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 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.
Summary: This is a new type of racing game. It took me a while to get uesed to it, but eventually it became exciting to go from team to team. The main point of the game is to race around the streets of tokyo, and challenging other race teams to races. When u win, u get a certain amount of money and u can go back to the garage and upgrade your car. Eventually more parts of Tokyo will open up to be raced apon. This is a long game for those u you who do not play 24 hours.
Summary: Right after I bought my Playstation 2, I bought NHL 2001. This is a really good game with a few problems. There is every team in the NHL and teams from other countries. The graphics are really good, controlls are good, but loading time is terrible. It takes longer than most Playstation games take to load. They should have put this on a DVD.
Summary: Nhl is an action packed game i played it at my freinds house the AI is pretty good you can fight (i think x and square ) if you win the fight blood shows teeth get knocked out any you can hurt them one thing that is not good is that some things are fake like i made a couple of half court shots and one full court shot and i made them but if you like to win on rookie mode you can kill them like shut outs and high score games I would use the devels they are very good.
Summary: NHL '98 was the first sports game I ever bought. I had never been interested in sports games before, but the speed and brutal checking had me hooked. Me and my friends would play '98 for hours! Then NHL 99 came out - what a dud! What a disappointment! Enter NHL 2001. The graphics are great and the commentary by Clement and Thorne sounds just like they do when I am watching an Avs game.
Summary: EA Sports certainly put all their attention to this years hockey games to the Playstation2. Their NHL 2001 for the Psx1 was terrible and nothing new when compared to last years title. However, on the Psx2, things are much different and the disapointment level is much less. To start with, this game looks amazing.
Summary: Although I am not a huge fan of hockey, or follow the sport in any manner, NHL 2001 is a fantastic game. The numerous options, realistic play and camera angles are amazing. It is better than its original PS1 version because the gameplay is "physics-based" and the players do not move as fast. The game can get tiring to play continuous, unless you use the analog joystick found on the PS2 controllers.
