All of this complaint about story and frustration ends up being minimal, though, because of the airtight gameplay. There are too many wow! moments through the course of a game to not find this compelling. Longevity might be an issue, but add a multitap and some game-savvy friends and this one will keep casual gaming fans and NFL hardcorists busy until baseball's Opening Day.

In the original game, I always picked the players with the best speed ratings. My QB couldn't pass much of anything, but that didn't matter because my passes were almost always intercepted anyway. It took speed and superb evasive skills to win before. Vol. 2 changes everything by making each element more balanced. Passing is no more important than running; tackling is no more important than intercepting, etc. That's how it needs to be. I wanted an NFL Street sequel that forced me to think and strategize in new ways. EA listened.

NFL Street 2 follows the pattern of the Street games that have come before and the formula works again in my opinion. If you’re not playing this game with buddies regularly, then you’re not going to get half the fun out of it that you could be getting. The single player modes are great and I didn’t even mention the mini games like Crush the Carrier, that beloved childhood game that used to be known by another more colorful alliterative name before it became offensive in this era of Bravo Channel domination. If you’re used to buying football sims every summer looking for at least a roster update, then you’ll have no problem digging in those pockets for the second NFL Street game of 2004. You’re a football junkie so don’t fight it.

Although NFL Street 2 has managed to double the number of playable modes available for gamers, the large amount of recycled material and somewhat imbalanced or unnecessary tweaks make Street fail to live up to expectations. If you’ve never played the first title, this is a decent introduction to the series, but vets of the first could potentially rent this one to see if they’ll like the minor upgrades.

Don't' come to the Street looking for a Madden-type of strategy-first football game. This is pure fantasized urban jungle over-the-top football. It doesn't have the same high quality of the NBA Street series due to the more urban roots of street basketball versus street football, but for a good adrenaline rush of smash-mouth football, look no further than NFL Street 2.

NFL Street 2 is a great sequel to NFL Street, and shouldn’t be missed out by anyone who was a fan of the original NFL Street. Delivering more action then before while still retaining what the series is made popular for, NFL Street 2 looks to be just as successful as NFL Street. Also, the sheer volume of the game is immense in size, adding up to many hours of play time, especially for XBox owners with XBox Live. Even for GameCube owners there is a lot to be had here, and all of it is nicely implemented. EA has done a great job with the series thus far, and we can only hope that the NFL Street series remains strong. Highly recommended.

Arcade Fans kommen bei NFL Street 2 voll auf ihre Kosten. Simulationsfans sollten bei diesem Titel dagegen lieber die Finger vom Gamepad lassen. NFL Street 2 ist ein reinrassiges Arcade Vergnügen, das im Detail verbessert wurde. Die Spiel-Action wurde kompromisslos auf Spaß und spektakuläre Szenen getrimmt - wer bereit ist, sich auf diese im positiven Sinne "oberflächliche" Interpretation des Sports einzulassen, ist mit NFL Street 2 sehr gut bedient.

Das zweite NFL Street macht einen ausgewogeneren Eindruck als der Vorgänger und bietet dank vieler Spielmodi sowie freispielbarer Arenen und Teams auch eine ordentliche Langzeitmotivation. Leider geht es bei all der Action oft auch etwas chaotisch zu und in der Hitze des Gefechts wollen spektakuläre Tricks nicht immer so klappen, wie man sich das vorstellt. Für den Hit reicht es deswegen nicht ganz. Extrem spaßige und obendrein weitaus unkompliziertere Matches als bei den großen Football-Simulationen bekommt ihr aber allemal geboten.

NFL Street 2 proves once again that the sport of football can make a successful move over to the “street” scene, but there are many areas that need improvement if the series is going to prosper. The single-player game modes are still repetitive and only the most diehard baller will put the time in to fully complete the game. The new game modes (Own the City, NFL Gauntlet, etc.) add some depth, but they still boil down to doing a bunch of challenges and games over and over to build up your team. Multiplayer gameplay however is where NFL Street 2 shines. Whether you’re playing with a group of buds offline or take your game online, this is where most of your time should be spent. If you’re looking for an outlandish form of football to share with your friends, then NFL Street 2 will work quite nicely. Other sports gamers might want to give it a rent to see if its style fits their tastes.

