So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

What do these ratings mean?

This game is a sicker version than than the previous verzion, and sick being great, the concept and overall visualization is bad a** but even thought it lack some of the real concept of football, Midway truely stepped up there game on this one!!!!! The story line in the beginning leaves little to the imagination. Even though the create a character isn't an option for the game the mini interview makes up for the lacking on midway part. Calling plays is somewhat meaningless, unless you know about the game, but the diagrams are a tad bit small but it doesn't require deep processing to pull off a great play, the downfall of it being that you only have 20 sec to pull one off. Selecting players on the field can be a little mind boggling, but again if you know what you are doing you should have no WORRIES. The Unleashed moves are more submissive this go round now even though it seem massive when pulling off a great blitz . Some may whine and complain about it being difficult to just tell which athlete you’re currently controlling but how hard is it to follow the circle you're controlling, as the jumble of bodies obscures the marker. The thing about Blitz I enjoy is the ‘CLASH’ in the game. Blitz The league 360 first was more of a free for all battle for the icons but this new version bases it's self entirely off your game playing abilities. So bottom line if you suck YOU SUCK!. This features comes down to a range for special tackles and unique moves, and while on offense, for slowing down time so you can better react to tackle attempts. This clash meter has a sort of relax time after each usage, so smoke 'em if you got 'em if not your loss. Now in order to achieve the unleashed status you have to build it up by making worthwhile plays and yardage. So either if it's defense or offense make it count. The single-player game is interesting in its use of an entertaining press conference system and choices you make through out the game You get to play an obnoxious, arrogant, self-absorbed prick of an athlete, but who does know how to make things happen. The Detail in Blitz looks good at when i play in the mud i want to look muddy if i play in the rain i want to look wet. The animation is great whenever it's running the ball looking at the fans or beating the heck out someone midway did it this time.Now, the voice-acting is extremely well done, and the soundtrack selections were good. . Overall, Blitz: The League II is great football game when not confusing the concept against that of NFL Madden, where as here is a game where you can take you frustration out on an opponent and make it count! If you want the overall strategic point of football stick to Madden but if you want that extra edge where the ref doesn't flag you for every notion Blitz is the game, unless you are the type that can only play what mom approves
