    The mark of any good hockey game, for me, has been whether or not my palms sweat when I am playing. This one passes my very non-scientific test with flying colors.
  2. While it's not the most beautiful hockey video game, NHL 2001 comes through where it counts - the gameplay.
  3. 100
    NHL 2001 takes this year's PlayStation Championship (against Sony's "FaceOff"), but it was a tight seven game showdown.
  4. This game is killer to say the least, and a must buy for hockey fans.
  5. This may be the best single player experience (EA has) come up with yet.
  6. The frame rate is pretty bad and arenas are generic, but player models look detailed, at least.
  7. A fast and fun hockey game that gives you all the options, modes and action you could want from a hockey game.
  8. By combining excellent graphics, strong gameplay, superlative control, and outstanding features, it's a fitting end to an excellent era in console hockey.
  9. Plays too fast to be considered a serious sim.
  10. While NHL 2001 offers little in the way of new features to the series, it nonetheless delivers the most entertaining hockey game for the PSX this year.
