    The gaming is well ahead of any other sports games, with big hits and clashes. Injuries and slo-mo make the game more interesting and puts more control into the users hands.

    Great graphics, gameplay and as original concept as an American football game could be. So far the only bad aspects of this game are that the playbooks are a little hard to see and the inability to change Franchises' (the story mode player you play as) physical traits. You'll be forced to play as a black dude. At least they made him light skinned so if your hispanic its not a Great graphics, gameplay and as original concept as an American football game could be.

You'll be forced to play as a black dude. At least they made him light skinned so if your hispanic its not a big stretch and if your white maybe you can pretend you got a really great tan. Lots of unlockables (TD celebrations, game modes, etc) and trophies give it a little added depth. Expand

    I love the gameplay but the fake urban style and emphasis on being "edgy" was laughable. I have to give this a 7 simply because it isn't a sequel. 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.

  1. Blitz: The League II disappoints on almost every level, leaving gamers praying to be tackled by Lawrence Taylor himself rather than being forced to play the game.

    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. If you are looking for an alternative to Madden, Blitz II: The League has enough punch to make it worth the purchase. It’s not going to replace the ultra high gloss of its competitors, but it is an original take on the dark side of sporting.
