I really like it... : /,
This review is from: FIFA Street (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I love FIFA 11, never played 12, am a veteran of the previous titles too. I just really really enjoy this game. Tricks are good fun, but to be honest I use a passing game more and it does seem to work fine. Tackling is tough but once you get the hang of it then it is a matter of timing, that's all. Games are fast and frenetic, kind of basketball meets footy. Goals can be spectacular, and you have to work for them which takes practice and I am loving practising, I really feel a sense of progression and improvement. Lots of different types of game, even the freestyle is terrific once you learn a few tricks. And I haven't found that any single trick is unbeatable, even the roulette. As for customisation, maybe my expectations are skewed but I have found more individual player customisation here than in any other football game - player look, body type, limb length, hair, eyes, clothing, and multiple skills options... and you really can tell the difference in play too. Little players are fast and nimble but can't tackle so well, big lugs with long legs are the opposite etc etc.
I reckon that this is a marmite title, and I do feel that if you are even vaguely interested then it is worth a punt. Maybe the negative reviews will push the price down... The demo can share the feeling but only in a very general sense, the best of FIFA street for me is the World Tour, creating your own very personalised team, improving them, getting attached to them.
I love it *shrug*.
