NBA Street Vol. 2 has passed the dreaded sequel slump some sports games suffer from nowadays. It has solid gameplay which creates a big-time replay factor. Even after you unlock everything you will still be down to take on your friends with the multitude of things you acquired; such as throwback jerseys, courts, legends and street ballers. This game will stay on my list of games to play for a long time. It doesn't look like there are many games out there that can top this one. I will have to wait and see how good the new NBA Jam is going to be when it hits stores. However, it has quite the job ahead of it to take out NBA Street Vol. 2.

NBA Street Vol. 2 represents the very best in over-the-top basketball action. Play games, earn reward points, unlock stuff -- and kick your friend's asses with plenty of showy, sneaky moves. NBA Street Vol. 2 never gets complicated, it never gets boring, and it will probably remain the best sports game of the year -- especially in the eyes of those gamers not necessary obsessed with stats and realism. Shaq versus Larry Bird? Not a problem.

NBA Street Vol. 2 not only proved it was as good as NBA Jam, in my book, but easily surpassed it, becoming my new favorite arcade sports title. A fun-filled ride featuring great control, fantastic graphics and a sweet soundtrack make this a title that should be in anyones game library. Regardless of which version you choose, you're still going to get a great game of b-ball... arcade style!!

NBA Street Vol. 2 has quickly become one of my favorite games of 2003. The tons of single player game modes along with the automatic fun of head-to-head matches with your buddies make Street 2 one of the best values on any system. EA usually has top notch production elements regardless of genre, but the development team in Canada has set a new standard for keeping a consistent theme running through every element of a game. This is one of the main reasons why Street 2 will appeal to casual hoop fans who don't know their triple threat positions from their baselines. Even fans of basketball sims won't be able to resist the flat-out fun with NBA trappings that Street represents.

A sequel built on a foundation as solid as that of EA Big’s original NBA Street (PS2, GC) seems destined for greatness, and when screenshots of the game were released many months back they only confirmed what many had already been expecting. Firstly, it was quite evident from the scant information released on the game up until its release that the game was to be built upwards, not outwards. Meaning that the developers didn’t have any intentions of wildly innovating over the original, but rather planned on adding to it with legions of improvements and additions. The result of EA’s efforts may not be entirely surprising, but its many refinements do give way to an insanely entertaining arcade-style b-ball experience that goes beyond even that of the original.

When the original NBA Street hit PS2 and GameCube it just about spelled certain doom for Midway's groundbreaking NBA Jam/Showtime series. Street quite simply did everything better and with more of an edge. With the arrival of NBA Street 2 on Xbox, GameCube and PS2 you're getting so much more --more dunks, more players, more moves, more music and a lot more street-- that even most fearful anti-sports gamer out there will want to lace 'em up one time and get flashy on the sticks.

In his book Which Lie Did I Tell?, Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman states that "Here is one of the main rules of adaptation: You cannot be literally faithful to the source material. Here's another that critics never get: You should not be literally faithful to the source material. It is in a different form... Here is the most important rule of adaptation: You must be totally faithful to the intention of the source material." I feel the same way about video game adaptations of true life, sports included: They should keep the bits that lend themselves to an exciting video game experience, and throw out the rest.

Even with some of the problems that I’ve raised, NBA Street 2 is a huge leap forward in the evolution of street basketball. It has numerous options, solid control, and engaging gameplay that will appease hardcore fans and casual ballers alike. Even better, it’s incredibly easy to pick up and learn how to play, meaning that just about anyone can grab a controller and throw up a challenge to the resident king of the courts. So lace up your sneakers, grab your squad and get ready to throw down, because if you play games, you should slam this title into your system as soon as you can.

NBA Street Vol. 2 is a fantastic arcade basketball game, and easily the best on the PS2 to date. Addictive gameplay and a plethora of unlockables make this game definitely worth buying for single player, and the multiplayer game modes are reason enough to run out and invest in a multitap.

I’m not the biggest sports fan, but with games like NBA Street Vol. 2, it’s easier to get into the game and even inspires me to check out some in-depth statistics. It obviously isn’t the basketball simulator that the NBA Live series is, but definitely reminds me of the classic Midway NBA Jam series back in the 90’s. Who can I recommend this title to? Anyone and everyone, especially sports fans!

