  1. This game is for the long multiplayer sessions with friends looking for something less challenging game than your standard simulation.

    If I could give a guilty pleasure award, I’d definitely place Blitz as one of the frontrunners.
  3. Another new addition is icon passing. This actually works really well, especially for those who are more advanced gamers.

    For fun, it's near the top of the pack. [Apr 2002]

    The addition of an Impact Player, who can be reassigned on the fly, offers more user control and can entirely change the flow of a play.
  6. Blitz is still a fun game, but it's in danger of joining NBA Jam and its cadre of rehashes ("NBA Hoops", "NBA Showtime") in the realm of the utterly irrelevant.
  7. Game Informer

    I still can't stand the passing system, and I'm certainly not going to fork over the cash just for better looking players. [Apr 2002, p.77]
  8. 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.
