Excerpt: FIFA Street 3 makes an excellent first impression. After spending a few minutes with the game and admiring the flashy moves and caricature representations of some of the best footballers in the world, it's easy to believe that EA has created the first great FIFA Street title.
Conclusion: All of which makes this another lacklustre prospect for arcade-football fans. It isn't like EA is incapable of pulling off this style of game either, with NBA Street crafting a well-beaten path for an arcade sports title that oozes playability, depth and polish. It just doesn't work here though.
Summary: Featuring all new authentic tricks, FIFA Street 3 provides new gameplay experiences by making over-the-top moves and skills even bigger in this fast-paced sequel, now on the next-gen platforms.
Excerpt: It’s sort of surprising that FIFA Street 3 is the best yet in the series, because it’s by no means a must-buy even for even the most hardcore soccer fans (or football for those of you outside of the US).
Conclusion: FIFA Street 3 plays a more enjoyable game of street soccer than any of its predecessors, but the lack of anything resembling a career mode with player and team progression really hurts the single-player experience.
Pros: Great visual style, Good multiplayer options, Another superb soccer soundtrack from EA Trax.
Cons: Not enough single-player content, Repetitive gameplay.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is What it might take is just one look at the cover of FIFA Street 3 for you to either get excited or get completely turned off. Peter Crouch, the first of three men on the cover is tall, slim and already anticipating your long crosses to head some right home.
Excerpt: So far, EA BIG titles for the PlayStation 3 have been hit and miss. There was NBA Street Homecourt, a definite hit, and then there was NFL Tour, a miss. FIFA Street is EA's next major arcade franchise that deals with a popular sport, and its third entry has arrived.
