Summary: This game is very cool. It has good graphics for a regular Xbox. In the game you are able to fight (fist fight) the opposite team. It is hard to win the fist fight but it is still fun. You are able to make up your own team. You can choose the name, the colors of the team's outfit's, the horn sounds that are after each quarter and when you make a goal, and the players for the team. You can go on the options and change the game so that there are no penalties.
Summary: Like the other review, this is a great game to play but there is no Xbox live at all. The World cup of Hocke does make up for it but the thing is, this has now become a collector's item for any haockey fan because the 2004-2005 NHL hockey season did not play due to a lockout/strike. Highly suggest picking this up and having in your collection.
Summary: This version of NHL 2005 is just as good as all the rest in the series, probbably slightly better. Its been a little refined, the graphics look slightly better and the same quality of game play that made this the best hockey game on the planet still exists, however it has one drawback, this game is only playable against other people in the USA version, us poor brits diddnt get that feature.
