    I'm a huge hockey fan, so i don't mind the game. it does have a few flaws i think though. firstly, there is frequent slow-down when the crowd gets onto the screen or when players are all on the screen at once. second, the players look very little like their real-life couterparts. third, the gameplay is a bit boring since there's little to no strategy involved. fourth, the I'm a huge hockey fan, so i don't mind the game. it does have a few flaws i think though. firstly, there is frequent slow-down when the crowd gets onto the screen or when players are all on the screen at once. second, the players look very little like their real-life couterparts. third, the gameplay is a bit boring since there's little to no strategy involved. fourth, the graphics are pretty bad. not only do they look unimpressive, they also are glitchy. fifth, is that there are few settings or gameplay options (i've come to expect to be able to modify some settings to my liking after playing ea games). it's difficult to tell the difference between the fastest game setting and the slowest eventhough there's about 10 different settings. on the up side, the game delivers a fast paced reflex fest. i'd likely hate this game though if i wasn't from canada and a self proclaimed hockey fanatic.

  1. Fast, fun and furious in small doses, but it wasn't made for prolonged exposure.
  2. Hockey has never been more action packed, violent and fun than this unique and oh so Midway approach to the fastest game on earth.
  3. A good deal of dumb fun. Grab a few friends and a case of Labatt's and you've got yourself the perfect rental.
