    We've had Bolero - on Ice from Torvil and Dean; Disney - on Ice from Disney; we've even had The myths and legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table - on Ice from 70's prog-rock legend Rick Wakeman. Now Actua Sports plans to go one better, with the release of Hockey - on ice or rather, Actua Ice Hockey from Gremlin Interactive.

    The official Ice Hockey game for the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics, Actua Ice Hockey will be the only one to feature the full competition recreated in its entirety. Using all the players from the qualifying teams, plus some from teams that didn't quite make it: (a little artistic licence was needed to include Gt Britain), the Actua Sports range is again offering gamers the ultimate in realism and gameplay. Actua will be the first ice hockey game to have full motion capture providing a degree of style and playability far surpassing anything currently available. Using, among others, Chris Kelland of England's Sheffield Steelers, Gremlin have used the latest 10 camera motion analysis system to capture the movement of real players (and an assortment of hockey officials).

    The result is the most lifelike animations possible. All this is complemented by a highly realistic commentary and atmosphere, from crowd noises and cheerleader chants to the sound of the puck hitting the boards and the players hitting each other!
