  1. Blitz Pro walks a fine line between serious sim and classic Blitz action and maintains a perfect balance from start to finish.
  2. Midway did a great job again this year and it's a great game for the single player or for the gamers who enjoys playing with friends.

    The play dynamic is still fierce, there are tons of extra modes and fantasy teams to unlock. It's still a great two-player game, and the slightly better single player experience should make most fans of the series happy.
  4. A game that just doesn't fit in. Out of the box it's not as fun as its predecessors, and nowhere near as deep or engaging as Madden or ESPN.
  5. The inclusion of half-hearted simulation elements and toned down arcade gameplay result in Blitz Pro turning into a watered down shadow of its former self. Hopefully next year’s version will restore some glory to this now tarnished franchise.
  6. Still a user-friendly pigskin experience with lightning-fast over-the-top gameplay. Yet I'm forced to throw a penalty flag at the lack of big passing plays I've come to love from this franchise. [Nov 2003, p.172]
  7. While I wouldn’t exactly classify NFL Blitz Pro as a complete disaster, no question, it has taken a turn for the worse. Buy it only if you have to have every Blitz game ever made.

    This game is cool and all but it needs to have cheats like infinite credits or infinite turbo.
