As soon as we read the last paragraph of the description, we knew this app would be hammered in the Amazon Appstore. Apps that not only cost money, but require in-game purchases to play effectively, are rated low (which, quite honestly, we would tend to agree with). There is also a free version, Hockey Fight Lite, in Google Play which has a 3.9 star rating.

Removing the in-app purchase hatred from the mix, we would give it a solid high-threes rating.

There is also a version of Hockey Fight Pro (including in-app purchases) in the iOS App Store. It has a 3.5 star rating overall.
