Summary: EA's NHL 07 redefined the hockey genre with one simple feature, the skill stick. Though the game had few modes and several artificial intelligence issues, its star play mechanic worked brilliantly, and created a great rebuilding point for the franchise.
Pros: The skill stick still rules, Vastly improved AI that adapts to your offensive tendencies, Online modes have been fleshed out to include team play and leagues, Superb graphics and audio, Great create-a-play feature
Cons: A few remaining control quirks and glitchy goals, Online play currently has some connection issues, Goalie controls are still kind of a pain, Frame rate isn't terribly stable

Pros: Knivskarp AI, god online-del, bredt udvalg af ligaer.
Cons: Mange fejl, irriterende kommentatorer, sterile animationer.
Conclusion: Alla prima apparizione su Playstation 3 i programmatori della Elctronic Arts sono riusciti subito ad ottenere un prodotto di primissima qualità. Fin dalla prima partita colpiscono positivamente due aspetti. Il primo è la spettacolarità della grafica.
