"Bethesda Softworks has been working on this game for almost two years. Their level of commitment and the desire to "get it right" is what impressed me enough to become involved. While I may not be an expert on computers, I do know a little bit about hockey, and with this game, you'll feel like you're actually lacing up and stepping onto the ice. It's also a lot of fun to play and a great way to learn about some of the finer points of hockey." - Wayne Gretzky.
