    It's like shifting through gears in a sports car. It takes a little practice to get good at it and the timing needs to be just right, but once you get the hang of it, it handles like a dream.

    All the great things from last year's NHL 2K3 are back and better than ever. Even more bells and whistles have been added, the least of which is the addition of the ESPN name which goes much deeper than just the name itself.

    In last year's title, aiming your swing was almost irrelevant unless you wanted to hit the ball to one direction or the other. This time around, it is crucial to know where you'll point the left analog stick.
