan FIFA Street Soccer. Maar hoe men het in zijn hoofd haalt om voor dit redelijk beperkte spel toch een volle prijs aan te rekenen snap ik niet. Hooguit een weekje zal je van FIFA Street genieten, en daarna zal het nog zelden in je Xbox belanden vrees ik. Ik zou dus adviseren van toch zeker eerst eens uit te testen vooraleer je koopt. In een perfecte wereld was FIFA Street gewoon een unlockbaar bonusspel bij FIFA 2006, en dan was iedereen gelukkig. Maar in de realiteit wil EA hier volgens een bepaalde formule gewoon meer geld verdienen, en in dat opzicht is FIFA Street echt ons geld niet waard.

Mesmo com todas as críticas, "FIFA Street" é um jogo bastante competente. Com seus elementos analisados separadamente, é um título bastante problemático para uma série da importância que tem. Mas o estilo é promissor e merece um carinho maior de seu fabricante em termos de acabamento e conteúdo, não só uma estrutura de marketing gigantesca por trás de seu lançamento.

Fifa Street is the result of an attempt to blend together the world's most popular sport with flashy, hip-hop presentation. In this respect, Fifa Street accomplishes everything it sets out to do but falls short in every other department that makes a game fun and replayable.

In the now classic Sylvester Stallone movie, Victory, real-life soccer legend Pele said that real soccer is played not in a stadium but on the streets. On the streets there are no clashes of big egos or endorsement deals - there’s just participants playing for the pure love of the game itself. Forget the rules and the referee blowing the whistle every minute, this is soccer at its rawest form ... or at least this is the feel EASports Big is going for with FIFA Street. Does is succeed in bringing us stylish street soccer, though? Let’s find out, shall we?

Make no mistake, this is the one I’ve been waiting years for. Ever since EA Big wowed my ass off with its SSX series I’ve always entertained the prospect of it creating a football game. And why not? Basketball, Snowboarding, Wrestling, American Football… hell, even jet skiing. EA Big has sampled many wide delights but never something as obvious as football.

This game isn't as bad as other “Street” titles have been this round, but that's basically only because this is their first go at it, and because they left it Canadian, I guess. You already can see the signs of general EA-style lack of care starting to develop with it, though. I think with a bit wider field, and 5-on-5 soccer, with an assigned defender would make this a more overall playable experience. That way, you could have the AI still suck, but at least have a shot at stopping breakaways. As it is now, the fun of abusing your defender in whatever way you see fit loses its appeal shortly, and all you're left with is the perverse joy that comes from scoring 20 goals on an opponent. Defend your wallet against this weak shot from EA. Save your cash and rent, if anything.

Street games are meant to be different. Unrealistic. Simple. Playable. For that last category, FIFA Street fails. For the rest of the categories, the game achieves them with an incredible lack of grace. The game is different, as it covers a style of soccer gameplay rarely presented in videogame form, although this time through a silly marketing filter. Simple in that players really can pick up and play it, although they will be hard-pressed to find much fun here. And as for being playable, well, the game is such a bore than most gamers would prefer to let this one rot in the closet than pull it out for another go in their 'Cube. Passable graphics and its place in a revered series might attract gamers to this game, but don't be fooled: FIFA Street totes a gargantuan bag of tricks, but it is little more than a one-trick pony.

GameCubeIGN
This game feels poorly thought out and entirely based on a trick system that could translate well to soccer, but doesn't here. The progression scheme is obviously shifted over from the other Street games, and it holds the game together well enough, but the ball physics, poorly executed mo-cap, animations, and the character controls are all awkward, frustrating, and off-putting. What's more, the trick system, while OK, dominates the style of play to such a degree that FIFA Street doesn't really play like soccer at all.

There is no doubt in my mind that EA has worked hard to create new innovations in sports games in the last four years, whether it's creating exciting new feature sets or perfecting the use of the analog stick in football or boxing. Just a few short years ago, EA's fiercely competitive and ambitious nature resulted in the gleaning of NBA Street, the natural grandchild of NBA Jam, and took the mantle of arcade-style hoops king as a result. FIFA Street, however, is not NBA Street. I knew NBA Street, he was a great game and my personal friend, and you, FIFA Street, you're no NBA Street.

Imagine if you will that you find yourself in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil de Janeiro. You step out into the dusty streets of a sun-baked tenement, or favela, with three of your closest friends wearing matching jerseys and shorts. From where you are you can smell the beaches of Rio and in the far distance you can make out the hill with the statue of Christ looking out towards the east. Suddenly, four familiar athletes step into view, all of them wearing their own colors. Somebody tosses a soccer ball and the streets come to life with soccer. Welcome to FIFA Street, EA Sports Big answer to freestyle soccer.

EA really are in an enviable position in the industry. They've got the licences, they've got the franchises, they've got the game engines and they've got a fair few talented people working in their offices. Quite where any of those people were when FIFA Street was being bungled out the door is anyone's guess because given the Street template, the FIFA engine and talent that obviously resides at the company (look no further than the NBA Street franchise for evidence) this game is an unpolished and unfortunate release.

It's easy to see why the developers at EA chose to put the Street spin on the game of soccer. Tricks are a natural part of the game, as are exciting flying kicks and dramatic one-on-one matchups. However, one can't help but feel like FIFA Street was rushed out the door to capitalize on the recent successes of the NBA and NFL games. The AI is shoddy, ball physics are often laughable, and, worst of all, there's no online play for any of the systems. Still, you can be sure that the game is a building block of sorts, and we'll be seeing more FIFA Street action in the future. If the developers can improve on this game's shortfalls while keeping the strong points intact, there might be better games in the future. For now, though, soccer fans are better off playing a few more seasons in Winning Eleven 8 or FIFA Soccer 2005.

While some people might not realize it, soccer is still the most popular sport in the world (although basketball has been steadily gaining ground over the last decade), due largely to the fact that you don't need much in the way of equipment if you want to play. Basically, all you need is a ball, two feet (although even that requirement is open for discussion), and some way to denote a goal line. Though there's a tendency to think of the game always being played on well-kept grass fields, the reality is that, more often than not, kids play wherever there's open space, be it a dirt court or an asphalt-covered parking lot. Like basketball, it's a sport of the people. It's no surprise, then, that EA decided to apply its successful Street formula to futbol, resulting in FIFA Street. Unlike the titles in the excellent NBA Street series, however, this game feels like it was rushed out to capitalized on the Street name.
