NHL 07 Review Now Available

Art Green has written his review on the latest NHL title from Electronic Arts:

“EA Sports’ NHL franchise has been in a couple year funk, with NHL 2005 and NHL 06 being relatively disappointing titles. NHL 07 for the Xbox 360 is EA’s first foray into next-generation hockey, built from the ground up to actually be a next-generation experience. Does EA pull it off? Despite a few gameplay annoyances and barebones features in both the online and offline portions of the game, the addition of the skill-stick and the mind-blowing graphics makes NHL 07 a no-brainer for any fan of the coolest game on Earth.

The first thing that will stand out about NHL 07 is the tremendously detailed character models, which are arguably some of the best to be found out of any sports title to date. You cannot necessarily see all the very fine detail in the game while it is in action, due to the default camera angle. However, go to the instant replay and just zoom in on the players. You can see the thread on the numbers of the player’s jersey; turn around and look at that players face and you can immediately recognize that player. During the cut-scenes in between stoppages of play, the graphical detail is even more mind-blowing.”
