Very Good

Great Game Overall

In NHL 08, there are all new controls that allow you to deke in any direction, slapshot, or wristshot, all with the right stick. This is much better than the x button for a pass and square for a shot. Also, being able to play AHL games in your dynasty allows you to know which of your prospects are good and which aren't good. However, your team's goalie can make dumb mistakes and allow a puck through the five hole when he should have easily gotten it, and if the AI Learning is too high then it is impossible to score. I had the AI Learning all the way up and after 4 or 5 games I got shut out 3 games in a row and lost by a lot.

Once you get past the no speed burst, and work on your shooting a little, this game really rocks! I found that in create player mode you can work on your shooting skills when trying out various equipment, that really helps. Great game!
