Conclusion: And as if there wasn’t enough to do with just the out-of-the-box gameplay, Trials HD comes with a powerful level editor that enables you to make your own tracks and terrain, which can then be unleashed on Xbox Live for others to try. (Check out the Movies section on game page here for a look at how the level editor works, and you’ll see the incredible potential, including the ability to alter the light and shadow effects in an environment.
Conclusion: A very good simulation that can also cater to those people with simpler tastes as well. The online suffers from a few too many bugs that can cripple a game instantly for me to recommend it. Pick this game up if you’re a fan but otherwise you might want to dip your toe in with a rental first.
Summary: NHL 08 is EA’s latest game in their popular NHL franchise which has been running for over a decade. Thankfully, this isn’t just a lazy game by EA either—they haven’t simply updated the teams and graphics. Instead, they have added a wealth of new features to make the game last longer and to make the experience more realistic. Does it work? It does actually, and pretty damn well too.
Pros: Extremely smooth, Surprising amount of depth for a sports game, A big improvement from NHL 07
Cons: Online is weak, Bugged achievements, Steep learning curve
Conclusion: Hockey is one of the fastest, exciting and brutal sports around. EA have done a good job over the past few years of getting this across in their NHL games but is their much room left for improvement? We take a look at their latest offering NHL 08 to see what has changed from last year.
Excerpt: Vanen tro er EA klar med endnu et ishockeyspil i NHL-serien. Vi har naturligvis iført os skridtbeskytter, skulderpuder og omgh.. glumb.., fna…PØJ, tandbeskytter og er klar til at skøjte spillet igennem på Xbox 360. Sidste sæsons NHL 07 fik gode anmeldelser med på vejen og der var også tilfredshed her på sitet, da Simon havde spillet til test . Derfor var det med en vis spænding, at jeg smed NHL 08 i den brølende box og begav mig ud på isen.
Pros: : Tjaa, spillet gør faktisk, hvad det skal, men mere brøl og lir på lægterne måske.
Cons: : Man skal være stor fan af sporten for rigtig at forstå spillets mange muligheder.
