1. Introduction
---------------------------------
Welcome to my NFL Blitz 2000 FAQ/Walkthrough. In this FAQ you will learn the 
basics plus the Strategy that I use to win all the games I play.  If you 
don't believe me, you should go check out the wonderful FAQ I made on NFL 
2K.  I have gotten all good comments on it.  I will be updating this FAQ at 
least once a week so be sure to come back and read what I updated.  Please 
go read my NFL 2K FAQ and please go buy NFL 2K if you haven't, because it is 
a better game then NFL Blitz 2000.


---------------------------------
2. Update History
---------------------------------
January 16, 2000 - I decided to make this FAQ for Playstation and Nintendo 
64 too.  Also, make sure you check out my new website at: 
http://drethug.onlytoons.com/ultimatelive


November 22, 1999 - I had to post this great review by 
ciberrafa@hotmail.com.  It's a great review to read about the game.  This is 
the last version of this FAQ.

November 20, 1999 - I really don't enjoy working on this FAQ at all.  I get 
no support, no e-mail, and it's a pain.  So this is the last version of my 
NFL Blitz 2000 FAQ.  I hoped this would be as good as my NFL 2K FAQ but it 
fell way short.  I have added one last review for this FAQ.  I hope you 
enjoyed this FAQ, and please look for my other FAQs.

November 19, 1999 - I have added a review about the game.  You should read 
that.  That's all I have for now.

November 15, 1999 - I have been busy working on my other FAQs but I have 
made a small update.  I have added another review I made for this game.  
It's a lot better than the first one.  Hope you like it.

November 12, 1999 - I changed my mind.  I will be updating this just like my 
NFL 2K FAQ.  Hopefully, it will get more popular and I will get more e-mail 
about it.  I have added another review to the review section.  If you are 
thinking about buying the game and aren't sure, you should read that review. 
  That's all for now.

November 10, 1999 - I decided that I will not make this like my NFL 2K FAQ 
and I will not be updating it anymore.  I have gave you all the information 
you need on NFL Blitz 2000.  I am sorry, but I have two other FAQs that I 
enjoy working on.  This was just a FAQ I made when I was bored.  Don't look 
for another update but I may make one if I am extremely bored one day.  I 
still will answer and respond to e-mail you have about this FAQ or about the 
game.  Sorry and I hope you enjoy this FAQ.  Oh yeah, thanks to Steve 
(cripplerx@hotmail.com) for making the macro.

November 8, 1999 - I am using the same exact format I used in my NFL 2K FAQ. 
  I have made a new section called Sites That Host This FAQ.  These are the 
sites that I gave permission to put this on their site.  That's pretty much 
it for this small update, I will have another soon that is actually about 
the game.

November 7, 1999 - Welcome to Version 1.0 of my NFL Blitz 2000 FAQ.  I hope 
you enjoy the FAQ because it took a while to make.  You probably know who I 
am if you enjoy football games because I have made the biggest and best FAQ 
on NFL 2K.  Please check back at least once a week because I will be 
updating it a lot.  Also, please check out my NFL 2K FAQ that is wonderful 
to read.

at the VMU screen to see which play you have highlighted even though it is 
hidden to everyone else!

With the control stick (not D-Pad)on the first play in the top row in first 
play on the left corner hit up two times and the red marker or blue marker 
should not be seen. This works on offense or defense.

Personal Review:
---------------------------------
I bought the first NFL Blitz for Nintendo 64 a while ago.  When I saw NFL 
Blitz 2000 as a release for Dreamcast I was excited.  But I saw NFL 2K and 
wanted that game a lot more.  So I bought NFL 2K on 9/9/99 and I got Blitz 
for my birthday.  Blitz is a great game for people who don't really like the 
simulation that NFL 2K brings to you.  I am really happy that I got the 
game.  It is pretty much like the first version but the graphics are better, 
there are more plays, and the layout is better.  If you are thinking of 
buying NFL Blitz 2000 for Dreamcast and already own Blitz 2000 for N64 or 
Playstation then I highly suggest you don't.  All this game has over those 
games is the graphics are slightly better.  But if you own the first Blitz 
for N64 or Playstation I highly suggest you get this near arcade perfect 
game.  Its worth the 50 bucks.

