Game Review

NHL Hockey '94 is an ice hockey game developed and published by EA Sports in 1993 for the Genesis, DOS, Super NES, and Sega CD.

EA Sports, a spin-off from Electronic Arts that requires no introduction, is responsible for some of the most important sports game sagas, such as FIFA, NBA Live and Madden NFL. On the other hand, NHL '94 the third installment of the NHL series and the first available for DOS and Sega CD. Also, this hockey game franchise that launches an installment per year, today is still in force.

The title retained several features of the previous NHL entries, such as the vertical camera angle or the 2D modeling of the players. The new edition received new animations and some improvements. Also, the player can choose to play an Exhibition Game, the Stanley Cup Playoffs: Single Game Series, the Stanley Cup Playoffs: Best of Seven Series, or the Shootout Mini-Game. On the other hand, this entry now features the option of saving records.

Regarding the music, EA Sports added several organ tracks characteristic of certain teams in the game. You can hear them at the beginning of each match, in the middle of the game, or at the moment when a goal is scored. The sound effects of the game are then generally caused by the hockey stick, screaming players, and the general audience. All of this takes on greater relevance than in other titles because the background music is not present in the matches.

The reviews of the title were very positive. The most recurrent compliment to the game is the realism that it possessed, describing it as an immersive experience with a very well designed environment. For this and much more, NHL Hockey '94 is the perfect title for someone to get to know the roots of this franchise and play a few fun games in the process.
