Gretzky NHL

Game Over Online
24 May 2015
  • Excerpt: If you followed the suggestions from gaming companies, you might think that the sport of hockey was once a black hole, full of brutish, stick wielding thugs. Fights and hard body checks were the norm, and any grace associated with the sport was farcical at best.

Gretzky NHL

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: The video that welcomes the player when they first boot up Gretzky NHL is as good as any DVD. Gretzky has had a long, and successful career in the icy sport of hockey. 989 Studios (which has since been swallowed by Sony) has had to play catch up on Electronic Arts, and Sega in most sports games.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: As with 989’s other PSP launch game, NBA , it is very easy to be initially wowed by Gretzky NHL ’s graphics. And, for the most part, it’s a great looking game.

  • Excerpt: I don't know much about hockey, but I do know enough to realize that unresponsive controls, busted A.I., loose puck handling, and jumpy graphics are the kinds of things that no one wants to see in an officially licensed product.

  • Excerpt: While the real NHL remains in a holding pattern, the virtual NHL continues to drop the puck on consoles everywhere. Sony's new PSP has shown a strong commitment to sports gaming in its launch lineup, and

  • Conclusion: I am actually a big fan of hockey videogames in fact I think they may one of the most fun sports games to play in videogame form. With that being said, Gretzky NHL does not provide the same sort of hockey experience that we have become used to in today’s day and age.

  • Conclusion: An average FPS which tries to win back it’s following with lame PR stunts and back-to-basics gameplay. Occasionally it succeeds but most of the time it falls short of the mark with instances of unadulterated tedium.
