EA's arcade-style slant on the world's most popular sport pounds the pavement for more four-on-four action in FIFA Street 2. Players can get their kicks by challenging more than 320 professional stars on 20 teams or by competing against an international assortment of real-life street athletes in multiple game modes. New juggling moves and other feats of agility can be performed using the analog stick, dubbed the "trick stick," which initiates specific plays to outsmart opponents when pressed in unison with the controller's face buttons.
The trick stick is used primarily in one-on-one situations, where offense and defensive players attempt to quickly counter each other's moves. Players who successfully outwit their competition will increase the "momentum state" trick multiplier, allowing them to string together more special moves for a limited amount of time. As in the other Street titles, each time players use technique, they will charge a Gamebreaker meter that can result in an instant score or a turnover when used during a match.
FIFA Street 2 also features a number of customization options. Players can create an athlete with over 1,000 variables, from hairstyles and shoes to accessories and clothing. Teams can also be created along with home fields, to the point where players can alter pitch surface and the turf's overall appearance using a special tool. Once players are satisfied with their teams and athletes, they can enter an underground street tournament or invite friends for three-player cooperative action. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
