    Probably the best game to ever come out for the n64. The ridiculousness of how buff the characters are, plus their voices makes for a great laugh and fun arcade experience. The game really shines in multiplier mode with a group of you best friends. Makes the non competitive, competitive.

    Best game of the Blitz series, best football game for N64, one of the best games for N64. Blitz 2000 is perfection of the Blitz formula. A great multiplayer party game, It's easy enough to pick up that new players won't be intimidated, but can be complex enough to lead to heated matches. Graphics are good for N64, voiceovers for players and announcers are good at first but do get old after a while. This game is great for football fans but is arcadey enough that even non-sports fans love it! Tons of plays mean this game never gets old. Absolute must have for any N64 owner, my friends and I still play this in 2013, 14 years after it was released. It's so addictive that "one quick game of Blitz" always turns into a best of 3, then best of 7, etc.

    My main complaint is that playing 3 or 4 player is kind of lame because 2 people have to play as receivers and that's not very fun, but you trade off so it minimizes that. Also the AI does try to balance the game by increasing fumbles and interceptions to give the losing player a leg up, which can be frustrating for seasoned players, especially when you get back to back fumbles and interceptions against you. These are just 2 minor shortfalls though, this game is outstanding.

  1. An incredible sports game, adding up to one of the best (if not the best) the sports genre has ever seen.
  2. 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.
  3. The players look and sound cartoony, with gigantic quadriceps and incredibly deep voices.
