  1. The PlayStation 2 version of NHL 2K8 does little to impress.
  2. It can't go without mentioning that 2K8 is available for just twenty bones - a darn good value even if it were just a glorified roster update.

    If you already own NHL 2K7, you've got this game and just need to update your rosters. If you don't have a 2K hockey game, go buy NHL 2K7 -- it's the same game and you can get it used for less than $10.
  4. It's still the best hockey game on PS2, but a lack of new features means it's just last year's game reloaded. [Dec 2007, p.98]

After you tinker with the AI a little you get a nice challenging game. The all new superstar moves are ingenius! You can pull of some of the greatest moves to get a goal. The goalies are excellent, blocking every bad shot. The graphics are pretty good, but could be improved. This still is a decent game for $19.99 though. Full Review »

    The Lucky cult following of fans for this game is awesome. Praise to you who are not fooled by licensing agreements and rehashed games by EA.

CPU scores behind the goal through the net, goalie stucked in the corner, I can't shoot the puck, and those other things previous gamers mentioned, etc... I have always loved 2K-series but this one is a total failure. Unplayable. I am returning it, asap. Full Review »
