Here is something to do to save yourself from wasting a rental. Just download the demo on xbox live and play it. Its the same thing!!! Plus me and my friends played the demo for like 2 hours because it was pick up and easy fun for two players.But the game itself is really bad and a waste.Wow remember when nfl street was so cool and awesome game breakers not to mention nba street awwwww the good ole days before the genre flood

Let me say first how impressed I am with the art direction and design of this game. It certainly looks great, from the menu design, to the amazing soundtrack, to the instantly recognizable caricature versions of all the players out there, to the varied and detailed pitches. This game looks great. I only wish they spent as much time refining the gameplay and controls. I'm a big fan of the "Street" series having loved both the NBA and the NFL versions, but something's just missing here. And if you haven't mastered defense, don't bother going on XBox live as most of the gamers out there have mastered juggling to the point where most of them are nigh-unbeatable unless you employ the same cheap tactics to win. Somehow, I don't think this is how the EA programmers thought people would play the game as it's clear from the beautiful animations that you're meant to really go as deep as you can into the trick system.
Go for it if you're a huge soccer fan, but if you're looking for a casual fun arcade soccer experience (which is why this is a Street game, not the FIFA sim) then you're outta luck! It's just not that fun to play.
