NBA Street – Consumer Guide

Chi Kong Lui's picture

Parents, NBA Street has the ghetto playground mentality, but none of the excessive profanity that is commonly associated with it. The "show-up or get shown-up" non-team oriented superstar attitude that the game emphasizes probably isnt the ideal sports mantra that you want your child to pick up, but as far as the videogames are concerned, its all pretty lighthearted and heaps of fun to play. 

Fans of arcade-style basketball games like NBA Jam and NBA Hoopz will simply love NBA Street. It takes the genre to all new heights and its an absolute blast to play despite having a minimal amount of features and options.

More serious hoops fans that prefer their basketball videogames simulate the sport more realistically will probably want to stay away from this one, but I would ask any basketball fan to at least give NBA Street a try. The controls and game engine is so good that despite all the arcade craziness, theres still a decent game of basketball being played here. Simulation fans might still be impressed with the overall package.

Fans of multiplayer sports games beware. For some reason, the developers of NBA Street thought including only a two-player versus mode would be enough. Dont plan on teaming up or setting up group tournaments with buddies on this title.
