    Overall a pretty solid game. I would like to see some changes made though. It would be nice to have some more game play sliders, such as the ability to tweak the goalies more. The AI on defense is lacking in some aspects too, many times I have seen players chase to a spot the puck used to be, leaving a clear path in the slot for the opposition...it's a load of fun to play Overall a pretty solid game.

    There is no reason to buy this game if you own NHL06. I think the graphics actually look fuzzier than last years release and the on ice sound (always a high point of this franchise) has definitely taken a leap backwards. Is it me or does it seem that every EA Sports sim have hall of fame rosters but this one? People who don't like the cliched commentary can do what I do....turn it There is no reason to buy this game if you own NHL06.

It does work with Vista though. 06 worked once then never started again. If you can live without the roster updates, wait until next year. Collapse

    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.
  2. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the versions of NHL 07 not made for the next generation of consoles offer little in the way of new content.
  3. 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.
