Blitz: The League demo

Pounding Xbox Live now.

Get those steroids in your face and pad-up, because a demo for Blitz: The League is now available to download from Xbox Live.

It's an American Football title from Midway that's completely over the top, not having to adhere to the realism of official NFL licensed games. Use your "unleash meter" to slow down time and pull-off impossible power plays to devastate your opponent, both on and offline.

Explore the violence both on the field and behind the scenes in the campaign mode, see what it really takes to make it in the world of cheerleaders and touch-downs.

The demo follows news that the game, which has sold more than one million units in the US, will be available in Europe on 23rd February. It's in high demand here apparently, and we're off to see why.
