Step up, play the courts, become a legend, then... well... find a new game.

Summary: I absolutely loved NBA Street 2 on the PS2. 1 and 3 where OK, but 2 was the best. It's almost like EA Sports took the concept of NBA JAM, with all the crazy dunks, no fouls, containing not just the rosters of current NBA teams, but legends as well. The game was almost perfect. Now EA have taken the Street games to the next level of graphics for the PS3. Apparently this is the first game to utilize HD graphics on the PS3.
Summary: In the vein of NBA Jam, NBA Street Homecourt is an over-the-top arcade style game. Being an arcade game is not a good or bad thing in itself, it's merely a style. However, this game is more style than substance. If you like to do ridiculous dunks over and over again, do fancy dribbles with the ball for no real reason, and sink 3s from halfcourt, you may like this game. If you actually want to play basketball, you probably won't enjoy it as much.
Summary: As a pure basketball sim, this game falls flat behind its rivals this year. In terms of gameplay, the game controls pretty well and looks pretty good. Problem is, the whole "the life" feature - while it has some good cutscenes and interesting stories, it's really not all that exciting. You have a few key moments you have to play into, but overall it's just kind of meh. It's a rental at best in my opinion. I also have issues with the roster system.
Summary: I have to admit, this is the worst streets yet. I dont think this game was worth the $9 I spent on it. Alot of good deep poetry and vibing soulful Hip Hop; but if your not buying it for that, I suggest sticking with the classics. Thanx for reading.
Summary: I am a big fan of NBA Street Vol 2 and was expecting NBA Street Homecourt to be great...it wasn't. NBA Street Homecourt for the PS3 absolutely stinks. I played it once and sold it. It's not playable. Get NBA 2K7 instead.
