Stick with Fifa 12
The biggest issue with this title, is you will never want to remove the FIFA 12 from your console to put it in. It is way too arcadish and just doesn't play realistic. The concept is so cool but the emphasis on tricks etc takes away from strong football gameplay. I play FIFA 12 religiously, and just never find myself wanting to play the Street version.
Could be so much better
the concept for this game is very cool. the different venues, teams, skill moves, etc are awesome and thats what drew me into this game. The only problem i have with this game is defending. it is absolutely atrocious. it does not seem like its based on skill, you just hit tackle and hope for the best. almost everything else is great, but defending is awful.
Terrible AI, defending is awful
This game will knock your socks off the first time you play it. In fact, I believe that my exact words after my first match were "this game is the greatest thing that has ever happened." But that enthusiasm fades very quickly. You'll soon realize that the AI is so dumb that EA probably would have had to actually put effort into making them that stupid. Players just standing there would be better than players falling for no reason (at the most opportune moments) and actively running away from every spot that you need them to be. The defensive system is absolutely terrible on top of it all. I understand that it needs to be difficult to defend so the online gameplay can focus more on attacking play and tricks. But against the computer, expect to have little more options than to hit the tackle button and hope for the best. On the rare occasion that you time it right, your defender will be so slow to react to the stray ball that you'll probably fail to get possession anyway. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to tackle the same player 7 times in a row, only to have your defender stumble over himself or stand there like an idiot while the opposing player springs back into action and retrieves the ball that you just stripped. Meanwhile, the AI on the rest of your team thinks "yay, he got the ball!" and everybody runs forward to leave a wide open lane for the guy you just tackled but who miraculously regained possession while your defender was picking his nose.
Great at first
When i first played it i was addicted. But when i started to play online its more than frustrating. The response is god awful. i thought all of fifas games were lack luster in the gaming response. but this is horrible. i rarely write reviews on games but being so frustrated and disappointed i felt the need to let people know. stick with fifa 12 gameplay is significantly better
I had such High Hopes
I don't understand why EA would do this it is just an outrage to the FIFA Street fans of the old-days. This is not a FIFA Street game Firstly= (My Biggest Problem) Taking out slide tackles why would they do this the older games let you slice people without a care and having fun. 2) You have to play so far through the game before you can use 9/10's of the game 3) Free-Kicks and Penalties what are they doing in there? Overall if you do have FIFA 12 just keep playing it and if you don't have FIFA 12 then buy it instead because this game easily could have been a Add-on and even still would i buy it i do not know. If you are buying it because it is now cheaper maybe that will tell you that the game is sooo bad that in less than a month it has almost become half the price come on guys do you need any more reasons?
this game is awsome
I played the demo and it's so cool i love it and ill might buy it but i recomend this game to others that play fifa 12 or others pls add me xboxl live gamer tag:peliboll pika.
ITS AMAZING WHAT FIFA CAN DO
For reall this game is one great game even if you didnt played fifa 12 you can jump in right away for sure you might have hard time at begining but later you will be able to play better
the graphic is same as fifa 12 its so reallistic and sound effecfts will give u real street feelings how ever the only bad part is some time the control wont work as the way you want so i give this game9/10
I dont have this game but i played it over my friends house yesterday and it was incredible. The moves and tricks you can do in it are outstanding and the graphics are good too. i like how you can make a player and a team and customise kits and stuff. i give this game a ten out of ten. This game is fun and addicting.
This Game Would Be Fun, If It Wasn't So Impossible
I played the demo, I loved it, so I purchased the game. I really wish I hadn't though, this game is too confusing. I'm not a newb at games, but this is rather hard to figure out. I try to do the moves they show you in the guide, but 90% of the time my character doesn't do the move. The response time of your character is terrible, it seems like by the time you go to do a dribble trick to get around someone, they're already on top of you stealing the ball, and you can't do anything to stop it. The worse is when you are playing a 2vs2 3vs3 or 4vs4. You don't have a permanent goalie, and in turn the AI can end up, literally, walking the ball into the goal. I understand if it were as hard as it is on HARD but, I can't even finish the national event, which is right after the first event in the game. It would be helpful if the game would teach you what tactics to use in what scenarios. I'm not an actual futbol/soccer player, so for someone who doesn't know about the actual game of street soccer, this game is just too difficult to figure out. It could be a really good game. More power to those who know how to play, and who can actually figure out to play. Last time I'll buy a sports game from EA, though.
this game is very addictive, it makes you want to try the moves your self. for me, doing street move, playing soccer street style is my addiction. this game helped me to learn a lot of new tricks and also how and when to use it.
