NHL 94 Rewind Review-Yes Kids, this game still dominates

The world of video games welcomes next-generation consoles this week, but EA Sports has recently brought us an explosion from the past, or at least pre-ordering the latest version of EA’s long-running NHL series. ..When pre-ordering NHL 21Recently, access to one of the most beloved sports titles ever hit in the home video game console market has been granted. NHL 94..

If you’re not old enough to play this title when it was first released, we’re trying to explain its implications NHL 94 It’s hard work to have in the home video game console market, but I’ll try it. This was the sport title that just dominated my youth, and even if I wasn’t the biggest hockey fan of my youth NHL 94 And ’95 is the title we all played in college and we may have missed one or two classes for a late night session.

It was the first game in the NHL series that contained both official teams and official players in one box. This was great.Previous NHL 94 We had to deal with city names, there was no logo, and the combination of the two was just a great experience.

In addition to having a real team and real players NHL 94 We delivered memorable gems such as one-time, wraparound, body check on the bench, and hard hit packs that break the glass surrounding the ice. Most of these things sound common in today’s surrealistic sports title world, but certainly not in the early 90’s. To date, those who have experienced the game during their virgin voyage still refer to many of these, which gives credibility to the type of actual cultural phenomenon.

It was the early stages of a realistic sports title, with so many breakthroughs happening and happening quickly.Memories of ambulances driving on the field and passing through Madden without windows, Sega’s sports talk baseball and soccer real commentary, more than 54 real golfers and 8 real courses PGA Tour Golf III..

Memories come back in a hurry

After years really not giving NHL 94 Thinking, I sat down and started my first game for years. I used to play with emulators from time to time, but this was a different feeling. As soon as the screen popped up, I felt like a kid. After seeing the familiar opening sequence, I was greeted by my old friend Ron Barr.

Even in games that are 30 years old, the use of realistic organ music, team intros, and physics-based batting seems to be still successful today. The body that checks someone and the whistle that is blown produce the same satisfying feeling and sound as at that time. In addition, the ability to play with updated rosters, teams and logos helps to provide a retro experience with a contemporary feel. (Yes, it’s not the current roster NHL 94 List. )

NHL 94 It also offers a surprising number of options in-game and in settings. You can choose different durations, automatic goalkeepers, penalties on or off, line changes off, on, or manual. The game also allows the user to change the side art on the screen to the current look or the original look from the original release.

Not all NHL 94 It is a nostalgic glory because there is no season mode.As much fun as spending time on ice NHL 94, I’m still a little embarrassed about why NHL 95 Was not tabbed as a matching alternative option NHL 21.. As I said before NHL 95 It was basically the same game, but with a season mode.

That may not be a big deal, but for me I found an easy way to play the entire season and the playoffs of the Slowback series and enjoyed it as much as the current title. In addition to the lack of season mode, fans who have been waiting for this title since its announcement will be disappointed that Couchcorp is available, but online multiplayer is not.

My hope at this point is for EA to update the title so that they can play online or directly with the same team. Online mode will make this a long-lasting hit for me, even if season mode isn’t offered.

This lack of online play seems like a really big mistake. Re-releases and remasters have become so important ideas in today’s gaming world that I think we should have thought a bit more about this aspect, even if it’s only available to pre-orderers. NHL 21 In the first place. Anyway, if you include season mode or online mode, NHL 94 It was a complete eye-opening opportunity for a completely different generation and helped them better experience one of the best titles of the era.

After all NHL 94 It’s still a lot of fun to play, and it may be unsustainable, but I don’t even know if it was the intent from EA here. I had no problem finding the same amount of fun and simple gameplay as when I first dropped it. I’m sure it’s the same for many.

As I mentioned before, NHL 94 Initially only available to pre-ordered people NHL 21, But the EA says it may offer anyone the opportunity to download the game at a later date. My guess is that it happens at some point after the person who first pre-ordered the game was given enough time to get the most out of the pre-order bonus. Therefore, the EA avoids backlash from pre-ordered people. NHL 94 It will be available to everyone else (perhaps at a price). No date or price is specified at this time, NHL94 Rewind It will be released for everyone else at some point during the holiday season. NHL 21..

Finally, I know that the relationship between EA and Nintendo isn’t always the best, but I can’t find a way to get it, especially when it comes to sports games. NHL 94 If you switch on at this point, it feels like a crime against humanity. If the game was for switches NHL 94 It is one.
