We have just our review of NFL Street 3. Find out what Clay Shaver had to say about it.
"When you’re a sports gamer, you can’t avoid fielding the questions about "sim" versus "arcade". Competitions between game developers have been focused on that simple concept for years. Do you want “three yards and cloud of dust” or an 800 yard, nine touchdown game from your offense? Do you want your point guard hitting 40% of his shots or burying 40 three pointers? It’s a simple matter of personal preference. There isn’t a right or wrong answer. In fact, I think there are a lot of folks who, like me, want both.
NFL Street 3 hits the PS2 after an extended off-season with an “Ocho Cinco” on the cover and significant changes under the hood. What stays the same is that this title knows what it is. While other games may try, intentionally or not, to walk the fine line between sim and arcade, Street is Street. Even a sim sports gamer should be able to appreciate the arcade fun that you get with these titles."
