  1. Blitz: The League II is not just another sports game! Midway combines action, fun and an ironic touch to bring pep in the genre. Maybe, fans of accurate tactics, rules and simulation will be a little bit disappointed, but other gamers will definitely be satisfied!

    Midway has done a nice job of correcting most of the mistakes from last year's game, but the sore visuals and lack of overall polish keep this game from achieving greatness.
  3. Midway's arcade football franchise breaks all the rules, plus your arms, legs, skull, scrotum, and spleen. If that sounds like fun, it's because it is.
  4. If you want a game that is fast, gritty, and fun as hell to play with commentary by Madden himself (actually it's the hilarious Frank Caliendo doing his Madden impersonation) then Blitz may be that "shot in the arm" you are looking for.
  5. A substantial improvement over the original game. It’s very fun to play and although you’ll probably finish campaign mode in a day or two, there’s enough online replay value to get you through the season.
  6. It's readily apparent that Blitz: The League II is not a game for football purists. The use of power-ups, lack of penalties and dirty play is enough to make them cringe. However, for fans of arcade-style sports games, The League II is pretty good.

It is the same thing as Blitz: The League with the same single player story and everything. Nothing has changed but a slight HD upgrade. Felt ripped off after finishing the first one years ago.
