Given the technology, this game is quite an achievement. When passing, it takes skill to "thread the needle" between the defenders. When running, you can use your blockers to slow down pursuers. Best of all, when a player is tackled - he explodes! You won't see that in Madden! After each game a nice statistics screen is presented. I thought that was a really nice touch. There's also a one-player mode, but it's only intended for practice. Blitz is a pleasant surprise. It's a fun, competitive game on a system not known for sports titles.
Blitz! ist eine American Football-Fassung, die taktisch brillante Spielzüge hervorragend realistisch simuliert. Man kann seine Feldspieler variantenreich aufstellen, gleichzeitig gegeneinander oder gegen den Computer antreten. Die Originalregeln dieser in den USA beliebten, bei uns wenig bekannten Sportart werden auf Blitz! übertragen, und das ist auch das Problem: Im deutschen Sprachraum kennt kaum jemand die Regeln. Deshalb ist man auf das angewiesen, was der Hersteller meint, mitteilen zu müssen. Damit scheint er offenbar gewaltig überfordert.
