NHL 2002 readies for shipment
It has been announced by Electronic Arts that they will be shipping NHL 2002 for the PS2 sometime this week. Many added features have been showcased in this updated version, as the now talked about breakaway cam has been mentioned, which follows the player during a one-on-one situation against the goalie. Also, included in the game is a revamped soundtrack including Barenaked Ladies, which also gives the option to create band members to stick on a team of your choice.
"Our objective with NHL 2002 was to stretch the boundaries, pushing for the ultimate in both realism and entertainment value from the moment the players leave the locker room until the final horn,'' said Kevin Wilkinson, senior producer of NHL 2002. "We believe we've done that through a series of new innovations and enhancements, including breakaway cam, new lighting and camera angles, customized celebrations, user-controlled saucer passes, manual dekes, exciting gameplay, enhanced graphics, and other added features.'
