Excerpt: From the menu system to the playing surface, NFL Blitz 2003 delivers in your face audio so intense you'd swear you were inside the TV monitor. On the field, you'll hear every bone crushing (in this game, I mean that literally!) blow and all of the trash talking you can handle.

Summary: NFL Blitz is another one of those action oriented Midway sports games akin to NBA Jam and NHL Hitz. Today I take a look at the 2003 version with Michael Strahan on the cover. It’s all about the action, celebration, and money plays. NFL Blitz hasn’t changed much from what I remember.

Conclusion: Normally, any game that allows me to run around as a seven foot hot dog complete with bun and mustard (yep, it’s unlockable) would hold a special place in my heart. Unfortunately, Blitz has too many glaring errors to hold any position in my heart, or my game collection for that matter.
