Summary: This is the best Hockey game available in the market today. If you are a big hockey fan, you'll love this game. For the rest of the people who aren't into hockey, skip this game. I'm no sports fan so my opinion may be biased. But I do like Madden for the Playstation 2 and still don't like football in general. NHL Hockey was extremely easy if you use a good team. Even in the hardest difficulty levels, it's of no challenge.
Summary: i would wait and see what faceoff is like. graphically, nhl 2001 is great, but the pregame and in-game "puff" pieces get tired after a while. the gameplay is choppy due to slowdown, which occurs when there are several players in the same end of the ice. also, its tough to find a good camera angle, they are either too close, which makes it diffiuclt to set up 1 timers or its too far away, which makes the guys look like midgets.
Summary: Wow, the players even resemble their real-life counterparts! Gameplay is very realistic, and I haven't even mastered the controls yet. The fighting occurs a little too easily for my taste though. This is a top-notch rendition and a must-have for any real hockey fan.
Summary: The game starts off good, you can really have some fun with blinding graphics and quick and easy to learn controls. But once you have progressed into the game a bit, you start to notice that the game is really governed by players stats not your skills, the only way to win is by using the best team to dominate. It just seems too empty. But it's still a darn good laugh.
Summary: This is the first ice hockey game I have bought in ages, and my first impressions were very good. The game is easy to get into, you can choose Season Mode, Playoffs, Tournament etc. The graphics are probably the best feature of the game, noticeably better than any of the previous instalments. This game is better as a 2 player, although single player mode is still very good. It has a high lastability factor, I cannot stop playing the Season mode. However, now the faults.
Summary: So eine Gemeinheit! Da bringt EA mal wieder ein fantastisches Spiel heraus, und die blöden Ruckler versauen einem den grossen Teil des Spasses. Zunächst einmal ist "NHL 2001" wirklich ein tolles Spiel für die PS2. Besonders gegen einen menschlichen Mitspieler macht das Ding echt süchtig. Eine durchzockte Nacht ist da keine Seltenheit. Die Steuerung ist einfach zu erlernen, komplex genug und bietet keine Kritikpunkte. Die Grafik ist rein optisch ein echter Hochgenuss.
Excerpt: Sempre EA, sempre sport! La grafica è croce e delizia di questo gioco di hockey su ghiaccio. I modelli poligonali degli atleti sono i più belli e realistici mai visti in un qualsiasi titolo sportivo. Le texture sono ottime, e le espressioni del viso la ...
