Featuring real NFL teams, players and stadiums, NFL Blitz 20-03 showcases intense 8-on-8 gameplay coupled with a host of new features that challenges gamers to pick up the skills needed for the "big time."

Like a football highlight reel, NFL Blitz 20-03 allows gamers to execute adrenaline-style, over-the-top moves such as bulldozing and stiff-arming, take outrageous dives for passes and control strong-armed, precision-passing quarterbacks who throw darts, bullets and bombs. Along with larger-than-life players and lightning-fast moves, the Create-a-Player mode allows gamers to build their alter ego into the game, pushing NFL Blitz even further atop the football category.

Overall: NFL Blitz 20-03 is Midway's over the top, arcade style football game. The game seems to be too shallow, with seasons that offer no changes or options and roughly the same gameplay we get every year.
Gameplay: The game plays like a regular football game. Just take away half of the positions, the refs, the rules, and half of the field, and you have a rough idea of Blitz. Like I said before, the game plays exactly like the previous installments and offers no depth in the way of the season modes. It is a fast and fun football game that is fun to play at parties, but gets repetitive and boring after too long.
Graphics: The game looks fairly good. Theres still the short field and narrow posts. The ball is still plain and huge, and the characters still look bulky and unrealistic. The animations are nice and funny though when you tackle someone.
Sound: Absolutly nothing special. The sounds are few and the announcers are repetitive to the point where you want to mute them.
Suggestions: Add new options from year to year and provide a deep franchise mode like most other football games.

The Jackal
Date reviewed: November 2, 2003.

Overall: What can ya say really. For what the developers were goin for they got. A football game with all the big hits people want. Fun game. But i am there wasn't more dynamic advancements considering how long it's been since the original came out.
Gameplay: Just like the Blitz games that were made before. Simple and exciting. It's very exciting if you have good competition.
Graphics: Visually could be less square. You can still have big disproportioned players with rounded off features.
Sound: Big hits, hard passes, and hard stiff arms. You hear it all in this perfect kind of arcade style football game.

Overall: An okay game but why is blitz 20-02 way better then this.
Gameplay: Gameplay controls are okay but not the best.
Graphics: Graphics are awsome. They improved over the years.
Sound: The sound is pretty cool bonescracking, players screaming momma and the announcers. But still okay.
Suggestions: Why is Blitz 20-02 way better.

Overall: This was a very football game. I only had it for a few days and i already played it for about 10 hours. There is a lot of extra's in this game. Great graphics for a game like this. The commentary is game is bad, only a few comments by the midway man and teh other guy is funny, but this games commentary is lame. This is a game to buy if you are sick and tired of football rules, you can do anything you want in this game. You should think about this game, its great.
Gameplay: The controls are a little getting used to. Usually in football games you would press B or to dive and tackle. In this it is Y. That was just a little irratating to me. The great thing is after every play it is easy to beat up the players. HahHA!!
Graphics: I never knew blitz can get its graphics to be this clear and good. Everything in this game is well detailed and clear. The players look good, and the arena also does. The only thing is the football. It looks so blah, as for the other blitz games, but that should be somthing to worry about.
Sound: From bodies hitting the ground to yelling the sound is clear and enjoyable. One of the commentary guys talks low each time he talks. That is a little hard to hear. AS for hitting people and calling hike, the sound is a strong point in this game.
Suggestions: INTERNET PLAY!!!!!!
