All Game Guide
It is too bad that Hat Trick doesn't measure up to its looks. The graphics are reasonably attractive and the sound is better than the average 7800 title. However, the game play just doesn't rise to the same level. Underneath the attractive facade is a game as simple as many of the early Atari 2600 titles.
The Video Game Critic
It has become apparent to me that sports games are NOT the strength of the 7800. This one-on-one hockey game contains some very choppy animation and is about as fun as getting smacked in the head with a puck. The rink looks nice, but the players are difficult to discern from the overhead view. Control is unresponsive and the animation is rough, making this game almost as difficult to watch as to play (but not quite!). On a positive note, you can control the goalie by holding down the fire button. Overall this is pretty bad.
