The Press Says

The computer fights too much, and I think the graphics are goofy, but not necessarily in a good way goofy. If you want a true, amazing arcade-style goofy hockey game, play NHL Hitz 2003 (the one with Chris Pronger on the cover). This game is an decent hockey game experience, but it's not something that I feel is necessary to play to get the Genesis ice hockey experience. Consider Hit the Ice the back-up goalie to greater hits like NHL '94-'97. It's got that "not the worst game ever, but really, is there anything that good about it?" feel to it.

Like any decent hockey game, there are fights, and they always end with one guy on his back, foaming at the mouth. Funny at first, they soon get old, and don't really have much impact on the game itself. Hit The Ice had the right idea. The game certainly LOOKS fun. But the limited control and mediocre gameplay really drag it down.
