  1. I truly love this game. It has everything a hockey fan could want. From the improved animations to the great Franchise mode to the great Pick Up and Play mode, NHL Hitz Pro is a necessary purchase. [Oct 2003, p.84]
  2. Obviously there’s enough here to keep your attention span up to snuff and every single mode available is a lot of fun.
  3. If you played and liked any of the previous NHL Hitz games, then Hitz Pro is definitely a game to get.
  4. The fact of the matter is that the NHL Hitz series was fun to play from day one, and just because there are four more players on the ice for NHL Hitz Pro doesn't change that one bit.
  5. The new moves are great; fighting is tolerable; and being able to knock down the goalie is a blast. However, the speed is greatly decreased. [Oct 2003, p.131]
  6. Most hockey games serve up similarly snazzy visuals, tight control, and expansive options, but none of 'em focus on purely wild-and-fun gameplay like this. [Oct 2003, p.136]
  7. Although the fighting controls are complicated, the rest of the controls are simple and intuitive. [Nov 2003, p.151]
