NHL 98 for Sony PlayStation 1 (PS1)
NHL '98 has an array of features that you would expect from an EA Sports title. All 26 NHL teams from 1998 are in NHL '98, along with 18 international teams and two division All-Star rosters. EA uses the real NHL players and stadiums as well, resulting in the ultimate NHL experience. Each game starts off realistically enough, with the last few notes of the National Anthem being played (either American or Canadian, depending on which side of the border your team is from), and the game contains an amazing amount of play-by-play commentary. NHL coach Marc Crawford developed the plays, so you can expect a ton of realistic plays you can execute. You can also change your offensive and defensive strategies during the game with the press of a button. The players have received a bit of a graphical overhaul, so expect even more up-close-and-personal looks at some of the NHL's pretty boys and ugly thugs. You can also take on up to eight friends in the Multiplayer mode.
