Summary: As a big big hockey fan i would like to say all the hockey games are great, But this hockey game is the best!! The graphics are really really good about as good as NHL 07, you can actually look at players and tell who it is without seeing the name or the jersey.
Summary: If you are a serious hockey fan stay away from this game. This game absolutely sucks. The controls make you feel like a robot and the passing is absolutely horrible. Sometimes the computer makes the game feel like keepaway (impossible to do for the user).
Summary: I love how fast this game is, although some shoot it down because of how "hyper" it is. The speed of this game (which you can adjust by the way) is what sets it apart from the other guys. Graphics are very solid, with nice animations on checks and jukes.
Summary: After being rather frustrated with the NHL 2K6 effort and feeling that EA has become a little stale, I'm very pleased with Gretzky NHL 2006. The controls are simple (at least compared to the nonsense of 2K6 and their three-tiered overdone controller layout), the game is fast, the fun is endless.
