Mega placed the game at #2 in their Top Mega Drive Games of All Time.[2] According to Maximum, "A previously under-exposed and almost unheard of sport this side of the great divide, the original NHL on the Megadrive [sic] was a benchmark title and thanks to the reputation of John Madden Football and an excellent review in Mean Machines, it became an instant classic."[3]
