Summary: You know how Michael Jordan loves to fly through the air, as he is gonna slam in two, and stick out his tongue? That's how I feel when I play this game! I love it, living my Michael Jordan fantasy, as I cruise along on my local city bus, or BART. I just love it. No, I don't stick out my tongue when I play this game, but I still love to play it! I recommend this game for any "couch baller" who loves to slam it down to sounds of the street.
Summary: Ok, as yall might know me, im Gamer8. To the game. This game is sorta like the first NBA Street game for the PS2. It has some flaws, such as lighting. Also, at points of the game, you might say, is this game worth $50.00? Well, its worth about $30.00. 1.- Its not a good game for portability. 2.- Lighting is bad at times 3.-Can be hard for beginners. So I suggest that you must know what the first few NBA Street games are about before buying thsi title.
Summary: NBA Street Showdown is one of the first games I bought for the PSP and I wasn't disappointed. It has plenty of unlockable features and like its cousin on the PS2 'NBA Street V3' has plenty of hip-hop tracks to keep gamers entertained. The gameplay is fast and varied and it feels as though other players on other teams have enough AI to make it challenging but not overly-difficult.
Excerpt: "If you're like me then you like a review that's short, direct and down to the point, so.... The game is definately a good try of bringing a massive franchise to a smaller system. It has many features of the bigger console game and the controls are more similar to Street V.2 than V.3. The controls can be awkward, as you might expect from a console with less buttons but there is a good variety of tricks and skills to humiliate your opponents. ...
Pros: There are some great mini games and is similar to its console cousins !
Cons: The controls can be awkward and not very responsive and the team rosters are old .
Summary: This game is fantastic the graphics are astonishing and the gameplay is incredible a real winner .You can do some amazing stunts like incredibly high slam dunks aswell as some pritty amazing tricks like the rollover and the home remedy.Although some of the stuff is unrealistic it is overall a great game
