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.
