Excellent sounds and realistic bounces will make hockey purists take to this game. The game starts out slowly, but it grows on you. The mechanics of hockey, skating and passing are stressed. You can lay hard body checks at your opponents. It's an improvement over last year's effort. It still hard to score, but it is fun to play. Brett Hull fans will love this game.
Game Players (May, 1995)
The rest of the game's modes, options and extras mimics those found on the Super NES version. Sportscaster Al Michaels calls play-by-play, but he has a few too many pet phrases that he constantly repeats. Exhibition, playoff, seasonal and coaching play modes are featured, with the length of playoffs and seasons being adjustable. Other options allow you to toggle penalties, line changes and period duration.
On the Genesis, the rink is seen from a three-quarter angle, somewhat like Accolade's Pele! soccer games. The camera scrolls up and down the rink without any zooming effects. Both games feature well drawn graphics, but the Genesis players seem a bit sharper, probably since there's no scaling going on. The SNES game, however, has smoother and much more detailed animation, including some great goalie glove saves.

Spielspaß, meine Damen und Herren von Accolade, schon mal gehört davon? Offensichtlich nicht, denn auch Brett Hull Hockey‘ 95 geht den Weg fast aller´Accolade-Spiele, nämlich den Bach runter. Die digitalisierte Sprachausgabe hört sich zwar ganz nett an, ich finde es auch toll, daß man dem Modul eine Batterie spendiert hat und schließlich haben die Entwickler sogar alle aktuellen NHL-Spieler eingebaut. Nur was nützt das Ganze, wenn der Spielspaß nicht stimmt. Die Akteure auf dem Eis bewegen sich langsam und hölzern, man bekommt kein Gefühl für die Steuerung und Tore entstehen mehr zufällig als durch geplante Angriffe. Ich wüßte keinen Grund, warum sich irgend jemand Brett Hull‘ 95 zulegen sollte, holt Euch lieber NHL ‘95.
GamePro (US) (Mar, 1995)
Pro hockey is a fast game, and unfortunately, the speed and control required to simulate this sport effectively have been sacrificed for the graphics. There are better rinks to play on.
Mega Fun (Jan, 1995)
Während der Matches könnt Ihr Euch auf Wunsch die ganze Zeit von US-Sportreporter Al Michaels zulabern lassen, jedoch geht einem das ständige „He shoots!“ schnell auf den Senkel. Dies gilt leider auch für das Gameplay, denn allzu dumpfbackig schlittern Accolades Kufencracks übers Eis. Pässe landen kaum beim eigenen Mann, die Schußstärke läßt sich nur schwer regulieren und das Scrolling verliert bei schnellen Aktionen des öfteren den Anschluß. Brett Hull ist sowohl technisch wie auch spielerisch höchst durchschnittlich, schade eigentlich, daß die Programmierer nicht gestreikt haben.
20 (Jan 03, 2011)
I digress. Al Michael's voice is incredibly disjointed and, frankly, stupid. There's no need for it to be in the game since it adds nothing to the experience other than a "wow, that's bad" experience. There's nothing here that anyone remembers, so why would I want to play it? This game is awful, like the seats they make you sit in to watch it! Overall, this might be the worst hockey game I've played on the Genesis, and I don't like it one bit.
