Brett Hull Hockey 95 was made in 1994 by Radical Entertainment and published by Accolade for Nintendo, and Sega systems. Due to its huge success it was also launched for PC in 1995. The sales of the PC release resulted in two sequels, none of which matched the original.
For me Brett Hull Hockey 95 is one of the best hockey games ever made for PC. The graphics are very good, and the game-play is fantastic.
But now let's talk about the game. Starting with the game-play options, there are different modes to choose from, such as Exhibition (good introduction), Half Season (half of the championship), Full Season, Play-Offs mode (only the final part of the season) and last but not least, All Star (which you should play only when you become an expert).
You will be surprised by the animations and outstanding controls, especially if you have a gamepad to play with. It features over 500 real names of NHL professional players, thanks to the license given by NHL representatives. Each player has his own personal skating ability, strength, aggressiveness, shot accuracy and shot power. Brett Hull Hockey 95 also features fights, just like any real hockey match does, and with a very realistic fighting model. You can also view replays of the best plays.
Up to 4 players for offensive and defensive plays can be chosen, and you should always keep an eye on your opponent tactics.
Finally, if that wasn't enough, the matches are commented by Al Michaels, one of the best sports commentators of all times.
So, in conclusion, this game deserves nothing less than 5 shiny stars.
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier. If Abandonia is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online for another year. Please help us forget fundraising and get back to Abandonia.
