Blitz 2 gameplay videos

Blitz 2 gameplay videos

Midway's Blitz: The League II will hit the stores in USA next week, while Europe has to wait until October the 24th to get it. We got a copy of the game early, and it's quite the violent one too. It may look like a normal (American) football game at first glance, but this game has some serious bone-breaking stuff going on. Just in these videos I dislocate a shoulder, squash something in the body and shut down a brain. And CSI hasn't got anything on the level of detail of this, so take a look at the gameplay videos inside.

Wow! I've never liked this type of games, but the injury was way too cool :D It would be nice to implement these kind of damage modeling into Fight Night, or maybe FPS's

Ahaha that was badass, i might actually look into this one this time cuz back on the n64 this game was crazy and it looks like theyre at least trying to go back to more violence so...



YAY VIOLENCE!! ;D

Yeah something like the cinematice physical damage would be cool in any type of fighter really. Fight Night pretty much gets the job done without this type of display. I actually like to see the opponents face at the end of a round, but I really wish the damage was more visible during the fights. Sometimes the chararcter appeared more battered in between rounds than they did in the ring. It almost looked as if the boxers had a super healing factor, laugh.

Over the top "injury" sequence, they really went overboard with the description of a shoulder dislocation.

The gameplay looks REALLY tame compared to older blitz games, also whats up with the semi realistic player proportions?...

About the game

    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (7 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
