    You can have a rink in your backyard in the winter months in some places. Or you can play on a frozen lake.

    If anything, at least DS has it`s own iteration of hockey at last. Backyard Hockey 2005 on PC was pretty ok, though so maybe this is not so bad.

    I just loaded it up. Its bad. The game play is horribly boring and the blocky graphics are atrocious.

    NHL '94 kicks this game's ass in so many ways it is not funny.

    Still no pro wrestling. 2-1/2 years after launch, and to think GBA had the legendary Fire Pro almost immediately.

    I was hoping this would be good. I like hockey games.

    Especially Mario Party Hockey. [​IMG]

    yeah, this game is pretty bad. i wanted it to be good... after testing backyard basketball my hopes for this release went down hill... and this release confirms that expectation. this is just really poorly made game... guess NHL 94 via SNES emu is the only hockey on DS to consider.

    So, I take it this is more like Backyard Hoc-tooie. Is that right?

    And I agree with Chief_Second, we need a good boxing game. I can think of one real quick......Punch-Out! The Compilation.

    A good wrestler would be nice too. And not one with a bunch of touchscreen retardation either.

    The wrestling game is strange. Sort of like turn-based Elite Beat Agents in a way. [​IMG]

    Too bad about this. Two full calender years since the last NHL release on any Nintendo platform, NHL 2006 for Gamecube in September 2005, and they flub it? Nooo...
