Play the classic game of hockey with Ice Hockey Heroes. In this game you play the traditional three periods of hockey. Each period lasts a minute and thirty seconds, and at the end of the three periods, whoever has the highest points wins the match. When you start the first period, you will see a bar with a small green square sliding across the bar. If you can stop the green square in the middle of the bar, you will win the puck. If you don't stop the green square in the middle of the bar, then your opponent wins the puck. The gameplay is really nice in this game; to pass the puck and change players you press the z key. To shoot the puck and perform a check you press the x key. The arrow keys control your movement on the ice. If you hold the x key you could charge up your shot, and this also gives you a better chance of getting a goal. The animations are really good in this game; when you check someone, you see a boom and a bang flash on the screen. Also, you see a crack come onto the ice. The commentary is pretty unique too; when you do a check, you hear a person say "He's down," and "Next time keep your head up". When you take a shot, you hear phrases like "Taking the slap shot." Sometimes when you perform a check, you get into a fight with your opponent, and you have to repeatedly press the x key to drain his power to win the fight. Ice Hockey Heroes is a really intense hockey game with great animations and gameplay, and I would play this game over and over again.
