Wayne Gretzky Hockey 2 is a top-down hockey game. The player participates in a match against either Canada or the USA. There are many options to change the match settings, e.g. the difficulty level, speed or the referee's behaviour. The editor offers the possibility to create new tactics or lineups as well as changing the abilities and names of the athletes. In contrast to most other sports games, the athletes are controlled indirectly: the player uses the input device to show the athlete where he should move. The active athlete can be changed.
This s basically the same game as its predecessor. The main additions are additional match options and a co-op playing mode.
A better sequel to Bethesda's classic Wayne Gretsky Hockey, WGH2 takes the innovative hockey sim to the next level with much sharper graphics, more player options, and even the ability to integrate seamlessly with Bethesda's die-hard hockey management sim Hockey League Simulator for more realistic coaching options.
Graphics is now isometric, and player animations are very smooth. Gone are the jagged players that recall Konami's Blade of Steel, and the new sound effects are excellent. Computer player seems to be even better than WGH at offensive play and penalty killing, and there are many more teams and players to choose from. If you love WGH, you'll be hopelessly addicted with WGH2. Be warned, though: the game is VERY fiddly on new systems, and due to unconventional video modes, you might not be able to run it at all, even in DOS mode.
