Travis Zimmerman  "Nba Street Is The Bomb. If You Don't Have It You Most Get It! I Have Never Played A Basketball Game That Was As Great As This. It Is Out Of This World! When You Talk About Basketball Games There Is Only Two Decision To Be A Loser Like The Rest. Then Again You Could Be A Winner And Get Nba Street."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Stefan Ernstsson (pinballwizard)  "A 3on3 B-ball Game With No Rules Can That Really Be Funny? The Only Answer Is Yes, This One Is The Basketball Answer To Ssx.

The Graphics Is Just Great, The Background Details And Court Designs Are At The Top Of Their Class. The Animation Is A Bit Stiff At Times, But There's A Lot Of Variety In The Number Of Movements.

The Sound Is Just Perfect, Cool Voiceacting And Great Music, And U Can Really Feel The Atmosphere When U Are Playing, It Feels Like U Are Courtside.

It´s A Great Trick System With Different Dunks And Dribbles, Awesome Player Control And Its Fun To Play On The Booth Sides Of The Court.

So In The End How Long Can A Game Like This Last? It Will Probably Last For Months, With Two Different Playermodes And A Speciall Create Ur Own Player Screen It Will Keep U Coming Back For More. And Ofcourse If U Can Find A Mate To Play With U Will Have Some Long Battles And Some Seriuos Thrashtalk Going.

I Can Only Say If U Like The Way Ssx Plays And U Are Into Basketball Go And Get This Game, If U Just Wanna Try Out A Basketbal Lgame Get This One.."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Martin  "I Was Really Dreading Basketball On Ps2 Because I Felt Sure That While The Graphics Would Be Ultra Realistic The Gameplay Would Surely Remain Boring (bounce, Bounce, Dunk… Block, Block, Block… Bounce, Bounce, Dunk….).

Somehow Ea Sports Have Managed To Liven Up This Previously Dull Game Format By Introducing A Range Of Beat-em-up Style Combos Into Play. Now You Don’t Just Run Across The Court And Dunk The Ball Into The Net…. Your Player Will Perform A ‘backbreaker’, Shuffle And ‘hammerdown’, Make A ‘groundbreaker’ Or Even ‘serve Dinner’! There Are Also Varied Single/two Player Challenges To Enjoy, While A Cache Of Rewards (players, Cheats, Courts) Can Be Unlocked To Further Expand Lifespan.

Once The Game Gets Underway It Really Does Feel Like You’re Taking Part In A Good Quality Fighting Game, Rather Than A Mindless Points Tally. Nice One!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
David Wells  "Wow, This Is One Of Very Few Ps2 Games That Are Currently On The Shelves That Is Worthy Of The Price Tag.

The Game Looks Drop-dead Gorgeous And Stands Out From Everything Else In The Same Way That Ssx And Gt3 Did.

Gameplay Is Fantastic Too - Way Better Than Any Other Arcade B-ball Game I Have Seen On Any System (or In The Arcades). Its Easy To Pick Up And Play, But There Is Enough Of A Challenge To Keep You Coming Back For More."
