Summary: I am of the opinion that they haven't made a really good hockey game since NHL hockey for Sega Genesis. Yes, the graphics have gotten better and they have put some cool things into recent games. But the fun factor has diminished since Sega.
Summary: I can't believe it's happened again... even after I said I wasn't going to do it - I've gone out and purchased NHL 2K7 after buying NHL 07. Now, after before anyone here thinks I'm going to glorify 2K and put down the EA series I must step in and say both titles definitely have their shortcomings.
Summary: I am getting a little too old for video games so this is a perfect game for me -- just turn it on, pick random teams and play. The gameplay, camera angles and such are just easy enough to pick up and play. If you don't want to invest tons of time into a game, this is perfect for you.
Summary: I live, eat, and breathe hockey so it's safe to say I've played almost every hockey game that's ever come out, all the way back to the early days of hockey on the original Nintendo (the fat dude, the skinny dude, and the average dude... remember those guys?).
Summary: NHL 2K7 is alot of fun! The graphics are smooth with great online play. Various modes of hockey are available to play in, i.e. pond hockey, mini rink, etc. I own EA NHL 07 as well , however; offensive and defensive strategies can be planned better and executed in 2K7.
Summary: If you love this series like I do, than buy the game. Its improved on a lot of things from last years release. Which mind you a lot of people said was buggy. The graphics aren't next gen but who cares. If you aren't a die hard must have perfect graphics, this games for you.
Excerpt: his is a fast paced game which is a lot of fun to play as the action is pretty much relentless with some excellent game play. For those who have played a previous version of this ice hockey franchise then the game play will be very familiar and the controls have not changed, you are able to sequence...
Excerpt: Awesome game overall compared to the shoddy EA sports version. However the game can be very annoying and the hndling and gameplay can become very repetetive and tedious. The way that whenever you skate with the puck the computer players just body check you off the puck unless you immediately pass...
Summary: This game is pretty dam good; you can safely ignore the previous reviewers comments. The only problem is that it is too in depth, I have no idea what all the rules are in hockey but I'm learning, slowly.
