5.0 out of 5 stars
Fingers Crossed its as good as the net version!!!!, 28 Jan 2004
well i've avidly played this title on the internet now for a few years... and as both a keen fan of both the Championship manager series and Ice hockey was truly gobsmacked when i heard that this title was being released on a PC format. As can be expected this will be a classic game for all Hockey fans out there, and something that my hockey loving friends both sides of the pond have been screaming out for, for years.
The Game is based around you as the manager of the club. You have to make every day decision in the running of it, transfer negotiation, trades, hiring and firing of coaches and dealings with the press. The inclusion i've heard of a 2d Match engine - similar to that on CM4 gives managers the opportunity to see how long lines are out on the ice for, setup plays for both Powerplay and Penatly kill situations and also generally call a game as it is being played out infront of your very own eyes, at varying match speeds..
I've enjoyed the game on the net and just hope that the creators to it as much justice as they did the CM series. take a trial run on fhockey.com, and trust me fingers crossed this game could be the beginning of something big!!!!
