This game is what you might call “just another hockey game”. WRONG. ACE-HOCKEY is not just another hockey game. It is not even a hockey game. In this game you are supposed to ACE through two of the hardest challenges of hockey.
1- Beating the goalie
2- Target plates
In this game, you have the option of practicing and learning, simply by choosing to practice in the category of your choice and when you feel comfortable take on the goalie or the targets. Is that it? No, of course not. In each section, time is your opponent, so score as fast as you can before the time is up. But this is it right? Nope. Actually, the goalies change as you progress in the game and each new goalie is certainly better than the one before (accuracy, reflex…). And in targeting you face different types of targets (blinking, moving, random popups…).
Are we done? Not quite yet. Let’s say you went on and scored a whole bunch of points and finally the game is over. At this time, you can submit your new score online via “OpenFeint” system, and compare yourself with other players, and even brag about your achievement on Twitter or Facebook.
Ok then, stop reading and start playing.
