Le meilleur jeu de hockey sur Playstation : speed, complet, et graphiquement très réussi.
If it was not for the slowdown problems, NHL Breakaway 98 would be great. I know that this is only one thing, but it should have been addressed. I would have rather had no announcement that there was 1 minute left, than to have the slowdown. The gameplay kicks ass and you will keep coming back for more. The glow puck is also a great idea. With other games that aren't as strong as NHL Breakaway 98, I usually find myself saying that I wish I could take bits and pieces from other games to create the perfect game. Aside from the slowdown, NHL Breakaway 98 seems to have done that.
Breakaway combines a boatload of features, great graphics, and stellar gameplay all in one package. Finally, it looks like you can put your Genesis away - a true 32-bit hockey game has finally arrived.
NHL Breakaway '98 may not break or surpass any new boundaries, but it's definitely a good game and shouldn't be overlooked.

If you want Theme Park set to a hockey beat, then Breakaway is for you. If you want quality action and gameplay, wait for a Stanley Cup contender like FaceOff '98 or NHL '98.

NHL Breakaway '98 is a silly game encapsulated in a great hockey management simulation. Unfortunately, like the phoenix, the silly game breaks free and takes away any fun the simulation may have brought you.
