Electronic Arts has announced that the all-new HD version of NFL Blitz is now available via digital download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 1200 points and PSN for $14.99. NFL Blitz features the arcade-style gameplay that made the original game a hit, but takes the experience to a whole new level with immersive online game modes in high-definition. Back in the day I used to really enjoy NFL Blitz, but the last few installments have really failed to impress. From what I’m hearing, this version isn’t everything that folks would have wanted and it may be that gaming fans just aren’t interested in this type of title anymore, especially one that seems to play it much safer than the original that some folks loved so much.
The recharged NFL Blitz offers fans the opportunity to battle rivals 7-on-7, fight their way through the Blitz Gauntlet, take over the online leaderboards in Blitz Battles, or create a true dream team by collecting player cards in Elite League. Featuring the twitch gameplay and ultra-responsive controls of the original game, combined with all-new single-player and cooperative game modes, NFL Blitz hits the virtual gridiron with blazing 60fps/60Hz gameplay.
