STAFF REVIEW of NFL Blitz 2003 (Xbox)

NFL Blitz 2003 Box art Nearly every year I buy the newest NFL Blitz game, and every year I wonder why. This has to be the least changed series from year to year. If you bought NFL Blitz the first year it came out, then you essentially have the same as this 20-03 version, just without the updated rosters. It's not to say it isn't a fun game, it's just getting on the stale side, and I think this will be my last purchase in this series for some time. While other football games are making changes and improvements over the past 4 years (NFL 2K series, Madden), NFL Blitz defiantely remains the same year after year.


The game play is fairly easy. I like that they included a cheat so that you can use icon passing (press A,B,X,Y to pass to that receiver), but shouldn't this be a regular option and not a cheat code? As always, it's fun to add hits after the play, and the announcers can be funny. 20-03 also has a create a player mode, but you can not create more than one player on a team. Your created player changes to whoever has the ball, which I didn't care for. I would rather be able to create specific players for specific positions. But, on the good side, Blitz is easy to pick up and play, and can be a fun experience.


Not as pretty as NFL 2K3, but it does the trick. The players are pretty generic looking, unless you make a custom player like a dolphin or the dough boy.


The announcers can be funny, the hits sound nice. The rest of the sound effects and menu music does the trick.


Suggestions:
Give us a reason to buy 20-04's version besides updated rosters.


Overall: 6.0 / 10
