  1. Without the really well balanced online play I would have REALLY given this game a beating. However the multiplayer aspects continue to be a draw.
  2. While the constant setting on fire and craziness of the old Hitz will be missed, there are still plenty of high scoring games and big hits to be had with the new title.

    The franchise may not be as wacky as before, nor as realistic as the competition, but it hits hard, doesn't let up, and is great entertainment for a group of friends looking for something less simmy and more instantly accessible.
  4. 60
    Gameplay modes can't compete with those of the big boys from Sega and EA -- especially the franchise mode. And the hockey school is a waste of space...Still comes highly recommended as a four-player party game.
  5. The "crash and bang" gameplay translates well to 5-on-5 gameplay, and with the rules turned off and the addition of online play, provides a great arcade-style alternative to the ESPN and EA series.

    This game is awesome except for the style of fighting. They should go back to the 2002 style.
