    Review Blades of Steel

    With sharpened blades and a lethal stick, you slash into a rink surrounded by thousands of screaming fans.

    Blades of Steel, much like one of Konami's other NES sports games, Double Dribble, was loved all over the world back in the day. Double Dribble didn't hold up that well, so you may wonder how its ice hockey has fared. Actually, it has aged...

About The Game

With sharpened blades and a lethal stick, you slash into a rink surrounded by thousands of screaming fans. It's time for full-speed, high-contact hockey, the kind of bone-jarring action played by the pros. The puck is dropped, you take control, centre it and... Whoa! Your opponent viciously checks you from behind, making an incredible steal. You charge after him, crushing him against the boards. Suddenly tempers flare, off come the gloves, and you're swinging fists like a prize fighter! What action! This hard-hitting NES classic also features simultaneous play for two players - and you can even play goalie in the slap-shooting penalty scenes!

So strap on your Blades of Steel - and imagine those immortal words: "He shoots, he scores!"
