NHL 2002 builds on the audio-visual punch and smooth gameplay of NHL 2001. You'll see players' facial expressions and gestures, crisp reflections off the ice and the red glare of the goal light. A new card-based rewards system allows you to earn new moves, cheats, and special abilities. The new GameStory feature allows you to live the ultimate NHL hero fantasy, following a larger-than-life cinematic plot with rich audio-visual elements. Crowd participation also affects gameplay, as your fans cheer and fire you up, or hush at your jaw-dropping plays. A 10-season Franchise mode is also new to the 2002 installment. NHL 2002 is for one or two players, or up to eight players with the Multitap.
