    There's a lot of decent ideas and implementations in this kids' based hockey title...it just needs to be fleshed out in a true hockey experience for the pros.
  2. This is a game that does not translate well to the tiny screen of the GBA, simply because shortcuts had to be made graphically that took out a big reason to play the Backyard titles – personality.
  3. The overhead view lets you see clearly and control the action easily, but it doesn't give you a great look at the characters. [Nov 2003, p.152]
