Summary: This is a great game. My Dad walked in and thought it was a real game! That is how good the graphics are. This game is for people that love hockey and actually know a team! You can make a goalie or skater and make it to look like yourself (Or your uncles). This is a great game!!!!!!
Summary: Well i got an Xbox 360 Monday so i was just looking for a random cheap game to try out. I went to Gamestop and found this game. I thought eh, it's just gonna be like the games on the PS2. Turns out, i was certainly wrong. The graphics are amazing. The best mode in my opinion is goalie mode. So much fun and the controls are easy to learn. Also on goalie mode, you can skate to the bench and play as a single person on the ice when your team pulls their goalie.
Summary: NHL 08 is a great improvement on the already good NHL 07. NHL 08 brings back the thumbstick control which allows for much better control and makes it easier to do what you want to do with the player. The skating dynamics in the game are amazing and allow players to make sharp turns easily and control the player better. The goalies in NHL 08 are more realistic in that they don't allow nearly as many "glitch" goals and seem to have realistic hot and cold streaks.
Conclusion: NHL 08 is much better than 07. The graphics of the players look much more realistic and less 'cartoon-like' than 07. When you create a team although the logos and names are limited the customisation of the strips and pads of the keeper is just mind blowing! These are just two of the reasons that this game is better than a 07. Its a must buy!
Conclusion: The new 08 is a better game over last years because is fixes some of the flaws it had, its a slower game too which seems more relistic. They've added some online features too add to the lifespan and not to mention the graphics which seem a little better.If you love ice hockey you will love this! I LOVE THIS GAME!!
Conclusion: This game is definitley worth the money, fantastic gameplay, very realistic, and incredibly in-depth. I got this today and cant stop playing it. I have had no problems thus far with crashing. I have owned every EA Sports NHL game since 1995 and they keep getting better every year. If your a die hard fan you will not be disappointed, new rosters, jerseys etc make this a very realistic experience, the in game commentary is brilliant too and the detail of players and their...
Conclusion: Simply outstanding great if you don't fancy shelling out 40 quid for the nhl 09, couldn't resist for a tenner, and as for lockup issues and freezing i had the same problem but due to the new new x-box experience i installed the game directly to the hard drive and have had no problems yet.
