Summary: This game has gotten a bum rap over the years. The controls are not complicated and you don't have a franchise mode but some of the newer games left that option out. One season and you get to play with the real rules before they were sissified and watered down with the last change where some idiots...
Summary: ...when i first played it, i thought it was going to be the worst out of the three games for ps2 so far (others are nhl 2001 and nhl faceoff 2001) but as i got used to it, i realized its the best hockey game on the market.
Summary: When was the last time you couldn't deak a goalie out? When was the last time that you couldn't fake a shot? When was the last time you played a realistic game? Up untill now, it's all been in the hands of EA. I'm a high school hockey player, and i own all three games.
Summary: STAY AWAY FROM THIS. THE ONLY HOCKEY GAME THAT EXIST FOR ME IS EA NHL 2001. IT HAS EVERYTHING THAT ESPN DOES NOT HAVE,GRAPHICS,CONTROLS,GREAT GAME PLAY.IF YOU EVER PLAYED EA'S NHL 2001 THEN YOU HAVE PLAYED THE BEST.ESPN'S IS THE WORST.DON'T BOTHER WITH IT.
Summary: Amazing, a video hockey game where you can actually affectively set up plays! Most hockey game franchises, like EA's NHL series, though very great in themselves, have an issue....speed. And too much of it at times.
Summary: If you have played NHL 2001 on Playstation, or FaceOff, or the PowerPlay series on N64, you will notice that most console hockey games take a very kinetic, chaotic, speed-ridden approach to the game.
Summary: I play hockey and have been playing for the past 9 years so i think I would know what a good game is and which game [stinks]. I go for the realistic though challeging hockey game which is exactly what this game includes.
Summary: I love hockey and have owned every EA hockey game available all with satisfaction. Yes this game is more like real life than others, but if i wanted real life i would strap on my pads and go play. The players are slow and hard to move, and the button combo's are difficult to learn.
Summary: This game is not good. I agree with the earlier reviews which say that when they first started playing they thought this was one of the worst games they played. Unfortunately for me, I didn't think that game was any better after I played it a while. I really wish that it was...