Personal Review #2:
---------------------------------
When I heard NFL Blitz 200 was coming to Dreamcast I was very excited.  Then 
I saw previews of NFL 2K and decided not to buy it.  I got it for my 
birthday though and played it before Soul Calibur.  The graphics were a lot 
nicer, there were more plays, but it was pretty much like the original 
blitz.  I enjoyed playing it and I still do.  It's kind of hard to play it 
when you have NFL 2K though.

Gameplay: 9/10 - Hard hitting football action with no penalties.  This is 
fun with a lot of friends.  One player mode is a bit boring if you keep on 
playing it but if you have friends over or if you have brothers this game 
will never get old.  It's good to have if you are tired of NFL 2K.

Graphics - 7/10 - This game does not show what Dreamcast can do.  The 
graphics are a little nicer than the PSX version but they aren't close to 
NFL 2K's.  At least the guys look a lot nicer than they did in the original 
Blitz.

Sound - 10/10 - The announcers are great.  They have a lot of funny things 
to say.  The backround music goes nicely with the game.  A great game to 
have.  You should never play this game without the sound on.

Replay Value - 9/10 - This game will never get old.  The one player mode 
might get boring after you play the season mode of it.  Multiplayer mode 
will never get old though.  You can play with three other people so it's a 
great party game.  This game will not stay off your shelf until the next 
blitz comes out.

Overall - 8/10 - A quality game to have if you own Dreamcast.  It is worth 
the $50.00 for sure.  If you don't want to dish out the 50 bucks then I 
highly suggest you rent this game if you have friends over.  A great game 
overall.

Cheat Code Central Review (www.cheatcc.com)

The Blitz hits DC and it's one wild ride. Playing identical to its' cousins 
on the N64 and PlayStation, Blitz 2000 is a hybrid of the arcade game Blitz 
'99 and the home console versions of the original NFL Blitz. If you are 
afraid of the mind-numbing detail of Sega's amazing NFL 2K then Blitz 2000 
is your ticket to all-out arcade football action. The only problem you'll 
have with this game is knowing when to quit.


---------------------------------

Highs:
Better Than the Arcade Version of NFL Blitz '99
Football Newbies Can Play
Fast Action
Custom Play Editor
Four Player Party Mayhem
Ambulance Inducing Tackles
Lows:
Running Plays Tough to Pull Off
More Defensive Plays Needed

---------------------------------

We used to play Madden like this all the time; turn off the rules and the 
penalties and let's just play the damn game. Who has time for all of that 
offside nonsense? Unless you really know the game of football, you will get 
creamed in games like the aforementioned Madden, Gameday and the beautiful 
NFL 2K. A lot of people want the party atmosphere of a good competitive 
arcade game where brain cells are a bonus rather than a necessity. NFL Blitz 
2000 is that game.

With 7 players on the field and absolutely no rules whatsoever (except it 
now takes 30 yards to gain a first down), there is never any lag time in 
Blitz 2000. You are either running like hell to get a first down or you are 
running like hell to stop a first down. If the players are ever standing 
still for longer than 3 seconds than you had better check and see if the 
game has locked up. While on the offensive you'll have 3 pages of 
customizable plays to choose from. You can reverse these plays if you like 
or even change them at the line of scrimmage with an audible if you are 
facing a lineup you don't care for. Defense is given 1 page to choose from. 
If you want to play really smart, then select your plays with the VMU. For 
players without a VMU installed in their controller (who can afford 4 
VMU's?) they can press up twice at the play selection screen to hide the 
cursor so that it will be virtually impossible for your opponents to 
discover your plays.

Once the ball is snapped you can choose from the regular "point and pass" 
control or Blitz Passing which is a fancy name for Icon passing. Icon 
passing is when each receiver corresponds to a button on the controller. 
When the QB is frantically hunting for a man in the open, simply look for 
his icon and press the right button. I personally prefer this style and I am 
glad to see it in action on NFL Blitz 2000.

The fun of Blitz is the hitting, tackling and crushing of your opponents. 
You'll feel every hit when you take them down. And this isn't just fancy 
dive tackles we're talking about; you can flip these guys over with one arm 
while they are running! It takes awhile to get used to the control, 
especially when trying to line up tackles. Even though this game is easy to 
get into and play, expect to have a few games under your belt before you are 
really comfortable.

