Summary: This year I decided to buy ESPN NHL 2k6 because it was cheaper than NHL 06, but what I found is it is also really bad. The gameplay just flat out sucks and the graphics are not that good as well. The commentators, Bob Cole and Harry Neale make the game boring. Here are the problems with the gameplay of ESPN NHL 2k6: 1. the so called hit-stick sucks because every time you use it, the referee calls a penalty and within 5 seconds you could be on a 3-5 penalty kill. 2.
Summary: Tjhis game gets a 5 star rating for fun, but fails overall for reasons listed below. Initially I thought NHL 2K6 was a great hockey game. Very authentic gameplay that allowed me to learn a lot about the game of hockey. I played a season with my favorite team in the Rookie setting and was doing awesome. For some reason though, at around Games 35-37 the game started glitching whenever I tried to save my season progress.
Summary: I got the game the very first day and returned it the very second day! I was so disapointed. Beside somewhat different commentaries everything else sucks big time and it's not even close to 2K5. Comparing to NBA Live 06 it is really a low-class game which was not the case last year. I'll just wait for FIFA 06 - EA Sports knows how to keep their gamegeeks.
