  1. A sturdy series well rethought, but it needs a gamepad. [Dec 2006, p.114]

    The controls are tight, especially shooting, if you have a USB control pad. Ditch the keyboard. We would like to see the checking system tweaked a bit so players aren't so magnetic. Great puck physics make for exciting, organic goal scoring.
  3. If you've got the time to master it, there is, as ever, about a year's worth of play to be had. [Dec 2006, p.99]
  4. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the versions of NHL 07 not made for the next generation of consoles offer little in the way of new content.
  5. While we aren’t impressed with the changes (or lack thereof), with the price reduced to $29.99, current-gen gamers are still getting a great game, and for half the price of the 360 version.
  6. The action can be hard to follow, but fans will appreciate the realism.
  7. 40
    Even at $30, NHL 07 on the PC is overpriced. It's a budget title, plain and simple, almost exactly like last year's game with a minimal effort to include the new Skill Stick.
