  1. An outstanding title that can do it all.
  2. One of the finest efforts yet from Sony. This is truly a surprise in this day of next generation consoles.
  3. 90
    It shows a lot more polish and precision than previous versions, and will give you hours of hard checking NHL and international team competition.
  4. Easily the smoothest PS one hockey experience and it was the first to truly tackle realistic puck physics like deflections and tip-ins. [Nov 2001, p.50]
  5. It is fun. I looked forward to each game I played and enjoyed every minute of it.
  6. The all new draft and practice modes allow the armchair coach and manager in all of us to experience the pressure of running an NHL hockey team.
  7. It's the gameplay, though, where NHL Faceoff comes through, even outdoing EA's series in some respects.
  8. If you're looking for arcade hockey or you're into simulation games, FaceOff 2001 delivers both packages fairly well with all sorts of customizable options to tweak the game to your liking.
  9. I was extremely disappointed in the lack of real improvements to the newest Faceoff game, as I almost always am.
  10. If you're looking for a strong upgrade to NHL FaceOff 2000, you won't find it here.
  11. You'd be better off with Electronic Arts' "NHL 2001."
