Summary: NHL 08 It was the most excited I had been for a game in a really long time. They were finally adding the AHL and you could develop a minor league system. I had read a lot of reviews and they all said basically the same thing: This game is the best hockey game they had ever played. The perfect amalgamation between a hockey sim and an arcade game. The movement was ultra realistic and the puck physics were incredible. It was the ultimate hockey game.
Summary: If you know anything about EA Sports, it's that year after year, they recycle the same sports game by keeping the old and slapping a new year on it. NHL 08 is no different, and although there have been a few additions, this is basically the same hockey game we've seen on the PS2 for the last few years.
