Hit the ice combines fast, action packed hockey with the crazy antics of brawling. You select a team from a list of wacky competitiors and strap on your skates for some hard hitting action. Fists will be flyin' when you step onto the ice and bodies will be flying as well for that matter! Beating on the opposition is just as important as scoring goals in this messy affair . A variety of moves can be performed, such as slapshots, passes, checks, super shots and checks, plus many more. All of the action takes place in a jam packed arena that is craving some bone crunching hits! All the animations and highlights can be seen on the scoreboard at center ice as well. Get ready to score some goals and throw some punches!

Game Reviews

"I went to a fight, and a hockey game broke out!" After playing Hit the Ice, you may feel the same way! Pick your fighter, err I mean player, from a variety of knuckleheads too unethical to make it into the big leagues. Each player has his own set of dirty moves which can be utilized during the course of the game. The crowd even gets in on the action, throwing their garbage onto the ice!

People say:

5.0

This might sound cold, but Hit the Ice is nothing more than an average sports title for the Turbo. There was alot lost in the translation from the coin-op. The graphics are good, but the game play suffers due to oversized characters and imprecise control. The Turbo needs to concentrate on features other than the Turbo Tap.

8.0

The arcade game featured some of the fastest action around and once the player gets the hang out of the controls and gets good at the different passes, the game really gets intense. The fights are great and add to the enjoyment, but, like most Turbo sports games, plug in the Turbo Tap, get three friends and have a ball!

7.0

This is your typical hockey game .and really doesn't do much of anything different to compliment the sport. There are fights of course and plenty of rough plays. I don't like the side scrolling view and the game play is sloppy. The graphics are cool, but the players are big and clumsy. A slightly above average sports title.

7.0

This is the one of the best sports games for the Turbo! With highly animated athletes and dynamic detail, Hit the Ice really brings the hockey experience you want! The free-for-all brawls are great, with even the crowd joining in! Besides the utter bludgeoning of your opponents, the game play is fairly smooth.
