Huge Blitz fan, I own all the blitz games for N64 and have gotten to know the subtle differences through the years.
Blitz 2000 for me was the best installment.
The original game (99) was only 2 player and Blitz 2000 had 4 player which was key. Also the sprinting is slower in 2000 than 2001 or special edition. The slower movement meant your QB could run to the outside for about 10 yards in 2000. In 2001 you could run 25 yards easy each play with the QB. 2000 made you get creative to get first downs, making it a balanced game between running some and passing the rest. You could run the whole time in 2001-- it got silly.
MOST IMPORTANTLY THOUGHT, BLITZ 2000 WAS THE ONLY GAME ONSIDE KICK WORKED THE WHOLE GAME. in 2001 onside kicks didn't work in the second half-- it was a weird glitch that killed the game. In great games that were close and you don't have the onside kick option late in the 4th it would suck that reason alone would make me go back to 2000.
I have been on the NFLBlitzfans website-- but its all pages about hacking and way to complicated for me.
All I'm looking for is the ROM that I can play on SixtyForce on my mac. A downloadable link-- Is it out there?
Any help at all would be huge! --
