Excerpt: Following in the footsteps of Mutant League Hockey (or something like that), EA has released Rock the Rink. A hockey title that plays in the fashion of NFL Blitz and NBA Jam, NHL Rock the Rink is EA's no rules sports title and also the answer to midways NFL Blitz series. NHL is in the title, the game doesn't strictly use fictional teams, so you are getting a bit of realism here.
Conclusion: Electronic Arts has brought the NHL into a wacky new world, and I think you'll like what you see. Rock the Rink is arcade action at its finest. With incredibly fast action, this game gives your fingers a workout. From the moment the puck is dropped to the final whistle, Rock the Rink's gameplay and music reel you in. The NHL Challenge moment is just what it implies, a challenge.
