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.

  • Excerpt: Denne udgivelse kommer ikke ligefrem bag på nogen. I ti år har EA Sports’ titler plaget nationer og bragt glæde til hungrende sportsentusiaster. Serierne har selvfølgelig haft deres op- og nedture, men det ser ud som om, at både NHL, NBA, NFL og Fifa serierne er ved at falde på plads. Samtidig forventer man dog som fan, at man hvert år får introduceret en række forbedringer.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Så er den tid på året kommet, hvor du skal have skøjterne spændt på, staven fundet frem fra gemmerne og gøre klar til at slagskyde pucken i modstanderens mål med 160 km/t. Det er naturligvis den tid på året, hvor den årlige NHL udgivelse er landet, og GameSector.dk er skøjtet en tur ud på banen for at se hvordan det står til i år.