GameCubeGaming Target
Overall, NFL Street 2 is a decent second installment to the NFL Street franchise. I was surprised to realize that it came out less than a year after the original came out, so I feel that they could have developed it a bit more instead of rushing to get it on shelves for Christmas. Features like customizable touchdown celebrations (the Randy Moss, anyone?) would have been awesome. NFL Street 2 is certainly fun and the new features are great, but the lack of online play hurts the GameCube version quite a bit. Nevertheless, it’s a solid game, and since EA owns the rights to NFL games, there won't be any other over-the-top alternatives.

The Sound & graphics are what make this game. Playing in a back street with your friends is not so much about the rules, it's about the “vibe” & having fun, this is where NFL Street 2 excels. Borrowing heavily from the ultra vivid hip-hop culture NFL Street 2 is “BAD”. Fat tunes all the way, excellent vocal taunts and expressions mixed with realistic street ambience. Graphically the venues are believable, the players individual and likable. Each player has his victory dance –like in fighting games - When it's cold you can see your players breathe and the fast-paced action is easy to understand and nice and clear. Overall if you like arcade sport and have a soft spot for street culture then you will love this game. If you are looking for the ultimate American football sim then there is more on offer from other titles.

Ultimately, NFL Street 2 is every bit better than the original, and in many shiny ways. The multiplayer is a blast, it looks great, the game modes are expanded exponentially over the first, and the game dances on the fine line of being fairly realistic without being too over-the-top crazy. We know the NFL will never shed its No Fun League image -- but this is a step forward for all those that prefer to high step their way into the end zone.

You should've seen the smile on my face when the game first loaded. "This is it," I said to myself. "The moment I've been waiting for has finally come." NFL Street 2: Unleashed is nothing short of amazing. If you've played the PS2, GameCube or Xbox version then you know exactly what I'm talking about. It might seem strange to deem a game a "must-buy" when it receives a score lower than 9.0. Normally I'd agree, but Unleashed doesn't get its praise for perfection. It gets its praise being the most addictive arcade-style sports game on the planet.

If you've already spent hours playing this game at home, then there's no reason to get this portable rendition. Sure, it's a great game of arcade football (the only football game currently for the PSP). However, you'll need to start from scratch here. If this is your first time with the game, then yes, this is a worthy purchase, one made better since it's portable. Just be sure your battery is fully charged before heading out with this on in the drive.

Eigentlich bietet NFL Street 2 gegenüber seinem Vorgänger ja eine ganze Reihe unterhaltsamer Neuerungen. Vor allem bei den Spielmodi wurde ordentlich aufgestockt. Trotzdem bleibt angesichts des hohen Preises und des in Europa wegrationalisierten Online-Modus‘ ein bitterer Beigeschmack. GameCube-Footballer gehen sogar völlig leer aus. Spielerisch und technisch haben die Straßen-Footballer ohnehin kaum Fortschritte gemacht und die aktualisierten Kader lassen einige wichtige Spieler vermissen. Nicht einmal das lästige Kantenflimmern der PS2-Version konnte man in den letzten zwölf Monaten reduzieren. Komisch auch, dass man das Spiel auf der einen Seite erneut nicht lokalisiert hat, auf der anderen aber ohne 60Hz-Modus anbietet. Wer auf Arcade-Football steht und öfter mal ein bis drei Gleichgesinnte zur Hand hat, wird zwar auch dieses Jahr angemessen unterhalten, vorwiegend solo spielende Besitzer des Vorgängers sollten sich die Anschaffung aber lieber zweimal überlegen.

The best part of NFL Street 2 is the online mode that allows you to play all of the game modes, as well as use your NFL Challenge team online. It is quite sad however that there are never that many people playing it though. All of this may sound like fun, but it keeps you interested for about a week or so. A perfect rental for any of those interested in trying NFL Street 2.

All in all, Unleashed reminds me a lot of the St. Louis Rams. A lot of flash, some potential, and even some great highlights from time to time, but in the end it just doesn't have the goods to be crowned the champ.

In the end, if you love the NFL Street series on the home consoles and you own a PSP, there is no reason why you should not add this to your current library. If anything, it will curb your football fix until August when the mighty Madden hits.

GameCubeGame Informer Magazine
This series’ mixture of showboating flash and primetime play is an intoxicating combo that hides its simple premise as a pick-up-and play, multiplayer-on-the-couch game. This brand of football was defined in the original NFL Street perhaps a little too well. I say that because it’s sequel time and all NFL Street 2 can come up with on the field is one new move.

