Conclusion: While I’m still not convinced that football can be considered a “street” sport, I give EA kudos for making a good first stab at a football game that is far different from anything before it.
Excerpt: Graphics: Street isn't going to blow many people's minds graphically, but it does a good job. Fourteen guys on the field, pretty well detailed, all with subtle customizations, and frequently all visible at the same time.
Pros: Highly customizable, Deep gameplay, Lots to unlock
Cons: Uneven game features, Steep difficulty in Challenge mode, Very few features at start of game

Excerpt: “NFL Street” is the first edition of what will likely become another yearly series by EA Big. This high octane, hard hitting, showboating game tweaks the NFL rule book to come up with a game that’s focus is fun and tosses EA’s “Madden” football style aside.
Conclusion: Wer den Einstieg in die Footballthematik sucht, dem sei gesagt, dass es komplett ohne Vorkenntnisse auch in NFL Street schwer wird, sich schnell zurecht zu finden, auch wenn das Spiel sicherlich der einsteigerfreundlichste Titel in Reihen der Xbox-Footballspiele ist.
Excerpt: Ab auf die Straße Da Sie bei " NFL Street " nicht in herkömmlichen Stadien spielen, müssen Sie auch nicht sehr auf die offiziellen Regeln des Spiels Rücksicht nehmen. Stattdessen gibt es nur eine Regel: "10 Yards innerhalb von 4 Spielzügen erreichen", dann um das Ei in die gegnerische Touchdown Zone...
