    The gameplay and features are the slickest out there, and in terms of simulating the experience of hockey, NHL 2K2 delivers the most authentic representation I've seen yet.
  2. If you can get past some of the sloppy control and strong defensive qualities of the game (including a too-effective poke check), you'll find a game completely opposite all other arcade based titles on the market.
  3. A fast, fun, deep, and graphically impressive game and it’s been well worth the two year wait since Sega released the original.
  4. A great game of hockey... It may not have all the features that we would have liked, but it's certainly a lot of fun to play.
  5. In the good, but not great category, NHL 2K2's artificial intelligence provides moments of excellence, tempered with moments of sheer stupidity.
  6. It's all here, with looks that kill and gameplay to support it. [April 2002, p.63]
  7. The sound of skates on ice is particularly grating here, sounding more like nails on a blackboard than thin knives of steel dragging across a slab of frozen water.
