Olympic Hockey Nagano '98

Cheap, cynical cash-in on an event that generates only total indifference in the UK. The proper Gretzky games are much better.
Wintery action from the Land of the Constantly Extinguishing Olympic Torch. Konami's attempt to simulate the Olympiad is a brave effort, but let down by a couple of sub-par events. The variety on sports on offer (from downhill skiing to - yes! - curling, which is more fun than it sounds) does help out, and it's a hell of a lot more realistic than the 'robots on ice' PlayStation version!
