Jeff Paramchuk is an idiot and has never played the game.

Blitz the League 2 is a very violent game and should not be played if you are under age. However, this type of game does appeal to the teenage group and young adult group that like those violent games like Modern Warfare 3 and Skyrim. Blitz 2 puts more violence in an already violent sport, but it is very entertaining for that certain age group. Whether you buy this game for your child is up to you, but make sure if you do that he is the appropriate age for the game.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

The fact that this game emphasizes excess in all aspects does nothing to enhance the gameplay, rather, it makes it become even more tedious and painful to play. Seeing a bone shatter once or twice is somewhat interesting, but forcing you to see it multiple times within a game and then having to perform the same mini-game to attempt and heal the player, becomes boring very quickly. Rather than emphasize actually football gameplay, Blitz 2 unfortunately has put the violent aspect as the foreground in the game. This combined with the buggy gameplay really take the enjoyment out of the title.
