Description from the packaging.

War on ice.

Players travel over thirty miles an hour, the puck over one hundred. The fastest team sport today, it's more popular than baseball or football wherever it's played. FaceOff! features the largest animated players, a hands-on fight mode and a close-up Shot Cam. It's hockey the way it was meant to be- fast, furious and violent.

Take no prisoners.
Hipcheck the dipsy-doodling forward into the cheapseats, then rush end to end and stuff 5.8 ozs. of rubber through the goalie's blocker.

Don't get mad, get even!
Slug it out as the Fight Cam zooms in. Better fight coverage than TV.

Match wits in coaching mode.
Play editor, league play and statistics recreate the excitement of big-league play.

Go one on one for 72 inches of net.
Shot Cam gives you a close-up of shots on goal. Pick the corner or rifle the puck past the stick side.

Gamestar is the leading publisher of sports software. This is their first hockey product. Until now, they did not believe the microprocessing hardware was capable of supporting the type of simulation true sports fans demanded and deserved. Gamestar thinks you're going to agree that FaceOff! delivers.
