ESPN/Sega Hockey: Not This Season

M. Buck, Amazon
6 May 2004
  • Summary: Sega's ESPN NHL Hockey (2K4) isn't the great hockey game that it was last year. Where it has some good options and unlockables (great teams from the past), the gameplay really hurts one's ability to fully enjoy the game. Graphically, the game looks a tad bit better than EA's NHL 2004. The sounds in the game aren't that great as well as the horrible crowd chants and rink announcer.

Stick with 2003

  • Summary: First off, let me start out by saying that the online aspect of this game is simply awful. Sega must fix it's network or else be laughed out of the online business. If you're used to the smooth play of Madden 2004 online, don't expect anything close to that w/ this game. The play runs very sluggish and freezes often in the middle of a game, it isn't my connection either because many people complain of the same problems. Secondly, 2003's version had better game play.

  • Summary: It's been a while since the online play has worked correctly. The gameplay itself is great. By far the best available, but SEGA needs to get their network fixed.

Major Dissapointment

Justin D Butz, Amazon
3 January 2004
  • Summary: I was very excited to get this game because I thought last years version was outstanding. The graphics in this years version are incredible, unfortunately the game play is not. Getting to collect a loose puck is time consuming after skating circles around the puck which is right at your feet. Your teammates' player AI is terrible and you might as well not ever try to pass out with the goaltender as most passes miss intended receivers and go directly to the other team.

treue NHL-Fans werden enttäuscht sein

Detective Fanning, Amazon
27 December 2003
  • Summary: Zunächst das wohl wichtigste vorweg: das Geschehen auf dem Eis selbst ist bei ESPN NHL Hockey 2004 ein wahres Vergnügen. Hier wird Eishockey-Simulation auf allerhöchstem Niveau geboten; auf höheren Schwierigkeitsgraden müssen sich die Tore mit ausgefeilten Spielzügen regelrecht erkämpft werden. Auf primitive Action mit brutalen Checks, einem ausgefeilten Prügel-Modus und Toren aus allen Lagen wird man dagegen verzichten müssen, was begrüßenswert ist.
