| EA Sports was just revolutionary those days...|
EA Hockey got us bodycheckin' while playin' soccer! (Imagine if we played Quake).
In those days the gameplay was good.
Like FIFA later, this game brought in a different game-view compared to other games in that genre.
While in other games (I can only think of Ice Hockey & Blades of Steel) you had a side-view, here it was top-down. Somehow, the action around the crease became more fun...
NHL 95 still stands out as one of the best experiences. 96 had faster gameplay, but 95 got me playing the whole competition with my pals over and over again..(screw roster updates =p)
On the G/MD Electronic Arts rules...period...
Bring in the Zamboni!!
