NHL Blades of Steel 2000
Totale in possesso dei membri
Designed to recall the spirit of its classic NES namesake more than the actual gameplay of that 8-bit title, this release from Konami features real-life NHL teams and players rendered in 3D for an authentic pro hockey experience. PS gamers take sophisticated control over passes and shots, setting up the plays, breakaways, and one-timers that could make all the difference between winning the cup and losing the edge. A detailed system for fighting is also included, for those times when the pros feel obliged to seek retaliation outside of the regular rules of the game.
The game modes featured include an Exhibition mode, Season, and Playoffs. Options include setting the difficulty level ( either Rookie, Pro, or All-Star) of the computer opponent and another option specifically for the difficulty of the opposing goalie, length of each period (5,10, or 20 minutes), length of the overtime period (either 5 minutes or sudden death), turning on or off penalties, off-sides, icing, two line passes, fighting, fatigue, and injuries. Referees can be set to either be lenient, normal, or strict when officiating the game. Also line changes and control of the goalie can be set to either be automatic or manual. Finally their is an option to either have the game be a 4-on-4 or a 5-on-5 contest during the overtime period.
Some moves during the game that players can perform is that they can pass, steal, take wrist shots, slap shots, and throw body checks. Also, the game offers several different camera viewpoints (TV, Chase, Move, Top, On Ice, Normal 1, 2, and 3, Active 1 and 2, plus Scoreboard 1 and 2) when viewing the action.
In the season mode, players can set the number of games to be played to either be 7, 41 or 82 games. Playoffs can be set to either be a one game affair, or expanded to either be a best-of-three, five or seven game series. During the season, team and free-agent players also can be traded. Also, this mode features full statistical tracking.
