EA SPORTS introduces an all-new video game experience for action and sports gamers in the newest iteration to its award-winning NHL Hockey Series. NHL 2000 adds dedicated 'big hit' and 'big deke' buttons to its in-depth gameplay. The game will keep hard-core hockey and sports gamers alike satisfied with a full dynasty mode. A faster, more playable framerate gives you better control. Strategic artificial intelligence tests your gameplay savvy, while arcade-like PSX features add extra fun to the game. Two-button mode makes it easy for any player to pick up the game and enjoy it immediately, while the depth of play presents a challenge for even the most experienced NHL fan.
