If you like the sport of hockey, this may be the game for you. If you like brutal, over-the-top mayhem and violence, this game may also be the one for you. If you don't like either of these, go put on a pot of tea! Confused? Well, it's time to strap on the skates and grab your chainsaw for Mutant League Hockey on the Genesis. You might never look at the sport in quite the same way again!
Featuring crazy, on-ice antics and bone-crunching (literally!) hits, this game will put new meaning to the phrase "unnecessary roughness." The goal of Mutant League Hockey isn't just to win the game, it's to win the war! You will have a variable armory of weapons to use against your mutant foes as you try and claim the crown of champion. Don't like how your opponent is jawing with you and agitating you whenever you go in for a shot? How about teaching him a lesson with a giant axe or maybe a steel pipe? Or maybe you'll just level him with a sucker-punch as you go down the ice - it's up to you!
Don't worry about the consequences: the referee often turns a blind-eye to your mutant-bashing action! So you can cheat and use any means possible to win the game. Is the goalie being a pest or not letting in any shots? How about firing an exploding puck his way? Also, if your goalie isn't playing the way he should, you can "dispose" and then replace him with a demon net, which stops most everything and can even hurt players. Bribing the referee is possible as well and can suddenly result in penalties called in your favor.
Don't be surprised to see your opponents get charged with "making slushies" or "losing a fight." Each rink is also unique in its own way as well. You will have to watch out for ice pits and mines in some arenas, while others will have divots and shark attacks! Another unique feature is that you can win by making the other team have too many casualties! Just watch as the body count rises and bloody, mutant corpses litter the arena!
The game has several modes of "playhem" for you to enjoy. You can go against a friend in a single, one-on-one match or you can take your own battles into the season mode. To moderate the action, there are several options like difficulty and bloodiness. If you think you're ready, how about taking on the Galaxy Aces in the playoffs? Only those who wield the biggest weapons and have the dirtiest team will win! ~ Glenn Wigmore, All Game Guide
