A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
Parents may wish to discuss taunting.
Violence & Scariness
Players are tackled, tossed and thrown to the ground, but quickly bounce back up and are ready for the next play. Unlike an actual NFL game played on grass, you'll find no blood, no broken bones and no injuries here.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the game features plenty or hard-hitting action, but it's not nearly as violent as a live NFL game -- even though much of action takes place on unforgiving surfaces like concrete. Players do not wear pads or helmets, but are able to quickly bounce back off the ground without blood and without even the slightest injury.
Is It Any Good?
Visually the game is a step above the original NFL Street. Players look more realistic, with ripped muscles and facial features that make it easy to distinguish your favorite NFL star. The playing fields are also more detailed, with 10 new fields and two bonus environments that include fences running along the sidelines, buses parked in the end zones, and a variety of other obstacles that make scoring quite a challenge.
A wide variety of playing levels make NFL Street 2 stand head and shoulders above many sports titles on the market. Younger players may get frustrated because they must win at each level to advance through the game. Mostly, though, the game is well suited for kids. While the action is intense throughout the game, players quickly recover from bone-jarring hits without a scratch. The only negative is the amount of taunting and trash-talking on the field.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
