FIFA Street

2 September 2013
  • Summary: The somewhat mythologized sub-genre called street soccer -- as presented by FIFA Street -- is hedonistic and excessive, with a strong tilt toward showboating and theatrics. It’s puzzling, then, that EA Sports decided to use Lionel Messi for the game’s cover art. Messi is efficient and graceful; Street is abrasive and flamboyant. His natural talent was nurtured by, and continues to flourish at, FC Barcelona, which is one of the most group-oriented teams in the world.

FIFA Street review

24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Lionel Messi surveys the situation and decides to act. From a standing position protecting the ball from Sergio Ramos, he starts to juggle it; first with his feet, then knees. Seconds later, he spins while kneeing the ball over Ramos’ head, catching the World Cup-winning defender leaning a quarter-step in the wrong direction. In a flash, Leo is past him. With 10 meters between himself and the goaltender, he sidesteps right then deftly kicks in the opposite direction.
  • Pros: Deep trick mechanics, Variety of game types, Nifty online integration
  • Cons: Animation and collision problems, Not-so-great audio presentation, Lackluster defending

FIFA Street game review

Boys' Life magazine
6 June 2012
  • Excerpt: There’s no doubt about it. When playing FIFA Street, I was surprised at how I really got inside the game. For a game full of the process of leveling up so you can play tougher teams, that’s an accomplishment. Here’s how they make FIFA Street a very good game: The developers pay so much attention to detail, you often feel like you’re living the life of an amateur soccer player.
  • Pros: Fun simulation. Great level design makes you want to play more. Jump in for one game or go on World Tour.
  • Cons: Animations should be more varied. Occasional screen freeze online. Can be very difficult to win.

  • Excerpt: I am not a talented footballer. Anyone who has ever seen me on the field of play will tell you that I’m not a Lionel Messi so much as a Carlton Palmer; effortlessly turning basic football skills into the greatest of chores. I send the simplest of passes three yards either side of my target, my first touch is so ineffective you would think my boots were made of dolly mixtures and the last time I got a shot on target I was downing vodkas in Derby city centre.

  • Conclusion: The game is deep and focuses on beating the man in front of you. It's like having a pickup game of soccer somewhere except this time you can actually pull off the tricks that the pros use. Grab a pal and have a blast.

Expert Review

Snackbar Games
5 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The game’s designed to reward players who really get into it, with replay sharing, leaderboards, integration into EA’s Football Club system and ranked online seasons. There are also real teams in the game, though never before in a game have we felt so little desire to use them. Why would you, when you can use your custom team and level it up? Still, fans have the option of using famous players, and this could be more of a thing with competitive online play.
  • Pros: Nice polish and aesthetic, control depth, creative online implementation
  • Cons: Steep learning curve for a Street game, limited mode variety