Visually this game is identical to the arcade. The other consoles did an 
admirable job but the horsepower under the hood of the DC makes this game 
definitely come alive at home. Along with the graphics and smooth framerate, 
you'll get sound bytes that are taken directly from the arcade and some new 
ones added for this version.

Porting just the arcade game over would have been decent enough but Midway 
included some staples of the other home versions which are the Tournament 
and Season modes. Take your favorites through an entire season and on to the 
Super Bowl if you are good enough. One to Four players can battle it out 
with either 2 on 2, 4 against the CPU...you name it. The Play Editor is a 
great way to enhance the game when you are tired of the same old plays. If 
you armchair coaches think you can make some better money plays, than this 
is your chance. Save your plays to the VMU and surprise your buddies the 
next time you play.

The surprising amount of options makes NFL Blitz 2000 a serious contender in 
home football games. It isn't as in-depth as NFL 2K nor does it try to be. 
What Blitz 2000 does, it does very well; namely provide a well presented, 
great looking, fast moving arcade experience that everyone can enjoy. The 
added bonuses of the Season mode, Play Editor and Four Player ability make 
this a must have!

NFL Blitz 2000, not a real big sim football game but its still hella fun to 
play with ok graphics and monster hits(especially after the play). This is a 
real fun multiplayer game when anything goes.
Gameplay(9/10) - There is no penalties, which means you can anything you 
want. The game is really fun on multiplayer, but it might get kinda boring 
after a while on 1 Player so have some friends over when playing this. Its 
not a sim like 2K but still very fun.

Graphics(8/10) - This looks the same as all the other versions of Blitz I 
have played which really upsets me with what it could be like in the DC.

Control(7/10) - I dont really like the controls for this game it makes me 
mad when you have to scramble and if you run right you will get killed but 
you need to go that way so you can throw it to that reciever but there is a 
way to set it, but I cant remember off the head.

Replay(9/10) - You will always be wanting to play this game again on 
mutliplayer but I dont think you will on 1 Player though because it gets 
kinda old without that good challenge and you also get to nail your friends 
after the play is over.

Overall(8/10) - The game is really fun, and its worth the money. The only 
problem is the graphics could have been better I think, but there isnt 
anything wrong with the game.

This would be a great renetal when you have alot of friends over, but if you 
have a bro who will play then I suggest you buy this game.

Zone64.com Review

When I first got my Dreamcast, of the three games I got, NFL Blitz 2000 was 
one of them. After playing Blitz for N64, I knew that I didn't even have to 
read any reviews, or the back of the box. This is the best extreme football 
game you can ask for, and will leave none of it's buyers disapointed.

When I popped the disc into my Dreamcast, right away I found it more fun 
then playing in the arcades. It is incredibly easy to get addicted to, and 
so much fun to play all the way. The graphics are just as good, they are 
top-knotch, high quality, whatever you want to use. The sound is so 
realistic too. You too will love the sound of the bodies crunching after a 
big hit.

My favorite part is the All New 4 Player Mode. My friends are always over, 
and we are having a blast just playing a realistic, anything-goes football 
game when we are bored. Ever pissed when your friend scores a touchdown 
against you? Stop his celebrating with a late hit. He will still get the 
points, but maybe you'll get rid of some of that anger eh?

Despite the minor bugs in the game, and the some-what silly AI, there should 
be no other complaints. The game seems to be a little rushed, and has 
crashed on me once in a blue moon.

NFL 2K is a more realistic-type game, but does not compare to the hard hits 
and rule breaking threats of NFL Blitz 2000. My advice to you is to get to 
your nearest gaming store and get NFL Blitz 2000!

ciberrafa@hotmail.com Review
---------------------------------
I can begin by saying that I have not personally played the arcade version 
of NFL Blitz 2000, nor its predecessor so I cannot say wether this is a 
faithful conversion or not; what I am able to say is that this is a solid 
game on its own, yet it suffers from some basic gameplay flaws.
NFL Blitz is to football what NBA jam was to basketball: basically it keeps 
the simulation side of the game to a minimum to create an almost fictional 
mode of play. First thing you'll notice when starting a game, is that there 
are only seven players for team; aside from that, there's no pass 
interference calls, you need thirty yards to achieve a first down, etc.

