NHL 08 is a smart game of hockey skating, an improvement over 07 especially the skill stick. NHL 08 also features a great practice mode that not only lets you practice strategies in a wide variety of scenarios, but actually includes a play creator. It records the movements of individual players via neon-colored arrows on the ice. You can basically place each player in a position to score. It works perfectly and as soon as you set the right player into the proper starting position, all the other players on your team systematically move to their proper starting positions and execute the game. The graphics of NHL 08 is subtle and fantastic. fantastic engine. The improved skating is most probably the biggest visual treat. The player models and the animation have been perfectly created. Perfect also are the sound effects and soundtrack. They just blend with the game. Audio commentary of Gary Thorne and Bill Clement remains till now the best commentating duo in all of sports gaming, with a natural-sounding chemistry that makes it feel real. Their dialogue is also considerably better written and less repetitive as compared to 07. Most reviewers find NHL 08 to be a terrific game of hockey that's both realistic and thrilling to play and re-play.
