    If you're looking for a game that is neither sim nor arcade, a game where the commentary is horrible and names pronounced wrong. a game where the play stops for no reason, and faceoffs are taken in ungodly places. if your looking for a game where 21 year olds retire at the end of the season and super nintendo graphics then you should definitely pick up this game!!!!!

    TWO WORDS FOR THIS GAME. SUCKS ASS... This was the worst game i ever played. what were the critics smoking when they reviewed this game. it is one of the worst games ever. i've seen better hockey in NHL 93. Come on now. Someone once told me, "YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH EA SPORTS." That person was right. The camera view is horrible. Commentary is terrible, and gameplay is just plain TWO WORDS FOR THIS GAME. SUCKS ASS... This was the worst game i ever played. what were the critics smoking when they reviewed this game. it is one of the worst games ever. i've seen better hockey in NHL 93. Come on now. Someone once told me, "YOU CAN'T GO WRONG WITH EA SPORTS." That person was right. The camera view is horrible. Commentary is terrible, and gameplay is just plain bad.. Oh yea, the sound in this game sucks ass as well.. you can't hear anything, and their is no major checking. You cant even tell if they scored if it wasnt for that red light in the backround. I would not recommend this game to anyone.. YOU CANT GO WRONG WITH EA SPORTS!!!!! Expand

    If you’re looking to play hockey of the NHL variety, to tackle pro challenges and use real-life strategies, NHL 2K3 will thrill you as much as watching your team heroically survive a five-on-three penalty kill.
  2. With AI that is light years ahead of EA Sports, a simulation experience that's second to none, and a fun - if somewhat fickle - online experience with Xbox, the serious hockey gamer should only look at one title this year.
  3. Does an excellent job on the ice, providing the best all around control that I've ever seen. Good physics and a solid presentation add to the show.
