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. So I purchased NHL '08 a couple of months ago for less than $2.00, and it has served me well.

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.

One of the best hockey games ever produced

Kevin Major, Amazon
29 September 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. The biggest change, and the biggest positive, in the game compared to its compatriots (regardless of brand) is the notion of positioning being important.

still early but I think its better than EA nhl 08

Doodle Meriwether, Amazon
29 September 2008
  • Summary: I've been playing EA sports nhl series since 1995. I still think NHL 95 is the best version they ever created. BTW, I have the NHL Hockey TV game sold here on Amazon also. With NHL 08 I find the controls to be frustrating. Though it may be a bit of a learning curve to adjust to 2k8's control scheme, I just think its much better than NHL 08. I've played the NHL 08 demo and like some earlier version of the series I hate the control aspects.

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) Controls take some times to get use to Still some soft goals get in (seems to be a glitch) Body checking is sometimes a challange You'll hit the post no less than 8 times per...

  • Summary: Decided to buy it because I've always liked the hockey games in the past. This one has a few too many buttons to press, and haven't figured out how to make the guys fight yet, but all in all, it is a fun game and worth it.

TWEENER

Derek Yorkison "The GR8 Beast", Amazon
28 February 2008
  • 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. I just happen to love watching defensive hockey with the occasional excitement caused when a strong DEFENSIVE play causes an odd-man rush the other way. STAND-ALONE: Fun, addictive, true hockey simulation.
