    If you're looking for serious Blitz fun, get four friends together for multiplayer, as this is where the game really shines. [June 2002, p.120]
  2. The music fits the frantic pace of the game play and the menus and player taunts, grunts, and hits are all done very well.
  3. The best arcade-style football game on the home market.
  4. What this game lacks on a strategic side, it makes up for with its aggressive side. This game is a sweet addition to the tradition of Blitz titles.
  5. A football purist’s nightmare, and a football fan’s delight. It is fast paced and pure entertainment.
  6. Even sharper graphics with higher poly-counts [than the PS2 version].
  7. NFL Blitz isn't about football - it's about fun, and it delivers that message with extreme results.
  8. 80
    A huge upgrade in the graphics department, and the gameplay is solid as ever.
  9. A great product that only wears a little thin on the single player and innovation.
  10. This is the perfect game to play when you have a buddy or two over and want to get in a quick 30 minute beatdown of them.
  11. This game takes the Steve Spurrier/Mike Martz offensive philosophy - PASS, PASS, and PASS again - and mixes it with a lethal combination of steroids and fire in order to give the most barbaric fan what they want.
