[edit] Background

This year's title has been completely reinvented by the original creators of the NFL Blitz arcade game to take advantage of the powerful next-generation platforms. All of the 3D player models, NFL stadiums, and over-the-top animations have been recreated along with the team-specific plays and intense sound effects. Take control and you'll know in an instant that this isn't your Daddy's NFL videogame.
