Reviews and Problems with NHL Eastside Hockey Manager
Showing 1-10 of 20
1 week ago
Summary: In simple words: not perfect, but still (and we are in 2013...) the best hockey manager game on the market... I'm still playing it... and there is a very active community (Blue Line, for example) that provide updates to rosters and other useful things.
Summary: Being a Hockey fan, with MS, I was seeking a more cerebral game to play that did not require fast hands to play. This is just that type game. It has many limitations such as making you fiscaly responsibile yet unable to make but a few changes in that category. That form of limit can be found elsewhere too. This is more a business game than a hockey game where the actual game is not as important as the team management.
Summary: It is the best game I have ever played. When I played NHl 2003, I bought the latest NHl 2007 because I liked NHl 2003. It has so high graphics and tricks that I never played before. Buy this game. I recomend this game.
Summary: For years now, I have been playing graphics based Hockey games from Sega, ESPN, and EA Sports. Frankly, I'm bored with controlling the skaters and playing an actual hockey game. So, I spent more and more time managing the team: re-signing players, signing free-agents, drafting, trading, etc. If you're in the same boat, you should try out EHM 2005. The General Manager functions are 10-times better than those other games.
EHM 2005 and straightening things out about this game
15 May 2005
Summary: The company that makes this game is based in England, which shows why the NHL is shown as a different way of business. It is different than the way European Leagues do player transactions (players are bought and sold rather than traded for other players or draft picks) and relgation and promotion (teams the fair poorly or win the league move down a league or up a league).
Summary: First off, this title is available as a dual PC/Mac CD-ROM. I have only run the Mac version. To start, the manual leaves a lot to be desired. First, it promises that the installation instructions are in the installation file. The file is just a .dmg archive with no installation instructions. Dragging the folder to the Applications folder seems to be an adequate way to start. The user interface is clunky and not very intuitive. I guess it takes some getting used to.
Summary: This game is the in-depth hockey managing game that many true fans have been waiting for. This game is very very in-depth with all the different transactions and options available like a regular general manager would have in any league. The statistics and player ratings are far more realistic than graphic games like the EA Sports line or ESPN games. If you ever thought you could be a better manager than the one for your favorite hockey team, this is the game to buy.
