Summary: 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.
Summary: He used to play the PC version, it took him a while to figure out how to work it because he was expecting it to be more similar but the disc itself worked great and he got some fun out of it, so it was worth purchasing.
Summary: I'm sorry, but this game was NOT that good, even for its time. I ran into frequent glitches, and the game got seriously boring after only a few hours of playtime. Not one of the better PS2 titles.
Summary: Obviously this game is very old, especially by PS2 standards. However it is the one hockey game I come back to time after time. Why? You can TWEAK this game to create one of the most fast paces, high energy, fun hockey experiences ever. Simply adjusting the play speed, hard hits, the speed of the puck, etc to the maximum levels, you will see what I mean. I have been playing Playstation hockey since Faceoff 98 and all the way up to this year.
Summary: This game is great on one or two player mode, but I prefer playing two player all day with my dad because I kick his butt easily but he wins once in a blue moon. The bottom line is this game will give you hours of fun, so I recommend this game.
Summary: I thought this was the best hockey playwise nhl.i havent played 2002,but play wise it is much more like the real nhl! especially the saves the goalies make,they literally steal the game or leave it tied at times! the defense is much more like real nhl,but 03',and 04' did have better graphics thats why i give it 4 stars! i highly recommend it!
Summary: Get this for only the used price. It was a great start of Hockey for the PS2 system. Any part of the game play can be updated and made to make the game easier to play. Great graphics and better game play then it's counter part for the PS1.
Summary: I've had my PS2 for over a year now, and NHL 2001 was the game that I bought when I got the system. After adding substantially to my PS2 game library, I find myself always going back to NHL 2001. The graphics are great, the color commentary is good (it's downright awful in NHL 2002), and the game play is phenomenal.
Summary: I have to say, I really dig this game. The graphics aren't perfect, but they are pretty good and most of the hockey players look like their real life counterparts. The game is rather balanced and it's way fun to check someone into the glass and steal the puck. You can practically feel the exhiliration when you score a goal or the disappointment and anger when a goal is scored on you. The replay of goals is really tasty, let's you have to feeling of really being there.
