Here's the deal, Hitz is the best hockey game on the market. Let me tell you why. Being a huge hockey fan (Go Avalanche!) for a number of years I have always checked out each new hockey game to come along. EA was doing good until the last 3 years and now they're franchise has gone down the tubes. ESPN has an alright game, but there is only a certain amount of realism that I care to digest. I play hockey games because they're fast, hard hitting, and damn fun.
With that in mind, Hitz is the best franchise around. You get extremely hard hitting (I love knocking players through the glass), nice physics, great competition (depending on what difficulty setting you have it on), and now we have 5-on-5 hockey. What's not to like about this game?
A lot of people have claimed that the hitting has toned down. What?!?! My friend and I got 333 hits in one game, that's not toned down. The fighting system is a little on the crappy side of things, but it's bearable. EA has the best fighting system by far. There are a few glitches in the grapics every now and then, but nothing to worry about.
Online play is quite fun. The only problem with online play is beating the crap out of someone and then having them quit before the end of the game. The game lags a little when playing online as well, but it's also bearable. That's to be expected though.
Another issue I have with the grapics is the players' hair. What the hell is with their hair? Could they at least attempt to make the hair look realistic. Plus their faces look a little goofy at times.
Line changes are new to this year's edition, but I'm disappointed that you can't change on the fly.Read more ›
I also like the ability to play in a parking lot and a pond. It added a lot of variety to game play.
It's definitely the best hockey game out there...loads of fun. I highly recommend a purchase!
The graphics don't seem quite as sharp as the EA game (no sleeve numbers on the jerseys, for example) but the PS2 controller is easier to use (at least to me), the action seems a little quicker and after just an hour of play, I checked a Russkie right through the glass - major kudos!
The coolest feature, though, is the "pick-up" games - three different rinks and "regular joe" teams beating the snot out of each other in a race to a set number of goals. Good fun! It'd be even better if there was an option to create your own pick-up teams, as you can in the franchise mode (and a wider selection of team names for frachises wouldn't hurt either).
If you're looking for a good video hockey game, there might be choices that are arguably better, but this'n is a load o' fun - any game where the Blue Jackets can beat the Avalanche by seven goals has to be good!
p.s., GO SHARKS!!
Overall the most addictive ice smasher around, great game, get it.
