    The gameplay itself, while a bit more grounded than its lame console cousin, has too many AI issues.

    While the game controls nicely, the frame rate is bad, the gameplay is bland and boring; there’s simply no fun to be found in the title. Simply put, it’s a bad port of an already bad PS2 game.

    The 2nd instalment in the Gretzky NHL series improves on some of the shortcomings of its predecessor. The frame-rate and AI are improved. TheThe 2nd instalment in the Gretzky NHL series improves on some of the shortcomings of its predecessor. The frame-rate and AI are improved. The game introduces new modes for player to enjoy. 3 on 3 hockey is an NHL Hitz style mode with no offsides and big hits. The Wayne vs Wayne mode is an arcade style 5 on 5 hockey with simplified rules. In Wayne vs Wayne, the players collect something the game calls "the 99 Time". Throwing big hits, winning face-offs, one-timers, shots on goal and outplaying your opponent will add a set number of seconds on your clock. When you hit a certain number of seconds, you will be able to call Wayne Gretzky to play for your team, giving you a 6 on 5 power play. NHL's affiliate league, the American Hockey League is present in the game. Sadly the AHL teams aren't playable, still the full rosters are available, and the player may move the players from AHL to NHL and vice versa. The lack of the 'create a player' or create a team are a real bummer dough. Full Review »
