Gamernode writes: "Blitz: The League II is the second in Midway's anti-NFL football franchise, designed to highlight and glamorize the less wholesome aspects of the game. With no NFL license the developers have gone the extra mile to keep things interesting via plenty of rough play, injuries, drugs, and nightlife. This is no simulation.
The "official" game of football is almost of secondary concern in Blitz. The storyline sets The League up as an alternative association to the NFL, which is exactly the stance that Midway has taken against the likes of Madden and EA's exclusive NFL rights deal. In Blitz, there are fewer men on the field, and the point is simply to play hard, score points, and hurt your opponents."
