    Although this game still plays smooth, it has nothing new in terms of gameplay. It was a solid game 4 years ago, but leaves nothing to say for next gen hockey. Next-gen should be beautiful. The graphics look like they were put together as part of a school project instead of a large game company.

    The graphics and gameplay are NOT next gen. This is 2K's second NHL game for the 360 so there is no excuse for this mess. From fake coaches that critics describe as "scary looking" to players with cartooney skin tones. Pass on NHL 2K7.

    Weird looking players and unfinished Menu design make NHL 2K7 a game to pass on. I got the game as a gift and traded the game in for EA's version. Button pressing is is as last gen as the graphics. The new camera angle is cool but that's about it.

    Not worh buying if you have last years game. It looks even worse in the graphics department if that is even possible. EA knows detail, hopefully it kicks 2k into gear.

    I should have realized by playing the Demo that this game wasn't going to be good. Cheap graphics and boring button pressing that takes all the skill out of the game. Not worth buying.

    Who cares about all the different types of venues. Give me a decent NHL game that worthy of being played on my 360. Survey says trash. C'mon 2K you made the best NFL ever. Put some effort into hockey.

    Not even close to EA's NHL 07. Same exact game as last year...

    So when is the finished product coming out? Glad I rented the game first. The ice looks great. Skating is good. Everything else screams budget title. Gave it a 2 for the ice and slight graphics improvement. Some players look more Gears of War than like NHL players.

    EA feels like real hockey...2K feels like a video game.

  1. The outstanding gameplay mechanics will be familiar to fans of the series, but NHL 2K7 makes important strides in the realm of presentation with this year's 360 offering.

    Online, 2K Sports continues to lead the pack with online leagues and franchises and stat tracking. While "NHL 07" features an excellent gameplay innovation with the skill stick, NHL 2K7 is the most complete, all-around hockey title on the 360.
  3. NHL 2K7 is a solid game and the new animations help to make it feel more next-gen worthy than last year's entry. However, despite the sheer number of new features, nothing feels particularly groundbreaking.
