Great improvement, but still as an avid hockey fan, I still see a lot of things wrong with the game. The graphics and game play have improved a lot. The jerseys are very realistic as is the sound of the game. But, it seems like a tennis match rather than a hockey game. There needs to be more digging out the puck and fighting for the puck, and less goals. When you do get a goal, you should feel like you really earned it, and once in a while, you feel very lucky. Also, there are a lot of frame issues that need to be corrected, as does the hit stick. One of the problems is when you set it on a certain camera angle, the hit stick will not work, and that's just one of many problems. But, like I said, the game has been improved, but it needs to be more like hockey, not just back and forth shooting like in tennis. Like I said, the puck needs to be harder to control and pass, and playing against the computer needs to be more fair, it's either the computer wins too much or the person playing wins too much. Still much better than NHL '07, but I hope the next one will be more like hockey.
