  • Summary: This game is so realistic!!!!!! The players are so made up like they are real. I can see the beads of sweat down thier forehead!!!!! The comintators are non-repetitive, And very discribing. the Only flaw is that u use the right bumber to shoot.

  • Summary: 2K's version uses triggers to shoot. It's a hockey game not a shooting game. EA's version is better again this year. Using triggers to shoot is just bizarre and feels unnatural. Maybe next year 2K.

  • Summary: I bought both NHL games this year and I find myself playing this one a lot more than NHL 08. 08 is way nicer, but there seems to be a lot lacking in terms of controls. How do I dive to the ice to catch a player on breakway?

  • Summary: This game is horrible! It plays like a PS2 game. The speed burst is ridiculously fast, button schemes aren't logical. The special moves are nice, but they aren't very controllable, thus making you do the same moves over and over. Goalie AI lets in softies and have generally bad positions.

  • Summary: A completely underrated game this year. Everyone bought into the EA hype, but after you get into the game you realize that 2k is still the more immersive game of the two franchises. EA's stick feature was a great innovation, but it was an extra feature..

  • Summary: The controls took a little getting used to, but now the game is just smooth and beautiful. Animations are great...the whole feel of the game is a step up from 2K7. Good job.

  • Summary: Keep in mind that many of these reviews are from writers who are gamers first, and may only be casual hockey fans. As a Canadian man who has spent over 30 years as a fan of this great sport, I would advise anyone who wants to play the best pure hockey sim to choose 2K8.

  • Summary: After playing 20+ games of NHL 2K8, I finally got used to the control.... I must admit it was different than the controls of previous games. Once you get used to the control the game feels very smooth. You can practically do anything you want in this game.
