It's always seemed that I'm doomed to failure in any game which takes its cues from a competitive sport, but that's not kept me from trying time and again over the years. And in that time I've found that pure simulation is the absolute enemy of fun when it comes to me, which is why I'm looking forward to downloading the new version of NFL Blitz. And, as of today, I can.
The arcade-style take on Grid Iron is currently available for $14.99 on PlayStation Network or from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1200 MSP. We'll be having a review from our own Samit Sarkar just as soon as he's managed to fully plumb its depths. And a little later tonight we'll see Max Scoville and Tara Long take their first crack at playing NFL Blitz (I hear comedy ensued), so stay tuned to Destructoid for that.
