NHL '99 one of the best hockey games for N64. If your looking for a game
with action fighting and checking get this. Has all the players, create a
player, shoot out, a season, an exibitation, you can decide the rules and
put how strict they are, and also good music. Oh can not forget you can
control the camera view.
Graphics 8 out of 10
This game as great graphics. You do not see those frizzes like example
Duke Nueukem. Now NHL '99 is awesome, to bad you do not see any blood
come out when you fight though. This game is just a perfect lay out. Checks
look real the players everything the stadium. No mess ups, never.
Music and Sound 7 out of 10
OK to tell the truth the music is not so great. Well it is but here is the
deal: The music comes on during a face off. Got me so far good, OK as soon
as one of the players touch that puck the music stops. That is he dumb part.
OK now the sound effects are great. The sound when some is checked and the
crowd yelling and screaming and the players going "uh" when they fall or get
hit. The fights are the best though.
Game Challenge 8 out of 10
It depends on what you have. You get a pick between difficulties: rookie, pro,
all star. Now I am judging this on all star. Let me tell you about rookie this
is (really) 4 out of 10. On rookie it is: easy to score you might get checked
and easy to trick the opponent. On pro I'd say mm....7 out of 10. It is in
between rookie and all star. Pro you get checked more harder to score
you know the basics. Now......all stars is hard I'd give this a 9 out of 10.
Let me WARN you harder to score need good defense get ready to get
checked all over. Now my friends injuries come in "YES".
Game Play-Fun 8 out of 10
This is a fun game to have. Playing shoot outs a season you can create your
own players!!! See this is a game that you will have and it is not like 007
or Banjo-Kazooie. What I mean is that, see when you pass the whole game
in 007 there is nothing more to play. In NHL '99 if beat a play offs then you
can try to be the worst team and beat the play offs or season. In NHL '99 there
is always a challenge. All sport game are the same way REALLY.
Rumble Pak 7 out of 10
The rumble pack is not that exciting (to me). To feel the rumble pack rumble
do the following: get checked when you score keep hitting the Z button and
hold it then your rumble pack will rumble like heck.
Oh yeah this is a good one. I had a break away needed one goal to tie the
game and guess what happened to me. DARN IT the other team gained on
me and put there stick in front of mine and I did not get a good shot. So I
lost. This happens a lot so BEWARE.
Game Value 7 out of 10
I'd say it is worth it. This game as great graphics options fun oh yeah it
is like watching TV, only your the one in control.
Overall 9 out of 10
This game is great like I said in the beginning it has no frizzies lots of action
fun for all ages all your favorite players are in here you have everything you
all most wanted in a hockey game.
