This different kind of soccer game may give several hours of enjoyment for those looking for a very accessible and more arcade-like and street-influenced experience. But despite the various modes to indulge in (many of which are more like mini-games), the shine of Street Power Soccer fades after a few sessions. This isn't a classic soccer sim -- it's street ball (soccer). So not only will you learn and master moves and trick shots, but the developers have tried to capture sports culture -- between fashionable wear, graffiti-laden urban settings, and licensed music from all kinds of artists. To add a little extra "kick" are Special Powers, like jumping way up in the air, curving shots, and delivering a serious power kick between the posts. It's fun at least for a while, but there isn't really much more to the game than this.

The best mode to start in is King mode, which serves as a kind of career mode, allowing you to perfect abilities across different styles of play. You'll first choose your players in a kind of loadout screen. Once you play a couple of Street Power matches (which somewhat resemble FIFA Street) and learn the nuances of each player, you'll likely start to master the game -- like learning Liv Cooke's "Around the World" move and Super Mario Strikers-like power-ups to take advantage of. Visually, the cel-shaded character models are attractive and the animation is slick. While it doesn't have cutting-edge graphics, it's not horrible, either, and makes up for it in style. There were a few small technical issues, like long load screens at times and some clipping issues, but it was decent for the most part. So long as you're a fan of soccer and have reasonable expectations with this arcade game, you'll find Street Power Soccer is accessible, stylized, and fun for all ages.
