I thought the last one on the PS2 was a fine game.

I'll be checking for this.....where's BlitzKraig?

yeah, I just got the 360 one from ebay for pretty cheap and I haven't even looked at what it got rated. It was decent for what it is. Would like to see how they build on it.

It's actually taking the no license thing to the natural route of mocking the NFL and making the game over the top. I'm sure this idea sells better than a vanilla generic game like APF.

Surprisingly I enjoyed the game more than APF. Probably put more time into it as well.

I barely played APF with a friend, but I played Blitz: The League for a while...I hope they add a bit to the single player and maybe give you some sort of long term type play (franchise or something), but it was a fun arcade game. After a while it got old offline, but I think they could add more and make it better.

My main problem with it as well, the longevity (or lack thereof) offline. I didn't have XBOX Live at the time I had the game as well, so online wasn't an option for me at that point.

It was a blast to play though.

I'm looking forward to any non-EA option, as I've vowed to vote with my dollar and have done so for the last two years, but I'm with Grunt on the quality of APF. That game was revolutionary and still plays the best game of football to date, IMO, even without the bells and whistles of franchise mode, customization, etc.

I agree, however it's frustrating knowing what APF could have been. They hadn't put out a football game since 2k5, so what was the rush to get a game out with less than a year of dev time? They certainly could have pushed it back 6 months, or a year, and it still would have sold at least as well as it did. 2k is capable of total package games, giving us gameplay, depth, and presentation. They didn't do that with APF though, and it's sad.

On the other hand, Blitz has the built in audience from last year, better sales, brand recognition, and the unique direction they took their story driven franchise mode.

Word. Without the need to push the dev. cycle to match the season cycle, there's no reason they couldn't have taken the time to add in the stuff you mention, and I would really love to have seen it in the game. I am lucky enough to have a good group of online friends to play with, otherwise this game would be dead. That said, I have always preferred offline gaming, and I'll be looking forward to Blitz II for the immersive sense of history and identity that it will give relative to APF and the ability to play through multiple seasons.

In some ways, APF is the best football game to hit the market, but it is also the most tantalizing failure because so much of its revolutionary potential is likely to go unrealized. I will tell you this much: I payed $60 for that game, got every buck's worth out of it, and will NEVER sell it.

But back on topic, I never played the first Blitz--is the gameplay as compelling as APF, or even close? Or, is the appeal mostly in its over-the-top approach?

Over-the-top. Big hits and big plays.
