EA Sports NHL 08 is far better than the past two seasons efforts. One of the first things you will notice is that it does present itself a lot like 06 and 07 in terms of graphics and audio. However, the players move much more realistic and true to how certain players act and play the game. Goalies are MUCH improved as is the overall gameplay. Playing on the difficuly level is actually challenging and fun. Those wanting a more hockey sim from EA Sports will be rather pleased with this game (I have played 10 minute periods on difficult and average scores like 4-1, 3-2; with under 40 shots on goal for and under 20 against. Amazing saves and body checks that are totally realistic--not a hitting frenzy as in the past).

There are a few problems which shouldn't really hurt the game overall. Rosters on the NHL teams are a little old (i.e.Ranger fans will still see Cullen and Ortmeyer on the team). However, major signings and deals over the summer are in this game. Missing a rookie or two from your lineup? That may not be a problem. NHL 08 packs a full AHL league and rosters as you can call up anyone (and I mean anyone) and place them on your active roster (if your rookie played at least one game in the AHL last season, then you will find him on the AHL team). The only other issue with this years hockey release is that the game tends to lag and bog down when there is too much action in front of the net at one time--it's a noticable, but a minor flaw.

The rest of the game will feel familiar as most of the new programming went to the next generation systems. Menu options have been simplified greatly and the music is more enjoyable to listen to.

NHL 08

It was the most excited I had been for a game in a really long time. They were finally adding the AHL and you could develop a minor league system. I had read a lot of reviews and they all said basically the same thing: This game is the best hockey game they had ever played. The perfect amalgamation between a hockey sim and an arcade game. The movement was ultra realistic and the puck physics were incredible. It was the ultimate hockey game.
I got the game delivered at work and had to wait until I got home to play. I felt like I was 15 years old, counting the train stops until I got to my stop. The first thing I was going to do was play a game, as the Flyers, and annihilate the Rangers. Then I was going to start a dynasty and just play around with the minor leagues, call people up, reassign others. Then I got home and opened the game. When I got to the main menu I was a little surprised. I thought I had read that you could start a user profile, but couldn't find the option anywhere. Well, no big deal. A little weird though. So I played a game. It seemed a lot like I was playing 07 (or even 06). Shooting with the stick was kind of cool, I guess, but other than that, the game didn't seem that different. Certainly not the greatest hockey game ever. But I figured it would be ok, since the thing I was most excited about was the minor league system and the ability to develop players within a dynasty. So I started my dynasty. As soon as I got to the player management, I found I only had three people on my minor league team. That can't be right. So I got out of the dynasty and went to the roster manager in the main menu.

I must confess, the last NHL game I picked up before this one was 2004, so there may be some features I bring up that were also in previous years which I am unaware of. For the most part, NHL 2008 is fun and addictive, and there are no other NHL games that compare. I was only going to write a three star review, but most of the gameplay issues go away in multiplayer mode.

I find this game to be very similar to past years, with some different things here and there, but I was able to pick up the controller and start playing it with no problems. Some reviewers complained of slow-down's in front of the net, and while this does occur it is quite rare. There are also some slow-down's when you dump the puck down ice, but this has only happened a couple times to me. Something new to me is the ability to initiate a fight yourself at just about anytime you would like. I have also seen fights change the momentum of games. While I knew 2008 wouldn't be much different than past years, I knew I wanted to play with guys like Crosby and Ovechkin, which is a major reason for purchasing this game.

There are a handful of issues I have with the gameplay and hopefully they will be changed in future years or improve on PS3. First and foremost, is the issue with the shooting. Shooting and scoring are extremely difficult. I use manual shooting, which the game defaults to. Involved in the shooting is a bullseye that moves around the net before you release the button to aim your shot. The only problem is that even when aiming in this way, the puck misses the net at least 50% of the time. This occurs from all distances and angles, and even in situations where it really should not, such as Sidney Crosby in the crease taking a wrist shot that misses the net.
