    You know this gameplay: There’s been a lot of excellent tuning but no mammoth overhauls.
  2. What accounts for the less-than-perfect score is the extreme amount of tweaking it takes to get everything just the way you like it.
  3. 87
    Just maintains at the status quo level. True, that's a high level, but it isn't the marked improvement we were hoping for.

    if you want real hockey i suggest nhl 2k3. if you want arcade action, i suggest nhl hitz 20-03. both are far better games. nhl 2003 is is somewhere in between arcade and simulation. there's a few improvements over 2002, but there's also a few things that got worse. overall it's a highly disappointing title.
