aight let me start by saying this, if you want a simulation of real football then go rent madden 09. if you want a fun, hard hitting, sometimes cartoonie, most times gory, arcade style football game, then blitz the league 2 is for you, the graphics look better and feel much much smoother than the last blitz game. has online games, trophies. the only downside is the campaign mode, it has 3 tiers which equals 3 years in the game, but each "season" is only 8 games long, this game would really benifit from a longer season mode that you could build your team up thru the draft. of course you can give your players steriods and boosting drugs. all in all it brings back memories of the old BLITZ arcade game from the late nineties.

Not a great game, period.
If you loved the old school NFL Blitz and are sick of playing madden, this is the closest you are going to get to a decent arcade football game. (note: I have yet to play NFL tour, though it looks stupid) Some parts are hilarious with the cursing, gory injuries, late hits, blatant use of steroids and ridiculous commentary. When this game gets to be $10 I will buy it just because I love the old Blitz.
However, this game that is not very exciting and the teams and players are pretty dumb. If you love football, you will like most parts of this game. I don't see it as a good multiplayer game because the controls take a few games to really understand the Clash meter and how to use it.
Defense sucks in this game, it is hard to sack the QB and though you can still knock down receivers in their routes, it is much harder than in the old Blitz.
Overall, it is a very different game, not suited for every football fan.
