This item can be a great addition to your game collection both to play and display!Amazon.com Electronic Arts continues its hard-hitting hockey series with NHL 2000--a game that skates back to the Sega Genesis roots of the franchise for some key elements of gameplay. Serious sports fans can take advantage of options that set up all the true NHL rules for each game, but the default settings make it easy for all gamers to hop right in and skate to victory. The skating is silky smooth and the graphics are extremely fast, including a motion-blurred puck during high-speed shots. There's nothing more satisfying than knocking the wind out of another team's lead scorer with the dedicated big-hit button, and the incredibly responsive controls make finesse shots possible. Icon passing makes sure players get the puck to the correct man, and those who wish to leave nothing to chance can take control of their goalkeepers in midplay. With the help of Multi-Tap adapters, up to eight people can play this king of hockey games. --Jeff YoungPros: Options and AI opponent strength scale to all skill levels of gamers Big hits, slap shots, one-timers, and other hockey maneuvers are easy to execute Cons: The game is much better when played against human opponents Product description Strap on your skates, grab your stick and head out onto the ice for some hockey action in Electronic Arts' NHL 2000.

Review The designers over at Electronic Arts must have listened to the fans who complained that the only thing NHL 99 was missing was a better frame rate, because NHL 2000 delivers that and then some. NHL 2000 is clearly the choice when it comes to hockey games, as it appeals to both the casual hockey gamer and hard-core puck heads alike. As you would expect from a game with a name like NHL 2000, all the real players, arenas, and teams (even the new Atlanta Thrashers, and international teams) come with the game. The game has all the usual modes of play, like exhibition, season, and tournament, and you can even take a team through a ten-year career mode and draft, trade, and pick up free agents. The most notable new gameplay feature is the new big-hit and big-deke buttons. These affect the game's overall play style in a big way. When you're gliding down the ice on a breakaway and you hit the big-deke button, you can fake out the goalie just like in real hockey. The big-hit button, of course, speaks for itself. Speaking of big hits, the play mechanics for the game's fights have been changed to a button-mashing scheme so that you must pull an all-out assault on the controller to win. The gameplay and control in NHL 2000 is much more responsive than last year's title's, thanks to a healthier frame rate. In addition to the added control, this game is much faster than last year's. Simply taking the puck down the ice feels much more natural now, not to mention slamming someone into the boards at full speed. The AI seems to be about the same - easy on beginner and godlike on the highest setting with a good team. Visually, NHL 2000 takes a step in the right direction. While at first glance it may not look quite as clean as last year's title, the improved frame rate of the game more than makes up for it. The game moves faster and truer to life, overall, and as a result the game's control are so much more responsive than that of NHL 99. The players themselves look a bit more realistic and not as blocky. In fact, during instant replays you can see the faces of the players, and they actually look like their real-life counterparts. The players skate, turn, shoot, and fall very realistically. NHL broadcaster Jim
