Summary: The graphics are not tremendous. The announcing is horrible. that said, the gameplay is fast and fun. I have EA version, and the graphics and play by play are much better, but the gameplay is not as action packed. this offers much more end to end play, so I actually would recommend this over EA.
Summary: This game had so much for it, but there a few flaws in the menu areas. The graphics aren't bad and in fact they were better than I expected. The controls are easy to get used to and I think they might be the same as ones in the EA Sports HHL game.
Summary: When i play in the modes i have lots of fun. But when you play into 10 years franchis mode the games freezs. Then i have to delate all my data and start oll over and i hate that part. I love the games with no probles besides that one.
Hockey part VERY fun, but takes a lot of adjusting.

Summary: This game is very fun. I love it, but the speed of the game is to slow. It also takes about an hour of adjusting the the game sliders to your preferences before the game becomes fun. you can adjust the skating speed of the players, but at the top level, it's still slightly to slow.
Summary: Things to like- Price. This game is selling for around $30 which is a great value. Game play. True that the default game speed is way too slow out of the box, but this is easily corrected by modifying the game sliders. I've adjusted my slider all the way to 100% for game speed and I like it.
Summary: This is a pretty good game. It's a step up from the years past in 2ksports NHL games, and it continues to get more realistic. I have it on PS3 and am pretty happy with my purchase. Graphics are of course, pretty stunning. The fighting isn't that good - two buttons, really? Overall it is decent.
Summary: For years I always found the NHL 2K series vastly superior to EA's NHL franchise, but lately since both have made the jump to the next-gen, EA's NHL has been coming out on top in terms of simulation-style hockey.
Summary: I have been playing NHL2K games since 2K7 came out for ps3 4 years ago, I made the jump because EA hockey games weren't all that great when I had ps2. Before I got ps3 the only EA NHL game that my friends and I would play was NHL2001, then i made a gamble on 2004 and it was beat.