Graphically, Blitz for the dreamcast is nothing like you ever seen before: 
the players are highly detailed and it's easy to tell each player apart, the 
grid is also highly detailed and has different details like the grass or 
weather effects, everything running smooth at a consistent 60 fps, no 
noticeable slowdown in sight. Having a NFL license, all of the teams are 
included and feature perfect renditions of the official uniforms. There are 
new animations implemented, like those where a tackle grabs the running back 
by the arm and performs a wrestling lock on him, or the one where a tackled 
player loses his helmet and it flies spinning. I cannot grade the graphics 
less than 9.

Gameplay wise, Blitz scores big: the interface is intuitive and easy to 
master, the control is responsive and while the default button layout is 
rather akward, you can reconfigure it to your taste. Blitz features the one 
player game mode from the arcades where you pick a team and face the 
remaining teams on the league(other players may join in, two per team) a 
season mode, a tournament. This time around, midway has taken from previous 
NBA games and included the ability to set your players on fire, wich turns 
up the heat of the game, for once you achieve it your players have unlimited 
turbo and are harder to tackle or block- just score three complete passes or 
runs with the same player when on offense or two consecutive QB sacks when 
on defense.

One of Blitz's best assets is the ability to change your play on the fly by 
calling audibles; and you can even configure those in your playbook! Those 
happy owners of a Visual Memory Unit are in for a treat as the VMU enables 
you to choose your play and hide it from your opponent- talk about having 
the opposition guessing! - On the downside note, the customizable playbook 
eats up a good 90 pages from your VMU (bummer!) but I guess real football 
maniacs will appreciate the option to create their own offensive and 
deffensive plays. Noteworthy - 9

In the sound department, I feel that MIDWAY could've done better; I mean, 
the game has taunts, and you can hear your QB calling audibles, but the 
narrator and the players taunting grow really old really fast, there should 
have been a wider variety and ingenuity in the voice overs. The music while 
a tad repetitive keeps your adrenaline pumping. Good, but could've been 
better: 6

Fun factor: almost inexistent in one player mode, the CPU Ai is just too 
cheap once you start facing the latter teams, like forcing fumbles and 
intercepting passes in ways that you obviousy are not able to. But where 
this game shines is on multiplayer, now three other players can join in and 
have a two-on-two match. This is a classic party game from start to finish: 
7

Overall: BLitz is one game for football fans who cannot stand the simulation 
heavy Madden games, or want somthing more lighthearted and over the top. 
Stick to multiplayer tough, the CPU is way too cheap. NOTE: Those of you who 
would rather prefer the more statisctical side of football wait for more 
serious simulators. A game to spend the afternoon on: 7

What do you get when you cross the arcade version of NFL Blitz 99 with the 
N64 version of NFL Blitz and add a touch of magic? That's simple silly. You 
get NFL Blitz 2000 which is gonna eat you up. This is a great arcade game 
that is now starting to sport some more depth in the form of the once 
PlayStation elusive Play Editor. At the heart it's still a fast paced, no 
rules, no fear pigskin brawl that players of all ages will love. The 
inclusion of a 4 player mode and the little extras not found in the arcade 
version of Blitz 99 destine this game to be an instant fan favorite and 
classic!

You can't talk about football games without mentioning the game that changed 
an industry; Madden Football. Yes, Madden has its' place in video game 
history and rightfully so. For the millions of armchair quarterbacks out 
there who love the sim aspects of such games, all the power to you. But 
sometimes there is nothing better than a balls out game of no rules football 
to get the testosterone pumping. Blitz games remind me of the few games of 
football I played with the boys way back when. No rules, no refs, full 
tackle, no helmets or protection. It was insanely dangerous and stupid and 
I'd be a complete liar if I told you I wasn't terrified of getting my arms 
or legs broken or worse. That's why I only played "a few" games. I may be 
stupid but I ain't crazy.

In Blitz 2000, all of your favorite teams can be played, each with their own 
strengths and weaknesses. But all the stats in the world wouldn't matter; 
fans are still going to play their favorite teams no matter what, right? I 
mean otherwise what would be the point? You identify with your team for many 
reasons, the least of all having to do with their passing game or defense.

