NHL Slapshot Wii Game

It would be easy to dismiss NHL Slapshot as a silly kids game sight unseen. It's for the Wii. It comes with a fake plastic hockey stick to stick your Wiimote in. Part of the game involves playing 3 on 3 pee-wee hockey. But don't be so quick to judge. According to our previewer Harold Goldberg, Slapshot is pretty great... even the fake hockey stick adds to the experience.

"Overall, this is not just another Wii sports game for kids only. The graphics pop with 60 frames a second; you see reflections in the ice, along with ice spraying as you skate. Moreover, it’s fun to see your character grow and morph from a kid with cage-type helmet to an adult behemoth who puts fear in the eyes of opponents. And with a varied soundtrack that includes The Ramones, The Black Keys and Foxy Shazam, you’ll be tapping your toes as you skate. Too bad about the lack of online play, though."

Check out the rest of our NHL Slapshot preview, and try not to pre-judge in the future.
