  1. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the versions of NHL 07 not made for the next generation of consoles offer little in the way of new content.
  2. Those who have never laced up and assisted on a one-timer in real life might be able to look past all the faults of NHL 07, but you'd have to be blind to ignore them all. With any luck, this franchise will move on to the PS3 and improve, and never look back.
  3. The graphics might be a little dated, but they still look good. The manual shot aiming works like a dream – the puck always goes where you want, and the targets that appear in the net make it especially intuitive for newcomers.

    A hugely enjoyable sim. [Oct 2006, p.87]
  5. The action can be hard to follow, but fans will appreciate the realism.

    I like the fact that this game is available for Windows XP: I like the dynasty mode feature. Goal tending is a little weak on medium. GoaliesI like the fact that this game is available for Windows XP: I like the dynasty mode feature. Goal tending is a little weak on medium. Goalies endurance levels drop severely after you find their weak points (easy goals). I do like the feature that describes the goalies goal tending style. I like the analog stick control, makes it fun to deke on when coming in front of the net. Some of the commentary is the same, depending on how the game play goes. I like the team upgrades in dynasty mode. This makes it more fun for the user to improve their team.
    The soundtrack gets old fast: could have had a better soundtrack, but you are able to turn off the songs in the menu which is a pro (I have it off during game play).

    Doesn't fly, doesn't work, too mechinal, a soulles bore, a sure-fire dead atmosphere.
