Great Game, Few Annoying Bugs

  • Summary: This is a real good game. Very realistic, even down to the goal horns. Playing against NJ as The Mighty Ducks and hearing the goal horn from NJ brought back nightmares from Games 5 & 7. The only problems I have with the game is the jersey numbers. For example, I acquired Daniel Briere, and instead of letting me pick his jersey, the game automatically gave him #66. It's the little things that bother me. A game that is so good, shouldn't have that kind of glitch in it.

  • Summary: If you remember nhl2k2 for the Dreamcast then you already know that all this game is about is a port with minor adjustments and updates. With that said, on with the review. First off the good. It is good that sega aquired the ESPN license. It gives a more tv style presentation to the game. The player models are a lot better but the goalies still look weird. EA's NHL has sega beat there. As far as game play goes, its a lot more realistic in comparison to other ps2 titles.

The best PS2 hockey game. Period.

  • Summary: I've played all the big hockey games so far and two have really let my down. 989 was the WORST EVER! Bad graphics, lousy game play and a definite 989 doesn't care what it looks like attitude contributed to a complete failure in my opinion. EA was better. The commentary was horrible, but I just turned it off. Even so, other elements made me wish for more. Then I bought NHL2K3. AWSOME! The got the arenas right, the uniforms look good and the gameplay is pretty top notch.

  • Summary: I took the advice of a Video Game Store employee and waited out til 2K3 came out, instead of buying NHL 2003, as he claimed it was much more realistic. He was right, and so far I am glad I waited. I agree with some other reviewers that there are some glaring errors including: replay cam from wrong net, lame announcing (sometimes you'll hear "what a save!" when the shot clearly rang off a post), and the player faces don't look like them at all, very generic.

NHL2K3 vs. NHL2003

  • Summary: If it's in the game, its in NHL2K3. A hard-core NHL player on the EA side of the tracks since NHL94 I finally broke down and shelled out the [money] for Sega's shot at hockey on PS2. Initially I was impressed by the ESPN features and definitely floored by the depth of the user options, GM choices, etc.

EA's finally got competition.

  • Summary: I'm one of those guys that says every year, "I'M NOT BUYING EA's NHL this year!", but I always do. I had to because I just couldn't wait a month for Sega's. But I bought NHL2K3 anyhow, and I'm glad. While EA's NHL2003 looks "cartoony", NHL2k3 looks (and moves) very realistic. The weirdest thing that I've noticed about NHL2K3 is that it looks and plays very similar to Konami's National Hockey Night (2001), though obviously better.

Great Hockey Game - Go Bruins!

  • Summary: As for the Hockey...this game is very good. Hockey is probably one of the most dynamic of the major sports (read: Football, Basketball, Baseball, Hockey) and as such, I'm sure it is especially difficult to program Hockey AI, versus, say, Football, where you could program a defense based on offensive formations and get it right most of the time.
