Mario Lemieux Hockey
by Ringler Studios
The latest in Sega's line of popular sports translations for the Genesis is hockey and the popular Mr. Lemeiu-ux is bringing it to you on the 16-Bitter! Pick from the hottest teams in the NHL to compete in a major stick slamming, slashing, and hooking test filled with some of the hottest graphics you'll ever see in a hockey title! This game combines close-ups shots of specific parts of play (like the face off and the frequent fights that are bound to break out) with a fast-action scrolling contest that features full teams of skaters going toe to toe.
Pick a fight and duke it out to see who goes back into the game and who gets to spend time in the penalty box. The fights are a great addition to the fast-paced hockey action!
The latest slam-fest, Mario Lemieux Ice hockey, is coming soon so you can hit the ice!
Cold steel cuts into the ice as blades flash with each powerful thrust. Players tear up the rink, the puck shooting ahead. The stickwork is staggering, the passing unbelievable. The defense hasn't got a prayer.
Ferocious speed and dynamic hockey action set Mario Lemieux Hockey far above the ranks of ordinary hockey games. This one or two-player cart has it all: closeups of all the totally realistic action, a full pro 16-team tournament season, body checks, 90-mph slap shots, and lots more.
A top-ranked sports game, Mario Lemieux Hockey gives you lots of choices and options. For example, you have the option to battle it out through a four-round tournament, or play an exhibition game, choosing your team and the opposing team.
You even control whether the play is strictly by the book or more lenient. You decide how strict the ref is going to be, and set the length of the periods, from a down-and-dirty five minutes on up to the regulation 20 minutes.
As you play, the 14-page Stat Book keeps running totals for both teams.
You don't even have to play a game. Choose Shootout mode, and you add an edge to both your shooting and goal tending skills while keeping the competition sizzling with the computer or a friend.
We highly recommend Mario Lemieux Hockey to all Segaphiles, especially you hockey jocks. Face off with this cart, and you'll agree it's the hottest thing on ice.
Try starting oft on the slower beginner level. You get a bigger range of hitting positions, and can get the feet of the play before taking off at full tilt.
Pass as much as you can, because the puck moves faster than you can.
