Good presentation and graphics, but poor gameplay. I don't really get why they can't get it right after so many releases. This year the goalies can't save much of anything - 8 games into the season and my kiprusoff has a 71% save percentage and is 6-2.

But there still aren't any deflection goals unless it's a super fluke. It could also use more rebound goals. There isn't a slider to adjust how good the goalies play this year either which is pretty annoying. When a penalty is called now, 90% of the time it's for high sticking. It's cool that the offenses actually happen, but they could have played this game for about 10 minutes and seen the number of high sticking penalties was ridiculous. There are a lot of things I could single out as major faults in the gameplay. Just know that this is an arcade type game that looks like it should be a sim. NHL Hitz is a way better arcade game, and 2k7 is a better sim. Overall NHL 07 is such a waste of good graphics and presentation.… Full Review »
