Here's a great GameZone special... two great EA Sports games for the price of one!
NHL 2001 is real hockey, live the experience. High-flyin’, hard hittin’, intense powerplay hockey action is back with EA SPORTS NHL 2001. Lace up the skates and play with or against all 30 National Hockey League teams including the new expansion Columbus Blue Jackets and Minnesota Wild. NHL 2001 invites the world to play with the addition of 20 International teams including Ukraine and Latvia. Feel the full hockey flavor by building a custom team with the jersey editor, logo importer, and customizable city and team names.
EA SPORTS puts you “in the game” with the “Face in the Game” feature—witness fans throw their hats on the ice in your honor after a hat trick. With a variety of game modes including Quick Game, Season Play, Career Mode (PC and PSX only), Playoffs, and Tournaments, all the goals are a slapshot away.
There are over 50 international sides to choose from, but if you want to keep things closer to home there are 17 top leagues from which to choose a team. And as for the players? Their facial expressions and body language add to the natural motion captured moves that the likes of Scholes, Matthaus, Davids and Mendieta helped create, and players display varying degrees of urgency depending on their position on the pitch.
New cinematic camera design and subtly absorbing ambient sounds mean full immersion, and with details as minute as rotating ad boards, moving clouds and weather lighting changes, you'll swear it's more than just a game.
