  • Summary: NHK2K8 is a fantastic simulation with deep game play modes. Unfortunately none of this matters when you factor in the fact that the new control scheme cripples a lot of the fun and excitement that could be found from previous years in the series. Hopefully next year the team refines the ProStick mechanic, 2K Sports typically is on cue when it comes to making sports titles right, and I suppose everybody, including developers make mistakes, otherwise skate away from this...
  • Pros: Tons of modes, visually an improvement over last year.
  • Cons: The new control scheme is the biggest feature this year and it sucks.

  • Summary: Hockey returns for the 2008 season, but the 2K series is in danger of missing the playoffs this year.
  • Pros: Best general manager simulation on the market with full CBA rules; crease control works great; lots of extras and unlockables for the hockey nut; online play is smooth and lag free.
  • Cons: New controls are a mess; uneven graphics and presentation; two speed burst buttons suck most of the challenge out of the game; awkward camera angles; purely arcade style take on the sport, with way too much checking; long load times.

  • Conclusion: Keen to push forwards and revolutionise control, NHL 2K8 bafflingly manages to take a step backwards over previous incarnations. It�s still fun enough but it�s a shame, as with a little more time to perfect its core ideas, this could have been great. The franchise isn�t going anywhere though, so it�s still one to watch out for a few more years yet.

  • Conclusion: Bilan assez mitigé pour ce NHL 2K8. Si les sensations de glisse et de jeu sont tout bonnement excellentes, au même titre que l’animation, le jeu est visuellement décevant et les problèmes de jouabilité empoisonneront vos premières heures de jeu. Paradoxalement, il n’est pas facile de dire qui de NHL 08 ou NHL 2K8 remporte la palme cette année. Le premier donne plus dans le « bling bling », avec des effets monstrueux et une ambiance du tonnerre.
  • Pros: En français, Nombreux modes, Mises en jeu réalistes, Animation, Sensation de glisse, Style de jeu customisable, Rapide et agréable à jouer
  • Cons: Chargements, Commentaires, Graphismes et modélisation décevants, Quelques bugs, Jouabilité étrangement complexe
