NHL 2004 reviews and comments

The first game from the NHL series that I played.

So, the first revolutionary innovation of «NHL 2004» is «Bruise Control», as for sports simulators (at least, PC versions), minor hooks, pushes, stick lifts, and other subtle manifestations of real hockey are a novelty.

The second major innovation is the «Dynasty Mode». A new mode is included, so to speak, in addition, without displacing anything from the old set. Hence the strong decision to completely bankrupt the club's base, training rooms, coaching staff, scouting institute. Ten departments in total, divided into two groups: Facilities and Staff (five in each). The goal of «Dynasty Mode» is to restore the destroyed economy. For good performance, we will receive upgrade points and invest them in our beloved club.

There is evident development in the control system, expressed by two elements. The first is a new passing system (although I hardly felt this moment) and in general the features of the game engine: one-touch shots, the ability to stick the stick between the goalie's pads and push the puck into the net, interceptions of airborne pucks, etc. The second is the Shift key, which activates additional functions: deceptive shots, new dekes, etc.

I recommend to try it.
