Gamedaily: FIFA Street 3 Review

Robert Workman of Gamedaily writes: FIFA Street 3 is EA Sports Big's attempt to slap soccer into an arcade format, letting would-be ball kickers play footsies around beaches, rooftops and other non-arena locales. Like the first two games, it relies on simple, "get the ball into the goal" basics, while throwing in a few tricks along the way. Unfortunately, most of the game's content has a recycled feel.
