» » Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey (1996)

Short summary

As opposed to the more realistic ice hockey gameplay seen in other games, Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey features arcade-style gameplay. It features high-scoring games and over-the-top fights.

One of the first 3D games launched with the Nintendo 64.

Two modes could be played: Arcade or Simulation. Arcade is 3 on 3 while Simulation is 5 on 5 with penalties. Penalties can be turned on or off for both modes.

Supports up to 4 players.

In arcade mode, fights can break out. The game turns into a fighting game somewhat similar to a crappy version of Street Fighter. With the simple attacks of Hard Punch, Quick Jab, Grab and Punch, and Uppercut, they're always simple 1 on 1 fights. The penalty for fighting is five minutes for each player, regardless of who wins or starts it.

Arcade elements were included in the game, such as firing a puck with a flame, turbo boost, and goalkeepers turning into brick walls.
