The game is essentially a copy of it's predecessor NHL Breakaway '98 with updated rosters and jersey designs. It has five gameplay modes: Exhibition, Season, Playoff, Practice, and Shoot-out. The players in the game have varying sizes which also affects how strong and fast they are on the ice. Those features are supported by a Momentum-Based Checking System.
Player creation is also available, with the custom name appearing on the back of the player's jersey. The Rumble Pak is also supported.
As in the real-world sport of hockey, the object is to score more goals than the opposing team to win the game.
All 27 NHL teams from that year appear in the game, including the expansion team the Nashville Predators. It also has the teams realigned in the new Divisions.
