  1. It offered fair and fun gameplay and easy controls that were simple to maneuver...For a non-sports game fan, I was delighted to play a sports game and like it.

It's the only video game that my dad played with us, and so I guess that made it special for me. After playing it a lot though, it gets really easy to score 20+ goals per game if you know some AI quirks. Playing vs another person is sweet, and more strategic then you'd think Full Review »

    This game is fun, but unrealistic, which can be good however it is stupid when a 1 timer always goes in.

The faces are all fantastic, and truly look like their real life counterparts. The gameplay has been tweaked and improved upn as well. Hits in particular are more dramatic and crushing than before. I do have a big complaint though. There's noticable slowdown frequently!! When too much action is happening the framerate hits the floor. It doesn't hugely effect the play, but it's annoying for sure. Hitz is worth owning for hockey fans. It's arcade style fun, and I think better than EA's NHL 2003 overall. Full Review »
