Synopsis: Stylistic soccer returns to Xbox 360 with FIFA Street. Designed using the same engine that powers EA's FIFA Soccer 12, FIFA Street emphasizes nimble dribbling and trick moves designed to fake out or embarrass opponents. The fancy footwork is not limited to the ground, either, with aerial skills that allow you to perform acrobatic feats of agility to get by defenders. More than 50 skill moves are included as you compete in over 35 international venues, from simple parking lots to the streets of the world's largest cities. The World Tour story mode lets you create a custom team and gradually upgrade attributes and unlock new skill moves and dribbling styles. You'll also choose from an assortment of match types, including Panna Rules, Freestyle, Futsal, and Last Man Standing formats. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide

To successfully reboot a dormant franchise, you need to deliver what worked from previous games and fix what didn't. The developers of FIFA Street have, by and large, accomplished this goal. As with other titles in the Street series, a large part of the appeal is creating a character from scratch, assembling a ragtag team, and taking on other scrappy teams to improve your skills and abilities until you are ready to take on the best of the best. That sense of progression is an addictive part of the action, but what the developers have changed is significant. Instead of relying on over-the-top acrobatics and arcade-style power-ups, FIFA Street strives for a more realistic approach to street football or soccer. While that may sound boring to those who enjoyed the high-octane action from earlier titles, the authentic moves you can execute with your players are no less amazing. The developers have given players near 1:1 control over their athlete's feet by holding down a trigger and using the analog stick in various motions. The first time you enter "street ball control," as it's called, you'll stand in place, whipping and weaving the ball around your legs simply because it looks cool and feels amazing. Once you start using these techniques on the move, you start to appreciate the amount of technique required to play the game the way it should be played. You'll sprint, flick the ball over the head of a defender, juggle in place, and eventually learn flashier moves like bicycle kicks. The controls take time to master; you'll initially stop and go in jarring bursts like someone learning how to drive a car, but you'll steadily improve as you get more matches under your belt. And there are plenty of matches in the game's World Tour mode, which has you creating a custom team and traveling to various destinations across the globe to compete in tournaments and special events. There are six match types in total, each offering different rules and play styles. Win a match and you'll be able to level up your team's athletes and unlock various clothing options to personalize your squad. The biggest knock on FIFA Street is its lack of options compared to other sports games. The content is focused on a handful of modes, but nothing offers the same amount of depth found in the World Tour. In Hit the Streets you can choose to play a single match with custom rules, while Online involves competing in ten-game seasons or unranked matches. You also only have two camera angles while playing the game, so there's considerable room for improvement in the game's presentation. Ultimately FIFA Street should be judged at how well it shakes things up for those yearning for a new twist on a familiar franchise, and in this regard, it's a success. Not in terms of play modes or options, but through its play mechanics and controls. Your dream of becoming the next Lionel Messi is now in reach. ~ All Game Guide
