- The game’s back copy states “hot sequel to the smash hit” – the original was only on the Nintendo 64 console wise, but they might be playing off the original’s arcade release.
- Multi-Tap Icon is missing off the back of the case.
- While the PlayStation didn’t have to worry about it, Midway caused a bit of a PR problem with the Nintendo 64 version. The game is just a minor upgrade to the original release, but then Midway went and re-used the game again as Olympic Hockey ’98 on Nintendo’s system. When journalistic entities discovered the Olympic version was essentially just a uniform switch and nothing else, IGN’s Matt Casamassina wrote the immortal one-line review of, “We’ll post a new review when Midway releases a new game.”
