------------------------------------------------------
 a- Introduction
------------------------------------------------------


Hey, I know what you're thinking. Why would someone write a FAQ on a Sports game. I really
can't answer this question ^_^. I borrowed this game from a friend, and I guess I liked it
because I was playing it like I couldn't stop. I realized that there were no FAQs for this
game, and I was bored, so I decided to write it. The bulk of this FAQ is basically the
Instruction Manual, or what they call the "Training" Manual. It's meant mostly for those that
rented the game or bought a used game that didn't come with the instruction manual. Either
way, I hope you enjoy it. I took a lot of time with that ASCII art at the top, no matter
how crappy you think it looks, I like it. Well, go on and enjoy this FAQ!

                                                                          -- R. K. Raja




------------------------------------------------------
 b- Version History
------------------------------------------------------


Version 1.0 - January 25, 2002 - The first version of the FAQ. I doubt I will make any revisions
to it but there is a possibility if I find something new and/or if I'm really bored.





------------------------------------------------------
 c- Legal Issues
------------------------------------------------------


Yeah, I really don't think anyone would waste there time trying to steal it for some strange
reason, but there are some weird wackos out there. Follow the rules and you'll be set for life.

come in handy when you want to save your game data.

Each time you start NHL Hitz 20-02 on your Xbox, the game will read the Xbox hard disk
and load your saved settings and saved teams. This saves you from having to go
through the menus to adjust the settings to your liking each time you want to play
the game.

NHL Hitz 20-02 also lets you create teams and players, so you'll definitely want to save
that information, especially if you've accumulated stats, as well as credits you'll
use to make purchases in the Hockey Shop. (More info on these options later).

Save Settings -

next time you play.

Delete User -
There may be a time you need to make some space or delete a user name you no longer use.
Delete unused user names with this option.

Auto Saving -
Use this option to automatically have NHL Hitz 20-02 save your data to the hard disk.
Each time the game auto-saves your data, a prompt will be displayed, warning you
not to interrupt the saving process. If you disable Autosave, you'll have to manually
save your data using the Save Settings option.



------------------------------------------------------

NHL and Fantasy teams to win the coveted Midway Cup.

and get the next scheduled game underway.

To create a "New Team," go to the Customize Team Screen. (More info next section.)

your friends and polish your skills.

like to use as a Hot Spot.

Trade -
If you have enough Attribute Points, this option allows you to select the players that

you can create a new player using available Attribute Points.

your Attribute Points. You're giving 60 Attribute Points to work with initially,

which player. You can change the default indicator by selecting Player Name, Player
Number, or User Name. The User Name option might be good when you have a large number

Press the D-pad Left or Right to make your choice.

The number of controllers connected to the game console are displayed between the Home

"locked" player throughout the game.




------------------------------------------------------
 h- On The Ice
------------------------------------------------------


Pause Options Menu:
At anytime during the game, press the Start button to pause the game and display the
Pause Menu. It contains the standard game options to make adjustments to your
current game.
Options displayed in grey are not available during a game.


The Face-Off -
Possession is everything, so you'll want to win as many face-offs as possible. As
you're face-to-face with your opponent, press the A button, X button, or the B button.
They will each do something different during the face-off. Whether you win or lose
is based on the button your opponent selects.

Basically, the A button beats the B button, the B button beats the X button and the
X button beats the A button. If you both press the same button, the winner is
determined by who pressed the button first. Simple enough?


Passing -
No brainer, huh? Well, you'll find out that every pass doesn't find its destination.
Look for open lanes to avoid having the puck stolen.


Checking -
If you don't have the puck, a nice hard Check could do the trick. Press the X button for
a Stick Check or the B button for a nice Body Check.


The One-Timer -
When executed correctly, this is quite possible the most difficult shot for NHL goalies to
stop. With a teammate open and rushing (or near) the net, press the Pass buttot, the n
quickly press the Shoot button to execute a one-timer. You can perform this shot from
anywhere on the ice but shooting closer to the net will give you a better chance to
score.


