Excerpt: My experience with NFL Blitz goes back to 1997, when it was introduced into arcades everywhere. I remember watching players complete 60-yard passes on offense and deliver some brutal hits on defense that I only thought Id see on a pro wrestling telecast. I had heard that Blitz was the brainchild of Mark Turmell, the same Midway programmer who spearheaded Midways other immensely popular sports title, NBA Jam .
Excerpt: If there ain't no rest for the wicked, Gearbox Software is undoubtedly a haven for sinners. This Borderlands DLC is the third of several planned expansions. Gearbox got off to a strong start with The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned , then stumbled a bit with Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot . With Borderlands: The Secret Armory of General Knoxx , it seems as though they've hit their stride once again.
Excerpt: One of the greatest things about the Blitz series is that it has always looked great. The crowds are usually passable while the stadiums are top-notch for the most part. The turf is one of the best you'll see in any video game, with a vivid green parlaying around the freshly painted yard markers. The endzones look realistic, oh so realistic and really top off how well the gridiron has been rendered.
Excerpt: For whatever reason, I never really dug any of the Blitz games after around the 2000 edition. It wasn't that the games got any worse exactly, it's just that like so many other games, Blitz was one of those games that really relied on everything else that was going on in life for it's fun factor. I'd moved in with a couple of friends near the University of Washington and life was grand.
Excerpt: Playing the latest games is usually a fun and enjoyable experience. After playing a great game, it is very easy to write about it. However, after playing NFL Blitz 20-02 for the Game Boy Advance, I am unsure if I can express how poor it is. This title is so bad; I honestly have no idea why a great publisher like Midway would release it.
Excerpt: I remember the day I was introduced to NFL Blitz. Countless hours were spent with me and a friend as we scored Touchdown after Touchdown. With no refs and no rules, we sunk every quarter we got our hands on into our local arcade Blitz machine. As the next few incarnations of Blitz came out, we continued to play and have fun. However, nothing could prepare me for what Midway had planned for gamers in Blitz 20-02.
Excerpt: There's a good chance that most of you reading this are quite familiar with Midway's NFL Blitz franchise. Most of you have played the game, at one time or another. The over-the-top arcade series has always drawn quarters from casual arcade goers. While the first two were great on both the arcade and console, it needs to noted that the second is arguably one of the worst looking Playstation games, not to mention Midway's poorest extreme sports title.
