Summary: I have a Game Cube. NHL 2004 is one of the best games on a current-gen console. EA Sports really did a great job with this game. The graphics are solid. The player faces are pretty good. Player models are outstanding and life-like. The ice shine with light reflections. The sound is good. You can here a player get crushed against the boards, or here a slapper get rocketed of a stick. The commentary is great with Jim Houston and Craig Simpson.
