Summary: I feel really bad for the people who dished out a good amount of money for this game. Why does Nintendo continue to allow this trash to saturate the market for their console? Forty+ dollars is bad but I'd say it's not even worth the bandwidth or blank disc to download and burn it illegally.
Summary: There are many cool Wii games out there with excellent controls and re-playability (ie. Mario and Sonic Olympics); this game is far from one of them. I was excited to try this game out as the pictures reminded me of Ice Hockey for NES. It's nothing like it, fine, but then there is nothing right about this game. Graphics: mediocre Audio: poor Gameplay: poor Controls: broke The PC is pretty dumb, yet they know how to exploit the game.
Summary: This is a pretty fun game once you get the controls down. If you are looking for something similar to the EA Games series, you will be disappointed. This is a 3 on 3 hockey game with no rules (offsides, two-line pass, etc.) so if you are looking for a fun little game (includes exhibition and tournament modes), this is it.
Summary: I'll take it one step further than the other reviewer - I would rather go out and play hockey bare foot in the snow than try and play this lame game again! Huge frustration for both my 8 year-old hockey player son and I. Only buy this game if you feel the need for self-abuse! (In fact, a sadly learned lesson of buying video games for the Wii, is only buy them after reading lots of reviews, because many of them stink!
Summary: I'd rather dig out my old original Nintendo and play the very first Nintendo game Ice Hockey. It's far superior to this one. It was mine and my kids first entry to the kidz sports game, I certainly hope others are better although this one is so bad I'll likely never find out.
Summary: got this game for my 6 year old who is a HUGE hockey fan. It requires the Nunchuk. There are just too many directions and ways to use the controllers. It was confusing for me and my son just kept playing and losing everytime. I guess with some practice it will be cute but he is ready to trade it for a different game...