Just as in any sports game, arcade or sim, it is handy to know the rules of 
the game before playing. If you haven't played Blitz before, I'd say a 30 - 
60 minute learning curve will be in order. If you know nothing of football 
and have never played a football video game before, you might need to spend 
some extra-curricular time with this one. You must understand the ideas of 
passing plays, running plays, earning first downs and tackles before 
entering the gridiron. Picking up and playing Blitz isn't all that difficult 
due to the arcade style of the gameplay. Icon passing, where you hold down 
L2 and your 3 receivers have either a square, circle or triangle under them, 
(which means a press of that corresponding button will send the pass to 
them) is definitely suggested for beginners. This game is all about playing 
a speedy, action packed game of football just like the NBA Jam series. In 
fact, like NBA Jam if your team is doing well, they'll be on fire which 
means they'll be pretty hard to stop. Real football this ain't.

Comparitive to the original NFL Blitz on PSX, Blitz 2000 has been given a 
graphic upgrade. The graphics are cleaner and brighter and the animation is 
smooth and quick, making it one of the nicest looking and playing football 
games available on the PSX. I don't know if Midway increased the color 
palette from the first game (I don't have it with me to give a side by side 
comparison) but Blitz 2000 certainly does look more vibrant.

The one thing that has to be mentioned is the overall look and feel of the 
game. The whole package is beautiful right down to the loading screens, 
which you won't be seeing much of due to the quick loading. All I could 
think of while watching Blitz 2000 go through the different screens while 
starting a game is that this is one sleek looking presentation. Who doesn't 
love arcade production values?

The commentator dialogue has been improved and given quite a bit more to say 
so it doesn't sound so repetitive. The players talk trash every now and then 
after a play, when they are either helping each other up or piling on top of 
some poor guy. It's no NHL 99, but it does the job.

The gameplay is king in Blitz 2000. You can select from 3 pages (fully 
editable) of offensive plays or 1 page when on defense. You can even hide 
your selection so that players 2, 3 & 4 won't know what you are going to 
select. Once you get out to the line of scrimmage and see the opposing 
team's lineup which you don't like the look of, simply call an audible and 
change your play on the fly. And just wait until you see those bone 
crunching flying tackles. With the vibration feature on, you can feel the 
impact. Ouch. Play through an entire season or play the odd game. It's 
completely up to you.

As most video game sport franchises spit out the obligatory yearly upgrade, 
it's understandable that you might be hesitant to purchase almost the same 
game that you bought a year ago. In this case however, there is no choice. 
Blitz 2000 plays better, looks better and even smells better than last years 
entry. If you are a Blitz-Aholic than you have got to buy this game. The 4 
player mode makes Blitz 2000 the party game of choice. Just be sure that in 
your blind panic to get this masterpiece of gaming, that you don't 
accidentally purchase the absolutely terrifying NFL Xtreme 2. Shudder...

Elxalraj Review (founded at Gamefaqs.com)
---------------------------------
>From the moment i got my first Blitz i loved the addictive, arcade style, no 
rule football game.. i don't really like football games, but Blitz was SO 
fun, there are few to no aspects regarding more strategy other than moving 
your players like chess pieces and being able to knock out opponents without 
being penalized. I never played the arcade version, but i did own Blitz.. so 
i guess this allows me compare abit, but on the Playstation version alone.
The graphics are almost the same as the older Blitz, you can perfectly see 
players' movements.. even abit polygonal, they look amazing.. you get to 
tackle, punch, jump, etc.. every move is rendered to perfection even though 
i hear the arcade went at 60 frames per sec, the PS version goes at 30. 
Blitz 2000 also incorporates many new things from the past version, you get 
to see new stadiums (which is really a neat addition), and even at times 
weather conditions that affect gameply. Another easilly noted addition (as 
to gameplay and graphics) is the ability to be on fire, you get unlimited 
turbo and relatively more strength when running through the deffensive 
lines. As to your playbook, Blitz 2000 has around three times as much plays 
as the older version, and within the game an extra page full of em.. though 
you don't get to see them all at once and usually per game you get random 
assigned plays which are located in different spots as the last you played.. 
so atleast you know you'll have to go around your usual moves and each time 
create new strategies. Blitz 2000 incorporates a nice addition that the N64 
Blitz had and the PS didn't, the ability to create your own plays which can 
be saved and loaded.. also, this version lets you create your own deffensive 
lines (which as far as i know the N64 Blitz couldn't). Also, you can play a 
foursome using a multitap, one player is assigned a quarterback and the 
others a player that can run for pass or stick to a close running move, you 
can still play a tournament up to 9 players.. using two controllers, this is 
pretty neato too.

