Summary: Definitely the most fun hockey game to play, if you just want to sit down and play a game or two. If you are looking to manage your team, chemistry, rosters, trade buy and sell, etc... go for NHL 2K7. The Dynasty mode is seriously lacking and is showing it's age as being about as sophisticated as it was 5 years ago. The music is incredibly irritating, just like 2K7. Though in 2K7 you can select your own soundtrack.
the elder statesman of console hockey ages gracefully
16 September 2006
Summary: most of us cut our teeth on NHL Hockey for Sega Genesis back in the day, (okay, maybe Ice Hockey or Blades Of Steel on 8-bit NES) and EA's juggernaut has been lumbering forwards (sometimes sideways, rarely backwards) ever since. as gamers face another change of seasons and another "next-gen" console war, we're faced with the last few iterations on the current Xbox/PS2. now the current gen of NHL has been fairly well maligned, and since 2003 properly so.
