    Add chainsaws to this game and call it mutant league returns. First time i ever preordered a game and the last time as well. They've been making NHL since the days of sega. How can they get it soooo wrong?

  1. People who are looking for a fast sports game can't go wrong with this, but those wanting to upgrade might want to rent it first to see if it's worth their hard earned pennies.
  2. This is EA’s take on NHL action as it’s always been, rejigged with improved animations and new moves so it’s inevitably the best version yet. [Nov 2004, p.119]
  3. For the second year running, "NHL" best encapsulates the play and and authenticity of the sport. [Sept 2004, p.103]
