huge nhl fan here and this may be the most dissapointing arcade game ive ever played, along with the newly released nba one which looks like it was thrown together in about 2 days. I know arcade games arent supposed to rival retail discs but good god.
Justice may be blind, but I am not.

IGN fails. It's a good game.. on PSN at least. 400 points is decent!

YES!!! I've been waiting on a deal on this for months. The price is right! Now.. to get XBox Live hooked up in my new apartment..

Don't listen to the 5.9 review. If you love the old NHL Hitz games, you'll like it. It's a pretty fun game, especially at 400 MS points.

how's the online play though? is is steady, laggy or what? also, will you be able to find a match or will it be like other xbla games that make it rare to find someone to play with or against online. another thing, how long will you be able to play this for? heard something about them having the right to discontinue the online part of the game at any time if they want to just like with battlefield 1943.

I liked it. I bought it a while ago... it has most of the more popular players and as the title says, its 3on3 not including the goalies. There are power-ups in it that can make it a ton of fun like freezing an opponent into a ice cube or them slipping on a banana peel. It was always easy to get a game on xbox live when I played, but I havent played it in a while.

I think I'll pick this up, I enjoyed the demo. Seems like it's worth a shot at 400 points.

The achievements are super easy ... I finished the game in a little less than two hours, only thing that sucks is one of the achievements requires three controllers to accomplish (Team Player – Play a quick ranked match with two guests – 50 GS Points), guitars can be substituted for extra controllers.

It's a fun game. I bought it the day it came out (live and breathe hockey). It's a game that I can play with the kids and we all have fun with it. The special arcade like power ups are fun, shrink the goalie, super speed, make your player giant, freeze other players and more stuff like that. Haven't played online with it that much though so I can't vouch for that aspect of it. I'd highly recommend it for 400pts.

This looks fun, but then I noticed this: "EA MAY RETIRE ONLINE FEATURES AFTER 30 DAYS NOTICE POSTED ON www.ea.com OR 30 DAYS AFTER THE LAST DAY OF THE 2008- 2009 NHL SEASON".

After the 2008-2009 season? Wasn't that last year's season? So is there any online play with this game or not? I guess even if there is they could pull the plug on it any day now.

If memory serves, that's what they essentially did for NHL 2002 on the GBA (which I think was the only one in the series that hit the handhelds).

This is why I'm leaning towards skipping this one. I love hockey, but I've got a feeling EA's going to yank the online play in a few months to promote a newer, "better" NHL Arcade 2010 release.

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

yes, I too am skeptical now because I don't want to purchase it then find out days later that the online part won't work anymore. that would cripple the game and make it pointless to have then I would say 'i could of gotten something else instead'. They haven't pulled the plug on battlefield1943 yet but this is on sale so it could be an indication..

That's usually what happens with these "Deals of the Week". They put stuff on sale right before a newer version comes out, or a GOTY bundle that is going to include all DLC.

+1 for NHL 94. They put a version on NHL 06 for ps2 with slightly different gameplay and different rosters. 06 can be found for like 4 bucks at GS. If you've got a way to play ps2 games, I highly reccomend checking that out. Call me crazy but I'd easily drop 1600 points on a version of 94 if was the genesis version and had online play.
