Better than the next two
While most people will prefer the next two NFL Street games, I tend to stick with this one. The simplicity of the menus, the gameplay and the team building tend to hook me and entice me to get straight to a game. But at the same time, as I get deeper and deeper into developing teams, I am forced to make myself change my players' clothes and upgrade certain stats. The game as a whole is so simple and there is no uniqueness compared to NFL Street 2 and NFL Street 3, but the simplicity (in my opinion) triumphs over the unneeded amount of "new" and the seemingly poorly-illustrated "swag" in 2 & 3. Also, like with NBA Street & NBA Street Vol. 2, the nostalgia the game brings it overwhelming as you control the all-stars of the last generation such as Ricky Williams, Champ Bailey, Charles Woodson on the Raiders, Orlando Pace, Ahmad Green and Jonathan Ogden. A must-buy for NFL fans, whether you play Madden or football games in general.
The greatest sports game ever made
I cannot complain about this game at all. I have not played it in years so I may not be totally accurate on all of what I say. I love doing pickup games and getting players that were great back in 2003 and back in the day- NFL Legends. There are a lot of fun challenges that are difficult but are rewarding. Then you can make a new team, progress them, and take on the NFL's best teams and that is VERY challenging but a lot of fun! You can show off by throwing the ball in unusual forms and high-step into the endzone but be careful if your opponent has a GAMEBREAKER which makes their team almost impossible to stop. I never played the second one, but I'm sure it was good. The third wasn't that good and was silly: you could run on walls...but nonetheless this is a GREAT game and the only perfect sports game I have ever played.
a great but difficult game
when i first started playing its graphics were awesome you have to also be great at football games because you have to really try
i LOVE!!! this game it has so many places.it has cool style moves, good music this game is SICK!!!! GET THIS GAME if your cool and like a madden game!
The worst nfl street but still ok
cons - This game is clearly the least rememorable out of the 3 . its gamebreakers lacked it was just plain old gamebreaker . the style was limited and it was verry fustrating and boring in challenge mode . it had no street events and if you play it in 2012 its roster is too outdated
pros - wonderful soundtrack , classic fun , funny commentary , and epic areas to play in . more simplistic and original and paved the way for its two sucsessors .
The best game of all time. better than the next 2 nfl street games. i got this game for my birthday a couple years ago and still play it often. best game of all time. i love all the dated rosters with ladanian tomlinson with the chargers and marshal faulk. mike vick is BEAST. i love playing this with friends but single player isnt very fun. i just beat the game so i have the maps and their all fun
graphics aren't good but everything else is great.
