Review: Mutant Football League: Dynasty Edition

November 18, 2018 1 min read

When NFL Blitz first hit the scene some 20 years ago, my young mind was blown away by the sheer over-the-top violence the game featured. Sure, this was a time when the NFL itself embraced this culture of hard-hitting brutality, but the game really just took the ball and ran with it. It was madness. It kept just enough of the rules of football and turned them upside down to make the game familiar but zany. In short, it was a controlled form of chaos that distilled the spirit of the sport into an arcadey and vicious package.

Mutant Football League is a successor in spirit if not name. The violence and mayhem remain with some extra bells and whistles thrown in to make the package a bit more robust, but something ultimately just feels missing.
