Description

Just like the console versions, AND 1 Streetball brings basketball to the streets. Clearly steering away from the search for realism in EA's NBA Live series, this game offers an arcade approach, with two-on-two games, fantasy moves and slamming dunks, rough play, and hip hop-themed announcers. Next to quick games (runs), the main game mode is the AND 1 Challenge. In six series of two games, you select and play different streetball legends. By winning matches, new characters and courts are gradually unlocked.

Next to the regular movement, there is a key to shoot, block and dunk, one to pass or steal, another to perform a trick or to push an opponent, and a final one to perform an alley-oop or to switch the defenders. Various parameters are added. To get a better shot, you need to hold the shoot key pressed until the ball glows green, alley-oops need precise timing with another meter, and you can also go for a return. By holding certain keys, players can perform auto-defense, auto-block or auto-steal. The dunks are over-the-top, with a replay mode, and by scoring multiple points players become "on fire", with more spectacular effects similar to the NBA Jam games. Matches are rather short, and the various settings can be fine-tuned in the options.

The basics are explained in a 10-step tutorial, and the game's theme song is a digitized version of Sean Paul's "We Be Burnin".
