Summary: For the money $$$, NHL 2K8 is the best looking hockey game his year hands down. The ice is slick and gets torn up as skaters race across it, the screen pops with color and action, and the players are always moving and hungry for the puck. Here is the Question NHL 08 or 2K8? I Have played both and NHL 2K8 Beats out The EA Sports NHL 08.. I'm here to tell you about 2K's impressive and intensive take on the NHL.
Summary: We all know that sports games are all about control, and NHL '08 has some of the best available. With the left analog stick, you can slow down and speed up your player for maximum control. Also, stick controls are tightened up at close range, so no more randomly deciding who wins face-offs. Also added is a great General Manager mode, for those who wish to run their own hockey team some day. Haha.
Summary: The game came to me in good shape considering it was used. Just a smudge on it that was easily wiped off. As far as the game itself... It turns out I don't care for new hockey games. The older ones are better.
Summary: Got this game yesterday and looks very impressive. The practice sessions are very good and a bit tricky to start with. All the usual NHL teams in it as well as AHL and international teams. Has a good choice of modes of play from setting up your own tournament to Dynasty Mode. Can also create your player to look like yourself and play as a goalie in goalie mode which haven't done yet although sounds interesting.
