Who says you need an NFL license to make a good football game? While Electronic Arts was dumping truckloads of money at the NFL headquarters for the sole rights to their license, Midway developed Blitz: The League, a game that throws that license to the ground and then stomps all over it. Blitz is packed full of things you would never find in an NFL approved game, such as off color language, drug use, gambling, violence, and scantily clad women."

Description

Blitz: Playmakers will feature a powerful story mode that, for the first time ever in a football videogame, explores the realism, lifestyle and drama found in professional football. Players will take the helm of a downtrodden football franchise and retool the players and coaching staff in a quest to guide them to the league championship. Additional features include intense multiplayer action with head-to head online play and complete customization of players, teams, stadiums and more.

Overall: Football fans most own this, it is a jewel in need of shining but it is completely fun and enjoyable for the time it is out. Buy this if you need a sports game with a fun twist and a couple of F bombs on the side.
Gameplay: Blitz has the same 30 yard first downs, but don?t worry if anything it should be more. You should expect huge plays as you will be relying on a special gauge called the Clash Meter. Each time you use this meter the gameplay will slow down alloying you some time to think while almost doubling your chances for a successful play, Unless you are on defense then you will have to expect no slow down but major hits (Fumbles and Injuries should be expected!). This concept is fun to play with and really does not get old. In story mode it is fun to create a team from city to stadium while choosing 2 beginning stars to actually lead your team to victory. Live is fun and you will find yourself yelling in annoyance two player quick match.

Graphics: Could be better, but I only found real complaints in the game models in the story cinematic, they are too bland for a game revolved around a compelling story. You will not be disappointed in-game however so don?t worry.

Sound: The voice acting will leave your ears happy as there is not much to complain about, but it would be nice to have a bit more variation in the music soundtrack even though it is all pretty much good.

Suggestions: good work. some more extreme non-unleash tackles would be good.
