To sum up this game, I really want to know how can NHL2K7 actually be the better game. I can't stand the controls, after playing a couple of games my hands started cramping and then the graphics truly suck!!! IGN says this game has the better graphics for this years crop of hockey games....I certainly beg to differ!! I do not know what happened from one year to the next but all I can say is STAY AWAY!!! Get NHL08 you will be happier you did!!!
Whats wrong with this game people?! "Oh...The controls are different to accomadate the grand new features and there a wittle tough." GET...OVER IT! If you actually look at the layout and play it and TRY to work with them its not that bad! The graphics are spectacular and follow suit along with all the next gen games. Replays are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen, with up close shots that aren't clunky and keep the same quality graphics as the game play. I can confidently say this is a grand succes for the 2k seris. At LEAST rent it here people.
This game is horrible!!! The new Pro Stick feature is too confusing and is not a good feature at all. Now I loved NHL 2K7, I thought it was great, but NHL 2K8 is nothing compared to 2K7. To me NHL 2K7 is better, the online play is good, no lag, but the new features are just too complicateed. I gave it 2 stars cause of the graphics, the graphics are pretty sweet. But I suggest nobody to buy this game.
