Is It Any Good?

EA Sports has once again hit a slam-dunk with the release of NBA Street Vol. 3. The game offers plenty of excitement for the NBA basketball fan, but also offers variety and challenges throughout, making it a game that your kid will want to play for hours -- once they get a hang of the controls. While the Trick Stick adds an exciting element to the game, mastering the complicated controls that are needed to operate it effectively can be very frustrating for beginners.

Overall, this is the perfect addition to your kid's game collection. The only other potential drawback for parents of younger players is the amount of trash-talking throughout the game. There's no swearing, but it is not a good representation of the kind of sportsmanship that is often stressed in team sports.
