Very Good

More of the same from the first game

The title says it all, this game is very similar to Blitz: The League, but it's a sequel, so what would you expect?

This game takes everything that made the first game interesting, and added enough to keep it from getting old too quickly.

The graphics and sound have been beefed up quite a bit, and there are some cool new features that keep things original. You can now do late hits that add even more damage to players after the whistle is blown, you can target specific areas of players to make sure that you hurt them as badly as you'd like, and there's a new mini game that you play when 'juicing' a player, which allows you to have more control over the outcome, rather than just leave it to chance.

Additional teams and stadiums have been added, and the cheerleaders look less classy than ever before.

The season/franchise/career/w- hatever mode is prett deep for a game with such a simple concept.

If you liked the first game, there's definitely something here for you. Most football fans, and probably fans of wrestling and fighting games will find Blitz: The League II to be a relatively enjoyable experience.

The only downside is that if you don't play the career mode, the gameplay can get old pretty fast.

well well this game surely did impress me.
after being a hardcore madden fan i didnt expect this "fake" football game to bring me much fun. i was proven wrong.
its actually pretty fun and addictive, after playing the first blitz the league i thought it was a shame to football humanity. this one made me change my mind it was very fun. the "clash" hits are entertaining(its always nice to see someone rupture their scrotum)..
a pretty good campaign mode which has you battling out through 3 divisions.
..some complaints i did have though is that the gameplay is choppy, it doesnt have that "smooth" feel you see in football games. and you will realize this on the 1st snap of the ball. another thing would be the difficulty i found this game pretty easy for the most part. i found my self blowing out teams by like 30+ points. other than that this was a pretty fair game. should keep you entertained for a while.
if you wanna game add my psn fern91

Very difficult to pull off all of the special moves that you need in order to get the trophies. The story line is what keeps you in the game. Of course landing the big hit on defense and even offense is always cool. Not recommended for children at all, the game is far to vulgar.
