  1. The perfect arcade football it was on the Xbox and a perfect alternative to the professional licensed titles out there.
  2. Midway rounded out a decent looking, sounding, and playing game with good Blitz mechanics that will make any fan smile in delight.
  3. 75
    Xbox Live play and addictive Achievements round out the incredible gameplay and make this game a must own for anyone who enjoys some good old fashioned hard-nosed football.
  4. As a less in-depth alternative, to Madden, you can't really fault Blitz. It stands somewhere between the feature bloat of that immensely popular series and EA's own faux-urban NFL Street games. However, whichever way you put it, Madden still comes out on top.
  5. If you passed on the PS2 or Xbox releases last year, Blitz: The League is definitely worth a look on the 360. If you’ve played the game already, there’s not enough new here to justify a second purchase.
  6. A last-gen game, lazily ported over to the 360. But, on the upside, it's an extremely entertaining last-gen game that takes a different approach to its sport. [Issue 22, p.58]
  7. While online play is acceptable, the game does have a number of unlockable achievements, but players can experience all of that over a weekend.

    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 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. Expand

    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 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. Expand

    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 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 improvements I mentioned above... but somehow I'm doubting it'll happen. Collapse
