NHL 99 for Sony PlayStation 1 (PS1)
Electronic Arts' hockey series returns to PlayStation with new motion-captured animations from actual NHL athletes, a beginner's difficulty setting, on-the-fly play calling strategies, player hot and cold streaks, and revamped goalie artificial intelligence. Play an exhibition game, embark on a full season, jump to the playoffs, enter a tournament, or test your agility in a shootout. You can also work on perfecting your skills during Marc Crawford's coaching drills. Twenty-seven NHL teams, including the Nashville Predators, are in the game, along with 3D arenas sporting such details as banners, retired jerseys, and luxury boxes. Eighteen international teams, with their distinct rink sizes and rules of play, are also available. Jim Hughson and Daryl Reaugh reprise their play-by-play and color commentary duties from NHL 98. A memory card is required to save statistics, user records, line changes, and configuration options.
