Mit FIFA Street hat man die Street Familie um eine weitere interessante Serie erweitert. Fußballfans, die sich an spektakulĂ€rer Ballbehandlung nicht satt sehen können und dabei gerne auf Teile des Reglements verzichten, sind bei diesem Spiel gut aufgehoben. Einsteigerfreundlich und mit cooler AtmosphĂ€re kommen Arcadefans durchaus auf ihre Kosten. FĂŒr den Nachfolger wĂŒnschen wir uns eine Online-UnterstĂŒtzung und einen noch umfangreicheren Einzelspielermodus.

Pour un entrée dans le genre, EA Sports Big réalise une belle cascade. En effet, FIFA Street se révÚle dynamique, prenant, et véhiculant vraiment une bonne dose de "fun". Souffrant d'un certain manque d'innovations et de petits détails trahissant parfois un manque de finition, ce titre possÚde néanmoins un potentiel ludique assez imposant, qu'il serait dommage d'ignorer. En ces beaux jours qui reviennent, voici un choix chaleureux qui s'impose. En tout, cas, je retourne ridiculiser Roberto Carlos.

Moins surprenant que NBA Street 3 et surtout moins maßtrisé, le jeu d'EA Big se veut pourtant trÚs amusant et devrait satisfaire les amateurs de ce sport. Fifa Street est un premier essai concluant.

Die mitunter fragwĂŒrdigen KI-Aktionen der Akteure und Probleme bei der Kollisionsabfrage sorgen fĂŒr einige Frustmomente. SpĂ€testens wenn das Gameplay nur noch in ein GrĂ€tschmassaker ausartet und sich der TorhĂŒter mal wieder dumm anstellt, wandert der Spielspaß in den Keller. Schade eigentlich, denn das Herumexperimentieren mit den ansehnlichen Trick-Moves macht gerade am Anfang noch viel Spaß, doch muss man leider schnell einsehen, dass nicht durch Tricks, sondern hauptsĂ€chlich durch unfaire Aktionen die Spiele gewonnen werden – oder aber, ihr habt eine ĂŒberragende Mannschaft, die im Karrieremodus meiner Meinung nach viel zu frĂŒh ermöglicht wird. Unterm Strich bleibt ein mittelmĂ€ĂŸiges und belangloses Herumgekicke, das weder der aufstrebenden Fifa-Serie noch den anderen Street-Sportspielen aus gleichem Hause das Wasser reichen kann.

Gaming Target (6.6 out of 10)

The most popular sport in the world is soccer, however this is not the case in the U.S. The average American can probably name only two soccer players in the world: England’s David Beckham and Ronaldo of Brazil. Americans prefer sports like football, baseball, basketball and even hockey. When FIFA Street was released a few weeks ago, it is apparent that EA BIG was not catering to the tastes of a mainstream American. On the contrary, they were actually targeting a mostly European market. Now I’m certainly not a big soccer fan, but being a huge fan of the Street series by EA BIG (including the NBA Street and NFL Street series), I decided to give FIFA Street a try.

Game Informer Magazine (6.5 out of 10)

If the passion of soccer leads people to violence, then I would watch out if I were FIFA Street – the game’s liable to make some people mad. At its highest level, soccer is all about the imagination and skill of the players. Street doesn’t come close to conveying either. Pulling off the deke moves is as automatic as hitting one button. These skill moves instead should tap into your own prowess as a gamer, similar to Tony Hawk. Since a lot of these tricks are done in your normal soccer game, what’s the impetus for me to play Street? If everything was done with a more fantastical flair, then the game might actually distinguish itself. For example, the GameBreakers are nothing more than shots on goal with extra zip. Since there is no customization or earning of moves, everyone pulls the same dekes – which is an insult to the real-life players.

GameZone (6.5 out of 10)

Fun for a rental's worth of time. After that it's pretty boring. Compare it to the hours of replay value that NFL Street and NBA Street provide and you'll see that there is no comparison. FIFA Street is worth renting for all who love the Street games, regardless of the genre. You're going to walk away a little disappointed though, but extremely glad that you decided not to shell out the full amount to own it.

GameSpot (6.5 out of 10)

As the first entry in what will almost certainly become a series, FIFA Street is disappointing, but it is definitely a better game than the sum of its parts. It's not a difficult game to pick fault with, as you've probably gathered, but it can also be fun for a short while when played with the right people. Should you go out and buy a copy? No. Should you keep an optimistic eye out for a FIFA Street 2 announcement in the future? Definitely.

