Review : NHL 2K7

Pucks are flying, shots are slapped, and bodies are being broken. Yes, it's that time of year again, as the start of the NHL season signals the release of the latest incarnation of the ice hockey franchise, NHL 2K7 from 2K Sports.

The sequel to last year's NHL 2K6, NHL 2K7 sets out to improve on the former in almost every way possible, by refining and polishing all aspects of the game to perfection, whilst adding a few obligatory new features for good measure. I'll be the first to admit that my experience with ice hockey games in the past has been brief at best, so to be completely honest, I had very little idea of what I should have been expecting from this game. Having looked into the sport, read up on the official NHL website, and checked the rules on wikipedia, I thought I was ready to enjoy a nice, leisurely skate around an ice rink, gently pushing a small, black disk from end to end, before calmly slotting it in the back of the net, and shaking the hands of the opposing team, in a typically chivalrous manner.

These guys are pretty cringe. Also the look of the new skate looks boring compared to games like Skater XL and Sessions. I'm not a fan of the arcade skate Sims

I kind of like the idea of free, social skateboarding game in an open world.

Lmao of course… that blows

I mean it could work. They could easily sell branded cosmetics which could pull in quite a bit of money if done right, but I can't say I'm not a bit disappointed. I'll try it cause I really like the series, but it'll suck if this fails cause I really like the series lol

"If done right" lmao. The only way to do that right is to make them unlockable via in game progression.

If done right they can do it like how Minecraft has done it for years and people don't have an issue with how MC does it. I wanna hate on EA just as much as the next guy, but I'll wait until after they ruin Skate to have a negative opinion on it.
