If you loved the first, well, shucks, you know how the saying goes. I played the beans out of the arcade game and took on the best in our company, with only a few losses. I know the dang game inside and out. Blitz 2000 is different than the arcade version, in subtle ways. Like I couldn't do my sneaky rush the passer move by busting through the line with a selection of buttons. That sucked. Still, the four-player mode is where it's at! That rocks hard. It adds a completely new depth to a game that desperately needed it. I wonder, though, about Blitz. Is it eventually going to become so filled with options and similarities to "other" football games that it will simply become boring and bland? Right now, it's not. NFL Blitz 2000 isn't a giant leap over last year's game, but it filled in all of the areas it needed to, making it equal to the N64 version. It's balanced, deeper, multiplayer, and still as fun as the first one.

People who haven't seen Blitz '99 in arcades yet are going to be blown away by the additions and tweaks that have been made since the original Blitz was released on the PlayStation. Veterans of Blitz '99 will welcome the ability to finally play the updated game at home, and the new Y2K add-ons don't hurt, either. NFL Blitz 2000 still has a firm lock on the arcade football business.

The addition of the four-player mode gives NFL Blitz 2000 a significant advantage over last year's version. If you're after a deeper football game or something that you can play alone, getting Blitzed isn't the right choice (the right choice is NFL 2K). But if arcade style football is your thing and you plan on having your whole crew over for a party, this game should make you happy.

Schuld an der niedrigeren Wertung ist in erster Linie die viel zu grobkörnige, teils Clipping-gepeinigte Bröselgrafik (Ok, schnell ist sie) und die oben angesprochenen Kleinigkeiten. Wer also auch Segas 128-Bitter sein eigen nennt, dem rate ich ganz klar zur grafisch übersichtlicheren, akustisch klareren, knapp 10 DM teureren DC-Version! Hoch leben vier Controller-Ports!
Mega Fun (Jan, 2000)
Technisch ist NFL Blitz 2000 auch keine Offenbarung. Die Spieler wirken sehe kantig und holprig animiert. Der Sound geht in Ordnung, auch wenn der Kommentator nicht gerade über einen sehr großen Wortschatz verfügt. Fazit: American Football-Anhänger oder Leute, die auf verzerrten, regelfreien Sport stehen, könnten mit NFL Blitz 2001 glücklich werden, besonders dann, wenn man zu viert gleichzeitig ans Leder geht.
