"I really great game and an improvement over the other blitzes"
The graphics were not bad for this game, they just did not wow me like the graphics in the Madden series. But this game was not made to be pretty, it was made to be brutal. This game would get a much lower score if it was not on this platform. The proportions of the players are off. This is no different than any other game in this series. This game would get a 3 for graphics otherwise.
Again, this would be rated much lower if it were not for the concept of this game. This game would get a 2 from me here if I were rating one of the Madden Series. The sounds themselves are pretty good, nothing like hearing the sounds of a bone crunching hit. Other than this positive, there really is nothing else to brag or rag about here
Really unfair to hurt this games rating because of a lack of stroyline (this is a sports game you know.) So I will leave this on alone
The gameplay in this game is very solid to say the least. With the addition of the Create a Blitzer this game becomes even more fun. I love being able to press a C button and pass the ball to a receiver. This did cause problems though because it tended to choose the wrong receiver. Another knock against the gameplay for this game is that there was no real stright running play. You selected it and you had to manually toss the ball to the running back. This is a positive in the same light because every play could be anything. This made multiplayer games much more fun because you could do anything with every single play (something you could not do with Madden). Blitz was made to be a gimmick game so it had to be something special. I love that there is no penalties in this game so that you can do anything. The best defense is illegal defense. Basically this game was made to be a gimmick and the gameplay played right into it.
Here is how I rate games: Storyline/Gameplay = 80%, Everything else = 20%
So this game gets a 7.5/10 and that rounds out to an 8