Die NBA Street-Reihe hat eigentlich alles richtig gemacht. Gutes SpielgefĂŒhl, feine Zusatzoptionen und die richtige Platzierung der so treffend benannten “Gamebreaker“. FIFA Street hingegen, fĂŒhlt sich ein wenig wie der böse, haarige und komisch riechende Zwilling seiner BasketballbrĂŒder an: Wenn ihr auf dem Platz steht und angepfiffen wird, stellt sich beileibe kein brasilianisches “Futabol“-Feeling ein - irgendwie wirkt das Ganze, als wĂŒrden sich acht Basketballspieler treffen und krampfhaft versuchen, diesen komischen Lederball mit ihren FĂŒĂŸen in den Holzkasten mit dem davor herumhĂŒpfenden Typen zu befördern. Außerdem machen die Gamebreaker keinen Sinn mehr. Ist schon super, wenn man durch wilde Trickserei seine Special-Leiste aufbaut und dann bei dem ach so tollen Breaker-Schuss sehen muss, dass der Ball durch den Kopf des Torwarts fliegt.

D'abord, Fifa Street est original, aguichant, et bien rĂ©alisĂ©. Mais son gameplay trop visuel et trop arcade s’essouffle avec les parties.

Worth Playing (5.6 out of 10)

Street games are meant to be different. Unrealistic. Simple. Playable. For that last category, FIFA Street fails. For the rest of the categories, the game achieves them with an incredible lack of grace. The game is different, as it covers a style of soccer gameplay rarely presented in videogame form, although this time through a silly marketing filter. Simple in that players really can pick up and play it, although they will be hard-pressed to find much fun here. And as for being playable, well, the game is such a bore than most gamers would prefer to let this one rot in the closet than pull it out for another go in their 'Cube. Passable graphics and its place in a revered series might attract gamers to this game, but don't be fooled: FIFA Street totes a gargantuan bag of tricks, but it is little more than a one-trick pony.

IGN (5.5 out of 10)

This game feels poorly thought out and entirely based on a trick system that could translate well to soccer, but doesn't here. The progression scheme is obviously shifted over from the other Street games, and it holds the game together well enough, but the ball physics, poorly executed mo-cap, animations, and the character controls are all awkward, frustrating, and off-putting. What's more, the trick system, while OK, dominates the style of play to such a degree that FIFA Street doesn't really play like soccer at all.

Diehard GameFan (5 out of 10)

FIFA Street is a game that taken in small doses can be fun. Multiplayer is a bit lackluster quite frankly, but the single player experience can be a blast, especially if you enjoy screwing with the computer. There is a certain amount of glee that can be taken in trying to run over a team with a high score. Also, using the trick system to fake out the computer will bring a smile to your face especially if you can pull off something off of the wall. The game gets old quick though. The lack of variety in the game, coupled with the fact that unless you’re a FIFA fan you won’t know anyone except David Beckham, you know, the guy that married one of the Spice Girls. It’s a shame too. With some more variety in moves, ways to score, and defensive, this game could have become a nice little party game. Instead, at most, it’s just a renter.

Pro-G (5 out of 10)

EA really are in an enviable position in the industry. They've got the licences, they've got the franchises, they've got the game engines and they've got a fair few talented people working in their offices. Quite where any of those people were when FIFA Street was being bungled out the door is anyone's guess because given the Street template, the FIFA engine and talent that obviously resides at the company (look no further than the NBA Street franchise for evidence) this game is an unpolished and unfortunate release.

GameSpy ( )

It's easy to see why the developers at EA chose to put the Street spin on the game of soccer. Tricks are a natural part of the game, as are exciting flying kicks and dramatic one-on-one matchups. However, one can't help but feel like FIFA Street was rushed out the door to capitalize on the recent successes of the NBA and NFL games. The AI is shoddy, ball physics are often laughable, and, worst of all, there's no online play for any of the systems. Still, you can be sure that the game is a building block of sorts, and we'll be seeing more FIFA Street action in the future. If the developers can improve on this game's shortfalls while keeping the strong points intact, there might be better games in the future. For now, though, soccer fans are better off playing a few more seasons in Winning Eleven 8 or FIFA Soccer 2005.
