When compared to the dreadful NES Sports Soccer which came a few years prior to this, the differences really show. Ice Hockey is just a joy to play, playing the CPU will keep you entertained for a while, but of course the game truly shines when competing against a buddy. Many NES fans claim that Konami’s Blades of Steel which was released at the same time is a superior game, but we think there is not much between them.

Were you an Icer in the '80s, or was yours a heart of Steel? Konami's rival game hasn't yet been announced for release on the Virtual Console, but it's not out of the realm of possibility. Japan already has titles from the Big K available for download – Super Castlevania IV, Contra III: The Alien Wars. They even have an NES title on offer in the form of Gradius. So Blades of Steel's likelihood of imminent arrival is good, just not confirmed. What will you do? It's 500 points, friends, and you can go either way. You can invest now in Ice Hockey, enjoying the antics of overweight skaters checking underfed opponents. Or you can wait, biding your time and hoping for that inevitable press release. My advice? Don't be a waiter. Pull on your parka and step into the chill – if you're a hockey fan of any kind, download Ice Hockey.

Ich hielt zwar Konamis Blades of Steel schon immer für die bessere, weil dynamischere Adaption des Sports, aber auch Ice Hockey legt einem keine Steine in den Weg, wenn es darum geht, sich mit einem Freund ein paar schnelle Pucks um die Ohren zu dreschen. Wer sich ein Sportspiel aus dem NES-Angebot picken möchte, der sollte definitiv zu diesem greifen.

Das simple Gerangel auf dem Eis hat inzwischen bestenfalls einen trashigen Charme. Nichtsdestotrotz lächelt einen das Spielchen alle paar Monate mal wieder an, da es einen an die guten alte NES-Nachmittage mit seinem besten Kumpel erinnert. Wer dem Spiel keinen Retro-Bonus abgewinnen kann, ignoriert "Ice Hockey" allerdings besser.
