Conclusion: NHL 2K7 is a decent addition to the 2K sports range, and a title with core gameplay so pure that it easily overcomes any hint of a problem. The focus on cinematic in-game presentation is undoubtedly a success, and with features like this being added every year, it seems that Visual Concepts are on...
Conclusion: As much as this may shock even the most unflappable of you out there, if you have played a previous NHL 2Kwhatever game before then you'll probably know what to expect. If you don't know what to expect then you're either a moron through not listening at school or because of some kind of disease.
Excerpt: NHL shoots its way on the PlayStation 3 and takes the franchise to the next evolutionary stage with its improved gameplay and unique control system that will let players take command of tape-to-tape passing, behind-the-net plays and precision give-and-go attacks in one of the most exciting hockey...
Excerpt: Despite the lessened popularity surrounding the sport of hockey in the U.S., hockey video games still sell pretty darn well, and 2K Sports has a very solid NHL franchise. Their last few installments have felt a little too similar to one another, but we had heard a great deal about 2K7 before its...
Excerpt: Short of, say, an arcade basketball game, few sports have made the leap from real to digital recreations as wholly intact and intuitively as hockey. Maybe it's because the game itself isn't terribly hard to understand.
NHL 2K7 might be your only choice for a hockey game to go with your new PlayStation 3, but it's still a great one.

Summary: 2K Sports' NHL 2K franchise made its next-generation debut a couple of months back on the Xbox 360 with NHL 2K7. If you want to get technical, NHL 2K6 was on the 360 as well, though that game was a glorified port of that year's Xbox game.
Pros: Cinemotion brand of presentation is a unique and enjoyable alternative, Great looking player models and animations, and fantastic looking ice, the same deep, engaging gameplay the series is known for, lots of available features, both offline and online, Some new Sixaxis tilt control features that...
Cons: Core gameplay has changed little since last year's game, A few ugly animations
The outstanding gameplay mechanics will be familiar to fans of the series, but NHL 2K7 makes important strides in the realm of presentation with this year's 360 offering.

Summary: To coincide with the launch of the Xbox 360, 2K Sports published a port of NHL 2K6 for the system in a fairly quick-and-dirty fashion. Sure, it retained the excellent gameplay of the Xbox and PlayStation 2 versions that had been released a couple of months prior, but it also retained practically the...
Pros: Cinemotion brand of presentation is a unique and enjoyable alternative, Vastly improved graphics over last year's 360 game, The same deep, engaging gameplay the series is known for, Lots of available features, both offline and online
Cons: Core gameplay has changed little since last year, Not much in the way of new features, A few ugly holdover animations
Excerpt: Game On! The blurb on the box calls NHL 2K7 ?The Premier NHL game for the Playstation 3? And to be fair, they are not wrong. Since this is the ONLY NHL game on PS3. This will change however when EA throw thier hat into the PS3 ice hockey ring(or should that be rink!). So currently . 2K rule the ice!
Pros: The best looking NHL game ever.Interesting use of sixaxis controller.
Cons: Cinemotion score.Still too hard to score a goal.
