Summary: This is the worst hockey game that has ever come out. The team rosters are from last year. They had to change the control scheme to confuse everyone. Graphics and gameplay suck!!! When you score a goal in Joe Louis Arena playing as the Detroit Red Wings, the goal horn does not sound like the real thing!!! NHL 2K7 has the real authentic goal horns. Not to mention they say that this game is revolutionary, when in reality, its just like last years game.
Summary: As a big hockey fan, I had high hopes for this game. Unfortunately, it turns out that EA Sports did not even try this time, this is one of the worst games they have put on the market. Here are the main reasons I doubt you will enjoy playing this game. 1. Your goalie is worthless. You can easily outshoot your opponents with something like 50-4 shots on goal, but then you better score at least five goals.
Summary: where do i begin? i have been playing the 2k series for about the past 5 years or so. before then, i always got the ea nhl games. well, when i read 2 days before the release date that nhl 2k7 got delayed by about a month, i decided to give ea another chance. after i started the game up, i set my settings for the hardest difficulty level, with the shot accuracy and power turned all of the way down.
Summary: The graphics and gameplay are identical to NHL 06. Controls have changed in the way that I find it impossible to play. What a waste of money, what a rip off. Hopefully it has some trade in value. NHL 2K7 is coming out Oct. 7.
