Electronic Arts and Madden NFL may own the licensed football gaming market, but one other franchise has proven there is room for two pro football simulations. Midway's Blitz: The League bucked the notion that a football game needed a pro license and performed well in retail despite not being an NFL-sanctioned game. Now the fictional league, colorful characters, and over-the-top action can be sampled for free on the Xbox 360. A free demo, weighing in at 1.35GB, is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace for Xbox Live Gold members. The demo will be available for Silver subscribers next week. For more information, read GameSpot's review of the game.
Actually I am glad that there are better and more original football games out there besides those bad EA ones.
Blitz is fun no doubt but WHERE IS CASTLEVANIA:SYMPHONY OF THE NIGHT??!! Stop teasing me!!! We want Alucard! We want Alucard!
Blitz is nice and all for unrealistic football, but want I really want is to see a comeback of Mutant League Football/Hockey!
I would have to say that this is much more fun to play than madden for me. Midway is going in the right direction with this franchise. Clean up the graphics, improve the multiplayer and add the usual tweaks to franchise mode and we should have a serious competitor for madden.
dam thats goin take forever for me to download haha.. 1 gb takes a whole day well i gotta start tonight lol
I'm going to have to buy this game if I want a football one because Sega doesn't make one anymore and I can't stand Madden.
I'm a madden guy and don't like that kind of football games either. not my cup of tea but sure it's a good game
i tried the demo. maybe i missed somthing but the graphics were butt and it played like ps1. horrible
Just tried the demo... I hate it when they let you play only one period/quarter... just like in the NHL 2K7 demo... Just rent it to get a better idea of the game...
the amount of time i spent playing the first nfl blitz game on the ps was just sick. it was the only football game i truly enjoyed.
Fresh new demos are always exclusive to Gold members the first week. I downloaded the demo yesterday. :P
I just checked today(tuesday)at 23:45 GMT and theres no demo?So where is it?This better be put on EURO servers too pleeeeeeeeeease!
