Summary: I'm not sure if I like it that much or alot because first of all, the players movements are a little too fast.At least the crowd actually cheers when you score a goal unlike NHL 2K5 wich I think is way better than this.
Summary: After the sad outings the last few years with this title, why would I or anyone go out to pick up this one? Well, I didn't. I recieved it for Christmas, and after letting it sit in the shrink wrap for almost a week, I reluctantly put it in and checked it out. And to my surprise, it has been much improved. The unrealistic scoring has been fixed, although sometimes a team will still put up big numbers on your goalie.
Summary: I enjoy the changes EA made to NHL series since the horrendous outing of 2003: like the GM role, bruise control, upgrades & finances, team chemistry & player morale, wrist shot, each team arena having its' own goal horn, open-ice, AI improvement, the injury slider, and the reduction of the color commentary, etc.
Summary: 1st of all i fell sorry for the last guy who reviewed this game, because he hasnt even played it. second i made the switch this yaear as well to espn 2k5, i was hooked by the 19.99 price, and i must say i got what i paid for. not that this game is bad but i might as well have bought nhl hits for all the hockey realism it containes. granted i have not played ea's nhl 2005 yet but i will buy it with the trade in from my copy of espn 2k5.
Summary: This is a pretty decent game. The problem with NHL 2003, and 2004 was that scoring was way too easy. So it's ironic that on NHL 2005 scoring is way too hard. I think EA needs to find a happy medium and fix this on NHL 06. One major complaint on this game would be the hitting. It is very unrealistic to be hit every time you touch the puck. The emphasis needs to be on playmaking and less on the physical aspect of the game.
Summary: What makes this game outstanding from last years effort is it's attempt to make it like a real event. From the teams coming out onto the ice,(note Edmonton and Colorado, and San Joses entrance) to the national anthems you feel you are about to witness a real match. The slickness and speed of the game is so quick, and the animation so realistic ie Zdeno Chara the tallest player in the league is actually very tall on the ice.
Excerpt: Hola a todos, Como ya he contado en alguna opinión me gustan mucho los videojuegos de deportes y los de hockey sobre hielo me gustan bastante por la buena jugabilidad que ofrecen ( EA Sport) y porque suele salir bastantes partidos muy emocionantes por las características de este deporte. Lo primero que quiero destacar es que como muchos de vosotros sabréis EA Sport es sinónimo de calidad y que todos sus juegos, incluido éste, cuentan con licencias oficiales.
Excerpt: Se trata de un shooter de Rebellion que salió en PS2 en el 2004 y que a pesar del tiempo transcurrido, te engancha cuando lo vuelves a jugar. La historia es ficticia (la 1ª guerra mundial dura ya 50 años). No llega a la altura de (Black y Killzone, que son los mejores del género en PS2), pero está muy cerca de ellos por su originalidad y por las fases con el rifle de francotirador que son geniales.
