All-Star is a distant second place to NHL '95. This is a second purchase for hockey diehards who have to buy every hockey game very made. For everyone else, slapshoot your dollars elsewhere.

The return of fighting to hockey games provides NHL All-Star Hockey '95 with some extra punch and, although EA Sports' NHL '95 still sets the pace, hockey fans want to give this one a look.

Some fun can be extracted from this cart, but it lacks the depth that's necessary for a long-lasting challenge. Unless you care more about fighting and graphics than solid controls and gameplay, you'll skate right by this rink.

Eigentlich sollte sich Sega ja schämen, denn für NHL All-Star Hockey haben die Entwickler wirklich schamlos bei Electronic Arts geklaut. Das einzige, was sie nicht kopieren konnten, ist das Spieldesign und genau da hapert es bei Segas Eishockey-Simulation. Die Spieler steuern sich längst nicht so genau wie bei EA, Stürmer und Verteidiger reagieren teilweise sehr seltsam. Bei NHL Hockey warten Stürmer am langen Eck, laufen in die Freiräume und stehen bereit um Pässe in Direktabnahmen zu verwandeln. Darin liegt die Stärke der EA-Serie, und genau da zieht NHL All-Star Hockey klar den Kürzeren. Da nützen auch die vielen nützlichen Features nichts, denn der Spielspaß geht zu schnell flöten. Die Palastrevolution ging ins Auge, vielleicht klappt‘s ja nächstes Jahr.

A good try, but this game couldn't carry the water bottle to the bench when compared to other hockey games on the market. The fighting sequences in the game are very good and fans of the old, 8-Bit Blades of Steel will enjoy going toe-to-toe with the NHL's finest fighters. It's very hard to score in the game; the computerized Ducks can be the Canadaians with ease.

To be fair, nothing here really makes me want to pick up the cartridge and throw it against the wall, though, like I did with Sunday Night NFL and Pro Quarterback. It's just going to make me not want to play it, which I won't. I think I remember first getting it in 2002 at a baseball card shop in Kalamazoo, alongside the first 3D Madden game for Playstation. I must have been a masochistic gamer that day. NHL ASH '95 is just another dust collector, my friends. Which is probably why no one ever brings this game up when they talk about Genesis sports titles. Go play NHL '94, or any EA NHL game instead. Sega Sports (the brand) games on the Genesis as a whole are fairly iffy, and this game is just not fun and did not serve it's purpose of dethroning EA from the hockey gaming throne. That didn't stop Sega from trying though.
