    So, if you're an N64 owner, it's a fine time to go pick up EA Sports NHL 99. <br />

    You may thinks it's a little late in the season for a hockey review but I dare say it's not. After all, this is when the National Hockey League separates the men from the boys, the sheep from the goats, the Scotsmen from... Read Full Review

    A very fun and addictive game. Easy to pick up and play.

    As an extremely casual nhl fan, i can say that this nhl game is a thrill to play. Seriously fun, and tense if you play against someone of equal skill. The graphics are great for an n64 game, character models are like... Read Full Review
