NHL Hitz has been reinvented, without leaving behind the edginess that has made Midway Sports the leader and only year-on-year successful publisher of extreme-style league licensed sports videogames. NHL Hitz: Pro will showcase authentic 5 on 5 gameplay with realistic rules, features and online play, while still providing its proprietary blend of lightning-fast adrenaline-style hockey action.
New Online Play: Head-to-head gameplay, online player rankings, and tournaments.
New 5-on-5 Gameplay: Every team, every player, and EVERY POSITION.
New Season Mode: All the teams, all the games, all the stadiums and all you can handle.
New Color Commentary: We're adding a second commentator to the booth, and he'll give you his take on the game, as well as the lowdown on some of your favorite NHL players.
Upgraded Franchise Mode: GM Mode option lets you build a Dynasty and manage every aspect of your team. Draft and trade players at your whim! Choose the offensive strategy and plot the perfect defensive scheme to prevent other teams from abusing your squad. After you create the perfect strategy, now determine who starts, and who gets left behind on the ice.
Re-tooled Hockey School Mode: NHL Hitz: Pro features an all-new and restructured Hockey School where the game player is taught and the skills tested. The NHL's all-time winningest head coach Scotty Bowman returns not only to coach you through NHL Hitz: Pro, but to congratulate the player for successes obtained through the Hockey School. Bowman will introduce a young NHL All-Star to tell you a little more about what is important in hockey, as well as provide a NHL Hitz: Pro game tip.
