EA has done yet another superior job in utilizing the latest technology in bringing us a game that looks so life-like, you will oftentimes forget that you are playing a game and not watching the actual sport.
In fact, it was my first NHL what I ever played. It was awesome in these days, I can still remember all of these features in game. I can pretty remember all parts of soundtrack. I still enjoy NHL 2001 in the moment.
Unchanged from last year, opposing teams don't know how to run a powerplay. You can literally pick up the puck in your own end, rush to centre ice and turn around and head back behind your net. Rinse, repeat, and two minutes later the powerplay is over none the worse for wear.
First NHL game I ever played, and it's still my favourite. The game made me fall in love with hockey. The PC version is the same as its PS2 counterpart. It does suffer from slow-down from time to time.
SummaryHigh-flyin', hard hittin', intense powerplay hockey is back with EA Sports' NHL 2001, bringing gamers out of the stands and onto the ice. Lace up the skates and play with or against all 30 National Hockey League teams, including the expansion Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild. [Electronic Arts]
