Editors' reviewAlthough we have some problems with this program's presentation, the fact that it costs nothing gives it a boost. According to the developer, WildLands Hockey puts polars bears and elks out on the ice and in front of the puck--but since the game gives the user a bird's-eye view of the rink and the tiny players, we can't tell what kind of creatures are actually playing hockey. The puck is equally small, so it can often be tough to maneuver your two players and accurately gauge shots. WildLands Hockey lets you play against the computer or you can square off against a friend or online opponent. The game allows you to reconfigure the key controls to your liking and turn off the rather mundane sound effects. Ordinarily, this game would receive a lower rating, but since it is freeware, we can be a bit more forgiving about its flaws. Nevertheless, WildLands Hockey is still probably best when played sparingly.
WildLands Hockey is a one-on-one arcade-style hockey game with a polar bear between the pipes and an elk on the ice on each team. Single-player to network-multiplayer action is available. WilldLands Hockey is based on the arcade hockey games of the '80s with a few modern conveniences. WildLands Hockey is rated for everyone.
