I do remember Blades Of Steel, it surely was fun to play with a couple of friends.
However, I think it was quite ugly for graphics and not too complicated or appealing anyway.. ;-)
I haven't played Powerplay hockey, but I think I'd like to see an ice hockey game with a more 3d:ish look, something with more modern look than BladesOfSteel.
Something tat is more realistic and with better graphics and sound and more like a EA:s NHL series for the consoles and pc.
It's really a pity and quite a shame that the Amiga still hasn't seen a modern ice hockey game (..or football either??!!)
