Its friendly, arcade-style hockey action should be familiar to fans, but this year's version of Backyard Hockey has a new look. The game is presented in 3D for the first time in this "2005" edition. As in other Backyard releases, gamers play light-hearted versions of popular sports, as one of the "Backyard Kids" characters or as a "kid version" of an actual pro athlete. Backyard Hockey 2005 features all 30 NHL teams, and playable kid versions of real-life all-stars Martin Brodeur, Roman Cechmanek, Marian Gaborik, Ilya Kovalchuck, Paul Kariya, Brian Leetch, Nicklas Lidstrom, Mike Modano, Mats Sundin, and Joe Thornton. There are nine different rinks, mini-games for two players, and three modes of play: "Quick Game," "Single," or "Season." ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
