FIFA Street 3 is the first good game in the franchise. There, we said it. After two efforts as misguided as Wayne Rooney's stomp on Carvalho in the last World Cup, EA Sports BIG has managed to put one in the net. It's not a consistently great game, but it's got flashes of brilliant fun that overcome its limited play options.
-Fun, intuitive core gameplay that's easy to hop in and enjoy, whether you've played a FIFA game or not;
-(mostly) good online head-to-head.
-Defensive AI has some holes;
-career mode and offline multiplayer modes get stale quite fast;
-some online games can get laggy.
