Edited by Zeid Nasser Blitz: The League ? Don't call this football, because it's all about going up the middle with violent, eight-on-eight, bad sportsmanship. Even its main characters, Bill Romanowski and Lawrence Taylor, are the antithesis of the NFL's football ideals. There's little about the on-the-field antics that impress, but if there's one thing this franchise does well it's to make your adrenaline levels surge.With workmanlike efficiency, Blitz on XBox 360 pounds out the brutal gameplay with bone-cracking personal fouls and tackles. The graphics and animations aren't impressive, though, and the colors are dull. But, there are some hilarious celebrations after touchdowns. The game is quirky and bizarre. If you like this kind of untraditional sport gae, check it out.Marvel: Ultimate Alliance ? This game comes from the same group responsible for X-Men Legends and its sequel.First, pick four super friends from the side of justice, and join them on their mostly linear adventures. Perfect powers, gather collectible gear, and vanquish arch enemies. Dispatch enough evil filth, and each hero unlocks alternate costumes with upgradeable powers.There are over 140 different characters, but only twenty of them are playable, and some require unlocking. Though the core experience may be familiar, it is far from stale. The boss battles are head and shoulders above anything you've seen in the past as well. The roster of villains changes with such frequency that you never get a chance to get sick of them.The controls are simple enough. This is a great RPG and fans of the superhero genre will love it.GAME Zone
