  • Summary: Extreme, arcade-style 3-on-3 hockey action featuring "on fire" pucks, players, and teams, "big" player models, fantasy stadiums, along with exhibition, championship, and franchise modes.

  1. With a combination of stunning graphics, high-octane action and sweet multiplayer gameplay, NHL Hitz 20-02 comes off as one of those rare titles most PS2 owners will not want to miss.

    I can’t tell you how much fun it is to check your best friend over the boards and into the stands. That alone is worth the price of admission for me.
  3. The thing that I enjoy most about this arcade style hockey is the big hits. You can actually practice the many skills you will need in this game, including driving your opponent through the glass.
  4. The finest accomplishment is the stirring fighting system. [Dec 2001, p.170]
  5. The sound is one place where the game sort of falls back a bit.
  6. A good deal of dumb fun. Grab a few friends and a case of Labatt's and you've got yourself the perfect rental.

    Despite a solid concept behind it, NHL Hitz 2002 has neither the gameplay nor the presentation level to deliver.
