Fifa Street 2 

 

Most sports gamers have a love or a hate of Electronic Arts. Their lack of real progression in sports games has been disappointing over recent years. That lethargy can be found in the past as well. Fifa Street 2 is on the PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube but not worth much of a mention. A reader had made a request for this game to be reviewed so I got it out of the Family Friendly Gaming library and started to play it. The four on four soccer action (counting the goalie) is played on what looks like basketball courts, and keys on the player showing off tricks to gain points. The goalies are not very intelligent, but the scores can be kept down with the length of games.

The graphics are generally of the darker tones, and they feel average at best. The character models are okay, but a lot of their animations are immature. EA Sports Big went for a ghetto looking theme that screams clean up the inner city (editor: physically, and corruption).

There is some serious ethnic music going on in Fifa Street 2. I would need a translator to help me discern the lyrical content, which makes this game feel half finished. EA should have regionalized Fifa Street 2 for English which is what the overwhelming majority of Americans speak.

If you can handle the game play issues that are discussed in the next paragraph then there is plenty of replay value in Fifa Street 2. There are a decent amount of unlockables found within Fifa Street 2. This game can be found pretty cheap, but even then I would advise you to pass on it.

Fifa Street 2 is not a lot of fun to play, and the showboating encouraged turned my stomach. I wish there were more teams in this game, because EA really left Fifa Street 2 lacking in that department. The controls work as they should for the most part, so there is no complaints there.

The theme of vanity, mixed with the ethnic music and poor soccer action makes this a poor sports game, and an even worse casual type game. Fifa Street 2 is one such video game that EA can discontinue as a franchise. It is not real soccer, and too lame to be a Mario Soccer party kind of game. It is like EA targeted a really small niche of people with Fifa Street 2. The whole vanity lesson in this game is one of the reasons the general public find gamers to be arrogant. Pass on this one.
