    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.
  3. An absolute must have for any serious hockey fanatic.
  4. Is it perfect? No. But it's pretty damn close.
  5. EA Sports delivers its most solid hockey game yet -- NHL 2001 could be the best sports game released this year.
  6. With any high-speed sports game, the real bonus is in the game play and NHL 2001 oozes it.
  7. Though it may not contain enough hardcore realism for hockey purists, it definitely offers some options that cater to them.
