    I was hyped about this release at the time, but it was very disappointing. The goalie AI is a big problem - it's predictable.

    Great graphics and gameplay. It's not to easy to score yet it's not that hard to score. But Turning A breakaway into a movie in the middle of a game is not the smartest thing I've ever seen anyone do.

  1. The framerate is incredibly smooth. [Dec 2001, p.109]
  2. The key to the game is the balance of arcade and sim elements of the gameplay. The game is flat out fun to play, which is what counts the most.
  3. The frame rate has also been improved upon over NHL 2002 on the PS2, and runs as smooth as Michael Jordan’s newly shaved head.
