  1. Combining great graphics, humorous concepts, vast amounts of game modes, and its shares of improvements on the 2002 version, NFL Blitz 2003 managed to satisfy my every need for the fall football season.
  2. Essential fun and surprising depth combine to make this one of the best party games on the Xbox.
  3. It's a great game and definitely worth purchasing if you didn't already buy Blitz 2002, but Blitz 2002 owners may wish to rent this one first to see if the changes are meaningful enough to them to warrant another purchase.

    Midway's pure arcade game is goofy, off the wall, and one of the most addicting arcade games on the planet. But make sure to note it's not a sim.
  5. The game’s only true problem is that it doesn’t have a lot of depth, but besides that it is just a very enjoyable arcade football game.

    The game is well done overall, although, there is a serious lack of game modes goving it short longevity.

    I love the gameplay. But there are some simple annoyances to drag the game down a bit. The play picking menu is poorly designed. There are I love the gameplay. But there are some simple annoyances to drag the game down a bit. The play picking menu is poorly designed. There are tips that pop up on screen at the start of the game that are just plain annoying - especially if you've played the game lots and don't need any tips. I really think it could have used some mini games and bonus multiplayer distractions. It'd be nice if in following years they included an easier way to enter codes (for big head mode etc) too. As it is ya have to punch in codes on the fly during the loading screen. Overall, I like this game better than blitz pro. Even if it is pretty bare bones. Full Review »

    This is the best Blitz yet. It's only mildly improved over 2002 though. So if you don't have 2002 and are a Blitz fan, then you This is the best Blitz yet. It's only mildly improved over 2002 though. So if you don't have 2002 and are a Blitz fan, then you can't go wrong here. It's also a nice place to start if you've never played Blitz before. It's a great game, but it's difficult to justify a purchase if you've got 2002 already. Full Review »
