  1. One of the better games from the consistently recommended franchise. [Dec 2007, p.80]
  2. A perfectly adequate console port. [Nov 2007, p.84]
  3. Give it a go when it's come down in price if you're desperate to have the new rosters, otherwise stick with 07. [Nov 2007, p.56]
  4. Somewhat tellingly, there isn’t much more to say about NHL 08 – it’s a very good game, but the genre’s moved on and once again PC gamers haven’t been given the chance to see how.
  5. Still, NHL 08 manages to be an entertaining e adequate ice hockey game, and will remain as a valid choice for PC players who can’t afford the alternatives available in next-gen consoles.
  6. 61
    A pretty average affair. Fun can be had if you’re really into your hockey, but there are better games to choose from.
  7. NHL 08 offers up a few control tweaks and minimal updates to the dynasty mode, but that's about it.
  8. EA Sports has once again screwed PC owners over with a cut-rate edition of one of its big fall sports games, and NHL 08 is even more of a disappointment than its football and golf comrades. [Holiday 2007, p.83]
