    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. PC Zone UK

    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. PC Format

    The goals are satisfying, but there's nothing new. [Dec 2006, p.108]
  5. Pelit (Finland)

    The PC version has not much going for it. There are a few improvements over the previous version, and the old sins are all there. Still looks good, though. [Oct 2006]

I've given up on these hopeless bunch of jerks. Their games are absolute BS! Full Review »

    Well, it is maybe the worst NHL ever. Only reason to buy this is that you see your own eyes how worst it is.
