Summary: The person below who gave the game a 2 out of 5 Star rating is an idiot. Mike Buck, let me tell you personally that you are by far the biggest moron to write a review. "If you want Realistic than choose NHL 2004 over ESPN." Are you stupid or are you always like that.
Summary: I love NHL 2k3 last year and I was so excited for this year's edition. In general I think everything bad about last year's game was fixed in this one. The new added features are a lot of fun and give you something new to try. The commentary is just amazing and is the biggest upgrade.
Summary: I waited with high anticipation for this game, especially after I found out that they got Gary Thorne and Bill Clement to do the play-by-play and commentary. though very pleased with the final product, there are some things that dissapointed me greatly.
Summary: I have been an avid fan of EA Sport's NHL Series for years but I have been left wanting more out of the series the last few years. I fully enjoyed NHL 2002 with it's interactive story mode but the last two years have been less than perfect in my mind.
Summary: This game is by far the<--- best hockey game out right now. Graphics are unbelieveable player stamina and characteristics are so true to life. Its like watching it on tv but only im in control!!
Summary: Ok most have it right this game is by far the best hockey game on the market. I lvoe it the gameplay is realistic enough to challenge you but still accessible enough to enjoy. The game is virtually unchanged from last year with just a few facelifts in all the right places.
Summary: Sega is definitely beyond a doubt the heir apparant of 989 as far as being major competition for EASPORTS. I bought this year's release, because last year's had some features missing from EA's product that I enjoyed such as deeper management control of your roster.
Summary: I admit I'm not an expert on hockey, but this game sure seems to nail the game of hockey. I cannot find a single flaw. It seems to play like the real game of hockey as seen on TV with graphics that seem to come straight out of the XBox.
