    1. INTRODUCTION 
    This game is my favourite game by far.With it's big body checks to
    scoring the winning goal in overtime, this game has it all! 
    I haven't found many things wrong with this game only positives. With
    all of it's options like 1-8 players, vibration and 
    analog stearing I highly recommend you go out and buy it if you haven't
    already! Lest just hope NHL '2000 is even 
    better some how! Well thats that, hope you enjoy this mini FAQ on NHL
    '99! 
    
    2. GAMES 
    NHL '99 has heps of game options. Exhabition games, season, playoffs,
    tounament, shoot-out and coaching drills. 
    
    Exhabition. 
    This option is just a single game which you can pick any team. You can
    have the NHL Championship teams against 
    Countries or the North American All-Stars, World All-Stars, Eastern
    Conference, Western Conference, EA Blades, 
    EA Storm teams. This  is the best game for starters or when you just
    want a quick game before you go out. At the end of 
    the game you can have a rematch if you want revenge or if you want to
    belt them even more. 
    
    Season. 
    To play this option you really need a memory card. You can play the
    1998/99 regular National Hockey League or make 
    your own custom season. In the custom season you can choose from 4-27
    teams. To have an all-star game in the season 
    you must have 8 or more teams. You can also choose to have a short or
    long season. If you have a long season you will 
    have a trade dead-line. This happens on March 22 1999. 
    
    Playoffs. 
    If you want to skip the season and go straight through to the main end
    of the year, fine this option allows you to go and pick 
    any NHL team and battle it out for the Stanley Cup. You can choose the
    best of 1-7 games. Also the expansion draft is 
    an option to have it on or not. 
    
    Shootout. 
    This mode allows you to choose 2 teams for a shoot-out game. It's good
    for practising for the real game or practising 
    one-on-one with the goalie. You also get to select your line-up which is
    5 players and 1 goalie. In this mode you also get 
    a chance to have a rematch. 
    
    Tournament. 
    In this mode you can choose if you want a round-robin game. Also you can
    choose  8-12 teams and 1-4 rounds 
    (only if it is a round-robin). The expansion draft is again also an
    option. You can choose teams from all NHL teams or 
    all of the counties. It is a fun game type to play when you can match up
    regular NHL teams against the Counties and the 
    same player against himself. 
    
    Coaching Drills. 
    This the place to go when you are just learning about the game. The
    strategies are by Marc Crawford. You can have a go at 
    many situations that you would be in a game. Powerplay, shorthanded,
    one-on-one with the goalie or even strength. It's 
    just a al-round great place for beginners or if you just want to sharpen
    up on your skills. 
    
    3. LEVELS 
    Beginner: Great mode to learn on or when your hungry for goals. 
    Rookie: I bit harder than beginner but still a good place to begin. 
    Pro: This is when competion begins. Pretty hard at start but you should
    soon conquer it. 
    All-Star: The hardest mode of all. This it face it or leave it. As good
    as it gets for competion.
