Summary: I bought this game knowing very little about ice hockey and found out what a fun game it is to play. The gameplay on it is supurb and the fact that you can create your own players and teams means that you and your friends can beat the world.
Summary: This game shows the real side of Ice Hockey: The checks, the top-corner wrist shots and the all out power of the National Hockey League. As a keen fan of the other beautiful game, i can easily critisise whether it shows an accurate portrayel of how the game is played.
Long lasting gameplay to pass the winter evenings.

Summary: Having played EA's NHL game for 9 years now and real ice hockey for 11, this is the most realistic game ever. It's harder than ever to place that tackle. But when you do you will crush the guy. Small tackles are easy to make but won't knock him over. Just as in real hockey.
Summary: The graphics on this game are super ! 10x better than 2002 (and geez I thought that was good). It's cool how you can make your own teams and the detail is so fine it looks like real life.Theres only one thing thats wrong, you can't make tournements with your own teams.In my opinion this is EA's best...
