  • Summary: NFL Blitz 2001 for Dreamcast is a worthy update and a giant step above the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 versions of the same name.

  1. Truthfully, there isn't much in the way of competition for Sega's "NFL 2K1" when it comes to Dreamcast football titles. However, NFL Blitz 2001's quirky gameplay, rich features, and drool-inducing visuals make it an excellent alternative.
  2. 90
    The latest Blitz for the Dreamcast is not a huge improvement over the last one, but there is enough here for true Blitz fans to pick up the sequel.
  3. After months of 2K1, GameDay, and Madden, Blitz is a welcome and very fun addition to the football lineup.
  4. You can even taunt your opponents more than ever with moves like putting your shoe in his face as if you're going to squash him while he lays ragged on the ground.
  5. Dreamcast HQ

    If you haven't picked up NFL Blitz 2001, and you want a fast paced, no rules, slamfest for you and your buds, then you need to go get this game. Still here??
  6. 80
    Be it two, three, or four gamesters pounding away at once, Blitz 2001 has enough action, laughter, and replayability for even the most discerning bastard out there.
  7. A grim reminder of how lackluster sequels and apathy can kill even a promising franchise.
