Kurt Warner's Arena Football Unleashed differs from other American football video games due to its usage of the arena football system. A few rule changes include that there are half as many players on the field, field goals go back into play if they miss the goalposts, and there's no such thing as punting.[3] The game is compared to NFL Blitz 2000 for its violence, and one reviewer even noted that "The post-play violence has been pumped up to the level that Blitz had before the NFL forced Midway to tone it down."[3]

Kurt Warner's Arena Football Unleashed received mostly poor reviews, portraying it as being a weaker version of NFL Blitz 2000. GameSpot criticized the game and gave it a low score. "It's a scaled-down version of Blitz 2000 with a few changes, but these changes don't really enhance the game in any way."[3] IGN wrote, "... the actual game engine seems more like a poor man's Blitz."
