Actua Ice Hockey 2 is Gremlin Interactive's second approach to the genre of hockey simulations. Initially, the game was developed in cooperation with FOX Interactive, which provided the official license of the American NHL (National Hockey League). However, during the implementation of the project, the cooperation was discontinued. As a result, the development team decided to introduce a fictional league, as well as deliberately modifying the players' names and images.

As befits an ice hockey simulation, players have the opportunity to lead selected teams. The game offers several fun options, including a full season of fiction, the North American GHL (Gremlin Hockey League), a single friendly match or arcade mode to play a three-person team match on a smaller ice rink.

The gameplay mechanics has been significantly improved compared to the first installment of the Actua Ice Hockey cycle. The creators implemented, among other things, a physics system responsible for collisions of hockey players on the ice rink. Tactical options have also been extended. Players have an influence on, among other things, the composition of each Friday, the setting of lines, the speed of attack formation, as well as the players' commitment to defense.

For the purpose of Actua Ice Hockey 2, developers from the Gremlin Interactive studio have thoroughly modernized their own game engine. This translated into more refined character models and smoother rendering of 3D animations.