NBA Street Vol. 2 is a worthy sequel to the original game, and successfully builds on what NBA Street did so well. Sure, there are always improvements to be made, such as the inclusion of online play or the more gradual increase in difficulty from setting to setting, but that's one reason why continued sequels can be a good thing. There's been enough added to the single-player experience to make it worth a definite purchase, even if it's just used as a temporary diversion from the rigors of Franchise mode in NBA 2K3. The flexibility of the multiplayer experience is largely improved, thanks to the many rules options. It's rare when a sequel outclasses its predecessor in almost every way, especially when the first game was so highly thought of—but NBA Street Vol. 2 simply exceeds the quality of NBA Street on almost every level and is as close to a definite purchase as I can recommend.

While on the surface it’s a prettier and more refined version of the original, extended playtime will reveal a game that’s unique from its predecessor – faster, crazier, more tricks, better GameBreaker system, deeper single player modes, etc. NBA fans that revel in the old-school will be in heaven with all the legends, and everyone else will love the fast pace and excitement of this arcade hoops classic. Basketball fan or not, NBA Street Vol. 2 will appeal, be it as a single player game or multiplayer party game.

NBA Street Vol.2 kann auf dem GameCube vollkommen ungefährdet die Basketball-Spitzenposition übernehmen - selbst wenn man die teilweise sehr guten „Simulationen“ mit einbezieht. Zwar gibt es hin und wieder mit der nicht ganz intuitiven Steuerung Probleme, doch die motivierenden Spielmodi und die ansonsten grandiose Spielbarkeit sorgen dafür, dass man gerne das Pad in die Hand nimmt, um sich an die Kontrollfeinheiten zu gewöhnen. Die Grafik, die sich zwischen PS2 und der Xbox positionieren kann, tut ihr Übriges: klasse Animationen, detaillierte Spieler und ein leicht comiclastiger Stil mit 70er-Jahre-Flair machen das Zuschauen zum Vergnügen. Und wer tatsächlich mit den fordernden Einzelspieler-Modi keine Erfüllung findet, kann immer noch seine Freunde im Multiplayer-Modus herausfordern.

Wer auf schnelle Basketball-Action abfährt, bei der man mit Dutzenden Tricks um sich schmeißen kann, liegt mit NBA Street Vol. 2 genau richtig. Egal, ob einzeln oder mit Freunden, sorgen die Spielmodi und Regeloptionen für Spaß ohne Ende. Kleinere Mankos wie fehlendes „Drei-Menschliche-Gegner-gegen-CPU“ nimmt man dabei genau so in Kauf wie die Steuerung, die zwar deutlich intuitiver gelöst wurde als beim GameCube-Kollegen, aber nicht ganz an die exzellente PS2-Kontrolle heran reicht. Dafür liegt die Xbox grafisch und in Punkto Ladezeiten vor den beiden Familienmitgliedern. Doch unter dem Strich zählt nur eines: die Spielbarkeit. Und die ist schlichtweg phänomenal. Die Balance zwischen Abwehr und Angriff wurde klasse gelöst und dürfte immer wieder für spannende Duelle sorgen. NBA Street ist und bleibt der Basketball-König - und das voraussichtlich für lange Zeit.

Die NBA Street-Serie ist und bleibt der Basketball-König. Die Tugenden des Vorgängers wie exzellente Spielbarkeit, eine gelungene Mischung aus Abwehr- und Angriffsverhalten sowie Tricks ohne Ende wurden nicht nur beibehalten, sondern massiv verbessert. Sowohl für Einzelspieler als auch für Fans von heißen Multiplayer-Duellen ist genügend Stoff für zahllose spannende Stunden vorhanden. Der gewählte Comic-Grafikstil wird dezent eingesetzt und sorgt zusammen mit der 70er-Jahre Präsentation für ein gigantisches Streetball-Feeling. Wer auch nur einen Funken Interesse für Basketball aufbringen kann, sollte sich das Spiel schleunigst zulegen. Denn die heiße Arcade-Action lässt sämtliche „realistische“ Konkurrenz hinter sich und reizt insgesamt gesehen das Genre so weit aus, wie es offline möglich ist.

The bottom line is that NBA Street is just plain fun, or as you?ll start saying after playing Street for awhile, NBA Street is off the chain. Truly it is a treat for serious NBA basketball fans, weekend warriors, and the casual sports fan alike. With smooth graphics and animations, a true feel for the art of street ball, fantastic controls, and a multiplayer mode that brings out the trash talker in even choirboys make NBA Street a must have for owners of any major console. Now boys and girls, while you are breaking the ankles of your friends with killer crossover and over the top stutter steps, and you are having trouble mastering the art of trash talking, ghetto style. I will be holding an Ebonics seminar in Seattle, Washington in June.

