Not 07, but worth renting

Every year I get both hockey games, EA and 2k. This year EA (only for PS2) really came through with a great game but scoring was way too easy. 2K7 is much more challenging with all of the great sliders to customize game play.

A fun hockey game.
I'd have given this an 8, maybe a 9 if I hadn't played NHL2K6 for Xbox 360. 2K6 is actually better than 2K7 on 360 as well! Simply because the movements are so lifelike, smooth, and things happen in the game that don't in other games.. like the way they trip and fall or get checked, etc.

Back to this game, it's great, smooth, good graphics, but some flaws and imperfections, as well as the variety of falls and trips that occur in 2K6 for the 360.

Almost Great but Utterly Dissapointing

This game looks great and is fun to play. Unfortunately the following issues greatly detracts:

1. Too many menus. They could have consolidated the menus into a more user friendly system. For instance, when loading a season, you need to load the season, profile, and settings. Many of the disparate menus have similar settings, why not consolidate for better navigation? It's easier to navigate the 9-11 report.

2. FREEZING. I can no longer finish a game and save my season. When the game is over, it asks to save an updated profile and then freezes without exception. OUCH. Didn't 2K do QA and if so, why the egregious release?? Just in case you're wondering, this is not an isolated issues. I have read numerous online posts about the freezing issue and my local EB games told me they would take the game back when they normally wouldn't because of the amount of complaints they have received about this particular issue.

As I said, I the game looks great and plays great, but 100 multiplied by 0 is still 0....
