Product Description

Product Description

Street Hoops is like the kid who shows up on the first day of school decked out in brand-new, brand-name duds, trying really hard to be cool and laid-back, while his rival (in this case, NBA Street) effortlessly oozes hip, relaxed charm. It's not that it's a bad game--it's that it could be so much more, if only it wasn't trying so hard, and in the most shallow ways.

Everything about Hoops is overly complicated, with no real payoff. The players can be personalized and stylized--you get to pick haircuts, jewelry, tattoos, and clothing. But instead of being a cherry on top of an otherwise great game, this decoration is in some ways more interesting than the actual court time. This issue of mixed-up priorities really takes root in the mechanics of the game. Considering there's no tutorial, the overly designed controller configuration gets in the way of just starting up and playing the game for the fun of it. In another example, unless you assign controllers to teams in the opening menu, the game mysteriously starts playing itself.

The music is great, with songs by mainstream hip-hop artists. But the abundance of tie-in deals seems like overcompensation for poor play. Hoops sometimes feels like a catalog, heavy with ads for clothing, sneakers, and sunglasses. In a spectacular example of the obtrusiveness of this co-branding, gamers can get cheats by buying real-world Sprite (vending machines for the soda are also littered throughout the game maps). Still, there's a fair amount to recommend Hoops--mainly the presence of real-life street ballers. The opening cinematic of inspired tricking makes you want to invest the time to make this game pay off. Anyone who just wants to play a little ball with their friends--a pickup game instead of a tournament--would be better off looking to the unmatched NBA Street. --Jennifer Hauseman

Pros:

  • Options like taunt and intentional foul evoke true baller bra

    From Amazon.ca

    Street Hoops is a gritty, street-style basketball game that encompasses the look, speed, energy, and attitude of park and playground blacktop competition. The game allows players to represent their hometowns in a nationwide tournament on the most notorious street courts in the nation. Players can choose from a roster of athletes and performers, including key athletes made famous by the And 1 mix tapes and Nike's Freestyle commercial series.

    Realism is the rule. Players are allowed to bet cash on competitions and buy authentic real-world gear--including Sean John, Ecko Unlimited, Southpole, and Pure Playaz--with their cash. On the court, you can talk trash, shout, and throw an elbow, if need be. The game features multiple modes of play, including World Tournament, King of the Court, Multiplayer vs., and Half-Court. Street Hoops offers a wide variety of real freestyle basketball moves and a hip-hop soundtrack.

First of all is for the (G)reatest (O)f (A)ll (T)ime players. This game is so ghetto and challenging, it will keep you playing for hours and hours. You will get bored after you played too much because it is true that they spent more time on partnerships(etc) than in gameplay. you could tell.. Compare to NBAStreets (vol. 2), S. Hoops is more ghettoer. ofcourse.. but the gamplay in S.H. is not that realistic than NBA.S .The player's trick moves is quite fast, sometimes you can't really tell what moves they're doing And that hurts the game alot becasue the thing that makes the game more ghettoerer is those street gangsta moves especially :Hotsauce! ANothER cool stuff in the game is those Stores where you can get a haircut, tatoo, chains, watches goldz, shoes, shirts/jerseys, short/pants, glasses, bands, hats, etc... PLUS you can make bet with your money on a catagories you're really good at. I mostly put on all of them because I'm a GOAT.
This game is fun to play (...)BR>I recomend this game to all who loves basketball, well Ghetto basketball plus you can check out videos from the street gangstaz
i said earlier. Man, they sure got skills. For those people who saw the AND1 Tour, you know what I'm talking about...

i baught a ps2 along with the Sims and GTA:vice city...didnt like vice city so i took it back in trade for Street Hoops. iv played nba2k3 and Live2003 and i really have to say...Street Hoops is the best basketball game iv ever played.pros: iv player street ball and this game captures the feel pretty well. graphics look good & rugged..which i prefer, the physical details are nyce as well. you can actually BUY CLOTHES, JEWELRY, TATOOS, HAIRCUTS, SNEAKERS from about 10 or 12 different real name brands..Ecko, And1...and a whole lot more. looks maad nyce as well..sept for the tatoos (<- con). the special dribble moves you unlock are OKAY..nothing to marvel at. you can unlock all the and1 special players...Hotsauce, The Future, Headache & the others. the courts are nyce and well shaded & colored. some of the backgrounds are obviously fake but thats nothin, the courts are done perfectly & designed nycely. theres full court scrimmage games, world tournaments games to unlock players & moves, half court scrimmage and Hold The Court modes where u unlock movies and special players Ludacris and DMX. you can set scrimage games to be played up to 11 points (like in real street ball. major plus). the music is hott..tho i turned most of it off (<- cons). also bet on games in every mode to win money to buy ya team clothes & shoes, jewels & others.cons: mainly minor problems. on the G.O.A.T. difficulty setting, the computer pushes too much, causing you to lose the ball sometimes. you get use to this tho and pass a little more often because you really cant SHAKE the computer on this difficulty setting. and they make almost EVERY shot if your not IN THEIR FACE. i see this as "every player is an allstar" so STAY IN THEIR FACE CONSTANTLY ON EVERY PLAY and you should be fine.Read more ›

Now having the game for about 3 weeks, there are some things that I think should be, or should have been taken care of.
The game is pretty fun and all but the one main thing that really throws me is that create a player mode. What the ... is the point of the mode if you cant even create your players name? Im not joking. I had a few great names ready, for example: MAD MEASTRO, MASSACRE, EPSILON and ICE PAK. Cool huh? But anyway, i thought that was pretty much the main factor.
Why are there even teams on this game. No one is designated on a team, meaning everyone in the game is a free agent. So much for having a favorite team. Also, why is it that you have to create 8 players at once in order to have money to support them all? I hate that.
WHy couldn't ALL of the players have their own moves? THat would be good. Im sorry for complaining, but why do you keep having to buy clothes over and over to edit your teams, excuse me, players look? Sometimes you check and see that your players looks are totaly out of whack. Very frusterating.
Once again, im sorry for complaining. THose are just the things that bother me and Im sure im not the only one who saw this and didnt like it.

My high expectations for this game were satisfied. This is a basketball game with great design and style. The graphics are quite satisfying and the gameplay is smooth. The audio is excellent. There's even a few music videos you can watch in the "movies" section of the game. Another great feature of the game is customizing your player's attire and giving him different tatooes, jewelry, or changing his hair. I also like betting on games. You can bet money and then earn it by winning a match, scoring the most dunks or 3 pointers in a match, etc. The one minor quirk with this game which makes me score it 4 instead of 5 is the controls. shooting and passing to team mates is easy but once you try to rebound or steal it can get difficult. stealing only works sometimes and trying to recover a loose ball is tough because the opposite team usually dives for it and gets it first. Overall a rather addictive game with great style. Opinions will vary, so I suggest renting it first.
