[With the NFL season officially over, NFL Blitz lead/producer David Ross and designer Yuri Bialoskursky give you 5 reasons to get your hands on the new re-released NFL Blitz game.]
1. Are You Ready For Some Football?
The first reason why you should buy NFL Blitz is because it's a frantic, over-the-top, arcade action classic NFL football game. It's an awesome way to engage with the NFL without having to know all of the strategies behind a simulation football game. We've been working on the game for a year and a half. That's how long it took to get the game going and out of the door. We stay in close contact with our community and we feel like we have a sense of what our fans like and what they want to see. -David
2. Down & Out
The second reason to definitely play NFL Blitz has to be our huge online feature set. We've got a number of different online modes. We have Blitz Battles where you can play head-to-head with people online or with teams where you can join up with a friend and go against other two-man teams. There's a league where you can build your own team from the ground up. You can even risk one of your players with pink slips. There's just a bunch of ways you can play NFL Blitz online. My favorite online feature is Elite League. You can craft your team whatever way you want, you can use your Blitz bucks that you earn from playing online in the Blitz store and create this team in whatever way, shape for form you want. Then you go out and play against other teams and can even take other people's players in our "Risk & Reward" feature. -Yuri
3. Can You Hear Me Now?
Number three reason would be because we have Tim Kitzrow back, who has done NBA Jam, doing the voice for NFL Blitz back in the booth alongside Brian Haley. They're giving you humorous commentary in the game, so it's a lot of fun and you're always hearing something fresh when you play. When we started the project, we knew we wanted to get Tim involved in the project. We wanted him to not only get involved with the commentary but with the writing as well. He was more than happy to jump in with his partner Brian Haley. The two of them have a background in comedy and they were able to just play off each other. They came up with volumes and volumes and volumes of commentary. -David
4. Dressed Like a Champion
For the fourth reason, I would have to say just look at all of the improvements you can see in this new version. We have the high definition visuals and on top of that, we're really able to take control of all the online features and design. NFL Blitz has always been a competitive team and being able to now play against someone sitting next to you on the couch or anyone online, that's an awesome thing. It was critical to make sure we had HD in the game. It's awesome to be able to see these players in crisp, high quality features. Being able to see the HD and hear the sound, it's a huge transformation from the old game. -Yuri
5. Draft Day
The final reason is because when you look at all of the features we've talked about and this great experience you can have, it's all available for only $15 when you go to the Playstation 3's PSN store or X-Box Live. -David
