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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
