As a long time Blitz player, i was a bit bummed that they said they'd retired Blitz. Wow, did they shock me when this came out. It still has the strange motion problems that's far from the real thing, but it's definitely improved Since Blitz Pro. The characters arent Huge and bulbous, and they have noticely, well, grown up with the language and dirty hits. LT playing NY Nightmares, and even the leagues best player was great. This game has it s up's and Downs and its kind of a bad list.

Up's: Hard hitting style, Clash and unleash, and each team having it's star players.

Downs: Only able to draft two of your own players, the movement style of the game, the money you start out with, the price of things, and the skill level of other teams.

So, as much as it's added, it still has to have some big improvements done, but they've got something with this. the graphics are way better thank to the 360's HD, but not nearly as good as some others, like madden, but this has to be one of midway's best games. I would give this game a 7 1/2 rating.

This game was very fun to play. I was very skeptical at first because of all the bad reviews, but this is a game you will have to play for yourself and you be the judge. The graphics are great. The action awesome. The Unleashed Mode in the game is the coolest part. Also how you buy equipment for your team. Also you can buy steroids for certain players. This was an awesome game not too easy not to hard it was perfect.

OK I know it seems like a straight port from the xbox game with no new awesome graphics, but the game is pretty fun.

We had fun just jumping in and playing and fighting on the field. We haven't tried the career mode yet, we have been having fun spending 20 minutes throwing passes and doing dirty hits.

It is fun for 2 players, single player is ok, but the real fun is playing with someone else. It's funny because you end up doing a lot of smack talk.

2 big problems with the game:

1. Load times are unbearable. We've turned off auto save to make them quicker.

2. Running game is too hard. Need to make it easier to rush.

It is worth a rent especially if you have someone to smack in the face!!
