Soccer is an interesting sport. To outsiders, it's nothing more than tireless passing and fake injuries, but in reality, it's true craftsmanship with a perfect amount of showing off. FIFA Street, the epitome of nostalgia, cashes in on this concept with excellent gameplay from its older brother, FIFA 12. EA Sports has hit the nail on the head once again, but the real question is: will casual fans will pick up Street over FIFA 12 and other soccer titles? The latest soccer addition utilizes FIFA 12's engine in an outstanding manner, replicating the core experience while introducing Street's off the wall gameplay. The backlot-style action is fast-paced and stacked with insane goal scoring, headlined by an excellent control scheme. Players can use the analog sticks to perform tricks, while using the buttons to shoot, steal, and run. The layout is welcoming to soccer newcomers, but still offers a learning curve to perfect juggling and dribbling. The entire concept is smooth and exhilarating, making goal scoring an even greater time. FIFA Street's branded name may turn off fans who see it as just "another soccer title," but that's just where Street shines. EA and its Canada team have focused primarily on creating a pick-up, backlot experience that strays off the beaten path. From alleyways to midtown gyms, FIFA Street maintains this goal and emphasizes it.
When it comes to \"Street” games, most of us think of over-the-top animations, players on fire, and other half-amazing, half-ridiculous things. FIFA Street in the past had many of these characteristics. This year's installment has surprisingly changed much by switching from the fantasy world of street soccer and heading into a realistic trick universe. After years of development specific for this year's title, Electronic Arts has created the Impact Engine, which allow players to maneuver the virtual ball with the skills of professional soccer players and the flash of \"amateur” street ballers. This new FIFA Street steps into a whole new ballgame, and it looks fantastic. With the release of FIFA Street, EA has put two major soccer titles on the market within the last six months. Already competing against PES and other smaller name soccer games, EA looks like they are creating competition for themselves. But there is no reason why people can't own both FIFA 12 and FIFA Street. They bring separate elements everyone can enjoy—the best of both worlds. In fact, I think an 11-on-11, all regulations rules match in Street would be the complete package, but I'm getting ahead of myself. You can kick Street off with one of the many game modes that are available.
Ginga Toe Chop. McGeady Spin. Touzani Around the World. No, that's not complete gibberish; those are just some of the eccentrically named tricks you can use to outsmart, outrun, and outplay your opponents in FIFA Street. Their various flicks, volleys, and flashy footwork make each an impressive display of technical prowess, and--unlike the tricks in FIFA Street's predecessors--none of them would look out of place on the football pitch. The cartoonlike visuals and seemingly impossible tricks of old have been replaced with a more gritty visual style and pure, fast-paced street football. FIFA Street is satisfying to play and almost as impressive to watch, despite something of a steep learning curve to master the intricacies of the game. Not that FIFA Street doesn't try to make things easy for you. A set of tutorial videos teaches you the fundamentals of the new street ball control system, including body feints, stepovers, and juggling, which are easy to perform and immediately impressive out on the pitch. Step up to some advanced tricks, though, and the controls get much more complicated, with all manner of analogue stick flicks, rotations, and button taps required.
Last week, Lionel Messi became the first player ever to score 5 goals in one Champions League match. His performance didn't only embarrass a handy Bayer Leverkusen outfit, it epitomised why EA poached his face from Konami's faltering Pro Evolution Soccer franchise. The Argentinean, despite his beautifully conditioned hair, poses the most prominent threat in football today. His performance couldn't have been better timed, showcasing all the traits EA has worked hard to instil in this much-anticipated reboot. As any Thursday night footballer knows, nothing is more important than humiliation. Little Leo's debut in EA colours is symbolic of this, indicating the all-or-nothing style of FIFA Street, and turning the competitor's cheeks a rosy shade of red in the process. Importantly, EA has finally gotten serious with this title. Shifting away from the jovial spirit of FIFA Street 3, a glut of changes has been implemented to ensure this isn't a lazy sideshow to the main attraction. Players no longer take on the form of caricatures, so you won't be throwing the bicycle frame of Peter Crouch against a particularly bullish Carlos Tevez. Guaranteed super-goals have been dismissed, exchanging over-the-top back flips and rainbow coloured trails for a realistic approach.
Most people make do with one football game a year. They dutifully buy their copy of FIFA or PES every autumn, and it merrily tides them over for the next 12 months. But EA firmly believes that the marketplace can support more than one football game. Why not? Consumers regularly buy more than one first-person shooter and more than one role-playing game. Enter the rebooted FIFA Street franchise. Where previous entries in the series had a heightened sense of reality, with caricatured player likenesses and a camera partial to the odd crash-zoom, the new FIFA Street is much more in keeping with the core FIFA franchise. This doesn't mean it's been sapped of what makes street football potentially so electric and exhilarating; it simply creates a sense of continuity between the two titles. And that's no bad thing when the other game is FIFA 12, one of the best-selling sports games ever made. But FIFA Street isn't a cynical, half-hearted entry into the series, it's got an interesting career mode, a simple yet effective control scheme, and is just really, really good fun when played with friends. Presentation is good, but never approaches breathtaking. A lot of the environments are interesting and vibrant, but lack the level of detail to really sell them.
Will EA's latest FIFA Street have style and substance?As I mentioned in a recent article on the Vita version of FIFA 12, football isn't really my area of expertise. There have been a few stretches in my life when I tried to get into the sport properly (I "supported" Liverpool, before you ask), but I never really clicked with the quasi-religious, cry-if-your-team-lose side of things. And after the brutal masochism of England's piss-poor performance at the last World Cup, it'll be a while before I can stomach an international competition.FIFA Street is a football game, but it's one that removes itself from most of the institutional aspects that generally define the sport - the authoritarian regulations, the massive stadiums, and even the core tribalism that forms the backbone of life as a devoted fan. It's still a game about punting a ball into a net, but now that game can take place in halls, in the streets, or on the roof of a building in Hong Kong. There are just a handful of players on each side, and there's almost as much emphasis on showing off as there is on scoring goals. Almost, but not quite.We've been here before, of course. A Football Dunce I may be, but even I am familiar with the reputation of the original FIFA Street titles - and it's not pretty.
