    Yay! First to post!!
    Doesn't look too interesting, I think I'll get it anyway. It'll go good with the Namco Museum.

    worst hockey title for GBA yet. Here's my main reason why.

    3 on 3 hockey + very low action/slow playing game play = boredom.

    and why does a slap from the point have a better chance of going in then a perfectly exceuted one timer?

    and i'm not very fond of the controls.

    overall... it's just another backyard game that doesn't compare to the sucess backyard football, my favorite GBA football title.

    ps:cr@ck1ne... I'm in Canada... i know people with rinks in their backyard... hell, our local yard/hardware (canadian tire) store sells ice rink liners for back yards... not NHL sized.. but still... it's a fair size sheet of ice you get. good enough to play a hockey shoot out.

    ... I suppose they would play on the streets and break their iceskates... not
    They would wear rollerblades... and I suppose this would be more "thuggish" than normal hockey
    but seriously, who would wanna play hockey in their backyard...

    Hockey = Canada... that's a simple equation ;=)

    That's poor about this game... I love hockey games but three on three is pooky unless you do it with a couple of friend in your real backyard rink. I wonder if there ever gonna be a nhl game on gba able to match up with EA or Seag.

    3 on 3 hockey can be good... like NHL Hits style hockey (even though i'm not a fan of the GBA version, but a proper verson of hitz)... number 1 reason it works... fast paced game play... exactly what this title lacks.

    and i agree with the comment we need a new/better NHL game. everyone should flood emails to suggestions@ea.com and request a brand new (new engine, new graphics, etc) NHL title for GBA. cause I know they can do better then three-quarter assed (it's still a pretty good game NHL 2002 in my opinion, havin lots of fun with it) rehashing a 16-bit remake.

    You still play nhl2002? Yeah... me too... but more because
    1) nhl2003 sucked badly
    2) nhl2004 crashes on all my PCs I have
    EDIT: 3) NHL2002 ROCKS!!!
