  1. The best parts of the graphics are all the taunts and celebrations the players do in between plays, and there are plenty.
  2. The best Blitz title since the original hit the arcade scene some five years ago.

    Has everything an arcade football nut would want. The gameplay is great, the graphics are incredible, the cheerleaders are cute, and it's an all around blast.
  4. There's really not much to it, especially in the game mode department, and the enjoyment of playing single-player wears off quickly because of this. They obviously focused on making the actual game play the best part of the game and therefore they've been successful.
  5. Though improvements are obvious in the looks, the controls leave a bit to be desired.
  6. 70
    If I could give a guilty pleasure award, I’d definitely place Blitz as one of the frontrunners.
  7. The graphics are clean, the action is fast and furious, and the gameplay is simple. Those expecting a brand new style of Blitz will be thoroughly disappointed.
