Intensely Frustrating

Theodore Wolski, Amazon
28 March 2011
  • Summary: The sports games for all the platforms are a total scam - you can only get roster updates until the release of the new game, requiring you to purchase the new game for $60+ rather than simply update a perfectly good game for a nominal charge.

  • Summary: At the time this game achieved something for me that no other PS3 game had previosly. It was actually addictive and made me come back for more. Fighting off waves is more of a trail and error puzzle than I would like but there is still alot of satisfaction to be gained from roasting hoards of...

Awesome game!

Kan "Molardaddy", Amazon

  • Summary: 2009 NHL is still $40+. For $20, the 2008 version is a very nice choice. There's always a learning curve with these games. Buy the older version now and master it, before considering the 2009 version. So far, this is the game I constantly play with son on the PS3. Definitely would recommend it.

Huge Step Forward

Bill Covington "Chalupacabra", Amazon
20 April 2008
  • Summary: NHL 08 is one of the best games of hockey I've played since NHL 94' on the SNES. The controls are tight, the graphics are crisp and clean, and the A.I. is amazingly life-like. PROs: Graphics Physics Engine No Speed Burst Button Accurate Depiction of an NHL Game CONs: Difficult (even on lower levels)...

One of the best hockey games ever produced

Kevin Major, Amazon
20 March 2008
  • Summary: I was initially skeptical about NHL 08. I was a 2K Sports player for years as EA never seemed to get what hockey was really about. To put it simply, the 2K series tended to be hockey simulators while the EA games tended to be arcade games. That all changed with NHL 08.

TWEENER

  • Summary: If yer a hockey nut, like me, you'll love this game. I must admit though...I get goose-bumps thinking about 1-0 and 2-1, old time hockey scores. So I understand if some people think this game is slightly boring at times.

NHL 08, a great game with many bugs

AJB, Amazon
15 February 2008
  • Summary: This is a very good game that is very life-like. The load times are horrible and you cannot download roster updates or the system will frequently freeze. The game is fun and I would like for EA to release an update to fix all of their bugs.

As good as actually playing

Elliott C. Musial, Amazon
15 February 2008
  • Summary: this is a great game by EA sports. some of the only problems of the game are the fact that it doesn't have any rookies from the draft, so teams like Chicago don't have Patrick Kane or Jonathan Toews. also, playing in the all-star or superstar mode can be very frustrating.
