Product Description

Use every skill in your arsenal to experience the explosive power of hockey with NHL 08. Combine the elements of power, speed, and finesse like never before as you develop from an up and coming player into an electrifying NHL superstar. Use the enhanced Skill Stick to shoot anywhere on net, deke past opponents, or check rivals into the boards as you become the league's most dominant player. With stunning gameplay graphics, an improved deking system and sweet spot shooting, and innovative gameplay features, no game is ever the same with NHL 08.

  • Skill Stick Moments—The Skill Stick gave you the power to deke the goalie in NHL 07, now you can own the 1-on-1 matchup and undress opposing defensemen with complete control of the puck. Tap the puck into space and between a defender's legs to walk around him. Once you're all alone in front, improved stick handling and shooting accuracy gives you the toolset to beat your goaltender for that decisive goal.
  • On the Fly AI—Dynamic AI adjusts to your every move on offense and defense, challenging even the most skilled hockey players. The intelligent CPU scouts your tendencies like a coach and makes the necessary adjustments to shut down your money plays, forcing you to adjust your style of play.
  • Create Custom Plays—Take any team into Practice mode and train them to run custom rush and in-zone plays in-game. Do you want your team to run cycle plays down low or feed the point for a one-timer? Record the exact movements of each player and watch as the AIexecutes them during gameplay.
  • All-New Skating Engine—New analog speed control gives you the variance needed to glide into the zone with control or get a burst of speed to step up on a defender. With new skating animations and responsiveness, you have the control to perform crossovers to maintain speed or carve tight turns for an immediate change in direction.

This is a great game. My Dad walked in and thought it was a real game! That is how good the graphics are. This game is for people that love hockey and actually know a team! You can make a goalie or skater and make it to look like yourself (Or your uncles). This is a great game!!!!!!

Absolutely Amazing

Well i got an Xbox 360 Monday so i was just looking for a random cheap game to try out. I went to Gamestop and found this game. I thought eh, it's just gonna be like the games on the PS2. Turns out, i was certainly wrong. The graphics are amazing. The best mode in my opinion is goalie mode. So much fun and the controls are easy to learn. Also on goalie mode, you can skate to the bench and play as a single person on the ice when your team pulls their goalie. Awesome game for cheap. Love, Love, Love it.

Best Hockey Game Ever

NHL 08 is a great improvement on the already good NHL 07. NHL 08 brings back the thumbstick control which allows for much better control and makes it easier to do what you want to do with the player. The skating dynamics in the game are amazing and allow players to make sharp turns easily and control the player better. The goalies in NHL 08 are more realistic in that they don't allow nearly as many "glitch" goals and seem to have realistic hot and cold streaks. The amount of online modes are impressive. My favorite online mode is the My League function which allows you to create your own league and invite friends to play in your league. The amount of teams is impressive too. The game has every NHL team as well as AHL, International, and two European league. All of the jerseys are the new RBK jerseys and look amazing. As a hockey player, I will say that there are a few problems with the game. For one, pass interceptions are inconsistent. It should be easier to prevent passes from the corner to the front of the net. Another problem I see with the game is the hit stick. It seems very inconsistent and just plain doesn't work sometimes. Overall an amazing game. Best Hockey video game ever made.

Great Improvement

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.
