Summary: Maybe it's just me, but the AI on the player's team seems to be a couple notches lower than on the computer's. This is especially true for penalties and goalies. Most often, there seems to be 5-6 penalties against AI controlled players on the human's team in a game with 10 minute periods, and at most 1 on the computer's side. The goalie AI is just weak, like it's assumed that the player will use the rediculously easy goalie control feature.
Summary: WARNING: This is NOT a next-gen console game, far from it. Microsoft is busy creating patches to play "old" games from the original Xbox on the 360...Take2 Interactive beat them to the punch, packaged the game for the 360, and raised the price by $40. By no means does this showcase any sort of graphic capabilities of the 360. In fact, it actually looks worse in high def.
Summary: This game was so disappointing I've nearly broken the disc on a few occasions. 2K sports in general do not treat their games the same way EA sports does. The players in this game hardly resemble the real players. The menu screen is so complicated and difficult to figure out. There are constant glitches in the game that make things frustrating. They have only created 3 AI to be in the audience.
Summary: Nothing like spending hours designing players, setting up a season mode and then find out the game freezes at the end of every game when you go to save. There is no reason to even try season mode since you will not be able to progress. I thought this was an individual game problem...but I had the same problem with another NHL 2K6 on the normal xbox game system.
Summary: I was excited to find out that a hockey game would be released on opening day. Only to be extremely disappointed. I purchased it that night and returned it by noon the next day. This gam can not even compare to EA games. The graphics on this game is horrible. If you have a Niendo 64 the graphics on that hockey game is 10 times better. During gameplay the puck is highlighted and is huge. Dont let the box pictures fool you. Nowhere are the graphics that good.
Excerpt: Please note this has been published on my blog leedavidmatthews.wordpress.com and at a gaming site i work for too.... Sports games have been the most numerous titles to grace the next-generation Xbox 360. We've had football, golf, basketball, american football and now we have a next-generation Ice Hockey game. With Basketball 2K6 already released we were expecting this new title to be graphically superb, sadly we were greatly disappointed.
Summary: Liebe User, früh am heutigen Morgen melde ich mich mit einem neuen Bericht aus dem Xbox-Sektor zurück. Die Rede ist diesemal wieder von einem Spiel, genauer von dem 2k Sports NHL 2k6. Warum dieses Spiel begehrt ist, erfahrt ihr im Bericht: Spiel Bei diesem Spiel kann man mit Mannschaften aus der amerikanischen Eishockeyliga, der NHL [National Hockey Association] spielen und ganze Saison's - immerhin bis zu 100 Spiele - spielen.
