    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.

  1. 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.

    Just maintains at the status quo level. True, that's a high level, but it isn't the marked improvement we were hoping for.
  3. With sports games, it all comes down to control, and EA’s NHL 2003 is one of the best in the business.
