Good Hockey Game

Cheryl Laferriere, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a really fun hockey game. Great for a hockey fan, it has almost any jersey from any team in the nhl. It's great. PS: The fighting engine is the best I've seen from any hockey game before.

Fun, atleast better than EA's NHL

Bryan "Bryan", Amazon

  • Summary: ESPN NHL 2k5 is a good game, but not great. I am a little biased, because I enjoy EA sports games more than the ESPN titles...But due to the fact that NHL 2005 from EA is no different than the 2004 version (which i loved by the way), i was forced into buying ESPN...plus with no hockey this year most likely, i had to have some hockey right? The pros: the gameplay of ESPN is great.

Better Then NHL 2005!

Bill.B "Bill", Amazon
26 October 2004
  • Summary: This game is by far better then NHL. This game is faster pace and has better camera views. The mini games are fun and the graphics are just merely ok. The gameplay is way better then NHL and twice as fun. The only thing NHL has going for it is good graphics. Yes ESPN does feel like it should of been better with it's glitches there and here. The fighting is a little bit stale and freezes up before the fight starts.

So chill, it's freezing

  • Summary: For years (okay, make it about three or four), Sega has been desperately trying to topple EA's NHL series as imminent rulers of the rink. The NHL series has been great, but as much fun as "NHL 2004" was (awesome fighting engine), I was dissappointed with so much emphasis they put on the defensive game.

Good Game

S. Harbaugh "harbash6", Amazon

  • Summary: 2K5 is a good hockey game at a great price. The gameplay is great once you up the level to pro or all-star. The mini games add some extra fun to the package and the franchise mode has a lot of depth to it. However, there are a couple of short comings that need to be mentioned. First if you are expecting the same type of ESPN presentation that NFL 2K5 had, you will be very disappointed. There is basically no presentation at all, espcially for the PS2 version.

They tried to beat EA's release date & price... and it shows

Ryan Yamada "icono68", Amazon
7 September 2004
  • Summary: While NHL 2K5 is a nice step along the development road for the series, the main goal of the product was to beat EA's NHL 2005 out the door and get it out cheaper. Unforetunately, while some improvements are made the quicker and cheaper route shows through and holds this game back. On the positive side, many great new features were added. The mini games are amusing and a great hockey party game.

Extremely Playable

7 September 2004
  • Summary: Maybe it is not fair reviewing this before I saw EA's hockey game for this season. When I like something though I feel the urge to review that product ASAP. And I do like this game. The controls are not as basic as EA's so that always takes some adjusting as I switch back and forth between playing EA 2004 and ESPN SEGA 2k5. However the graphics are more than adequate as one reviewer already mentioned I enjoy the helmets reflection and other details as well.

very good, could of been great

  • Summary: NHL 2K5 is certainley one of the best ice hockey games although the ea games of NHL 2005 is better. 2K5 has good gameplay and graphics, it can be quite challenging. As well as the actual playing of the game it is also a manager game, you can swap or buy players and you have to be able to afford them aswell, you do the basic formation settings which include formation, and line ups. You can also edit and create your own team.

Suuper Gameplay

Marki Spielviel, Amazon
19 June 2008
  • Summary: Hallo, das Spiel ist einfach Klasse. Die Grafik ist gut und übersichtlich. Das Gameplay ist brilliant. Der einzige Abzug, ist die Buttonbelegung. Durch die Doppelbelegung schaltet man das Spiel nach Beendigung oft sofort auf das Menue. Dadurch kommt man selten in den Genuß, den Abspann zu sehen. Leider kann man diese auch im Optionsmenue nicht ändern. Eine Lösung wäre gewesen, die Start-Taste zu belegen.
