Summary: Parents need to know that the game features plenty or hard-hitting action, but it's not nearly as violent as a live NFL game -- even though much of action takes place on unforgiving surfaces like concrete. Players do not wear pads or helmets, but are able to quickly bounce back off the ground without blood and without even the slightest injury.
Excerpt: This was my first go-around with the NFL Street series, but I’ve got to say I was seriously impressed. Much like its NBA counterpart, NFL Street 2 captures all of the visual elements needed for a football game. First and foremost, the animations for the jukes, jumps, dives, and everything else are sweet. If you’ve never played any version of the Street series, NBA or NFL, everything is done over-the-top. The same can be said about the replication of the NFL players.
Excerpt: NFL Street 2 pits two teams of seven players head to head, and forces each player to play both offense and defense. Since defense is a distant second when it comes to Street 2's priorities, most of your players will likely be selected based on their offensive prowess, and you'll be hoping to simply out score your opponent. The playbook is small (compared to Madden), and it's broken down into passing, running, and trick plays.
Summary: NFL Street 2 is better then the previous title, and certainly well worth a purchase if you're after something a little more fun then normal NFL games. The main disappointment is lack of online gameplay.
Summary: Heavy Rain wird sicherlich nicht alle PS3-Spieler gleichermassen ansprechen - dafür bewegt sich der Titel zu weit abseits vieler gängiger Videospiel-Konventionen und Gameplay-Paradigmen. Doch eben dieser Mut zur Individualität machen das "Movie-Adventure" für all jene, die sich darauf einlassen, zu einem unvergesslichen Erlebnis!
Summary: Electronic Arts setzt auf Altbewährtes und betreibt beim zweiten Teil von 'NFL Street' vor allem Feintuning. Dennoch: Wer den Vorgänger nicht hat und nach einem einfachen Einstieg in die American Football-Welt Ausschau hält, liegt hier genau richtig.
