Interesting screenshot and ad from the 26-year old granddaddy of NHL 2K8 and NHL08: Ice Hockey by Activision.
Look at those graphics. Had to be a riveting game with bone crushing bodychecks and... yes, even faceoffs! To top it off: no referees - not a game for the faint of heart.
Who's that at center ice? Looks like a pixelated slim rookie Chris Chelios.
Rip This Magazine in Half.
A Though Tryout for Ice Hockey by Activision.
You can't be nice on the ice. You have to be tough. So, we've devised this little test to find out if you're tough enough for Ice Hockey, Activision-style.
It's one of the most head-to-head competitive video games ever designed for the Atari or Sears games systems.
How tough is it? Face-off. Breakaways. Stick-checking. Body-checking. Tripping. Battling the boards. And no referees.
So, go on. Give this magazine your best shot. We know it won't be easy. But then again, neither is our game.
