Brett Hull Hockey '95 is a traditional ice hockey simulation video game released on January 1995 for multiple platforms; including the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, and personal computers running MS-DOS.
The game was developed by Radical Entertainment and published by the sports division of Accolade. It is the sequel to the original Brett Hull Hockey. The gameplay options include Exhibition, Half Season, Full Season, Play-offs and All-Star. Al Michaels called the play-by-play for every game (including the exhibition and all-star games).
More than 600 authentic hockey players are used for this simulation game. Athletes are rated in skills related to skating, offense, defense, and goaltending skills. The "coach mode" allows players to customize the team in order to meet their gaming needs. There is an NHLPA license in the game but no NHL license; so that teams are only mentioned by city name. The Super NES version only has a password save method instead of a battery backup method due to memory limitations.
Reviewing the Super NES version, GamePro praised the coaching feature and assessed that Brett Hull Hockey '95, while not as good a game as NHL Hockey '95, has an action-driven style of gameplay which might be more appealing to beginning players and action fans. A different GamePro critic gave the Genesis version a negative review, citing grainy voice, "slow game play and slower control", and the game's emphasis on individual plays rather than teamwork.
