WGH2 takes the innovative hockey sim series to the next level with much sharper graphics, more player options, and even the ability to integrate seamlessly with Bethesda's own die-hard hockey management sim Hockey League Simulator for more realistic coaching options. |
Graphics are now isometric, and player animations very smooth. Gone are the jagged edges that recalled Konami's Blade of Steel, and the new sound effects are excellent. The computer seems to be even better than WGH at offensive play and penalty killing, and there are many more teams and players to choose from. If you love WGH, you'll be hopelessly addicted with WGH2. Be warned, though: the game is VERY fiddly on new systems, and due to unconventional video modes, you might not be able to run it at all, even in DOS mode.
