    EA has done yet another superior job in utilizing the latest technology in bringing us a game that looks so life-like, you will oftentimes forget that you are playing a game and not watching the actual sport.

    Excellent controls, AI, and graphics make this hockey game a must have.
  3. An absolute must have for any serious hockey fanatic.
  4. It offers impressive (albeit repetitive) audio, superb graphics and animation to go along with exciting gameplay and fans of both arcade and simulation-style sports games should be able to find some aspect to enjoy.
  5. It's games like this that make the industry.
  6. It has a few problems that keep it from being the perfect hockey game, but they're easily overlooked in light of the game's many impressive qualities.
  7. Shatters the shackles of mediocrity and stands atop the PC hockey hill as the undisputed king of the genre.
