Excerpt: Normally, I try not to focus on what is missing in a title but, instead, focus on its strong points. However, what NHL FaceOff 2003 doesn’t have is one of the main reasons it fails.

Excerpt: If you're like me, you live up in Wisconsin, where it's cold, which means only one thing: hockey. But chances are you're not like me.
