I really don't understand EA Sports nowadays. They bring us a lot of greats sports games, such as NBA
, but they make it a lot harder to play, unless you have a gamepad. The same thing happens to the NHL series
, a sport release that made wanna try out hockey myself. That's why I prefer the older games, rather than the new ones. But let's concentrate now on NHL '95. What can I say about the game? At first, when I heard that this was also released for the SNES and Sega Genesis, I had thought about playing later NHL games(somewhere from '99 to 2003). However, when I gave it a try, i thought that it's actually a good hockey game
, but there are a few things that I hated about this game. First of all, this game has no option the start a fight. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't hockey players sometimes burst into a fight
even in real life? The newer games has made wanna fight because they're a lot of fun. Secondly, the auto goalie is useless most of the times. He's unable to defend some moves like the one-on-one move. The only way to defend your goal post, is to manually control the goalie. There is even a glitch that makes the game freeze and it is said that it is caused by the newly created players or trading. I am not familiar with older NHL games and I've heard that are news moves implemented in the games such as fake shots and drop passes, but all I have to say about the control is that they are okay, as well as the graphics and sound.There is nothing else to say about this games. It's just hockey
! So if you think that you can have with this game, if you look past all the flaws than give NHL '95
a try. Otherwise stick to the older versions, which in my opinion are far superior and fun.
