  1. The fact that NHL Hitz is so easy to pick up and then so playable once you're hooked is the thing that makes the game a total success in our book – there are so few sports games around these days that manage to do the job so well.

    Might not be real NHL hockey, but it might be all the hockey you really need.
  3. An incredibly fast paced sports game with the intention of causing as many broken bones as possible. A great laugh on your own but with 2-3 friends it becomes an absolute hoot!
  4. Looking for the mot realistic hockey game ever? Look elsewhere. NHL Hitz is about adrenaline and ass-whuppin' - in that order.
  5. If your looking for a good ole fashioned arcade, hockey check fest, or an alternative multiplayer game to Super Smash Brothers Melee then look no further – NHL Hitz is here.
  6. 78
    Like the other games in their series, Hitz is easy to pick up, fun to play, and not at all representative of the sport that it's based on.
  7. 60
    The game will be exciting right up until you realize that the game itself is controlling how close the games will be, and your skill seems to have no bearing on the outcome in the long run unless you get a lucky shot at the end.

    Well done graphics with fast-paced, loose teeth hockey action. The franchise mode where I made an entire custom team and took them on the Well done graphics with fast-paced, loose teeth hockey action. The franchise mode where I made an entire custom team and took them on the road was my choice for playing through all the teams, and I could do so with 2 friends against the cpu's. 4 player is a blast with easy controls, nice one-timers, and fist fights to knock out your friends players.
