Pretty good on-the-ice action - and a penalty box! No fights, though.

Whump! Tweeet! You've gotta love how you can whack your opponents in NHL Hockey. Quite an enjoyable game - and it even has penalties! The best part of the game was the checking. In college, we played that game mercilessly - and mirthfully.

Title Screen Title screen for NHL Hockey.
The Rink Nice small touches, such as the perspective on the ice and the slightly different appearance for the goalie. Still, the best part of this game is whacking your opponent w/ the hockey stick.
