I remember the original FIFA game on the PC - now that was one interesting title to play on a 486, and it was pretty easy going 11 up on your opponent due to the goalkeeper bug. Over the years, the FIFA franchise has evolved and virtually all consoles have had some sort of FIFA titles. The Nintendo DS is no different, and what we have here is FIFA Street 3 which turns your regular soccer sim into a more arcade-ish title. This is the sequel to FIFA Street 2 which wasn't exactly a surefire winner on the DS, and the 3rd title presents EA with a challenge to improve the series.
Many Americans find soccer rather boring: you score some very low points each game after running around for 90 minutes and no body tackle or horse-collaring allowed in the game? Well, there is a beauty to the game of soccer, and in order to increase the final score line, the art of street soccer was developed into a faster paced match which often resulted in some pretty high scores in the end. Of course, the ground where the battle is fought won't be in the Theatre of Dreams or at the Emirates, nor will the Bernabeu and Camp Nou be featured. Instead, the matches will be held just about anywhere on the street, where imaginary goal posts and lines are drawn up.
