  1. The enjoyment NHL Hitz 2002 deteriorates rather quickly due to its negligible computer AI and simplistic gameplay, but if you're looking for some quick-hit fun from your hockey games, it's an excellent choice.
  2. Hardcore hockey fans should skate wide of this release, but most will enjoy this sleeper hit for what it is: a solid, fun game of hockey that strips out rules and penalties for a more action-packed experience.

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

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

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