Old Time Hockey
Top Critic Average
The greatest thing about Old-Time Hockey is just how well-suited it is for whatever you might want to do outside of the usual EA Sports NHL fare – V7 Entertainment leaves it to EA to do what EA does best, while tailoring its own offering to everyone else.
Old Time Hockey is not an ultra-realistic hockey sim, and it’s not trying to be.
Old Time Hockey is great fun — a reason to invite a friend over
Old Time Hockey brings back the nostalgia of old hockey games that I played with my dad growing up & I couldn't ask for anything more.
Its the old school hockey game you need in your life right now!
While, unpolished, Old Time Hockey offers a lot for fans looking for an experience outside of NHL.
It has the recipe for success in the indie sports market, and could become one of the hits of 2017.
Old Time Hockey is just that--an homage to the 90's era of hockey video games--with NHL '94 being its closest comparison. It's a bit rough around the edges, but it honors hockey games of yesteryear, and should be played by us aging gamers who grew up in the 8 and 16-bit eras of gaming.
Overall, Old Time Hockey does need some polish in terms of play. Also, we wish there was an online mode so people could match up all over the world. The controls have that retro feel and the gameplay is easy for anyone to pick up. Plus, you can play on the couch with friends and drink while you’re at it. The price is right for this game though coming in at $11.99 it is a pretty good deal.
As long as you're not expecting a simulation heavy, photo-realistic experience, you should find something to enjoy in Old Time Hockey.
