    The game uses profanity, cheerleaders shaking their ass, and broken bones to distract you from the lackluster AI playing out before your eyes... and it almost works.
  2. By no means is it worthy of owning. Midway has a great idea here, but the game play and graphics are just plain awful.

    There is also an annoying amount of trash talking cutscenes after each play, but fortunately they can be skipped or turned off entirely.
  4. Midway continues to impress with hard-hitting and fast-paced arcade football title, but goes a bit too far with their mature "reality" presentation.

    Blitz: The League crosses the thin line between hardcore and tasteless. [Nov p.94]

    Blitz: The League is functional, fun, *!#$ed-up fantasy football with enough humor, style, and faux "edge" to keep even the least gridiron-minded among us entertained with its raunchy excess.

    Everything awful about the modern football player is showcased in Blitz: the League. [Dec p.87]

    This is football for people who don't like football - which is rather pointless. [Dec 2005, p.110]
  9. While it is frustratingly easy to throw an incomplete pass and slow-mo didn't always respond when I tried to trigger it, when it worked right I would leap up from my couch and start screaming in excitement as my quarterback nimbly tossed the ball down the field to a receiver who spun away from one opponent, crashed through another and raced down an open field.
