    horrible, uses the same engine as madden, nothing like the original. There is a lack of game modes and gameplay is repetitive. Waste of Microsoft Points

    A fantastic title, NFL Blitz is like revive a classic; the gameplay is awesome, the graphics wow are beautiful, the characters and the online are fantastic. NFL Blitz is a great title.

    Blitz is still more fun than Madden, but it is missing a few things. The gameplay is still intact, everything from the playbooks to the animations are the same except for the late hits which actually is a big deal when you have attention deficit disorder. ;) The game is very fun online, especially with a friend and the Gauntlet mode is awesome for offline, but Blitz needs a season mode for stats addicts like me who are sick of Madden. Who cares if it's arcade football? The others had it, so why not it's updated version. If it had franchise or even season mode, then it would have scored a 9 but unfortunately EA left it out. Expand

    Great fun game to play with anyone who remotely likes football. I have always been just plain bad at sports games switching them out with GOW3 and BF3 but this is a great pick up and play game with much to do for 15 dollers!

    If you like the old blitz games you will love this. Online play is fun, nothing like schooling someone blitz style. The only thing missing is late hits and that holds it from a 10 for me

    Fantastic fun!!! The gameplay and controls are smooth and the sound is great. The visuals are over the top, but really match the Blitz line of games. If you are looking for a simulation...go play Madden. This is a near perfect remake of the old arcade game with slightly updated rosters. There are some obvious flaws in the line ups...but nothing a Blitz fan would balk at. Does Michael Vick throw right handed in the game? Sure...but who cares? This is a $15 game that could have been tweaked slightly and sold for $50. Collapse

    This new NFL Blitz does what the series has always done best... make football intense and cram it down to under 10 minutes a game.

    NFL Blitz's online co-op offerings are similarly robust. You can simply jump into a co-op game with up to three different friends, including a guest on the couch with you.

    NFL Blitz 2012 isn't going to re-invent the way you look at football, or, in fact, the way you look at Blitz. There's not a whole lot there, and it really doesn't make any sense that they took out the fun extracurricular violence, but, in the end, it's a game you'll play every now and again and smile while you're doing it.
