Ich habe zwar bislang noch nicht das Vergnügen gehabt, selbst aktiv Eishockey zu spielen, doch als Konsument diverser Übertragungen von Eishockey-Weltmeisterschaften bin ich zum Anhänger dieser Sportart geworden. Superstar Ice Hockey bringt die Rasanz und die Spannung der "echten" Sportart sehr gut rüber. Kernige Fouls und Strafzeiten dürften da natürlich nicht fehlen. Alles in allem eine wirklich empfehlenswerte, anspruchsvolle Bereicherung des Sportspiel-Angebots. Einziger wesentlicher Kritikpunkt: Die Grafik des Spiels nutzt den C64 nicht gerade optimal aus.

An extensive and enjoyable simulation, managing to emulate an unusual sport with style.
Considering you have an interesting looking strategy game section as an integral part of the game, and you prefer your sports sims cerebral rather than reflex, American Ice Hockey is a pucking good game.
The trouble with all this option chasing and team management stuff is it slows the game down. It would have been better if they had used the memory for better arcade-style play - with some elements of beat 'em up. After all ice hockey is probably more suited to flying fists than karate.
JEKYLL and Hyde is what the two versions - IBM PC and C64 - of this game bring to mind; on the PC it's graphically smooth, sonically tolerable and good fun to play; on the C64 it's graphically poor, sonically naff and not a barrel of laughs.
