    Now....there are obvious flaws in this game, but the gameplay is what truly matters and that is why I give it an 8, In order to achieve a higher rank the roster need to be able to be modified deeper, and the online needs some work. Actually....I am surprised this game is getting such low reviews. I play this way more than any Madden football game. It is over the top rightious fun.

    8? I am not talking about graphics, or enhanced controls, I am talking about fun factor. As many times as I felt shafted by a defense in this game it is addicted. You keep playing it!! EA's counterpart is missing that fun factor despite the other things it has over Midway.

    The loss of the NFL license is a good thing for this series, but Midway isn't taking the idea far enough. If they'd polish the online play, and add the ability to customize everything, a full draft/trade system, and a play editor, this game would be far more fun to play than the "new year, same game" Madden series. Hopefully, Blitz sold well enough to merit a sequel with the The loss of the NFL license is a good thing for this series, but Midway isn't taking the idea far enough.

    Blitz: The League is a fun,but flawed game.

    After losing the NFL licence,Midway decided to make Blitz a mature,dark take on American Football.Bones break,f-bombs galore,hilarious celebrations,late hits and mature off the field scenarios in the story. The gameplay is classic Blitz.But it does feel unbalanced,as players will go for catches sometimes,and not on other occasions.Also

    After losing the NFL licence,Midway decided to make Blitz a mature,dark take on American Football.Bones break,f-bombs galore,hilarious celebrations,late hits and mature off the field scenarios in the story.

    The gameplay is classic Blitz.But it does feel unbalanced,as players will go for catches sometimes,and not on other occasions.Also defenses stop the run way too well,they shouldn't be getting in the backfield on nearly every play.The game is also very shallow.The campaign is short,and while there are a few unlockable modes,they wear out their welcome pretty quickly.

    The graphics are extremely underwhelming for the 360,but the framerate is solid.

    Sound effects are decent,but soundtrack is terrible.

    Overall,Blitz The League is a mature take on America's No.1 sport that is fun,but flawed.The lack of content doesn't help either.It gets tackled just short of the goalline.

    However, hitting the line of scrimmage with a friend on Xbox Live distills football's best elements into a tasty online brew that fans will suck down with gusto. [Dec. 2006, p.76]

    Blitz is no work of art. It's quirky, bizarro entertainment that grabs you like a swift kick to the testosterone sack and is best played live with guys in an M-rated atmosphere.
  3. Blitz on the Xbox 360 is the same addictive, violent game of football that it was last year. But after a year's time, you'd hope for a bit more than a barely touched Xbox port.
