    With all of these super cool additions, not to mention the fun-as-Swiss-cheese-in-a-can four player mode, this is the best "Blitz" so far.
  2. A must-buy for anyone who enjoyed last year's game -- and also anyone looking for an all-around fun game with the power to turn friends into enemies.
  3. 92
    The wealth of new features like the extra stadiums, wind effects and play editor still play second banana to the skull crushing gameplay that we loved in last year's game.
  4. Keep the same great game play but throw in more innovation next time please.
  5. Lovely graphics and sound coupled with great gameplay make this the game to get.
  6. In terms of options, "Blitz 2000" rests on its laurels, though a four-player simultaneous mode may be enough for die-hards to pick this one up.
  7. The players look and sound cartoony, with gigantic quadriceps and incredibly deep voices.

    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. Expand

    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.

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

    This is a pretty awesome game overall. I would like to have a create-a-team, or create-a-player option, but this is still a great game. If you don't want realism and fancy no-holds, no-rules chaos that which is referred to as football in this game, you need to check it out. Collapse
