  1. This is a terrific blend of arcade-style gaming (as in with the players steaming and bursting into flame) and straight-ahead sports simulation.

    If you've got a hankering for some good multiplayer fun or a mindless testosterone tirade, Hitz is your hook-up. [Jan 2002, p.87]
  3. Single-player control is frustrating at times, and strategy isn't as important as the brute force method because of this. Nevertheless, this game gets a boost from attention to graphic detail and audio.

    Great-looking and fantastically fun. [Jan 2002, p.31]
  5. With better graphical flare than many of today's simulation and arcade sports titles, Hitz not only boasts more arcade action but also dishes it on fun platters one after another.
  6. It looks better than the PS2 version, and it plays a little more solidly.
  7. Xbox Nation Magazine

    Despite the much-hated "catch up" feature, Hitz kept us glued. Better than "Blitz" we say. [Jan 2002, p.88]

    It's NHL Blitz. This game resembles NHL rock the Rink in nearly every way except in this game the shots are realistic.

    I love this game and it's so fun. It's way better than NHL 2002. It doesn't really get easy.

    Hey, this game is too easy to win against computer, and the only competition you can get is a friend or family member.
