Blitz: Overtime (PSP)

 

Blitz: Overtime is a PSP update to Blitz: The League, which was released last year on the Xbox and PS2, and earlier this year on the Xbox 360. Generally speaking, this is very much the same brand of over-the-top, bloodthirsty football the console games...

What makes a football game fun? Is it the NFL license and careful attention to the details of said license? Is it realistic rules, pacing, and gameplay? Is it a deep franchise mode and 32 teams full of players you know and recognize? If Midway's latest...

What do you get when you strip the NFL license away from a pigskin game and throw in hookers, drugs, and tons of broken bones? You get Midway's Blitz: The...

Great Presentation ; Cool Achievements ; Entertaining Storyline ; Pure Arcade Action

AI Can Be Frustrating ; Visuals Are Not Very Next-Gen ; Not Enough Here To Warrant A Second Purchase

Blitz: The League

 

Late hitting, trash talking, bone crunching football has been the focus of the Blitz series for years. With an entry into the next generation world of consoles, Midway looks to recapture Blitz's popularity with an Xbox 360 version of the franchise. ...

Conclusion:By looking past the horrific graphics and poor storyline, one will see an entertaining, complex football game hidden in the mix. The campaign mode is a delightful change of pace from the stat-laden muck within the Madden series. ...

Chances are that if you're a football fan, you're either ecstatic at Madden's monopoly or hate it with a passion. Those looking for a non EA football game to play or just a change of pace are sure to have a blast with Blitz: The League. Either way,...

Blitz:The League

 

EA Sports' piggishness with the NFL license didn't just hurt Sega/2K Sports; Midway's decades-long NFL franchise, NFL Blitz, which got its start in coin-op arcades, also had to be redesigned from the ground up if the company wanted it to survive, after...

The kicking game has an intriguingly fresh approach ; Story mode has potential – most of it unrealized

The M-rated content is actually pretty juvenile ; The gameplay is strictly arcade-style pigskin; think Arena League, not NFL, at best ; Nonexistent defensive AI

Blitz: The League is to football what Grand Theft Auto is to racing game; but not in a good way.

Most sports gamers now know the story of Electronic Arts' sole possession of the NFL video gaming license. They know how other studios and producers were forced to discontinue their NFL game franchises, even when they were wildly popular. They know...

On the whole, I hope Midway never makes another NFL game again. Blitz: The League is its own universe now, and this Blitz far exceeds its NFL-based predecessors. I hope to hear from Midway and the likes of superstars Quentin Sands, Chad Longstreet,...
