Nintendo Ice Hockey is my favorite hockey game! Thin guy is so fast and Fat guy is so strrooooong. Medium guy is useless tho, slow and soft, just like Ribeiro.

DUDE YES! That game was the friggin best game ever made. The fat guy would constantly bump you off the puck, and I disagree the medium guy had a better shot then the small guy and was faster then the bigger guy.

Yeah, I know, but I'd rather have a superfast player or a super strong player rather than a guy that can do anything OK. Let's say he is Sundstrom.

For me the NHL (EA) series will always have an edge because they are available for PC. That way you can get up to date rosters from NHLDepot website with all the rookies, updated overalls, all the trades, improved gameplay etc...

NHL2k6 is a better simulation but the graphics are horrible and you can't get updated rosters easily and those updates are not as complete as the PC NHL ones.

You must like blocky players. The only player that looks right is cube.

Nope ps2. Nhl 06 has wayy better graphics and presentation this year. I think ill be switching back to Ea next year since they'll have the espn license. But this year both games are pretty crap.
Favorite's would be blades of steel and nhl 94

Ahh, I never played the PS2 version. I like the XBOX version just fine. I haven't seen an NHL player that looks tiny in the NHL these days. Even Ribs looks big in his equipment. I find their graphics to be the cleanest (maybe other than the cut scenes, but I don't watch those). And the gameplay....that's incomparable. EA just plain sucks.

I could check out NHL 98 and 2000 later... maybe 2001. I'm not sure if I have that.

The videos are ripped from the playstation versions.

EA Sports NHL 95 is the best hockey game ever......



Back in the day me and 3 friends (4 total) split the teams in 4 and played a whole season (if my teams played each other, we let the AI play the game).

it was great learning to control the goalie during the season and dominating till everyone learned. Now me and 2 buddies still play on occasion but we use the create players.

We use 3 game tapes and since you can make 20 players we each get 10.

2 players per game tape. the are labeled Toro vs Diego, Toro vs Dug, Dug vs Diego


We have great games 2-1 3-2 scores cause we control the goalie it is usually low scoring games. The way the players skate is the best in this version .

We learned how to create the perfect players.
In attributes if you give 92 points it becomes 99 after he is created(92 on speed becomes 99, 92 on checking becomes 99 etc.

except for stickhandling, 64 becomes 99...

On the tapes we make a draft and suppliment our teams with the players we draft .(i have MTL with Roy in nets and bourque ,coffey, chelios on Defence and so on and Dug has Boston with Belfour in nets) they are the 2 best goalies in the game.


I wish that they would make a new version of the same game with just updated players and maybe a little upgrade on visual appearence, but keep the skating style the same (very important!!!).

Maybe let u get control of the goalie even if u get checked.

the rest of the so called bugs i have conquered, like the pass goal strait down the pipe.

You just have to take control of the goalie when the other team is going to shoot or has a good scoring chance.

Unlike new games where it is almost impossible to take control of the goalie with any skill. But in 95 you put the goalie in position and press save and u make the save.... like u should. I hate AI goalies.

Any way Sega EA Sports NHL95 Rules


94 with the fighting is good also but lacks the season ability of playing for all the teams not just picking one and going through the season and playoffs. but playin every game in the schedule for every team!!! with your buddies all year rules.
