This game was a major disappointment to me. I enjoy hockey games but found this one to have complicated controls and made game play more of a fumble with buttons. There are many different game play modes and they do not offer a distinct advantage. The AI did seem to really intelligent for the opponent but was not as great for the team mates. The graphics were not as good as I expect from a 360. This game was hard to get into even when playing the franchise mode, I did not feel like it was my team. Franchise mode, had a lot of options but the setup of your franchise takes hours to do properly. Overall, this game was not worth my time and I think you will find out the same.

Ive been a huge NHL2K fan but.... After this year i am 100% sold to NHL 2007. The graphics on 2K7 are like seeing PS2 on the 360. They are horrible. They just got lazy!! I played the game for like 1 hour and it never got better. I bought NHL 2007 because I was so impressed. I would not recccomend this game to anyone.
This game is a straight arcade game. If you don't want to play realistic hockey, and just want to smash people around this game is really good at that. NHL 07 had it problems, but it's way more realistic, and life like, then 2k7. The goalie controls are awesome, and the physics of hitting seemed better then EA (until you notice the faults), but the lack of the "skill stick", and the horrible horrible horrible graphics smash that into the ground as soon as you realize the that the people who made 2k7 are weekend hockey fans, who just watch it for the hitting. If EA, and 2k7 got together they would make the best sports games ever. But until then we're stuck with two sub par hockey games. Both faulting greatly in seemingly simple categories.