Being brought from the arcade.. and Midway.. other than the tight, fast, 
arcade style bashing of players, you get to create codes while the game 
loads.. either checking the exact combination or randomly hitting every 
button on your controller.. you get from easy codes as no CPU assitance (to 
prove yourself worthy without any help) to others like an invisible 
quarterback or big headed players.

In conclusion i guess all i can add is that Blitz 2000 isn't *really* a 
strategic simulation of real football, its the closest to an arcade you'll 
get.. fast and in your face, with no rules and no referree this game stands 
to being a REALLY addictive, fun game.. even if you don't dig football games 
(like myself).

NFL Blitz 2000 is a fun, addictive game, simple as that. Of course if people 
are actually looking for a football sim(and who would with Blitz?) will hate 
it. Quite frankly, the only reason this game didn't get a 10 is because it 
takes forever to save/load information.
Graphics:
The graphics are great in this game. They're not quite QB Club level, but 
they're still great. The one thing that surprized me about the graphics, 
Flutie got his helmet knocked off, and the face inside the helmet actually 
looked like Flutie! That's GOTTA earn it another point 9/10

Gameplay:
There isn't a lot to choose from in gameplay, as there's only turbo, 
pass/change player, and hurdle/tackle buttons. But what is there, is great, 
as Blitz is just there to have fun, not to showoff, or to do fancy tricks. 
8/10

Fun Factor:
Now this is where Blitz can destroy everything else. It is easily the most 
fun football game to play on the PSX. I mean, who DOESN'T love destroying 
your opponents way after the whistle? And kickers have it too easy in 
football, can't touch them? please. That's one of my favorite things to do 
in the game, just destroy the kickers. 10/10

GHuang Review (founded at Gamefaqs.com)
---------------------------------
NFL Blitz2000 is one of the latest football video games for the Sony 
Playstation video game system. It may be best summed up by its 
self-proclaimed motto: "No Rules, No Referee, No Mercy." What makes this 
game unique is its simple, no-nonsense, fast gameplay, emphasis on 
spectacular plays that one does not often see in "real" football, and last 
but not least its comical violence.
The basic premise of the game is for the offensive team to try to advance 
the ball 30 yards (instead of the usual 10) within four plays while the 
defensive team does whatever it can to stop them. As in traditional 
football, when one team reaches the other's endzone, a touchdown is scored. 
One can choose from 27 different offensive plays or create your own plays to 
humiliate your opponents. Similarly, you may also choose from a variety of 
preset defensive plays or create your own. NFL Blitz2000 is an extreme 
version of traditional football to say the least. In traditional football, 
referees are needed to enforce certain rules intended to prevent the game 
from getting out of hand and becoming excessively violent. However, in 
Blitz2000 there are no referees! This makes the game much more enjoyable 
without the trivial foul calls that usually only slow down the pace of the 
game. Without referees, actions that usually result in penalties, such as 
passing interference, roughing the passer, and performing late hits, are all 
perfectly acceptable. Feel like bodyslamming the opponent's quarterback? Go 
ahead. This is all in good-natured fun though. There is no blood, no body 
parts flying around, and no injuries that occur. Occasionally after a 
particular intense hit, the defenseman can be seen helping his fallen 
opponent up.

Moreover, showboating and trash-talking is emphasized and encouraged. For 
example, when a player scores a touchdown, he dances and ridicules his 
opponents in celebration. In traditional football, this is usually 
prohibited by the referees, something that is not a problem here. In 
addition, the hilarious announcer's commentary also adds to the comical 
aspects of the game.

