NHL Hitz PreviewNHL Hitz has been previewed over at the Electric Playground. The title which is currently in production by Canadian developers, Black Box Games, is slated for a fall release on both the Xbox and the PS2. Heres a bit from the preview.
Black Box has the look and feel of the NHL game down, with incredible graphics and an on-fire mode that was first seen in the NBA Jam series of basketball games. The game will also offer up a big hit mode that will actually reward you for checking your opponent through the glass.Take that big long stick.. and..and uhmm.. click here for the rest.
Thats not all. The slap shots go flying off of your stick at 125 mph, and actually give you the feeling that they will take your head off if you dont duck.
"NHL Hitz 20-02 will set the standard for hockey videogames on the next-generation platforms," said Helene Sheeler, vice president of marketing, Midway. "NHL Hitz 20-02 has a great mix of frenetic gameplay, hockey realism and revolutionary features."
