Gamer's Pulse (Aug 13, 2000)
I said it once and I will say it again: this game has faults...faults that are more than made up for by strong game play, and just plain fun.
Faceoff 2000 is easy to pick up and play from the start but has enough depth for seasoned players to get fully involved. Add the wealth of facts and stats that can be tweaked to taste and it's a highly polished game. Superb value for both the novice and the hardcore fan. One of the best ice hockey games around.
Frankly, I'd like to see them catch up to where EA's NHL 2000 is by having a deeper season mode with a fantasy draft, or something similar. Also, many of their other game modes aren't as polished or as fleshed out as they could be. To most hockey fans, NHL FaceOff 2000 will offer more than enough depth. The only problem is that hardcore hockey fans might be a little disappointed, especially if they want to stock up the Atlanta Thrasher team with an expansion draft. But even if they are a little disappointed by that, FaceOff's great gameplay will be enough to win them over.

NHL Faceoff 2000 mag dan technisch prima in elkaar steken en alles hebben wat je van een hockeygame verwacht, het mist helaas wat persoonlijkheid en karakter.
Mega Fun (Jan, 2000)
NHL Face Off 2000 bietet keine großartigen Veränderungen gegenüber dem Vorgänger, welche einen Kauf rechtfertigen würden. Die etwas lieblos wirkende Grafik zeigt sich nicht gerade von der aktuellsten Seite und vermiest den Spielspaß in so mancher Situation. Summa summarum bleibt der Titel nur für Cracks interessant, die entweder den Vorgänger oder aber NHL 2000 noch nicht ihr Eigen nennen.

This is definitely rent material unless you’re a die-hard hockey fan. Although 989 did slightly improve on overall game quality it is still a lackluster title and way behind its competition. If you’re trying to decide on a hockey game for your collection and you’re not wanting to rent them beforehand, I recommend EA Sports’ NHL 2000.

My suggestion? Save yourself some money. Rent it for the commentary by Pang and Doc Emrick, who incidentally is one of the best hockey announcers around today. If you want to satiate the true hockey fan slumbering inside you, try the competition. It just plays better.
GameSpot (Sep 28, 1999)
Overall, NHL FaceOff 2000 is an improvement in just about every category. While the improvements are mostly minor, the reworked AI will definitely please fans of the series. But if FaceOff's brand of hockey wasn't your bag last year, this year is likely to be an instant replay.
Video Games (Jan, 2000)
Wäre NHL FaceOff 2000 das erste und einzige Eishockey-Game, so hätte es mit Sicherheit eine Existenzberechtigung. Doch angesichts der starken Konkurrenz muss man dieses Game leider als überflüssig bezeichnen. Es gibt keinen Aspekt, in dem nicht andere Games deutlich besser sind. Einzig Sammler, die den Ehrgeiz haben, wirklich jedes NHL-Game besitzen zu müssen, sollten hier zugreifen.
NHL Face Off 2000 är helt enkelt rakt igenom ett mycket sämre spel än NHL 2000. Grafiken är fulare, spelkontrollen sämre och motståndarna mer lättlurade. Hårt kanske somliga tycker, men faktum är att det här är ett spel som så slaviskt följer utvecklarnas ideal utan att tillföra någonting eget att det egentligen saknar existensberättigande. Enda behållningen ligger i möjligheten att skapa sina egna spelare och skada Forsberg och alla andra superstjärnor som ändå är helt värdelösa.
