NFL Blitz is the greatest football game ever. Before Blitz, football video games consisted of titles like Madden which tried to simulate the sport in a realistic fashion. That may work fine today, but for me it just wasn't fun. It was tedious and frustrating.
But hold onto your asses because here comes Blitz. They made a game that cut the bullshit and replaced it with action, lots of action. No more refs, or penalties . Any sense of fair play is gone, because this game will cheat you so hard, you will be on your knees screaming. This game was accountable for most of my broken controllers.
Do you remember those old Blitz arcade machines with the memory card readers? You could play your own team on an arcade machine. How many games have done that? Although it seems a little redundant, it's just icing on the awesome cake that is Blitz.
