I'm a huge hockey fan and the EA NHL series on the genesis was what made me the pathetically huge gamer I am today.

With all the exclusive rights garbage out there in sports games, this years hockey titles prove why its bad for games. Not because the hockey games are bag, buy because we have a choice and both choices are good. for me though, its NHL07 by EA. Finally hockey games are fresh and fun again. Thanks to the innovation of the skill stick. Anyone who bashes the skill stick is either a 2K fan boy or just hasn't given it time.

you never have to touch the face buttons on the controller again. (trust me, 2K will copy this next year). Everything just feels right. Anyone who plays hockey will tell you this game feels genuine.

Franchise is deep, complete with the CBA, everything you would expect. However the on line is as bare bones as it can be, Its time for EA to step up on the on line department.

Finally I have to say thanks to the NHL and NHLPA for turning down both EA and 2K for the rights to the NHL, we all win.

Poor AI, Poor puck physics, does not resemble the greatest game. Give EA credit for trying something new ie left stick - right stick control but it Bombs. They do have cool commercials but very misleading. The shootout is cool but.......... 2K7 8.5 +++
