Ordinarily, I'll jump at the chance to review anything that has to do with hockey. But in the case of World Hockey 95 from Merit Studios, it seems I should've looked before I leapt.

Obacht Lenhardt, der Textkasten ist kurz, doch die Luschenliste lang! Die unangenehmsten Eigenschaften von Alex Dampier Hockey deshalb in Stichwort-Kürze: Schwamm-Steuerung unbrauchbar, Spielablauf Marke "Captain Chaos", unübersichtliche Klump-Grafik, langweilige Alibi-Präsentation.

Perhaps this explains Merit Studios' release of WORLD HOCKEY '95, which instantly time-warped me back 10 years or so to an era that, in retrospect, was much less fashionable in terms of computer games than fashion and music. Computer games, and sports simulations in particular, sported crummy graphics, incomplete manuals, archaic interfaces and atrocious gameplay. In this sense, WORLD HOCKEY '95 captivated me. I wondered how something so new could look so bad. This game poses a serious threat to the notion that today's games are consistently better than they were a decade ago.
