Doug Abbott (dwa)  "Finally, A Hockey Game I Can Sit Down And Be Completely Submerged With!

With Flashy Graphics And Superb Gameplay, This Has To Be One Of The Best, If Not The Best Hockey Game Out There.

The Player Models/skins And Arenas Were Done Very Close To Their Real Life Counterparts. The Only Complaint Is That The Crowd Seemed Thrown In At The Last Minute, But Thats Just A Minor Problem. Overall The Graphics Are Up To Date With Todays Standards.

Gameplay Wise Is Where The Game Really Shines. There Are Plenty Of Options To Customize Your Personal Style Of Play, Whether That Be Arcadish Or A Simulation. In Game, The Action Is Fast Flowing And Full Of Big Hits, Slapshots, And One-timers.

One Small Complaint About The Game Is The Computer A.i. It Seems To Go On Insane Shooting Sprees... For Instance, I Was In The Lead 5-2, Third Period. Then Out Of Knowwhere The Computer Scored 4 Goals In About 5 Minutes! It's A Little Frustrating, But Bearable :)

Overall I Would Recommend This Game To Anyone Who Loves A Good Solid Sports Game. Bring Over Some Buddies, And Your In For An All Nighter!"

Les  "This A Great Game! I Have Been Playing These Hockey Games For Over 10 Years! And This Is By Far The Ultimate Game Ever. The Only Thing I Get P*ssed About Is When You Try To Make The Outlet Pass Out Of Your Zone It Always Goes Up The Middle!! No Pass Ever Makes It Up The Middle!"

Nothing spectacular, but still functional
Quality visuals that clearly show the power of this machine

This game has graphics that were never thought possible on this console

Makes little use of the CD capacity and audio hardware
Functional sounds that compliment the on-screen action

No fun to play, control is bad, gameplay lacks ideas
Offers moderate enjoyment but lacks a reason to play regularly
Quality title that has all the features you would expect
Top-notch title with nearly flawless gameplay
Little room for improvement and the best game of its type
Introduces new gameplay aspects not thought possible for this console

Wouldn't even buy for your worst enemy

Recommended purchase which should offer a weeks enjoyment
Has the potential to still be played regularly weeks from now
This will remain a popular game in your collection for months
You will enjoy playing this game occasionally even years from now
