New York, NY - - Blitz The League II goes where no game has gone before. Former New York Giants great Lawrence Taylor is still the star of the show and now comedian Frank Caliendo and actor Jay Mohr lend their voices to really spice up this game.
This is a rogue game and the league would have been very well received back in ancient roman times based on the brutality that takes place on the field and the overall debauchery.
LT welcomed the crowd, gave them the finger and then got into talking about this game and what went into it. The party was tremendous and the food and atmosphere was top notch.
The first thing in the game that catches your eye are the scantily clad cheerleaders (on the PS3) and the inventive camera work that goes where no video game has gone before. There are things in this game that you will never see in Madden and probably didn’t see in Mutant League football back in the day.
This game has its pluses and minuses. I really liked the look of the unusual stadiums and the way that the snow and rain looked. The rain actually gets the camera lens wet and I love that. The game is easy to play, it’s easy to pass and make key hits on defense.
I like the originality of the game, the blood when you have an after the play altercation or beat down, and the raw language that gives this game a parental warning.
I don’t like the way QB’s make jump passes and every slinger seemed to be too mobile. There should be some pocket passers in this league. I also thought the fans could look a bit better.
All in all this game stands well on it’s own and it’s original and funny. It’s an unlicensed game that is doing very well and that’s a victory for Midway for sure. This title sold 1 million copies last season and it should do slightly better than that this year.
