We'd imagine that the FIFA Street series isn't particularly popular with true soccer fans, if only because their tea doilies can often be irreversibly soiled by putting them on the street or nearby benches. And for the rest of us, the players would probably need to smash their teacups on said street and jam one of the resulting shards in an opponent's eye before we'd be able to muster any interest. So, where does that leave FIFA Street 3? Well, if it's going to win anyone over it's badly in need of a demo, something it received on Xbox Live today.

Will the third iteration of the game strike a balance between being boring enough for fans of soccer while not being so boring as to make the rest of us pine for the excitement of riding the bus? Only the demo will tell.
