Arcade football fans gather 'round, the Blitz is back and it's back hard. We got to check out NFL Blitz in action to find out what this game is all about. Hint: It's about punching a defender in the face.
"On top of the legions of sports gamers who’ll welcome this franchise return, HD no less, the simplicity of the control scheme will surely gain a new following as well. In the context of the media event where I got hands-on time with the game, I held my own against industry colleagues with just knowing the hike, throw, turbo, and juke buttons, so learning additional moves came easy. There’s certainly a high level of pacing you don’t get in Madden; you even have the option of trying for the extra point with a single button press without actually seeing the play unfold, just like in the original titles."