Learning to play the game is fairly easy. There are no complex instructions 
or procedures that must be remembered. Just select your play and advance the 
ball to score. Defense comprises of stopping the man with the ball - simple. 
Those new to the game should be able to become accustomed to NFL Blitz2000 
after merely 15 minutes of playing. Even non-football fans (like myself) can 
learn to enjoy this game. Owners of last year's edition of NFL Blitz should 
also consider getting this new version. The quality of graphics and 
animations has been improved. New plays and the ability of creating your own 
plays are now available. The team rosters also have been updated to reflect 
the current football season. In the sound department, no major changes or 
improvements have been made. This is not necessarily bad since the announcer 
is still as good (or bad) as he was last year. Perhaps the most important 
improvement is the ability to have four player simultaneous play (compared 
to only two in last year's version). Keep in mind however, that a "Multitap" 
accessory (sold separately for approximately $22 - get a $10 coupon for 
Buy.com from my site: g126.cjb.net ) along with four controllers ($8 at Best 
Buy stores) are needed to enable this feature. It would be a good idea to 
rent this game first to see if the changes and improvements are worth 
spending $40 for.

For those of you looking for fast-paced, fun-filled game of football look no 
further. This game does not try to be a simulation of traditional football. 
It tosses most of the restricitive rules out the window and leaves only the 
bare bones necessary to have the most exciting and fun game of football 
possible. What makes this game even more enjoyable is the fact that you can 
have up to four players playing at once. Playing with actual human opponents 
increases the fun factor of the game tenfold. If you have a Playstation and 
some football loving friends then you must get this game!

FFlechas Review (founded at Gamefaqs.com)
---------------------------------
For starters, there a few minor setback and one HUUUUUUUUUGE setback about 
this game. Being that NFL Blitz 2000 is a football game, I thought this game 
would suck ass. I am not a very big fan of sports games, I mean, think about 
it. Ken Griffey Jr.'s Slugfest sucked. But this one took me by surprise.
Gameplay - 6 --> The huge setback. This game is great, and easy to beat... 
if you know how to beat it. The computer can sometimes cheat. The CPU will 
sometimes control you when you are trying to make a pass and will make you 
miss it (No joke, it happened to me twice.). To add more frustration, there 
are too many fumbles and interceptions. YOU fumble too much and THEY 
intercept too much.

Graphics - 7 --> One of the minor setbacks is that some of the players 
look... well, apparently fat. Their limbs look like the size of a minigun. 
Plus, their faces (Once the helmet comes off, yes, the helmet can come off.) 
look like a piece of crap.

Sound/Music - 10 --> Ouch. The sounds of you tackling the other player, 
however, happens to sound realistic.

Controls - 10 --> Even for beginners, (Like myself, for instance.) the 
controls are stable and easy to memorize.

Replayability - 9 --> This game is great, but frustrating. Since the 
computer cheats and all, this game can cause you to stay away from this game 
for a minute or 15.

Overall - 7 --> The statistics show a lot of different scales, but this game 
deserves a seven (7).

Rent or Buy First? - rent --> Lots of frustration is in store for this game, 
but if you have enough patience to withstand this game (And trust me, you'll 
need _A LOT_!), this game is worth playing. Anyone else should only play for 
a couple of hours.

Let me get this out first, this game is great fun, as long as you bring some 
friends along because the computer can get pretty boring to pla against. 
With that out of the way, I can say the rest of the game is a blast, 
starting with the graphics.
Graphics - 8
The graphics in this game aren't the greatest. They are very colorful, and 
plain, but it does the job nicely. The characters are also a little large 
and chunky, buts that alright, it justs add to the game.

Control - 9
With the addition of a brand new passing system for Blitz 2000, this game is 
far easier to play then the original. Instead of pushing the direction of 
the reciever you want to pass to, you have buttons assigned to each one, 
making less errors in passing. The characters also run around just like you 
would expect them to.

Sound - 7
The sound sounds fine, but it can get very repetetive after you've been 
playing for a while. The announcer isn't bad at first but after you've heard 
everything he has to say, you just won't care anymore, just like most sports 
games. The characters also make comments after the play, which are 
entertaining, but once again, after a while you've heard em all, and you 
just don't care anymore.

Gameplay - 9
This is what makes the game such a blast to play. It's super fast acrade 
football. This year around there is also an inclusion of a 4 player mode, 
which is great because now you and 3 of you friends can all play at the same 
time. You'll be cursing at you friends all night.

