Summary

The best sportsgame ever!!

The Good

The gameplay is the best I ever saw in a computer game. The 96er NHL Hockey is the best, because the later editions are not so realistic like this one. The goalies are good, the AI is great and the feeling is unsurpassable. There are also all great NHL-Stars included (Gretzky, Messier, Lemieuxm, Lindros, Jagr, etc.). The option screens are clear and the music is still great. The graphics in a match looks very good and with the speech during the game you forget playing a computer game!

The Bad

For me there are too many fights, and this means there are too many 5 minute penalties in the game! Otherwise there is nothing to criticism.

The Bottom Line

The NHL series from EA Sports is another class and can't be verify with other hockey games.
