NHL Hockey '95 might get better grades in school, but if it caught up with Brett Hull in a dark alley, it would get whupped! Hull's brutal checks and high scores make for a fun, less strategic style of gameplay that action fiends will prefer.
Brett Hull Hockey '95 fails somewhere in the middle of the pack. It ranks above many other SNES hockey games, but it doesn't have the graphics and control needed to land a spot among the big bad boys. But if you're suffering from a bad case of hockey withdrawal (and boy am I with ya!), you may want to rent this one and see if it sparks your interest.
Video Games & Computer Entertainment
While the SNES and Genesis version of Accolade's Brett Hull Hockey '95 were both developed by Radical Entertainment, each is quite different from the other. The most obvious difference is the graphical viewpoint. The SNES game is similar to EA's NHL games but the rink is titled back so you can see a lot farther down the ice. Slick Mode-7 background effects keep you close to the action.
The Video Game Critic
Al Michael's play-by-play sounds unintentionally comical, because he only refers to players by their number. "Takes a hit from 60. Passes to 2. Stolen by 47. Over to 10..." The crowd noise is spirited, adding life to the arena. Between periods porno music kicks in as you view a pixelated mug shot of Brett Hull strung out on Quaaludes. Brett Hull Hockey 95 never had much of a chance against EA's NHL juggernaut, but if you give it a shot, you might just like it.
