NHL 06 Review

VideoGamer.com

  • Excerpt: The 2005 season is going to go down in history as one of the worst years for hockey fans. Sure there was a pointless and easily avoidable lockout to deal with, but also because of EA Sports' rather disappointing NHL 2005 - easily one of the worst titles in the series, next to 2003. Fortunately EA is back on track this time around with the right game plan in mind.

  • Excerpt: NHL 06 may not look leaps and bounds better than the previous iteration of the game, but it still looks pretty damn good... at least for the most part. The animations are fluid and checks look brutal. There are some minor flaws when checking players into the boards, but these only crop up on the replays. The main problem with the graphics is in variety.

  • Excerpt: NHL 06's controls are simple and easy to pick up, though they would be easier to learn if somewhere in the paltry 6.5 page instruction manual (it's actually 9 pages, but 2.5 are legal disclaimers), if things like "bruise control" were actually explained. At the touch of a button you can sprint, shoot, deke, pass, and on the defensive side, you can poke check, check, and sprint.

  • Summary: Deking? Checking? You'll be doing a lot in EA's new NHL 06' and Wolf's right there on the ice getting his paws frozen to help you find out if it's a HOT or NOT title.

  • Conclusion: It's become the norm now hasn't it, EA, another sports title to add to the collection, if you are an avid NHL fan then this is a definite game you should purchase. If you have never played an NHL game in your life then start now, it doesn’t get any better than this, until next year on the PS3 of course!

  • Summary: Es ist schön zu sehen, dass sich EA endlich der immer lauter gewordenen Kritik angenommen hat. Das realistischere Handling, die massiv verbesserte Offense- und Defense-KI sowie die erstklassigen Animationen machen NHL06 zu einem tollen Eishockeyspiel. Negativ aufgefallen sind mir wie immer die unschönen Zuschauerränge, sowie die unnötig komplizierte Open-Ice-Steuerung.

NHL 06 - Preview

  • Summary: Wie kaum anders zu erwarten, halten sich auch in diesem Jahr die Neuerungen der 'NHL'-Reihe in Grenzen. Immerhin hat EA auf die Kritik der Fans gehört und das ruppige Verhalten der Gegner reduziert – fast schon zu stark sogar. Die auffälligsten Neuerungen liegen in der überarbeiteten Steuerung, die nun noch etwas mehr Möglichkeiten bietet, sowie dem endlich auch in Europa implementierten Online-Modus, den wir mangels Gegnern leider noch nicht großartig anspielen konnten.

  • Summary: Mit Enslaved: Odyssey to the West schuff Ninja Theory ein Spiel, welches einem auch nach dem Abspann noch lange in Erinnerung bleibt. Dabei glänzt es weniger durch seine spielerischen Aspekte und mehr durch eine beinahe makellose Inszenierung, welche nie auf der Stelle zu tretten scheint, sondern darauf bedacht ist, den Spieler ständig nach vorne zu führen.
