Product Description

NHL FACEOFF 2001 has all of the features you'd expect from a top-notch hockey game: all of the real teams, stadiums, and players, as well as modes of play like Exhibition and a full-fledged 82-game Season. There are three new modes in NHL FACEOFF 2001: Tournament, Shoot-Out, and Practice. Mike Emerick and Darren Pang handle the announcing duties, giving you that authentic NHL feel. If you've played any of the games in this series before, you'll instantly recognize the stellar gameplay of NHL FACEOFF 2001. Once you actually get on the ice and start moving the puck around, you'll find that the game's controls are smooth and precise, and you'll find plenty of hockey moves that are easily executed. You can either pass the puck using the standard "push the d-pad in the direction you want the pass to go," or you can choose to use the more reliable and predictable icon passing. Mike Emerick and Darren Pang handle the announcing duties, giving you the authentic in-the-game feel. You can also go at it with up to eight human players via the multitap.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great game - good AI and looks fantastic! September 12, 2000
By A Customer
FaceOff 2001 is a great game for anyone who likes the FaceOff series or hockey games in general. The games AI is greatly improved from last year's version. On Pro settings, you're looking at games like 5-3 (as opposed to last seasons 20-1 blowouts.) The models and audio, are near carbon copies to last year's version, but they were already great. All the new teams and jerseys are here - plus the rosters are updated fairly well. The shootout and draft modes are a nice touch. This is definitely a great hockey game, and a huge improvement over the dismal FaceOff 2000.
Now the reasons I didn't rate it 5 stars: as mentioned, the audio and player models are carbon copied from FaceOff 2000. The stats are somewhat limited. Classic teams would have also been nice. Plus, player creation is fairly weak. And lastly, the presentation could use some work - player intros, more in-depth commentary, etc.
But overall, it's a great game. Also, I'd also check out EA Sports 2001 or Fox Sports' hockey title - it's a good year for PS hockey.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another poor title from 989 October 13, 2000
Here we have yet another in a long line of half-hearted attempts by 989 studios. Sony just cannot make good sports games, as we have seen in pretty much every version of X-games, Faceoff, MLB, and NBA. It's obvious they take all, and by 'all' I mean ALL, their ideas from EA Sports, leaving the originality and innovation up to someone else, as usual. Stick with the original and best hockey available, EA Sports NHL 2001. Heck, NHL '94 on my Genesis is more fun than this.

Hockey titles on the Playstation just aren't too good this year. NHL 2001 by EA Sports was not a good title. 989 Studios has finally bested the hockey battle this season, but that's not saying too much.
The good. It's hockey. The gameplay is done very well. Control is excellent, goalies are very realistic, line changes are unique (there's a button to change your forwards, and a different button to change your defensemen). Scoring goals is realistic where if you have a defensive breakdown, you're going to give up goals (you let someone wind a slapshot in the slot and your goalie will most likely get beat). However, great goalies do cover their own with some amazing saves after they give up bad rebounds--whereas lesser goalies will most likely give up a rebound goal with no defensive help. The play-by-play is done well with one of the best in Mike Emerik. There's even Zambonies bewteen periods and the three-stars-of-the-game and introduced when the game ends.
The bad. Well, this game looks terrible. With the exception of the "C" and "A's" on certain jerseys, the players and goalies look underdone and blocky. Player animation is beyond chopy, and the sounds are the worst I've ever heard in a hockey game ("Go Baby, Go"??? And hitting the post sounds pathetic--sounds similiar to a coffee mug being tapped with a spoon). Line changes are unique, but they are done poorly and slow--Every player exiting the ice during play uses the trap door? Not to mention the puck usually goes out of play along with the players going to the bench via the trap door. One of the biggest problems is the sim mode when in season play. You had better turn off injuries or you'll eventually be in trouble. How? You are only allowed 17 players on your roster!

3.0 out of 5 stars 989 Studios shoots, OH, it hits the post... November 13, 2000
Gee, it's Hockey time already... time to watch the greats and play as them with your favorite game; Bure, Roy, Demitra, Hull... and in this game, they are done NO justice.
The game itself is fine... for FaceOff 2000. IT'S THE SAME GAME!!! You would THINK that for probably the last PlayStation hockey game by 989, they'd go all out. Nope. Same graphics, same modes, same horrible commentary. I agree, it's a good game, but could EASILY have been improved upon. The controls, camera, AI, everything's the same as last year; which is not necessarily bad, it's just not good enough to call iteslf a sequel.
RATINGS: out of 5
Graphics: 4.5- good, but outdated as well. NHL 2001 blows this one away. Sound: 0.5- this kills the game. Somebody, shut the announcers up!! Control: 4.8- very tight and responsive; the best part of the game. Fun-ocity: 4- the anouncing and few improvements still don't outweigh the fun.
OVERALL: 3 Stars. for die-hard fans only.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a hockey game... November 26, 2000
Well, quite frankly, the character design, the puck control, and the arenas look exactly the same as they did in NHL Faceoff '99. There are some new features, but nothing far too important. Everytime the puck hits the post, if you're lucky, you'll hear a "It hit the post!". Otherwise, the character design looks like it was rushed, the goaltenders look as bizarre as they ever have, and the commentary has been all the same.
Otherwise, this game is just really fun. You can create some really neat plays. Slapshots, dekes, tip-ins, one-timers, it's all there.
I hope that this version for the PlayStation2 has more effort added to it. Because quite frankly, it isn't really fair to leave out the PSX like that...

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst one yet September 27, 2000
By A Customer
I recently played NHL Faceoff 2001, and was sadly disappointed by what I saw. The gameplay is basically the same, and the season option isn't worth anything. One season? What can you do in just one season. Like I said, the gameplay is basically the same , but unfortunately not improved. trading players is nearly impossible, and once you do figuer out the puzzle, the other team opposes it most of the time. If you want to play a REAL hockey game, try NHL 2001.
