NHL 2003 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: NHL2003 doesn’t differ enough from previous years to push the envelope of what diehard hockey fans want. If anything, NHL2003 moves further and further away from a simulation and more so toward the Hitz side of the spectrum. The realistic puck physics and new goalie animations are the best additions, but certainly do not make up for the cheap computer A.I. and the Swiss cheese defense. With the emphasis more on the arcade style of play, multiplayer games are a blast.

  • Conclusion: With NHL 2003, it’s becoming painfully obvious that EA Sports and developer EA Canada either can’t or don’t want to make a strong hockey simulation on a console. While the graphics, on-ice and arena music audio and interface are solid yet marred by a few flaws, the gameplay suffers mightily from lousy artificial intelligence.

  • Conclusion: from the overall score. What accounts for the less-than-perfect score is the extreme amount of tweaking it takes to get everything just the way you like it. At first, I felt the games moved at a plodding pace – there just wasn’t enough action. Fiddling with options available I got the games to move faster by making the players skate faster but as a result the scores went through the roof.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Electronic Arts har på mange måter satt standarden for sportsspill de siste 7-8 åra, med sine utgivelser av alt fra fotball og ishockey, til baseball og golf. En av de mest populære seriene med spill er NHL-serien. Her får du som spiller styre lag fra "National Hockey League" (NHL) gjennom enkle kamper eller hele serier. Spillet kommer ut i ny versjon hvert år, som oftest med noe oppdatert grafikk og lyd.

  • Conclusion: Genug der bösen Worte, auf zu den erfreulichen Seiten des Lebens. Auch der neueste Teil der Reihe ist an sich immer noch ein erstklassiges Eishockeyspiel, welches vor allem im Multiplayer-Modus nahezu unendlichen Spielspaß aufkommen lässt. Fans der Serie greifen sowieso zu, Neueinsteiger sollten ebenfalls einen Blick riskieren. Gelegentliche Zocker, die jedoch schon im Besitz des Vorgängers sind, sollten von einem Kauf absehen.
