The Video Game Critic
If you don't think NFL Street is an absolute blast, you must not be a sports fan, because this game is unreal. It redefines the term "smash-mouth football", with no-holds-barred gameplay, body-crunching hits, and an unprecedented level of trash talking and hot-dogging. This game is NFL Blitz on steroids. And despite the fact that it's made by Electronic Arts, this is NOTHING like Madden.

Next Level Gaming
NFL Street is the latest game to be released under the EA Sports Big brand. The Big brand is the extreme division of EA Sports, and it includes titles like the SSX series and the NBA Street series. If you ever played any of the games from these series, you know what to expect from NFL Street, a fun and over-the-top type of game. NFL Street throws the NFL rules out the window, and juices up the hits we see on Sundays. It doesn’t stop there, you will also see plenty of showboating and celebrations that are frowned upon in the NFL, and you will witness some very spectacular plays. NFL Street redefines the extreme football genre.

Sports games are a key component to most consoles. If there are enough high quality sports games on your console then you know you will succeed in some level. EA has one of the biggest market shares of sports games on all consoles currently available. The majority of their sports games fall under the “simulation/real life” sports games. Since the release of this generation of consoles they have been releasing more “arcade and over the top” sports games, under the brand “EA Big” which have really fleshed out all of the genres. Their latest game under the EA Big title is NFL Street, and it is one of the best football games I have played in a long time. Read on to find out more!

4th and goal from the trash can, McNabb's your man behind center, Vick's out wide, and The Fridge isn't just in the backfield, he is the backfield. As you scroll through your playbook, you can run a double reverse to Must-See Mike, call an option with Donovan and the big man from the Midway, or maybe even a running back pass to show off the Fridge's arm. These are the types of decisions that make NFL Street so fun, and to make things better, no matter what play you draw up in the sand, the game is so much about improvisation, laterals, flea flickers, and Gamebreakers, the play you pick in the huddle is never quite run to design, and that's a good thing, a very good thing.

NFL Street ist für Arcade Fans nicht nur ein cooles Ei, sondern auch eine harte Nuss. Wer pure Action ohne geistige Anstrengung sucht, ist mit diesem Titel nicht gut beraten. Der Weg in die Endzone führt gerade bei hohem Schwierigkeitsgrad, über die Wahl einer guten Taktik. Hinzu kommt, dass grundlegende Kenntnisse des Football Regelwerks vorausgesetzt werden. Wen das alles nicht abschreckt, der bekommt ein spannendes und unterhaltsames Sportspiel geboten, das den Spieler gleichermaßen fordert und zum Lachen animiert.

Back in 2001, when the PlayStation 2 was still in its infancy and not yet hitting its stride, EA Sports Big released NBA Street, to rave reviews and gave a rebirth of sorts to the dormant arcade basketball genre once owned by NBA Jam. The eventual sequel in 2003 was just as well-received, though not quite as noticed in what’s a crowded lineup of PS2 sports games. With the success of the NBA Street franchise, it seemed to be only a matter of time before EA went ahead with a street version of what’s easily the sport they know best – football.

Encore un succès pour EA BIG. Tout ce que le studio touche semble se transformer en bombe ludique. C'est à se demander si même un jeu de curling ne deviendrait pas passionnant une fois passé entre leurs mains. L'idée est lancée en tout cas.

When it comes to razzle-dazzle and fast-paced gameplay, NFL Street makes NFL Blitz look like a friendly game of flag football. Whether you're freezing the defense in its tracks with a glitzy Signature Style deke move or ramming a hapless quarterback's head into a brick wall, you really couldn't ask for a harder hitting release.

Doch trotz aller Kritik sollten American Football-Fans einen Blick auf die Arcade-Action rund um das Ei werfen. Der Einzelspieler-Modus ist durchdacht, wartet mit abwechslungsreichen Aufgaben auf euch und trotz der kleinen spielerischen Mängel macht es Spaß, sich mit seinem Team nach und nach Richtung Weltspitze zu kämpfen. Und für beinharte Mehrspieler-Duelle ist NFL Street ebenfalls geeignet. Um die Klasse von NBA Street zu erreichen, fehlt aber noch ein gutes Stück...

PSX Extreme
All in all, NFL Street is a fun game to play, but it does have a lot of flaws that will keep you from enjoying it like you did with NBA Street. The single player mode is frustrating and time consuming, but it's a necessary evil if you want to beef up your team to play online or against friends. If you've got some buddies to play with, and you're trying to pass the time until Madden comes out, then it's probably worth a purchase, but if you're a casual fan that's likely going to be playing alone most of the time, then a rental will suffice.

It seems like EA can't lose when it takes the ball to the street. The NBA Street titles instigated more PS2 installations than any two franchises combined, and it was only a matter of time before the NFL got into the game. With the inauguration of NFL Street, EA has created as immensely satisfying arcade football game, with huge offense and serious points going to the unbeatable multiplayer component.

NFL Street won’t be appreciated by everyone, and I can understand it. The sport isn’t very popular in Europe, but our American visitors will be very happy with NFL Street. Gamers who think Madden is a little bit too difficult can try this light version from EA. You must realise though, that NFL Street isn’t easy and it involves a lot of strategy. The title is deceptive and gamers who are unaware think they're buying a game which is easy to pick up. If you're not scared of some training, you'll be getting yourself a game with a lot of capacity with this title.

If you've been eagerly waiting for some fast paced, hard-hitting football, NFL Street delivers what you're looking for. With Midway having recently taken NFL Blitz away from its arcade roots in favor of a more simulation-based direction, there has been a gaping hole in the arcade football genre--one that EA Sports is now more than happy to fill with the newest addition to its arcade sports lineup, NFL Street. Developed by longtime Madden NFL Football house EA Tiburon, NFL Street borrows numerous core elements from EA's other Street franchise, NBA Street, and attempts to implement them into the game of football.

With Terrell Owens and Joe Horn trying to one-up each other in the TD celebration department – and the criticism both have drawn – the NFL can now officially be called the "No-Fun League." Given the sheer amount of taunting, trash talk, and actual fun being had in NFL Street, it’s almost surprising that the league has sanctioned it. If only there were refs you could take out at the knees.

I remember playing football on muddy grey days with my friends. And EA Big’s new NFL Street is nothing like that. For one thing we didn’t talk as much senseless smack; if we talked smack it was nice and personal. After all, we were all friends. Could I have known Steve’s mom so intimately otherwise? And we definitely didn’t have much style at all. And.. we played in the mud. Oooh mud, the great equalizer. That great brown bath made every tackle mightier and graced diving receivers with a pristine filth to be worn like a fearsome muddy mask.

Kastar bollen, perfekt nedtagning, kort löpning, touch down! Killen som gjorde mål ser ut som en frustande tjur, jag känner mig som ett geni och i bakgrunden vrålar Korn. Det här är ett amerikanskt fotbollsspel för mig.
