Summary: Im not a real big 2K guy, as I usually get the EA Sports games, but I had alot of fun playing this. And theres an easy 750+ points for your gamerscore. I it's an older model now, but still worth 1000 gamerpoints, and still lots of fun.
Good game, I don't watch Hockey but I like to play it.

Summary: This is a great multiplayer game. The fights are pretty lame, but it is alot of fun. My hand hurts so bad after just one game when competing w/ my friends. For $7 bucks shipped it was a great deal. Why pay $59 for NHL 08 when it never really improves or changes much from the last year, so $7 or $8 bucks for NHL 07 was a good deal..
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. I'm speaking specifically of the gameplay here and not necessarily the front office side of the game, which is cool. But, to be a truly great hockey game, you need a good balance of realism, graphics, and smoothness.
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. This year EA has come out with a huge innovation with their new (and well received) Skill Stick control scheme. I love every goal I've ever scored in that game.
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 like hockey. No, I really like hockey. It's a little scary. Especially when the rinks aren't flooded, and I don't get to skate. That's when I have to sit down and play vicariously through a bunch of little pixelated representations of my favorite NHL players. Luckily, NHL 2k7 is a heck of a game, packed with great Old-Time Hockey unlockables, and driven by an intuitive control scheme.
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?). If there's one thing that bothers me with each season's new title is the attempt at making the game feel "more natural" and in doing so other key aspects of the game fall short or are just emitted.
