    Though the Wayne vs. Wayne mode is an interesting, if not disturbing, idea, it’s not enough to justify a purchase for most hockey fans.

    Gretzky '06 piles up some new features, does a better job of tracking franchise info, and has the AHL license for minor-league teams. It does not, however, come close to equaling the on-ice fun of "NHL 2k6" or "NHL '06."
  3. A buggy mess that should be avoided in favor of "NHL 2K6" or "NHL 06." [Dec 2005, p.115]

    I have played all 3 Hockey Games produced this year, and I was very disapointed with Gretzky NHL 06. While the Minor Leagues showed Great I have played all 3 Hockey Games produced this year, and I was very disapointed with Gretzky NHL 06. While the Minor Leagues showed Great Signs, the gameplay was lackluster, and the Franchise isn't much is depth. The Wayne vs. Wayne Mode might be entertaining, but all the popups during the game can make someone like me throw the controller. Why is the Game lackluster? The fact is that the Skating can feel very random, and also goals are usually cheap. Also the fact there are no sliders make it a disapointed. Overall, it's worth a Rental, but your better off saving $40 Bucks, and get NHL 06 or NHL 2K6. Full Review »
