Okay this game might not be "NEXT-GEN", but it does what it was intended to do. Which if you didn't know was to please hockey fans. I don't even like hockey in fact I despise it, but this game was enjoyable. It never froze, it played smooth, and had tight controls. Don't listen too these guys who gave it a 1, it's about a 6.5-7. Give it a shot, who knows maybe you'll score big.

Overall I think Hockey 2K6 is a very good game. It's fast, fun , and very much a sim. The only downside is that this game is too much like the current console experience. I was expecting to see a tremendous leap in graphics but sadly the graphics are only marginally better than the XBOX counterpart. While graphics are not the only part of the game I expect and demand that any and all games on the 360 blow me away in the graphics and presentation department. That being said, this is your only hockey choice for the 360 this year and if you are a serious hockey fan this game is a very entertaining game.