If you enjoyed the NFL Street games you will enjoy NFL Street 2: Unleashed. Essentially what we have here is NFL Street 2, with a few extra features, for the PSP. Pleasingly the game is more deaf gamer friendly than its PlayStation 2 counterpart which is great news. On the whole it's a good game if you can suffer the chronic loading times. If you've played NFL Street 2 to death though then it's probably not worth picking up as the games are practically identical and there's only the Party Play mini-games that are different. If you're looking for an arcade style American football game to fill the gap until Madden arrives on the PSP then NFL Street 2: Unleashed is certainly worth a look.

NFL Street 2 Unleashed may be one of the least altered, if not the least altered, of all the console games ported to the PSP. And that ultimately works both for and against it. Graphically, it's tough to argue with a game that looks just about as good as its PS2 counterpart, and it's great that the same long list of play modes made it into this version. However, if you've played NFL Street 2 already on consoles, there's not a lot of reason to rush out and buy this one, because none of the new content is really all that enthralling. Ultimately, Unleashed is best served to those diehard NFL Street fans who absolutely want to play football on the go, as well as to those who didn't experience the original NFL Street 2 on consoles. If you fall into either of these categories, the game is certainly worth a look.

XboxGameSpot
Overall, NFL Street 2 is a good enough game, though barely anything has changed. It doesn't feel like it has been rushed, since it isn't buggy or broken in any way, but there's definitely a lack of proper maturation here that hinders the overall product. Unless you've never played the original NFL Street and you're intrigued by the concept, there's not really any singular, captivating reason why you should rush out to get NFL Street 2, as people who already played the original will be all too familiar with what the sequel presents. And, if you were one of those who played and enjoyed the original, you should probably rent Street 2 first, just to see if some of the few new things it offers really are enough to warrant a full-priced purchase.

Like so many other launch titles, Street is an instant sell to fans of the original release, and may not hold much interest for anyone disinterested the first time around. Still, it's an admirable port -- a perfect example of how to properly transfer a game to Sony's handheld. With a few control tweaks to take advantage of the hardware, the sport will really shine.

PSPGame Informer Magazine
You’d think that some of the bite-sized challenges in this game (the PSP edition even has some exclusive ones) would make it more conducive to the handheld, but I believe that no matter the system, it all goes back to gameplay. This series doesn’t have enough of it. The GameBreakers are unbalanced and the new non-interactive GameBreaker 2’s are shameful. Street 2 is fast, but it can be less than smooth in the control department when pulling off some of the style moves.

PlayStation 2PSX Extreme
While this review might lead you to believe otherwise, NFL Street 2 is a fun game - for a few hours. If you're playing the series for the first time, the game is certainly better than the first NFL Street, but it still lacks replay value. Unfortunately, for veterans of the series, there's so little new here that they might not even get a full weekend of enjoyment out of the game.

PSPWorth Playing
EA tried its hardest to give gamers a perfect recreation of the NFL Street franchise for play on the go. For the most part, they've succeeded, but unfortunately, the load times have the added effect of killing a lot of the joy that can be gained from playing this game. Note to EA: The PSP is a portable system. People are more likely to be picking up this system to play for a few minutes at a time, and then putting it down. They don't want to be spending most of their time staring at a line filling at the bottom of the screen. If you can get past the load times or are desperate for some pigskin action on the PSP, you'll find a lot to love in NFL Street 2 Unleashed. If you've played the console versions to death and are looking for a new experience, you won't find it here. NFL Street 2 Unleashed can only be recommended for the patient football enthusiast.

In all, NFL Street 2 is an excellent rental, perhaps as something to play during the Super Bowl halftime show (assuming you’re not going to be on the lookout for further “wardrobe malfunctions”, that is). However, there simply just isn’t enough substance here to justify a purchase, even for the novice football player. If you’re really looking for a football fix, just go ahead and buy ESPN NFL 2K5 instead; you’ll get a more complete package and the game will stand the test of time much, much better.

PSPGame Revolution
Though it's probably one of the better PSP sports games in its own right, NFL Street 2: Unleashed won't command much respect from anyone who has played the other NFL Street titles. While EA scored big with the original, each successive Street has felt more and more like the repetitive plays in the identical playbooks - rote exercises to be performed in the endless pursuit of bling.