Having been very impressed by NBA Street last year, I have to say that I was quite excited to learn that EA had a sequel planned for release this year. But, with a name like "Vol. 2," I was also worried that it would only be slightly improved over the original. That statement couldn't be farther from the truth. NBA Street Vol. 2 is everything the original should be, and it's hard to find fault with it. From the engrossing single-player mode to the addictive multiplayer, NBA Street Vol. 2 will be spinning in my GameCube for months and months to come. In fact, like any good multiplayer experience, I will continue to enjoy it until I see Vol. 3.

Baseball may be as American as apple pie and football might have unbridled testosterone appeal, but no sport can match basketball's combination of athletic prowess and cutting edge style. Basketball commercials are like MTV shorts, all hectic hip-hip cool, celebrating individual players as if they were top grossing box-office stars. Be like Mike? How about KG or Shaq or AI or Kobe?

The first NBA Street was tremendously innovative, and Volume 2 takes that winning formula and improves on it in almost every way imaginable. Stunning enhancements to the visuals and sound aside, the new tricks, game variations and collection of extras is more than one would expect from a sequel. NBA Street Vol. 2 is more than a marvelous basketball game, it’s easily one of the best sports titles to come along in years.

NBA Street Vol.2 is niet het meest innovatieve spel ooit, en ook zeker niet het beste spel ooit. Maar wat het doet, doet het goed, en het is ongetwijfeld naast Kung Fu Chaos één van de puurste "fun" releases van dit jaar, totnogtoe !

GameCubeGame Informer Magazine
The adage "more bang for your buck" is exemplified to its fullest degree within NBA Street Vol. 2. Judging by the extensive new content that has been added, the developers obviously made a conscious effort to expand upon the longevity and replay value. The inaugural release followed the traditional arcade mold fairly closely, whereas the sequel steers clear of this design in favor of a deeper, sim-like experience. This new approach is best exemplified by the inventive Be a Legend mode, where you follow the day-to-day happenings and progression of an upstart player. As your baller gains respect; new teammates, uniforms, and attribute points will become available. You’ll also run headlong into a number of Street Challenges with unique parameters – such as a match where only dunks count.

There is no denying that NBA Street owes its very existence to NBA Jam; but when you look at what EA BIG has done to the original blueprint, you can’t help but feel that this is a completely different game. Vol. 2 – which marks Street’s Xbox debut – makes the differences even more pronounced by adding the ability to pass the ball off opponents’ heads or the backboard, and you can call for a pick or double-team when extra help is needed.

It's a blast making your players quickly and easily score some of the most outrageous dunks and it's great to sit and watch someone else play for its lovely visuals and great soundtrack. If you're going to play any sports sim this year, try and get your hands on this one - it's definitely no Airball, in fact, it's an absolute Give-and-go!

Besides a could-be-better multiplayer engine the people at EA Big really out did themselves in every aspect. Volume 2 is a game I recommend to anyone who likes videogames, not just sports fans. It’s cool, it’s fun, and it will keep you playing for a long time. As hard as it was to reach the bar the first one set Vol. 2 managed to clear it without a problem. Definitely the best sports game in a long time.

Crazy basketball action is the name of the game in NBA Street Vol. 2, the follow-up to an impressive series debut. The game is all about lightning-fast basketball action played three on three with hard slam dunks, no fouls and plenty of trash talk. If you played NBA Jam years ago, you've got a good idea what this game's all about, but it adds to that formula in plenty of ways to provide a desirable upgrade to both that ancient series and the first NBA Street.

While I'm still not such a big fan of the sport itself, I think NBA Street Vol. 2 is a fantastic game that is yet whitout a peer. Extensive modes offer you hours of non-stop gaming, easy to pick up controls let you perform great moves, etc. etc. etc. I could go on for hours about how great this game exactly is, but I'll just add all that in the small box below. No negativo's this time, simply because I can't come up with any.

The only thing that's likely to slow this series down is a yearly update that doesn't produce enough bang for your buck. NBA Street Vol. 2 isn't that game…yet. It leaves little to complain about but also leaves minimal room for improvement. It's a top notch sports product that's filled with action and even comedy. The announcer will have you in stitches before you've finished your first game. It's some of the best commentary you'll hear in any sports game and it takes a long time before the phrases become repetitive.

