What is your favorite style of football? With the exception of 11-vs 11 almost any other form of football that seems unreasonable FIFA Street has it, the most necessary and remarkable resurrection of one of the wildest games from Electronic Arts.
Football is on every corner, and many of us have played in more “urban settings” than in fields themselves. It is for that user profile, and to all lovers of sport in reality FIFA Street: a game that pays homage to these street football warriors with a game that uses familiar surroundings to fire our imaginations with impossible maneuvers.
Electronic Arts successfully recovers a spin-off that in the past had good number of fans, and shows that in a sport as rich as this the only limit is imagination. Impossible maneuvers,somewhat limited game modes but quite varied and the whole spectacle afforded by the biggest stars of the game for a release that captures perfectly the spirit of rogue thug and street football and especially good in the company of friends.
The Street … The Heart of Sports
The heads of FIFA Street had two tracks, follow the interesting but ignored FIFA Street 3, an approach that bordered arcade football that looked like a “cartoon” or to seek a more realistic approach in the search for absolute fun filled game. The chosen was the second, to keep your feet on the ground with a true physical gameplay with aggressive behavior, such as some forms of indoor football with a more than admirable respect for the rules of the sport.
Overall title at hand is pure fun and uncomplicated, a simple game with very intuitive control reminiscent of the FIFA series that is undoubtedly its big brother. If we look back at FIFA 12, for example, it is a spin-off, and the game play is very similar … No coincidence that both releases are developed by the same studio. There are changes, of course, one is that you lose some depth in the appearance certain passes and defensive and tactical ability but on the other hand, what is gained is versatility when it comes to dribbling, that is really impressive.
So much is this depth that the game focuses on its gaming experience, with many modes and mini-games based solely on making amazing football game skills that are out of this world really. Not only is it full of mechanical possibilities, but also offers really fun maneuvers that are spectacular… especially if we do it with our friends and allies and opponents.
Street football in its purest form, FIFA Street returns with its fourth installment to offer something different to lovers of the game.
Everything is as simple as pulling the left trigger on the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 (L2), for example, for exercises with the left stick and keep the ball very close to the feet (as defined by street style) or on the other hand, using the classic right stick to perform spectacular fakes and dribbles roulettes or more powerful kicks. There are other techniques such as holding down the stick to step on the ball or pressing the trigger right/R2 to raise the ball and perform a myriad of kicks associated with each of these movements. The FIFA series has always enjoyed tremendous depth on the use of fakes, but this time there are so many ways around the opposing defenses that we could spend the early hours of game learning them, so expect to be all but overwhelmed by all the maneuvers that we can perform. There is an arena where training is used to gain experience, however it is not very useful.
Where, When and How-Game Modes
Yes, FIFA Street is extremely rich in terms of opportunities in the field of gameplay, especially on the offensive as defending is quite limited, however in terms of gameplay possibilities the program offers a bunch of forms but most are close to the original not too varied and generous in number. The possibility of carrying out exhibition games, enjoy the “campaign” or access the online features are the only options that we can enjoy in the game, with some conspicuous absences, for example, that of to organize some kind of off-line tournament between several users when we gather with our friends.
The Quick Match is where we find the full range of options with four types of play such as the ability to customize every detail of the game to the fullest.
The last of the modes is King of the track which is also really fun, especially playing it together with friends. Here we face a game mode without goalkeepers in a team of four players, and for every goal allowed a team loses one of its players. This generates enormous excitement and funny situations.
As you can see these modes are really fun and not only that, but in some cases very original, we can also customize all the rules of the experience to create our own setup, defining the presence or absence of golies, faults, and the duration, number of players, the ball type, etc. This is the basis of the game. For example there is a campaigned called World Tour, where we create our Virtual Pro (or import from FIFA 12) in the world of FIFA Street.
The World Tour starts in the region you choose, allowing us to participate in small tournaments in nearby villages. What is the goal? Stardom of-course.
The character editor is fairly complete, and even allows us to customize a whole new player player created by ourselves. FIFA Street is visually, clearly, a game much less brave in the aesthetic that that of FIFA Street 3, this time turning to the realist is the flavor of the game.
The stage of the game makers here have done an outstanding job, offering a handful of locations of hard work behind them and plenty of variety. They are often not regular in its design, with walls in some places and gaps in others, with a large portrait of these sites so great where we all once played football for them to be improvised.
FIFA Street successfully recovered a franchise that had provided great results in the past, and does so with a brilliant concept straddling its physical reality and fantasy of the the best players in the world. Rounding out the game that has lacked a greater variety of play modes and greater ability to entertain us longer, but this game shines for gamers looking for “quick” game play and if accompanied by our friends this is a really good sports game.
Overall we give it 8.5 / 10
