History[edit | edit source]

NFL Street is the first installment of the NFL Street series, developed by EA Tiburon, and published by Electronic Arts. The game was released on January 13, 2004, for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube.[1] Similar to the Blitz series, Street is seven-on-seven American football, modeled after its informal variant, street football. In the game, the player could create a team and complete challenges for rewards, play a pickup game with teams made from a pool of select NFL players, or just play a regular exabition game.

NFL Street 2 is the first sequel to NFL Street, released on December 22, 2004, for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and later PlayStation Portable (under the name NFL Street 2: Unleashed).[2] The game introduced new game modes such as Own The City, NFL Gauntlet, 4 on 4, and Crush the Carrier. It also introduced new wall moves (such as the wall juke), Gamebreaker 2’s, and several new playing fields.

The third installment of the series, NFL Street 3, was released November 15, 2006, for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.[3] New game modes include Play Elimination, Yards for Points, and Bank, and the player can now perform specific Game Breaker Moves while on offense or defense (such as a Game Breaker Juke or a Lock On Tackle).
