The first of three Wayne Gretzky games from Bethesda. It contains everything that could be found in a hockey rink, from big hits and fighting to icings and offsides. It's not only about what is on the ice but also outside, offering the player plenty of coaching options and gives you the ability to create your own players and teams.
