Playing in The League is your dream but you've paid the price. Your arms ache from weight-room reps and painkillers are blurring your vision. The dirty hits you've laid on QBs are career-enders but they also keep you employed.

Blitz League
4 Star Review  GameSpy - Oct 25, 2005

No rules. No apologies. No NFL license. And no denying it ... Blitz is back and it's bigger, badder, and more hardcore than ever.

4 Star Review   By member DirtyPudding - Mar 19, 2006   

Strengths: Fun, pick up and play football game. Mature rated goodness. Online play. Lots of unlockables

Weakness: No custom soundtracks!!!

Blitz The League is a fun and fast paced arcade football game. There is no NFL license holding the game back this year which allows the game to be even more violent than ever before. All the stuff the NFL doesn't want you to know about is in this game. Steroid use, hookers, gambling are in this game, along with all of the trash-talking and bonebreaking that takes place on the field. The game features online play where you can take you custom created team and play against others. The game does not feature a custom soundtrack feature which really hurts it since the in-game soundtrack is not very good. All in all, this is a great football game to pick up and play, even if you are not really into sports games.

4 Star Review   By member subhumanx1 - Mar 14, 2006   

Strengths: Incredibly fun gameplay, solid visuals, humorous commentary and trash talk

Weakness: AI can be break-your-controller-cheap, the "story" interferes with custom teams

As someone who can't play Madden to save his life, I found Blitz to be a surprisingly entertaining game. This game is just downright fun, however don't take that Mature rating too lightly. If you're not ready for some foul-mouthed, bloodthirsty action, then stick to Madden. Otherwise, join the party. Midway did an outstanding job making a football game without the NFL lisence. Playing the game is a blast. Beating the opposing team senseless will make you forget all about playing as your favorite NFL team. The game is built around playing dirty and having the mouth to back it up. The more illegal hits and, of course, good plays you make, the more fun it gets. You earn "clash" which basically builds up a meter that allows you to make outstanding plays, brutal hits, and when full, makes you pretty much untouchable if you can pull the play off. The custom teams are a nice touch, but do not leave you much room to customize. Once you make your team, you'd better make sure it's the way you want it. Once your season starts, there's no way to change it. Players, however, can be changed at any time, but again, not too much to mess around with. Great if you just want some names to go with your skull-fracturing hits so you can get right into the game and play, but dont expect to customize attributes or have a vast array of player models to pick from. Multiplayer is fun, and the Xbox Live play is a nice touch. The only problem I really had with the game is at times the AI can be insanley cheap. Be prepared for some unessecary fumbles, weak defense when you need it most and Juggernaut-esque punt returns by the AI. But these plays do not overwhelm the game so it's forgivable.

4 Star Review   By member ranahalt - Jan 8, 2006   

Strengths: Good graphics

Weakness: Night games are too dark.

Overall, the graphics are very good. I would highly reccomend this game. I purchased it for my husband and he was very happy with it. Only downside is the nightgames are a bit too dark.
