Pass – but not as in pass the puck. This is a game that does not translate well to the tiny screen of the GBA, simply because shortcuts had to be made graphically that took out a big reason to play the Backyard titles – personality. Solid options but the game falters in terms of gameplay, graphics and sound.

Playing Backyard Hockey makes me wish for the return of true hockey on the Game Boy Advance. There has only been one five-on-five hockey title on the handheld, and that's far too few if you ask me. The Backyard Hockey box should be plenty obvious that a real rendition of the sport isn't inside, but what's there isn't as bad as it appears to be. There's a lot of decent ideas and implementations in this kids' based hockey just needs to be fleshed out in a true hockey experience for the pros.
