1UP Reviews NHL 2K8

The first time someone laces up a pair of skates, he or she is bound to suffer a few unwelcome bumps and bruises. But like with any sport, spend enough time on the ice, and it starts to feel like second nature. So you'd think that 2K -- with a hockey pedigree that dates back to 2000 -- would only improve over time. Sadly, this just isn't the case. Rather than delivering a game that can stand toe-to-toe with EA's fantastic offering, NHL 2K8 reminds us of a skater who's still really uncomfortable on the frozen pond.

It was my first submission and I copy and pasted it from 1UP's site as written.

OMG, 4/10? 1up = idiots. They definitely didn't play this game....

benfinkel6127d ago

This isn't a very informative review. 1UP has taken a turn for the worse with this for sure.

It's about 200 words long, talks ONLY about the difficulty of the controls, and then gives it a low score. That's not a review, that's a brief complaint.

There is no talk of any of the off-ice features like franchise mode or online leagues or sim options or player development or scouting. It's fine that he didn't like the controls and is going to demerit points for that, but what about the rest of the game?

What!? That is freaking great!!!! I really loved this game back in the day and was so pissed the Remake got changed and then eventually canceled. This is such great news that it’s the original. Will definitely get the plat for it.

The article mentions:

* PC
* Nintendo Switch
* PlayStation 4
* PlayStation 5

But why isn’t there a mention of the Xbox Series version?

CrimsonWing692h ago

Yea that’s a Limited Run Games thing like what @Scissorman showed in the article. They’ve tried selling the physical versions of Xsex games, but they just don’t sell. But I’m fairly sure this should be digital for Xbox, if not, then it’s time to drop Xbox and come to greener pastures.

@CrimsonWing69, greener pastures.. Yep moved to mainly PC now myself get all the good games from both companies now if only Nintendo would release games on PC too.

so a ps1 game launched in modern platformos, mmmkay. I can play it already in emulators with high res, retroachievements support and more, doesn't make much sense.

It's gotta be Far Cry 2 for me, the feeling of that game I'm still yet to find again, just everything about it, I'd kill for a remaster, I'd even be happy with just a bump in resolution and frame rate, occasionally go back to it, think I'm gunna have to do just that now 😂

A remaster of Far Cry 2 would be amazing, especially with the mods that fixed the broken stealth system and the dumb checkpoint respawns. Include those fixes and it would be a huge upgrade over the original.

Enemies respawn in Far Cry 2? Terrible! It's a broken system! Make me a one-man army who can inexplicably hold an entire region!

Enemies respawn in Dark Souls and Zelda? Brilliant! So much more hardcore! Glad the devs took risks!

porkChop14h ago

The problem isn't them respawning. It's that they respawned after just 5 minutes. Like you'd still be in the area looking for diamonds, loot, exploring, etc, and the enemies would just respawn with you there.