Blocking Shots -
Take one for the team! Lay down or block an incoming shot by pressing the X button
when a player is shooting a puck toward your net of passing.


Fighting -
It's part of the game! Yes, not everyone likes to see it, but we sure do! Every once in a
while, you'll find yourself squaring off against an opponent. Controls quickly flash on-screen
before the first starts to refresh your memory. They may not be long enough for you, so
we'll list the controls here:

         Light Punch........A Button
         Grab...............B Button
         Heavy Punch........X Button
         Block..............Y Button
         Dodge..............D-pad Left or Right

Remember, if your player loses a fight, he's out for the rest of the game.


On Fire -
Success has it's rewards. When you catch fire, all your attributes will increase
slightly, so your success rate for scoring goals will also increase. You'll know
your player is On Fire when flames and smoke trail him as he skates down the ice.

A single player can become On Fire by scoring three goals in a game. To
extinguish an opponent while he's On Fire, score a goal or beat him in a fight.
Remember, a single player On Fire should shooting the puck. Take advantage of his
increased chances to score.


Team Fire -
An entire team can catch on fire when you score three consecutive goals
(uninterrupted) in a row via a One-Timer. At this point, any player on
your team has a huge advantage over their opponent. The opposing
team must score a one-timer to extinguish Team Fire.


Turbo -
Anyone who has played video games in the past knows the importance of Turbo. Use it
sparingly, though. It diminishes fast, and you'll always want to have SOME turbo
ready for use as the game progesses.


Deke-Spin/Guard Puck -
Every player on the ice is going to be hitting hard to get possession of that puck,
so you'll need some moves to avoid hits. Try the Y button to perform a Deke-Spin
move to avoid hits or press the B button to guard the puck ahgainst a Poke Check.


Game Tipz-
The load screens in NHL Hitz offer some helpful hints and tips for playing the
game. Keep your eyes out for them.




------------------------------------------------------

Take on the ultimate NHL Hitz challenge. Beat all 50 NHL teams to win the Midway Cup! You
may play single-player versus the computer or a multi-player cooperatively game versus
the computer. (You can not compete against a friend in multi-player Franchise Mode.)

To begin playing in Franchise Mode, you must first create a new team. (Users can
maintain up to nine franchises at a time.)

This "franchise" starts out with a roster of basic players. Custom players may be
customized with names, body attributes, and skill attributes. Names can be any word
up to ten characters long. Body attributes describe the physical appearances of players
and don't cost any points. Skill attributes describe the playing abilities of the
players and are limited only by the total number of attribute points the team has.

Each new team consists of six skaters and one goalie with attribute ratings of five in
each of the six attributes categories. Now teams also have 60 attribute points free
of users to customize their players. Attribute points can be added to or taken away
from any players' categories (anywhere between a minimum rating of one and a maximum
rating of 20).

You may also use attribute points to trade in custom players for NHL players. NHL players
come ata steep cost because of their relatively high skill ratings. Users can't edit
the skill attribute ratings of NHL players.


Warning: Trading away a custom player for an NHL player will make the custom player
         unnavailable forever.


Winning Franchise Mode GamesL
The franchise is awarded six attribute points for each win. Winning the Midway Cup bu
winning all 50 games deposits 5000 credits in the bank to spend in the Hockey Shop.
A screen following the 50th win explains this reward and what they can do with it.

How Trivia Points Work In Franchise Mode:
Attribute points are awarded if at least one player answers correctly.

               Difficulty       Points
                  Easy            1
                 Medium           2
                  Hard            3

 k- Substitutions, Statistics, and Trivia
------------------------------------------------------


Period Stats -
Between periods and the end of the game, a statistics screen will appear. The Game
User Stats Screen displays cumulative stats from the previous period(s). Each user's
stats are displayed using they're assigned name or an abbreviated NHL team name.

