Hit the ice with NHLPA '93 from Electronic Arts. Many options make this one hot! One or two players can skate for bragging rights, or you can take part in the championships. All the top teams are prepared to give you a run for your money! The view is from an overhead perspective allowing an unparalleled view of the action! Score a goal and hear the crowd go wild! With NHLPA '93, who needs to sharpen skates?
This game does a much better job of blending the accuracies of the sport with a play mechanic that is easy to pick up and have fun with. It's a boosted-up version of their previous hockey effort, but new perspectives and more options make it a worthy investment that is addictive in its two-player mode.
EA knows sports! Although their previous game set new standards in excellence, this version rewrites what the best should be. Better sounds, faster and more controllable game play now correct what was lacking in the first game. The two player action is the best I have ever seen! Where does EA go from here?
EA does it again with the sequel to NHL! This game is more refined than NHL and offers more control and smoother game play. The graphics are touched up and the sounds are awesome. The crowd cheers you on or boos when cheap plays occur. Great 2-player action and a smarter computer opponent. Bring it on.
It would appear that EA has managed to improve their smash hit of the ice rink! The sounds are unbelievable (the echo of the puck hitting a wall is perfect), the instant replay also captures funny moments like a photographer taking a picture of a hockey player being beaned with the puck. Classic! Worthy!