If you enjoy football games, but want something different, or you enjoyed 
the original Blitz, then I can't recommend this game enough, just remember 
to bring your friends along.

7. Personal Strategy
---------------------------------
If you play me at NFL Blitz 2000 you will get killed.  I am very good at 
this game.  For offense, all I use is Da Bomb.  I pretty much use Da Bomb 
for all my plays.  If I don't see any of the three recievers open, then I 
will run with the Quarterback.  Usually if you run to the left there will be 
no one there and you will get at least 15 yards.  On defense, I use Deep 
Zone and Middle Zone.  I use Middle Zone on 1st and 2nd down.  I use Deep 
Zone on third down and long.  If it is third down and short I usually use 
Middle Zone.  You should never punt if you want to win.  It is a big mistake 
because the returner will usually get half the yards back.  Just try to go 
deep.  If you use this strategy I use then you will probably win all of your 
games except when you are playing me.

10. NFL 2K vs. NFL Blitz 2000
---------------------------------
Thinking of buying a good football game for Dreamcast.  Well, right now 
there is one extremely good game and one average game.  NFL 2K has to be the 
best football game ever.  NFL Blitz 2000 isn't bad either though.  I got NFL 
2K on 9/9/99 and NFL Blitz 2000 on 10/23/99 and I play both of them.  I 
probably play NFL 2K more just because it is more fun.  In this long 
paragraph, I have listed what game is the better choice to buy.  Hope you 
enjoy it, and hope you buy at least one of these games.

Graphics
First off, NFL 2K is a great game graphics wise.  When you first walk into 
the room and you see someone playing NFL 2K, you think you are watching T.V. 
  This game has the best graphics next to Soul Calibur.  On the other case, 
NFL Blitz 2000 graphics are simple.  They are pretty much the same as the 
Playstation version.  While NFL 2K has differen't faces, jerseys with wholes 
in them, dirty pants, and stuff like that, NFL Blitz 2000 has the basics.  
So if you are looking for a game with good graphics, then make sure you get 
NFL 2K over NFL Blitz.

Graphics Results:
NFL 2K = 10
NFL Blitz 2000 = 7

Sound
This is a tough category.  NFL 2K has really nice sounds.  You can hear the 
players talk, the three announcers talk, and the crowd noise.  There is on 
the field coverage about the weather and stuff like that.  The announcers 
have funny things to say, but sometimes they say the same stuff twice in a 
game.  Most of the time the announcers are right about the stuff.  On the 
other hand, NFL Blitz 2000 also has good sound.  The announcers mostly say 
funny stuff that never gets old.  The players talk and say funny stuff also. 
  You can't really rate these games head to head on sound because they are a 
lot different.  I tried to thought.

Sound Results
NFL 2K = 9
NFL Blitz 2000 - 8.5

Gameplay
NFL 2K has to be the best all around game.  The gameplay is awesome.  You 
have to get use to running but once you get that down the gameplay is solid. 
  The games are usually pretty close when you play on All Pro with 1 or 2 
minute quarters.  The Al is pretty good.  NFL Blitz 2000 gets a bit old 
after a while.  The gameplay is more like WWF wrestling.  All you have to do 
is make sure you don't get body slammed or stuff like that.  Basic running 
and throwing.  The games are usually scored real high.  The Al is also 
fairly good for NFL Blitz 2000.

Gameplay Results
NFL 2K = 10
NFL Blitz 2000 = 8

Replay Value
Both of these games have the same amount of replay value.  When you have a 
friend over, you will probably play NFL 2K over NFL Blitz 2000.  But if you 
have three friends over, then you'll probably play NFL Blitz 2000 over NFL 
2K for two reasons.  One, Blitz is much faster and it has a great 4 player 
opition.  Also, it is more of a party game then a real football game.  
Overall, both of these games are going to last you a long time.

Replay Value Results
NFL 2K = 10
NFL Blitz 2000 = 10

Overall
Overall, NFL 2K beats out NFL Blitz 2000.  If you only have the money to get 
one football game, get NFL 2K, but if you can get both, please get both.

Overall Results
NFL 2K = 10
NFL Blitz 2000 = 9