Substitutions -
Between periods, you'll have an opportunity to substitute one or all players. You won't
be able to change teams, so you'll have to choose players from your current team.
At the Substitution Screen, press the D-pad Left or Right to cycle through the available
players, then press theA button. If needed, repeat this process for all players.

Final Game Stats -
Once the game has ended, the Game Stats Screen is displayed. It displays the breakdown
of final stats for the game. A final rundown of the Game User Stats Screen will follow.

Trivia -
In Exhibition and Championship Mode, you can play Trivia after viewing the Statistics
screens to accumulate credits. Use these credits in the Hockey Shop to obtain Fantasy
Arenas, teams, etc.
In Franchise Mode, answering Trivia Questions correctly awards Attribute Points. There
points can be used to increase your "Custom Player" attributes or "Trade" for real
NHL Players.

Where To Enter The Codes:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

When all of the players have been selected (and all of the players have pressed the
A button), the Match-Up Screen will appear.

The Matchup Screen displays the names and logos of the two comparing teams. At the top
and/or bottom portion of the screen, you'll see one set of code icons (one for a 1 player
game, two sets for a 2 player game, etc).

You can enter codes by pressing the X button (first icon), the Y button (second icon),
or the B button (third icon). When the icons you want are displayed, press the D-pad
Up, Down, Left, or Right to enable the code.

To input more than one code, repeat the process. The codes you entered first will flash
and remain on-screen. At this point, you can enter another code before the game starts.
This screen appears only for a short period of time, so you'll have to be quick to
input multiple codes (not all combinations will enable codes).


-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
How To Find Codes:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

After scoring a goal, the player that scored the goal will skate around the rink. If
you look closely at the crowd, they will hold signs indicating the code numbers. They
are very easy to see in Replay mode.

All of these hints are exlusive with rights to GameWinners at http://www.gamewinners.com
and its contributors. I abosuletly take no credit whatsoever for these hints, but I
have slightly altered them to better fit this FAQ.


Easy Credits -
Play a game with the difficulty starting at the rookie setting. Before the game ends and
displays your total stats, enter the pause menu and change the difficulty to All-Star. You
will now get All-Star credits which can be used to buy things.


Easy Goals -
When creating a team, make one player left handed. When picking your hot spot, make it on the
right faceoff circle. When playing a game enable the "Show the team's hot spot" code, put the
left-handed player as your defense, win the faceoff, and get it to your defender. Skate up and
shoot from where the hot spot is located. You will make it in 9 out of 10 times.
Hint contributed by Garrett Casey at GameWinners.com.

Go around your opponent's net and pass the puck to the player that is on the other side of the
net. Pass it to him, and shoot immediately. The goalie will not be on that side, so it is easier
to score.
Hint contributed by SStreetFighter0 at GameWinners.com.

When on one side of the net, cross over to the other side. When you reach the other post, shoot
a slapshot or a normal shot.
Hint contributed by LoGiBeAr and MuShRoOm at GameWinners.com.


Easy Fights -
When playing the game with a friend, check the CPU player and not the one that your friend is
controlling. This may get you into a fight.
Hint contributed by SStreetFighter0 at GameWinners.com.

More Skill Competition Levels -
Successfully complete all of the skills in a competition level to unlock an additional level.


Get Faceoffs -
Faceoffs are somewhat like a Paper, Rock, Scissors game, where one move beats another. In the game, A
is similar to Paper, B is similar to Rock, and Square is similar to Scissors -- A beats B, B beats X,
and X beats A. You can tell what the other person does by watching their stick. When they press A,
their stick will twitch. When they press B, their hand will come off of the back of the stick. When
they press X, they will hold their stick up high.


Crowd Sounds -
Press White during a game to make the crowd cheer. Press Black to make the crowd boo.
Hint contributed by Jerry N at GameWinners.com.


Better Created Team -
Create six players and remove all of the last three players' experience points. Give them to the first
three players. That should give the first three players all the experience they need.
