"Throw off your gloves, put up your dukes and try not to get sent to the penalty box – Blades of Steel is here at last. This 8-bit take on professional ice hockey originally arrived on the NES just in time for Christmas in 1988, and managed to repeat the feat this past Christmas season by showing up in the Wii Shop just one day prior to the holiday on December 24. It was a welcome stocking stuffer, too, because this is a game that still has legions of fans, even 20 years after its original release. Maybe it's because of the fighting."
