Conclusion: Unfortunately, RoboBlitz is also a game of frequent dying. Especially in the Noed battles, the slightest wrong move can put you into a pool of lava or in the stream of enemy rockets, and though there are a few wrench icons (which clear your damage gauge), they’re not always in reach when you need...
Excerpt: FIFA Street 2 is EA's second attempt at taking the flashy nature of football and turning it into its own game. While last year's game sold well and seemed to please console owners looking for an alternative football game, it wasn't received all that well by the video game press.
Excerpt: Most sports gamers have a love or a hate of Electronic Arts. Their lack of real progression in sports games has been disappointing over recent years. That lethargy can be found in the past as well. Fifa Street 2 is on the PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube but not worth much of a mention.

Conclusion: FIFA Street 2 plays much less like a soccer game than last year’s title thanks to its increased emphasis on tricks and earning points and gamebreakers. Thankfully this game does offer a few more game types than what was in the original and that helps to keep it feeling fresh for as long as possible.
