GameSpy (Feb 08, 2005)
From the new Trick Stick system to the amazingly deep career mode, nearly everything added to NBA Street V3 works perfectly. There are a few extremely minor problems with the game (mostly relating to the audio aspects), but there's no denying that this may very well be the greatest basketball game ever made, arcade or otherwise. After finishing the career mode for the first time, I found myself hopping right back in for another run, happy in the knowledge that I was in for a brand new experience the second time around. The street life might be tough, but I wouldn't want it any other way.

The best of the series by far, I would be surprised if there's a better arcade sports game released in 2005. From bouncing the ball off your opponent's noggin to draining a game-winning three, there is just so much opportunity to talk smack, to compete, and best of all, humiliate your friends by dunking on their heads, that I think this is a must-buy for gamers looking for a fun basketball game without having to worry about the differences between a Triangle and a Box formation.

NBA Street V3 is a game that is great in all areas, but perfect in none. Graphically, the decent player models could some work. The excellent soundtrack could’ve used more songs and less questionable edits, and a much less annoying announcer chiming in with comments. Online play is welcome, but not up to par with what’s being done with other sports games. There’s no great reason to play with your friends for any extended period, which is unfortunate. Surprisingly, the component this game absolutely nails is the one that has traditionally been its Achilles heel, single-player. Regardless of any faults this game has, it’s one of the best sports games on the market, sim or arcade.
For gamers who love sports games, and want to take a break from the norm, NBA Street V3 is a great game to pick up. V3 will also appeal to those who are only passive fans of basketball, because the arcade-style and feel of the game doesn’t require that you know all of the rules. Anyone is able to jump into action instantly, making V3 accessible for anyone, young or old. The new features in NBA Street V3 will also appeal to those that have tried previous versions of the game, and anyone with Xbox Live support will love challenging others across the country.

He shoots! He scores! War der zweite Teil der NBA Street-Serie eher ein mehr als gelungenes Update im Comic-Look, ist V3 die Erfüllung für alle Basketball-Fans: Schnelles, intuitives Gameplay, angereichert durch eine perfekte Stick-Steuerung der Tricks und aufgemotzt mit einem durchdachten Karriere-Modus. kann man das Pad nicht so einfach wieder weglegen. Beziehungen der Spieler untereinander müssen beachtet, euer Ruf nicht aus den Augen verloren und nicht zuletzt das Aussehen und die Fähigkeiten eures Spielers an die Bedürfnisse und eure persönliche Spielweise angepasst werden. Und dass mit mehreren Spielern der Punk so richtig abgeht, ist dann schon nicht mehr verwunderlich. NBA Street V3 ist das derzeit beste Funsport-Spiel am Markt und kann jedem empfohlen werden, der auch nur die leiseste Begeisterung für Ballsportarten aufbringen kann – auch wenn die europäischen Spieler wieder einmal das Online-Nachsehen haben.

NBA Street V3 could stand to be deeper in just about every area. However, for an arcade-style basketball game, that isn't a serious gripe. Fun and accessibility are the most important factors for a game of this class, and the solid implementation of the new Trick Stick makes NBA Street V3 one of the most entertaining, broadly playable basketball games ever made.

Overall, NBA Street V3 managed to improve upon Volume 2, which is a feat in itself. Although it isn’t perfect, most of the gamers that were looking forward to this game will enjoy it immensely. If you are looking for the game with the flashiest moves, the nicest dunks, the most replay value, the most features and some nice graphics, then don’t stop to think about it – cop NBA Street V3 today.
GameSpot (Feb 08, 2005)
It's been almost two years since the last iteration of the NBA Street franchise, Volume 2. While still a great game overall, NBA Street Vol. 2 wasn't quite the revelation its predecessor was. But now, with the release of NBA Street V3, it's clear that the developers at EA Sports Big clearly haven't been loafing in the off-season. The addition of online play (on the PS2 and Xbox) and a compelling single-player career mode, as well as improvements to the basic game mechanics, make NBA Street V3 the new gold standard of arcade-style basketball games.

Overall there isn't much wrong with this game. It has taken the Street theme to a new realm and added more game modes and online play. What more could you want from a street basketball sim?
On occasion, your CPU opponents will make some silly mistakes along the lines of using a GameBreaker to shoot a three-pointer during a dunk-only contest, but the AI is still mighty impressive. Rather than going the way of the dodo like other arcade basketball franchises, Street continues to gain momentum and is more desirable now than it has ever been.

Die abgedrehte Basketball Serie ‚NBA Street’ geht in die dritte Runde. Vor allem das actionreiche Gameplay sorgte bisher auch bei Sportmuffeln für große Begeisterung. Unmögliche Tricks, viele original Lizenzen und eine feine Technik bereiteten allen Zockern ein tolles Spiel- und Sporterlebnis. Nun wollen Iverson, Bryant & Co erneut für Zauberei auf den Courts sorgen. Wir verraten euch ob es geklappt hat…
Between the various editions, I'd personally go with the Xbox's stellar graphics package, but they shine on all three. Heck, you may even have to buy the game twice, since the GC has Mario. I know, shocker...Street that one of the signs of the apocalypse?
Once the ball gets rolling, NBA Street V.3 is one of the most entertaining sports titles out there. EA Sports BIG has really hit a high note in game development with these extreme-arcade sports titles, including NFL Street and the upcoming FIFA Street. NBA Street V3 is a welcome update to the pioneer of this success, and it is one of the best basketball titles out there.

Si on note un jeu en fonction des nouveautés d'un épisode à l'autre, disons que NBA Street V3 est un bon titre, cet opus apportant un nouveau concours de dunk, un gameplay plus technique ou encore la création de votre propre terrain. Si on note un titre en fonction du plaisir qu'il procure, NBA Street V3 est un vrai petit joyau. Le graphisme est chatoyant, le fait de personnaliser votre joueur en fonction des Points Street amassés vous incite à jouer encore et encore et le plaisir de jeu est total, pour peu que vous aimiez le genre arcade. Certains pourront regretter l'absence d'un mode Online mais hormis cette petite absence, le résultat final est impeccable de bout en bout. Tous en coeur : I believe i can fly, i believe i can touch the sky.
X-Power (Apr 15, 2005)
Dus ja, beste lezers, EA heeft opnieuw een sequel op de markt gebracht. Ze hebben het weer voor mekaar gekregen om relatief weinig veranderingen te vermommen als een gloednieuw spel. NBA Street V3 is misschien een beetje overbodig voor mensen die het vorige spel al intensief gespeeld hebben en ja, dit doet toch weer vermoeden dat EA Big eigenlijk geen haar anders is dan Regular EA. Maar ondanks al die opmerkingen blijft dit gewoon een erg leuk spel voor basketbalfans of gewoon mensen die graag een simpel maar fun sportspel spelen. Had EA de Live modus intact gelaten, en wat meer variatie qua geluid aan deze game toegevoegd, dan zou ik het misschien zelfs een 9 hebben gegeven. Maar nog steeds een aanrader dus!
