Review by Psycho Penguin
"Forget loading times, Blitz on any system ROCKS!"
NFL Blitz is one of my favorite arcade game sof all times, and despite the loading times and slowdown, is almost as good on the Playstation. it odes the arcade game justice.
The graphics are superb. The backgrounds are well done, and the detail in the players is phenomenal. The only reason i don't give a score of 10 is because there is sometimes a lot of slowdown, and I don't like the design of the title screns.
The control in NFL Blitz is solid and very good overall. However, like most arcade games, it does have its flaws, which is changing your active receiver. As soon as the ball is snapped, you have to toggle the joystick to the left or right to change the active receiver, while trying to avoid the defenders.
NFL Blitz is so poluar because it is not your average football game. you can forget all the rules while playing, because there are no rules in Blitz!! Yep, late its are rampant and reccomended. There are a total of 27 offensive and nine defensive plays to choose from. Also, you are automatically given a free point if you chose an extra point kick.
FUN FACTOR infinite
NFL Blitz is simply the best sports game of all time, as well as the most fun. While hardcore fans will fall in love with the football action, non-football fans will enjoy it because of the fun gameplay. Get Blitzed today!
