I have never loved any football game as much as NFL Blitz, and I have never loved a Blitz game as much as Blitz 20-02. No GameCube owner should be without this game. It is very enjoyable, providing you and your friends with several hours of entertainment.
NFL Blitz 2002 is the best arcade-style football game on the home market.
Overall, NFL Blitz 20-02 is a must-own for any fan of the original series. This is a huge upgrade in the graphics department, and the gameplay is solid as ever. It doesn't do much more than the original game, and is a little short on single player fun. For pure, arcade-style football action, there's nowhere else to be.
As a penny-pinching consumer, you know you shouldn't buy this. Still, it's damnably fun and addictive. Besides, only a complete jackass would miss the opportunity to see Blitz as it was truly meant to be. Weighed from a standalone viewpoint, yes, 20-02 is a standout game. Viewed alongside peers like NHL Hitz--plus its own venerable predecessors--a lot is left to be desired. We're all for bone crunching tackles and career-ending cheap shots, but hey... is a little innovation so much to ask for?
All Game Guide
Midway surprised a lot of people with NHL Hitz 20-02, and the decision to inject their fast-action brand of sports titles into other venues is probably a wise one. As long as they are serious about making games with enough extras to make them worth purchasing, there will be few complaints. If they continue to slap a year on the packaging along with a few half-hearted features, as they did with this title, their audience is going to ignore them. Perhaps the real changes were in store for NFL Blitz 20-03, which debuted a mere six months after the release of this title.
