Excerpt: Ever since Codemasters announced the return of Sensible Soccer it has been an exciting time in the football genre. If you wanted an alternative to the two big ones or have been disillusioned at the painstaking realism of recent football games, then the return of the adored series is sure to be worth lacing your boots up for.
Excerpt: As much as you want something to be true, you often can't delude yourself forever. I believe that Spurs will make the Champions League next season and finally become a force in European football. I'm really hoping it turns out like that, but chances are that reality will come crashing down on me mid-way through the season. This is Spurs after all. Anyway, this rambling has a point.
Conclusion: Sensible Soccer 2006 retains that style – simple, quick (although not as quick as the original) and a lot of fun. The whole game is controlled with just the left analog stick (to move), and the X, Circle and R1 buttons (for pass, shoot and sprint).

Pros: Old school gameplay given a modern polish is great fun, Multiplayer games are a blast
Cons: Basic presentation., Lack of depth for single players

Game after game revealed itself to be just like the one before (difficult second Jamiroquai album track syndrome?). AI from the opposing team was hugely frustrating.
Conclusion: Hoewel ik in real-life nog steeds niet zo’n grote basketbalfan ben, vind ik NBA Street Vol. 2 een fantastisch spel, dat momenteel zijn gelijke niet kent. Uitgebreide modes bieden urenlang speelplezier, superhandige controls laten je in de kortste keren geweldige tricks uitvoeren, enz. Ik kan hier nog uren doorgaan met het opsommen van alle schitterende eigenschappen van dit spel, maar daarvoor bestaat er een tabelletje onderaan.
