Summary: Where do I start? The persons involved in the making of this game, should actually try and watch hockey. Lets start out with the rediculous scores, I score over ten goals a game, in dynasty mode, on the difficult level. The game will get into little spurts where the computer is totally unstoppable. I will give you a hint, it all starts when you try and check a player and they will not fall down, even if they are gang checked.
Summary: For a good while now, every NHL game to come from Electronic Arts has focused more on an arcade-like presentation than a truer sim, while the rival 2K series (originally from Sega) provided a more authentic hockey video game. NHL 2006 continues EA's arcade-ish take on the NHL, and longtime fans of the series who have grown accustomed to this will find little to nitpick here, and they will also find that little has changed as well with the game's presentation.
Summary: This is a fun game with great graphics. I've played Gretzky NHL 2006 and NHL 2K6, and this is probably the overall best of the bunch. However, I have to comment on a few things that REALLY become aggrevating: 1. The goalies can be VERY hard to beat. As the Red Wings on Medium difficulty, Khabibulin stoned me two games in a row. I outshot the Hawks 67 to 39, and then 63-44, and lost both games 9-5. It became maddening.
Summary: Als alter NHL-Fan jetzt auch eine Rezension von mir zum vorliegenden Titel. NHL 2006 bietet ein stark actionlastiges Gameplay, es knallt und rummst an allen Ecken und es fällt einem mittelprächtigen Spieler wie mir absolut nicht schwer, ein Spiel mit 10:10 zu beenden - eher Basketball-Niveau würde ich sagen.
