Great game

9 February 2011
  • Summary: only problem is the controls are hard to get use to. but thats it. Also you have to unlock the hockey teams in career, which I think is dumb. Just a great game though.

NHL 2008

asanaparada, Ebay
2 December 2010
  • Summary: Great improvement over last years game, game play has been improved by leaps and bounds. s previously mentioned, NHL 07 was a decent title, but EACA was trying to reinvent the wheel on a tight schedule. The analog control scheme was quickly adopted by players, but it wasn’t altogether technically sound and it wasn’t as effective as gamers thought it would be at shredding defenses. Throw in a one-speed (fast) skating system, dumb-as-rocks A.I.

Cheap and Fun

  • Summary: Games extremely cheap. Xbox play is simple and fun for the price. Can play on xbox live with friends but cann't invite them to a game, but since no one plays live it's easy to be pared with them through xbox live randomization. Great bang for the Buck!

Skeptical at first

KJS, Amazon
7 January 2010
  • Summary: I have to admit that I was skeptical of the new controls at first. I've been playing hockey games for years, and my muscle memory/hand-eye-coordination don't take too kindly to change. But, change is the future, so I decided to embrace it. Yes, it takes a few games to get the new controls down, but I do like them now. They are more natural...shooting with the right thumbstick is like controlling a miniature hockey stick.

  • Conclusion: This is a solid, fun "excitebike"-style game with a great custom track editor and rag-doll physics that make for hilariously morbid wipe-outs. Unfortunately this game is also badly crippled in a few important ways: 1. The inability to publicly share custom tracks (they can only be shared with friends). This severely limits the replay value of the game. This could (and desperately should) be fixed with a future update to the game. (Developers, are you listening?) 2.

Great hockey experience

Benjamin Miraski "fxdirect", Amazon
5 March 2009
  • Summary: It has been a while since I have played sports games, but NHL 08 definitely has all the great things I remember about playing hockey back when the numbers after NHL started with a 9. The game play is great, the computer is not a total pushover, and the real players are there. Plus now I have so much control over my team and franchise, the experience is even better.

  • Summary: great control, i didn't get into the skill stick, but the old skool controls work as well as they always have. the online league option is also great. no complaints, and i would definitely pick this one up, if you're into hockey games.
