Weak

BIG Dissapointment (Get it, EA Sports Big)

From the beginning, this game has incredible graphics. Before you even play a game you are amazed at how good it looks, but then you play the game. The gameplay is flat out atrocious. The right-analog stick is no longer used so for tricks you are forced to press the square button and "modify" the moves with L1 and R1. The dunks are incredibly stupid with the initial dunk, ball gets caught in the dunkers legs, and finally another dunk to finish it off. I played two games and decided I couldn't handle anymore because it was so bad. The games have just gotten worse and worse since NBA Street. I'm sad to say it but this is the end for me, and probably the NBA Street franchise if they keep releasing garbage like this.

If you are a hardcore sports sim nut, this game is definately not for you. It is filled with super human antics and unrealistic tactics...let me correct that...no real strategy, just mash buttons and test your reflexes. Graphics are pretty good, except for a sepia tone during gameplay. Makes it look old school. Music and effects are good. The oncourt chatter is quite humorous. If you want a good arcade style basketball game then this is for you. It won't keep most hardcore gamers occupied for too long though.

This game really took a few steps back from the Original NBA street. Hard to believe due to it being on a next gen console. There so many things bad in this game I almost don't know where to start. The single game campaign is way to short, not Diverse or challenging at all. They took the concept away of playing certain people at certain parks for ownership of the park and added a cheesy respect point barometer. Play in tournaments are severely Limited (I may have played in three total). More importantly the game play of the characters Suck. The push a guy feature takes away from a big part of the game , the tricks. I don't know whose idea this was but they should be fired. This is basketball I never seen a game where you push a guy 40 times for the W in the NBA Or the in the street. Stealing the ball is far too easy, again it takes away from the tricks. They move to fast, and every one can blocks shots(gets annoying seeing Nate Robinson block three's) The trick sequence is gimmick-ey and harder to do specific tricks as in games past. Game breakers in this game are redundant and sad. I'm a big fan of NBA street, and this game is like the Rocky 5 of the collection. Stay far away from this Title its a waste of money and more importantly Time.
