"Tedious one player mode, AWESOME multiplayer mode."
The Nintendo 64 and Hockey collide for one of the most explosive sports games of all time! Well, not of all time but close enough! Video game hockey has never looked better, as Gretzky and company face off for an epic battle!
It has a tedious one player mode that can last up to 120 games, not including the play offs or the stanley cup finals. It also has an AWESOME multiplayer mode that brings four player mode to a new dimension.
The one player mode in Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey is fun for the first 3 or 4 games. But it gets boring, and irritating after awhile. It takes up too much space on the memory card, and it ends up corrupted, or deleted. But once you get through the game, you'll feel satisfied that you beat a game that requires a high amount of patience and an attention span of a spider.
Although the one player mode is montonous, the multiplayer mode is astounding! Power check your friends to the world below and laugh as they have problems getting up! If you check them enough times, you'll get into a brawl that ends up in the face off zone of the loser! If you really want to make your friends made, take a power shot that lights their nets on fire! Or maybe you wanna embarass the goalie and show off your power by hitting a slap shot that knocks the goalie back into the boards!
There are other ways to have fun by yourself though, there is the interesting mode where you go one on one, or one on three against the computer. You have one player and the computer has three. Or visa verse. If you can handle the challenge, you'll be the greatest player of all time(sorta)! And there is the shoot out mode, which everyone knows.
To make things more interesting, you could search the net for the Debug Mode cheat. This lets you mess around with the players size, make them GIANTS, make them Super small, make them really wide! Just imagine small wide people! It's all in your imagination and the possiblities are endless!
Completing the one player mode doesn't get you anything, so forget about easter eggs. I think this game is best when you play with other player, but if you play by yourself, forget fun.
My Overall Rating for Wayne Gretzky's 3D Hockey: 5 out of 10
Reviewer's Rating: 2.5 - Playable
