Well thats that, hope you enjoy this mini FAQ on NHL '99! 2. GAMES NHL '99 has heps of game options. Exhabition games, season, playoffs, tounament, shoot-out and coaching drills. Exhabition. This option is just a single game which you can pick any team. You can have the NHL Championship teams against Countries or the North American All-Stars, World All-Stars, Eastern Conference, Western Conference, EA Blades, EA Storm teams. This is the best game for starters or when you just want a quick game before you go out. At the end of the game you can have a rematch if you want revenge or if you want to belt them even more. Season. To play this option you really need a memory card. You can play the 1998/99 regular National Hockey League or make your own custom season. In the custom season you can choose from 4-27 teams. To have an all-star game in the season you must have 8 or more teams. You can also choose to have a short or long season. If you have a long season you will have a trade dead-line. This happens on March 22 1999. Playoffs. If you want to skip the season and go straight through to the main end of the year, fine this option allows you to go and pick any NHL team and battle it out for the Stanley Cup. You can choose the best of 1-7 games. Also the expansion draft is an option to have it on or not. Shootout. This mode allows you to choose 2 teams for a shoot-out game. It's good for practising for the real game or practising one-on-one with the goalie. You also get to select your line-up which is 5 players and 1 goalie. In this mode you also get a chance to have a rematch. Tournament. In this mode you can choose if you want a round-robin game. Also you can choose 8-12 teams and 1-4 rounds (only if it is a round-robin). The expansion draft is again also an option. You can choose teams from all NHL teams or all of the counties. It is a fun game type to play when you can match up regular NHL teams against the Counties and the same player against himself. Coaching Drills. This the place to go when you are just learning about the game. The strategies are by Marc Crawford. You can have a go at many situations that you would be in a game. Powerplay, shorthanded, one-on-one with the goalie or even strength. It's just a al-round great place for beginners or if you just want to sharpen up on your skills. 3. LEVELS Beginner: Great mode to learn on or when your hungry for goals. Rookie: I bit harder than beginner but still a good place to begin. Pro: This is when competion begins. Pretty hard at start but you should soon conquer it. All-Star: The hardest mode of all. This it face it or leave it. As good as it gets for competion. 4.
