Ubisoft's tried to line up some sweet competition for EA Sports Big's dominating NBA Street series, but you can only do so much with a sports license if you don't have the muscle pushing behind it. And 1 Streetball ultimately suffers from a lack of effort in every category. The gameplay lacks in some areas, although its fake-out system does get points for attempting to be different, and the presentation seems rather average at best, getting drowned out by some rather annoying audio. The story mode also fails to draw you in and make you want to be the next Professor. Do yourself a favor and go 'ball somewhere else, like with the reasonably cheaper NBA Street Vol. 3.
