The ability to instigate fights after the whistle is by far the best feature of the game. That and the theme music, which is pretty badass. If the players had more movement in the fights like in '93, it would be the ultimate goon game.

The part I really find funny about is the penalties. Of course in the real NHL, if two guys receive minor penalties and then a third gets a penalty, the third guys' penalty doesn't start until the first guys' penalty is finished. In this game...as soon as you go to the box, the time just starts ticking down right away regardless of how many guys are in there. Even the guy who gets the fight instigator penalty should be in the box for 7 minutes...but someone else serves the minor...so he's always out in 5...haha.

I have to agree with Lou that the theme music is unbelievable in '92. Sometimes when I was a kid, I would listen to it as long as it would play, then start it over.

That is indeed the song...although different game.

EA hockey(the one you have there) has international teams instead of nhl teams.

That's the one. The slide guitar and harmonizing solos are dirrrty

Actually it's the correct song, just the wrong image for the game. NHL ''91 had the same msuci but it was sped up, just like the game was...
