Summary: This game has been modified. Hits and fights are less intense, gameplay is slower than nhl hitz 2002. You would have much more fun playing nhl hitz 2002. I was such a fan that i bought this one to see how it turned out. I guess i know now the reason they have stopped making these nhl hitz games. Nhl hitz 2002 is a lot of fun. Pick that up if you want an arcade fun hockey sim.
