  1. You’ll have a constant smile on your face as well as enjoying an addictive and satisfying game of hockey. Excellent.
  2. A solid realistic arcade experience that has surpassed any of the other sports titles Midway touches.
  3. It’s accessible, it’s fun, the graphics and sound are well done, has the crowd is the best out there, and has enough options and stats to mollify even the most rabid fan of “real” hockey.
  4. I'll be happy to say that this is the best hockey game on the PS2. [Nov 2002, p.188]
  5. It may not be an accurate portrayal of NHL, but it blows away EA's game with little effort. [Nov 2002, p.127]
  6. The irreverent nature of the game really lends itself to multi-player action.

    I just picked this up and I can't believe how much Midway has improved the game since last year. There's so much new content I'm practically overwhelmed. Full Review »
