  • Summary: Blitz: The League brings you more Blitz-style play, but with more content and harder hits. The League includes on-field injuries, ranging from snapping bones to bloody, career-ending hits. Now you can control the entire franchise, dealing with personnel decisions and front-office politics. New visual game modes let you view crucial game moments and moves in slow motion. In addition to traditional multiplayer, you can also play the no-holds-barred style of Blitz football online. Expand

    The crass, lowbrow, and gloriously juvenile Blitz proves that you don't need those fancy NFL-licensed pants to make a quality f'ball sim... Never taking itself too seriously, this shallow Madden instead chooses to revel in the seedy, sex-drugs-rock-and-roll dark side of the pigskin. Which is the side we've always desperately wanted to revel in.
  2. Has a few balance issues but plays so well that no one will really care.
  3. Whether you're a staunch pigskin purist or arcade all the way, you really owe it to yourself to give Blitz: The League a look. It's easily the best football you'll play all year.
  4. The addition of online play and team customization will definitely keep hardcore football fans glued to their sets. This one doesn't just have meat on its bones, but big, pulverizing limbs. Prepare to get pounded.

    BTL is definitely not for the 15 year franchise, NFL obsessed, stat tracking, sim minded football fan. However, if you are looking for a fun football game that captures the more gritty and violent side of the game, it is definitely worth picking up.
  6. The addition of the new play styles, attitude, and story mode only enhance this great title. This is easily the best of the Blitz titles, and Midway has given fans a truly fun and entertaining football game that is not hindered by rules and penalties.
  7. I wanted it to be a Madden-killer. Unfortunately, it's the same old Blitz with some nice new additions that really don't have a major effect on gameplay.
