nhl's graphics are good but could be better. The players look good but when you create your own their is only so much you can do. also sometimes it's impossible to get a breakaway goal.anyone can get knocked over. if you create your own team the game only has about 20 logo's. when you create a goalie you can't get many nice pads or helmets. one other thing you do to score is shoot on net constantly and one timers.
I want 2 get this game
nhl 08 will be the best hockey video game ever and I know because I've seen all the previews,gameplays & so on in this new game you can practicaly do anything you want, you can go crazy with this game.yay!
Surely better then NHL 07
'07 was a horrible game. They changed the controls like mad.I played '07 3 times and now it's collecting dust. I play '06 like crazy still. Hopefully '08 will have improved on their online play as the servers were horrible trying to connect with people.Hopefully they have also increased the number of characters being used when making a Persona.
I think NHL 07 was a great game but i did not like when they came out with it for 360 they completely changed the controls for the 360 and camera angles it was not the same game played for playstation 2 i look forward to seeing if Ea Sports will go back to the old style with the right anelog stick being used for passing or if it will be for shooting like 360
the game itself
To make this game really fantastic why not put in a mode like superstar in madden and road to the show in mlb the show it would make it a lot longer and funner gameplay experience plus it would really increase sales!
I Don't Know What 2 Choose
NHL 08 hopefully will be a good game. The graphics hopefully will be better than last year, and that you wouldn't go by the defense so easily, because i did difficulty on NHL 08, and i was still scoring 20 goals. these are the 3 things i would like 2 see in NHL 08: 1. Crowd wouldn't be in another world. 2. Defense would be harder. 3. There would be the real Sabres Uniforms and that all the rosters would be updated. Now 2 2k8, even though the graphics aren't that great, and the checking, the defense is tough 2 get around and the game is challenging. Also you might be getting the better game for the better price. So hopefully i will make the right descision on the game that i want to buy.
nhl07 wasnt that good it was to easy for me i want a game thats more chalenging to play like 08 but we wwill just have to see if it is good and better graphics and more chalenging!
Need Career mode
I really want them to make career mode. MLB has it, NFL has it why can't NHL have it. You get drafted then you can play your career in ahl and then nhl. it would really help the game
Better be better than 07
this game better be good because 07 wasn't good at all. so many careless mistakes on 07. I just found out that when i played against the flyers on 07 they called nittymaki, cam ward. They better step it up with this game.
you know, maybe I would buy NHL 08 if it weren't so easy, if i didn't win all the games by 13 goals it would be fun. so thats why I sold 07 and went and got 2k7, I may give up graphics, but at least it's some what of a challenge, make it harder and I'll buy
