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.
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 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.
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?).
