Blitz - The League is an American Football game for Xbox 360. It contains fictional teams and on the surface would appear extremely inferior to the popular Madden games. There are far fewer options for plays than Madden which can make gameplay boring and repetative.
However, Blitz - The League gives the player better point-of-view gameplay. There is far more violence than Madden making it almost "Street". First downs are awarded at 30 yards as opposed to 10 yards in a conventional football game. Penalties do not exist and there is no refereeing. A "Clash meter" is a key part of the game. Once it is charged it allows the player to make quick dodges, big hit "dirty" tackles and "dirty" stiff arms. This adds a new turn to the conventional Madden games which means it excels Madden in some ways.
The graphics aren't as good as those in the Madden series. However, there are nice effects such as a zoom-in x-ray shot of bones breaking whilst making dirty tackles.
In conclusion, if you're looking for a realistic American Football game with real teams, real players and lots of plays, this game isn't for you. However, if you want a game full of added perks, sick camera shots and the ability to make dirty hits, then there is no alternative.
The series known as NFL Blitz pushes on without the NFL license into an all-new realm of dramatic and intense football, as Midway goes behind the scenes to bring you lifestyles, controversy, and the nitty-gritty real world of pro football players. Blitz: The League exposes the harsh and troubling, behind?the-scenes stories of a fictional professional football league.
