Summary: I'll admit that when I first picked up this game I wasn't really impressed. I'm accustomed to the ESPN and EA Sports games. To be honest with you I wanted to kill Gretzky at first for making me feel I've wasted forty bucks. I didn't wanna come on here and trash Gretzky 2005 right away though. I decided to give the game a bit of time. Now alot of you (like me) might be used to the really fast paced hockey games. Though fast paced is fun it's also not very realistic.
