Summary:

In Blitz: The League II, the series once again offers a dramatized view of football, this time featuring a Campaign mode penned by Peter Egan, writer for the ESPN series Playmakers. Other new features include precision-aim tackling that lets players target a specific area of an opponent's body, a new selection of vicious tackles that shatter helmets, break bones, and knock out teeth, an enhanced Clash mode for special maneuvers, and player-controlled touchdown celebrations. Hall-of-Famer Lawrence Taylor reprises his role as the tough-as-nails player Quentin Sands, while comedians Jay Mohr and Frank Caliendo round out the cast, portraying "The Agent" and "The Prison Warden" respectively.

To be honest, I am not a fan of over-the-top moves that do not even happen in real life except by accident. But Blitz has taken this fall and applied it to itself for another edition and made it amusing to players who even chew on realism for their video-games.

We know you want violence and being able to put some real damage to your enemy to get them out of the game is done easily by blitz. Oh come on, don’t tell me you didn’t want to drop kick that guy on number 15?

Since the game also utilizes violence for the game play (hey this is football), the new installment allows players to target specific enemy body parts to injure and get them out of the game for your advantage. If in the case that you get damaged by the opponent, you can patch things up with a steroid injection and get yourself back in the game. You can also add more damage to your opponent as the late hits are still on this one and you can taunt the enemy right after you tackle the crap out of him, or even do a bit more and physically hurt the opponent. Pretty cool huh?

The game is like an underground football game that it even allows you to select an expensive illegal drug to feed your star players before you go out and play the game. This is illegal in real life but really fun in game as doing something sneaky adds thrill and enjoyment. No wonder your players are too strong.

But you can expect Blitz to have pitfalls of its own. For instance, the same setting where the game takes place as that of the first installment is pretty boring. It’s not like this is part 2 of a movie, this is just a second edition/installment and thus it does not necessarily mean to be on the same place as that of the first one.

The graphics are pretty awful, the movements are rigid, and the characters look like they are boxes running here and there with the edges not fixed appropriately. The rain effect in some portions of the game was supposed to enhance the graphics but really it didn’t do that. As a matter of fact, it even adds fuel to the flame and compromises the graphics even more.

The presence of Jay Mohr and Lawrence Taylor is nice but it doesn’t really prove anything. The presence of Frank Caliendo is great but we wished that he had more lines than just repeating what he said over and over.

Overall the game does nothing to prove itself or even redefine the idea of football games. But this does not mean that you can leave it on a shelf. If you are just looking for a wonderful time in bashing opposing football team members than you may want to try this one out.
