Expert Review

Video Game talk
22 October 2006
  • Excerpt: It's about time someone at EA wasn't content with simply releasing a minor update to the NHL franchise � so rather some be news event surrounding the addition of a deke added to the right analog stick it's actually something newsworthy this time. Looking at the differences between NHL 07 and the 2006 version, I actually felt like there was some additional effort put into the presentation of the title, as well as the already deep dynasty mode for those who not only like...

NHL 07

The Armchair Empire
9 October 2006
  • Conclusion: A.I.-controlled teams competing against you, when the A.I. displays perfectly accurate hockey acumen, there are still just as many frustrating examples of A.I. dimwittedness, especially for the men in goal. How an NHL-caliber goalie would allow goals on a regular basis from the blue line, the center-ice line, or even the opposite end’s blue line, I’ll never fathom.

  • Conclusion: As much as the gameplay feels smooth, the depth is there, the visuals are good, but to make this game worth a purchase this game just doesn’t feel like it has enough good to make it worth even the less expensive $29.99 price tag. If you really want a hockey game, I would say that this is only good for a roster update, and fans who want new should probably look towards the new consoles.

NHL 07 Review

GameSpot
14 September 2006
  • Excerpt: Making its debut on the Xbox 360 this year, EA's NHL franchise finally got off the schneid and delivered a hockey experience that not only compared very favorably to the competition but also forced you to rethink how you play offense in a hockey game, thanks to the brand-new right analog stick-based skill stick. Unfortunately, the Xbox, PlayStation 2, and PC versions of NHL 07 weren't quite so lucky.
  • Pros: Gameplay is still enjoyable, despite its lack of progress, great player models, it's only $29.99 this year
  • Cons: This version of the skill stick smacks of "me too!" desperation, gameplay, graphics, sound, and just about everything else are practically unaltered from last year's game, it's got a roster update, but it isn't an especially accurate one

NHL 07

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: It’s quite likely that a lot of you reading this review have NHL 06 and are trying to decide if you should “upgrade” to NHL 07. Well in short there’s not a lot that’s significantly different in this year’s incarnation of the game. If you like to buy the game every year to have the latest in roster and uniform changes then there’s no reason to hold off on purchasing NHL 07 – it still provides a fast and enjoyable hockey game experience.

The Great Escape

27 July 2003
  • Conclusion: The one thing in stealth titles that you always are needing to know is whether or not the enemy can see you or not. In some games there are radars that show the line of sight, and there have been others with other techniques. Well in The Great Escape it’s not so easy figuring out whether the enemies can see you or not. I felt like a lot of the time I was just hoping to get lucky, and the guards would not see me.

  • Summary: Ambitious and innovative on one hand, while repetitive and inexcusably frustrating on the other. Beautiful graphics and crisp sound effects shadow an underachieving AI and simple and gratuitous ?season mode?. All the emphasis in the game went to a control schematic that you might even find alienating. A decent hockey game, and a good step in the right direction for EA Sports. However, if you?re only going to buy one hockey game for the 2007 year, this shouldn?
