  • Summary: Gretzky NHL 2006 for PlayStation 2 retakes the virtual ice with popular gameplay options including Practice Mode, Exhibition Mode, and Online Mode with 64-team tournaments. Additionally, an overhauled Franchise Mode lets gamers run the show as owners of NHL and AHL teams, while an expanded Rivalry Mode tracks and records statistics from head-to-head battles over the lifetime of the rivalry. For gamers who want to get in the game, EyeToy functionality offers the opportunity for gamers to take a snapshot of themselves, put their face into the game and suit up as or against their favorite NHL player.

    Here's a puck game that's actually worthy of old number 99. The Franchise mode is nice and deep, the Wayne Vs. Wayne Arcade mode is mad addictive and the on-ice action is super slick without ever being too over-the-top.
  2. It was well thought out, and makes for a nice change of pace from normal play.
  3. A little too arcadey for my tastes. The game just doesn’t feel like a true hockey game to me.
  4. There’s simply no reason to recommend it from either a gameplay or price perspective.
  5. The Great One shoots!....and he misses.
  6. Ice is cold, but this game is colder. [Dec 2005, p.110]
  7. A buggy mess that should be avoided in favor of "NHL 2K6" or "NHL 06." [Dec 2005, p.115]
