Summary: This is the worst hockey game ive ever played. Im a fan of hockey and this was an embarrasment. The framerate was flawed and the computer opponents can beat you with ease on the easiest setting. Of about 10 games i won 2 of them.This game had so much potential. It just messed up.
I thought they would have the technology to make these games better

Summary: I really put in a lot of time trying to get used to the way this game plays and I feel like I gave it a more than fair chance. Unfortunately, Gretzky NHL just turns out to be really dissapointing from a game play perspective. The controls are very poor. It's really hard to navigate your player exactly where you want to go, especially when there is a loose puck! I can't tell you how many times I've overskated a puck by a pixel.
Summary: I'd like to start off by saying I am a hockey fan. I have been since age 10, played for 5 years, and reffed for more. Especially with this past season being cancelled, I'm certainlly in need of my hockey fix, so I picked this game up. 989 forces you to use the analog button for skating. I'm not sure it's because of this, or because of the engine, but whatever it is, the player controls are sloppy.
Summary: Gretzky NHL, made by 989 sports, the worst of all sports games makers, is a sad excuse 4 an NHL game. If you are used to the EA or ESPN games then you'll just love the button set-up(sarcasm). Most of the buttons r the same but instead of square being to shoot, you're stuck with square being to check and deke. Circle is now the button for shooting and there is no option because you're not allowed to change the controller setup.
Summary: INTRO:Even when i play it the first time it wasn`t great,and that was back when it was the only hockey PSP game too.The graphics are poor,there aren`t many modes and there is nothing new at all.The graphics are really hurting this game badly and it doesn`t look at all like the prewiew disc there aren`t many good points about this game...
