5.0 out of 5 stars The best hockey game gets a little better October 17, 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing EA Sport's NHL series from 1993 and every year been dissapointed by every next release. The only thing that seems to get better each year is the graphics and animations with core features like realism, AI and gameplay taking a back seat on the project.

Last year I was happy to find out about 2K Sports and their NHL2K series and had to give it a try. I was surprised by the realism and 'feel' the game had which was 10 times better than all the EA games put together.

NHL2K7 and now 2K8 have been updated exclusively for the XBox 360 and the graphics are absolutely stunning, especially in 720/1080 resolution. The new goalie AI in the game gives 2K8 the title of the most realistic goaltending in hockey gaming history (a big letdown in all hockey games), a new faceoff system and some added animations and other tweaks and enhancements make this game a solid overall performer.

The new control system takes a while to getting used to but ultimately it leads to more productive hockey with greater choice. One can always go back to the old control system if thew new system is too daunting.

One of my favourite things I like about this game is that you can modify absolutely any setting in the game - from the frequency of the back glass breaking from slapshots, to penalty frequency down to the specific penalty, i.e hooking, elbowing, penalty shots etc. Having all these settings available lets you tweak the game in places you would feel it is unrealistic.

The franchise and online options are comprehensive, which will keep you managing your team well into the release of NHL2K9.

EA Sports NHL Series still has a long way to go with regards to gameplay compared to the 2K series. Its debatable whose graphics are better, many would say EA, but of course your graphics are going to be better if your whole programming team focuses on making the game look better instead of improving on the game features that really matter.

4.0 out of 5 stars I may be done with EA sports November 18, 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Slightly better on XBOX 360 vs PS3, but both are great. Frame rate, loading time, graphics... better on XBOX 360. No doubt about it. Either way its a great game. I have it for PS3 but downloaded the 360 demo on XBOX Live. I've played NHL 08... I hate it, and that's no exaggeration. I've hated most of the EA series hockey games. NHL 93-95 are still the best. Compared to NHL 08, 2k8s animations are more fluid, more realistic. So what if the game is not a dead-on simulation. Its fun... and once you get used to them the controls are much more satisfying than EAs.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great sports title. May 31, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm rating this a bit late, but it still needs to be reviewed. I believe the game is great, but it faults in a few areas; such as main anvigation. It has a overly complex main menu to enter seasons and skrimiges. The practice mode( to improve your team) is a little weak as well. Probably unnecessary too. The gameplay is complex. If you love button masher games you'll love this. Combos and slap shots require a number of buttons to be hit in order to perform.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best gameplay there is August 8, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I definitely recommend you buy this game. It's so much worth the couple of dollars you have to pay. The rosters are out of date, and EA's game has advanced a lot, but this still, BY FAR, has the best gameplay on any next-gen hockey game. Not to mention the textures and arenas are fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Depth of Gameplay and Control May 2, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played both this game (NHL 2K8) and NHL 08 from EA...I think this one takes the blue ribbon. While NHL 08 graphics are just slightly better, the difference is minor and the gameplay makes up for it in large measure.

The control the prostick gives you over handling the puck is the best I have seen in a hockey game. It took a little bit to get used to the controls, because I have been so used to EA's typically uniform controls over all it games. After a few games, I got the hang of it and it is some much easier to use... And for those that like the classic controls, they are still available in NHL 2K8.

The depth of franchise mode is nice, including its more realistic contract and trade structure. There does seem to be a minor flaw in the trade structure at times. You will be contacted by a team for a potential trade they are interested in, but when you go to execute the trade it sometimes is rejected. Weird!!

Overall, love this game. Its addicting and a blast to play.
