Summary: PROS - Much better skating. Smaller guys can dipsy doodle and bigger guys are less agile. Players actually push the puck ahead while skating hard. - Better offense. You can actually work at setting up a play in the offensive zone. - Puck factor.
Summary: Let me start off by explaining what I mean by calling EA's NHL 2006 the Anti-NHL 2004. NHL 2004 was an awesome game--extremely realistic, tight checking/defense. NHL 2006, however, is NOT the super-tight checking/defensive game.
Summary: EA Sports, once again, has put together a very solid game. What I enjoy the most about NHL 2006 is the Dynasty Mode option, which give you the opportunity to manage one of several NHL and European franchises (or create your own!).
Summary: This is the first of.the most recent series where you can put yourself in and play on european professional teams. The attention to detail and the NHL all stars and hall of famers you can play against in europe makes it fun. The game arrived in great shape and plays well.
Summary: My son and husband are both NHL freaks and I don't hear from them for hours when they play this together, so I guess they like it. I would love to ask them, but they are currently plaing it AGAIN!
Summary: It seems like I favor every EA NHL release that ends with an even year. For example, I liked NHL 2002, but not 2003. I enjoyed NHL 2004, but thought 2005 was deplorable. NHL 2006 basically uses the same engine as 2005, but with all the improvements in gameplay that made NHL 2005 impossible, or...
Summary: After the fiasco that was 05 I almost lost hope in EA Sports, but I decided to try and keep faith with them and...was not dissapointed. Its a great FUN game and is quick responsive and a pleasure as well as a challenge to play.
Summary: NHL 2006 brings all the elements, of the 2005 game back with a more retro feel, ie stars under players rather than onimous circles, everything polish and done up but principally it the same game as NHL 2005 just with the added original perks, these being: : Create own team : Create own players : Has...
Summary: Ich habe mir gerade NHL 2006 zugelegt und ich muß sagen-Spitze!!! Die Steuerung ist noch einfacher als beim Vorgänger und der Karrieremodus ist jetzt noch interessanter,da man mit einer selbst erstellten Mannschaft die Karriere bestreiten kann!
Summary: Hallo, endlich ist die NHL-Reihe von EA wieder da angekommen, wo Sie 2003 stehen geblieben ist. Die Steuerung ist wieder einfacher geworden und man hat sich dabei auf das nötigste beschränkt. Die Grafik hat sich außerdem noch mal deutlich verbessert.
