NHL 2k8 is trapped in the last-gen. Last-gen graphics, last-gen controls, last-gen gameplay. Not to say the game doesn't do anything right. The puck physics are great, and the animations look good, but they have been good for the past 4 years. The "new" ProStick (which is a rip-off of EA's skill stick) is poor at best. Moving the passing and shooting to the LB&RB didn't work and 2k needs to do away with the LT modifier button. If you need a modifier button YOUR GAME IS TO HARD TO PLAY! Online play is the same as last year, however the frame rate does dip a bit when playing online.

In the end, if you want a hockey game this year, get NHL 08. NHL 2k8 took 2 steps backwards this year.
