NHL All-Star Hockey 95
I went to a hockey game and a fight broke out. This game has a Fighting Mode that can be turned on or off. It's about time somebody took a stand, even if it's toe to toe. Purists of the NHL will find NHL All-Star Hockey a pleasant trip down memory lane: You don't get a fine for going toe-to-toe with another player.
All of the NHL team logos, complete with up-to-date rosters, are included in the game.
A Scouting Report begins each game showing you how your team compares to the opposition. Your team's report is based on coaching, conditioning, skating, passing, shooting and under-pressure categories.
The game play is fast, and it plays much like the real game. The fundamentals of the game are intact and are there for you to master: skating, passing, shooting and scoring is the name of the game.
The puck moves realistically, and the player animations are larger than average. Laying the body on the members of the opposing team is the name of the game. A good defense makes for a good offense.
Don't be afraid to take the man, or you'll get scored on quickly and often in this one. You can block shots, intercept a pass or knock one of the members of the opposing team for a loop.
An overhead view on faceoffs gives you a fair advantage and a clear view when the referee is about to drop the puck. You can also choose from an exhibition game, a full season, new playoffs or a new play-off/best of seven series.
You can also turn penalties or line changes on or off. Another unique feature of the game allows you to have the computer automatically change lines for you.
You can also control the goalie yourself or have a computerized netminder tend goal for you. Each of the players in the game has a rating out of 100, with all abilities taken into account: intelligence, strength, speed, skating, passing, shooting, offense, defense, checking and game smarts being among them. You can go through each team and look at Gretzky's ratings and compare them to some of the lesser lights of the NHL.
Grab your controller and head for the ice, but keep your head up or it will get taken off with a bone-jarring body check.
