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.

With EA’s own Madden series of simulation football games consistently ranking at the top of the videogame sales charts, it seems like the arcade football sub-genre has taken a backseat to the real deal. Sure Midway’s Blitz games have kept the fire burning, but that franchise has grown more than a bit long-in-the-tooth.

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.

Worth Playing
I'm going to be straight up honest with you good folks for a minute. I don't play video football. Rather, I haven't played it since the (good ol') days of Tecmo Super Bowl back on the NES. Heck, I still have fond memories of 10 Yard Fight; back when the players moved in tandem around your quarterback. After those days, I fell out of love with video football; heck, video versions of traditional sports in general. This can probably all be blamed on a certain plumber and hedgehog, and then later on I fell into the vast, sticky web of fighting games that I am just now pulling myself out of.

So, it’s first and ten, and the quarterback calls a quick pass to the flat. You run up to the line and eye a cornerback who just glares at you behind his shades. The ball is snapped, and you start your route. As his pocket collapses, the quarterback launches the ball behind his back into your hands. Stutter-stepping away from your defender, you break down the sideline for a few yards before you get rocked into a chain link fence by the safety. But you’re stronger than that, so you bounce off the barrier and hurdle the back’s outstretched hands. As you spin the football on your finger and high step into the end zone, the biggest decision on your mind is whether to talk smack or break into that new dance you’ve been practicing.

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...

Während Freunde des realistischen Footballsports ob der fehlenden Taktikkomponente pikiert die Nase rümpfen, bietet das seichte Gameplay Neulingen einen leichten Einstieg in den American Football. Allerdings haben es die Entwickler mit den Fumbles und Interceptions etwas übertrieben, denn fast in jedem Spielzug wechselt der Ballbesitz. Die beschränkte Auswahl an Spielzügen sorgt darüber hinaus nach einer Weile für gepflegte Langeweile, wenn man sich erst mal an den coolen Moves der NFL-Stars satt gesehen hat. Insgesamt passt das überdrehte Street-Gameplay für den Bereich Basketball einfach besser als beim Football. Wer es spektakulär und unkompliziert mag, sollte NFL Street eine Chance geben. Alle anderen sind mit ESPN NFL Football, nicht nur wegen der Xbox-Live-Unterstützung, besser bedient.

First, there was Madden NFL. And it was good, but it had lots of rules and players, and eventually it became a religion. Then there was NFL Blitz, and it was good, but it lost its way, forgetting its arcade roots and the joy of simplicity. But now there is NFL Street, which offers true harmony between arcade and simulation football games, but with more attitude than both of them put together. Oh, and it?s fun, too.

Arcade football just isn't what it used to be. Since Madden and ESPN have defined accessible sim play, even the once-mighty Blitz has taken a backseat to realistic ball. It's come to a point where you almost need to pick up a rugby title to get that down and dirty feel. EA knows the score, though, and with the arrival of the long-awaited NFL Street, it's time for arcade football to rise again. It's not as polished or flashy as the NBA equivalent, but for a first effort NFL Street is a damn good time, with better multiplayer than anyone else.

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.

NFL Street is een erg vermakelijk, maar ook een beetje slecht gebalanceerd, spel. Mensen die al eerder NFL games of Street games hebben gespeeld, hebben zeker het voordeel in deze NFL Street. Maar al bij al is dit spel wel een aankoop waard voor iedereen die weg is van sportgames en dan vooral de "extreme" varianten ervan. NFL Street houdt me nu toch al een tijdje aan het scherm gekluisterd, al vrees ik dat de NFL Challenge mode de enige is die mijn interesse blijft vasthouden. Maar leuk was het alleszins wel, en het beloof veel goeds voor de onvermijdelijke NFL Street Vol.2 !!

NFL Street is by no means a complete success, but we doubt this will put EA off, and as we all know NBA Street didn't really get into its stride until the sequel, there might be a lot more to come from this particular take on helmeted footie.
