With critical success of NBA Jam On Fire Edition, I can't wait to see what EA can do with the resurrection of NFL Blitz.

1/3/12 BUMP: BUMP for the release date.

Game is coming in North America tomorrow, January 4th. I'm going to download the LIVE Arcade version when it comes out.

First Impressions of EA's Blitz
-----

Pros
-----
* Faithful to Midway's arcade versions of Blitz.  Not a perfect replica, but close.
* Lots of unlockables
* Cheats can still be provided pre-game
* Great sound and fluid framerate

Cons
-----
* Can't do late hits (*sob*)
* Slower gameplay (because you can't snap immediately after selecting a play)
* 2 GB download might cause issues to lesser connections
* I haven't tested this online, though I heard about some weird lag in the PSN version

I'm going to try Elite League some time later for some impressions on this, but I'm going to give this a 4 out of 5 so far. It doesn't deserve a 5 because it didn't exactly replicate the old Blitz experience, but fans of the franchise will still be happy with EA bringing it back after Midway closing the doors.

More updates: IGN got their hands on Blitz, giving it an 8.5 out of 10. So far, this is the only review from a major company at this time.



1/5/12 BUMP: Bad news for European players - it's North America-only.

I now have zero interest in this game.
