    Basically, the only real reason to pick up this game is if you did not buy the original or if you simply must have the updated rosters for the 1999-2000 NFL season.

    The players look and sound cartoony, with gigantic quadriceps and incredibly deep voices.

    Blitz is an excellent multiplayer game. It brings out your competive side and you have fun at the same time.

    When sports games are realistic, they're boring. Sports games are best when they're ridiculous. And there's nothing more ridiculous andWhen sports games are realistic, they're boring. Sports games are best when they're ridiculous. And there's nothing more ridiculous and amazing than having your lineman catch fire because he's consistently sacking the QB, then recover a turnover and sprint away dragging 3 or 4 opposing teammates behind him.

    Blitz is awesome. Blitz 2000 is the best in the franchise. Madden expects you to have 3 functions memorized for each button. Blitz is arcade style madness that only uses A, B and Z.

    AND YOU CAN TACKLE ANYONE. ANYTIME. Because screw pass interference.