Basketball is a sport that has always been close to my heart. I grew up in the East Midlands in a footballing town and went to a very sporty secondary school. It was so sporty, as it goes, that they actually had basketball nets in the playground, so I basically shot hoops with my basketball mad mates every lunchtime for five years and left the footballing kids to it. This was the late eighties, you know, also the time when the BBC had the good sense to show NBA highlights on a Saturday night, so come Monday we'd all try to copy the tricks we'd just seen our b-balling heroes pulling off. It was actually quite a site seeing tonnes of school kids in ropey school uniforms all trying to do the Magic Johnson hook shot, or the Jordan finger roll. Hell, I was convinced I was Larry Bird for a while, it was great; at fifteen years old I could just about pull off a fairly ugly dunk. It wasn't real American street basketball, I'll give you that, but to us it was just about close enough.

I have absolutely no interest in snowboarding, skateboarding or ice hockey. I really don't. And yet SSX, Tony Hawk and NHL are all games that all grace my TV screen with indecent regularity. Why? Because the artistry of a truly brilliant arcade sports game can slam dunk apathetic ignorance without breaking a sweat. NBA Street Volume 2 is one of those.

As much as I loved the game, it still lacked that special "something" to make it a "10". It seemed many times (especially later in the game) that gameplay relied too heavy on two things: blocking and dunking. On defense the offense will score; unless you block their dunk. And when on offense any shot you took would be blocked unless you pulled off a powerful dunk. In all reality, the "street" sense of the game was perfect, except for the over-jumping abilities in regards to goaltending. I think if the goaltending was dumbed down a bit; players could experience more of the actual strategy surrounding basketball itself. Maybe in volume three, EA Canada will see how absurd the goaltending actually is and pull off the inevitable slam dunk.

PlayStation 2Netjak
The game's just as fun as the first. Almost exactly as much fun, come to think of it. The new features add something to the game, but the fact that we've been here, and done this before negates those new bonuses, so it's essentially a wash. It's a solid, solid game, but EA didn't change enough in my opinion. They left too much alone. We need some new courts, a few more than the handful of songs that we get, and definitely some more variety in the Gamebreaker Level 2s.

While it may have a little too much in common with the previous game in the series for some of the more-casual NBA Street fans to swallow, NBA Street Vol. 2 is a great game.

Any fan of basketball who isn't necessarily sold on the complexities of your average NBA simulation will find plenty to love here.

Updating an arcade sports title for a sequel can be a tricky proposition. Since the genre doesn't always attract the hard-core simulation fan, updated rosters and other tweaks normally associated with more-serious sports games usually go unappreciated. But straying too far from the original formula may alienate the existing fans. NBA Street Vol. 2 is a textbook case of how to update a game like this--it makes a few solid improvements to the series' gameplay and visuals, and, most importantly, it doesn't break anything that was great in the first game.

With all these refinements, an improved Edit-A-Baller mode, a lengthy Be A Legend single-player game and all-four-player support, NBA Street 2 feels like the game the first one should have been - even though that was great.

NBA Street Vol. 2 will not satisfy your cravings for the NBA experience -- both Sega and EA SPORTS already offer the complete package in this department with their respective professional titles. NBA Street is the game to get if you have a casual interest in basketball, are looking for a great four-player title to play with friends or roommates, or if you want a simple diversion in between more serious contests. It's not a title that has you playing for weeks on end, but it will be pulled off the shelf more often than you initially thought, if only to experience the fluid control and opportunity to trash talk opponents while initiating some of the most outlandish moves ever witnessed in a hoops game.

Liebhaber schneller und unkomplizierter Basketballaction kommen an NBA Street Vol. 2 nicht vorbei. Aufgrund der geringen Spieltiefe kann das Spiel allerdings nicht dauerhaft begeistern. Der Mehrspieler-Modus trumpft aber so richtig auf und garantiert spaßige und unterhaltsame Matches mit allem, was dazugehört. Inklusive verbaler Sticheleien. Technisch haben die Entwickler ordentliche Arbeit abgeliefert. Die seltenen Clipping-Fehler trüben den grafischen Gesamteindruck ein wenig.

So at first sight this gamelooks really cool, but I don'tthink that any serious gamer could play this game longer than a couple of hours.
