Great Buy

  • Summary: I love this game I have tried many diferent NHL games in the past but this is awsome. It has a very indebth dynasty with trading signing upgrades and just about evaey thing else. The Good excellent graphics and sound easy to learn when ever a player scores a board comes up with the scorers season stats and the assists more realistic trading with the salary cap The bad You can't adjust ticket prices can be a little to easy Draft still stinks but is better than any others...

  • Summary: I haven't played a new version of NHL since 2003 (which is when I got married and had two kids since). Long story short, this game kicks butt.

Way better than 2k8

Brian "Brian", Amazon
7 January 2009
  • Summary: I am not a huge hockey fan but while browsing through the video games at a local store, I decided to pick up 2k8. The glitches made the game impossible to play. The commentators were constantly repeating what they had just said, after there was a frozen puck, man, it took forever for the game to come back to a face off screen. The gameplay was way to complex, with three pages explaining basic controls.

Much Improved Over 06 and 07

M. Buck, Amazon
14 September 2007
  • Summary: EA Sports NHL 08 is far better than the past two seasons efforts. One of the first things you will notice is that it does present itself a lot like 06 and 07 in terms of graphics and audio. However, the players move much more realistic and true to how certain players act and play the game. Goalies are MUCH improved as is the overall gameplay. Playing on the difficuly level is actually challenging and fun.
