Summary: Say goodbye to the arcade game that was once so much fun. This game is hardly an arcade game anymore. It feels more like Madden, except the announcers are even more annoying than Madden! The announcers actually WHINE constantly. What happened to the 2002 announcers, one was an idiot and other constantly ripped on him -- that was hilarious! Now you have to deal with constant whining and drawn-out stupid stories. Teams now have their own plays, which is cool.
Summary: Another in a line of "Me too"s trying to be Madden. Midway took the unique, arcadey gameplay of the original Blitz and watered it down. It really feels like you are playing a marketing decision rather than a balanced, fun game. The online portion can be fun, but the controls feel sluggish and laggy. The newest version of Blitz proves that the only football game you need is Madden 2004. On a positive note, the comentary is very entertaining.
