    NHL 2005 is fun, but hardly resembles real life hockey.

    For most of its lifetime, EA Sports' NHL series has been an arcade take on NHL hockey, and the nuances of the sport were eschewed in favor of over the top action. Make no mistake, these were enjoyable games, but hardly ... Read Full Review

    all about nhl 2005!!!deluxe #2

    Hard to believe that at this moment there may not be a hockey season this year. How can one of the best sports around not have a season? Since this is the case, you can still get your hockey fix by playing the latest hoc... Read Full Review

    You gotta be yanking me!

    Comparing this game to NHL 2K5 is an insult to all that is hockey. NHL 2005 has some good points. However, it leaves some things unfixed and creates even more problems. It's basically a rehash of NHL 2004 without the in... Read Full Review

    What a game!

    NHL 2005 on PC is one of the best hockey games you can find on PC. The best thing about NHL 05 is the MULTI PLAYER! If you have a joystick or a PC controller then your in luck. The multi player is the best part of this g... Read Full Review

    This is one bizarre hockey game, very frustrating.

    Ah, the NHL, the pros of the game known as ice hockey. this game ruins the good name of the NHL. This game is crap. I love the cover, cause I'm a canucks fan, it ruins the good name of the canucks captain. you can play ... Read Full Review

    NHL 2005 is nothing great, just an upgrade from 04, and I think 04 is even better.

    NHL 2005 is OKAY. I don't think that you should consider buying this game instead of, say, NHL ESPN 2005. Although it is a big installment from NHL 2004 it still needs some work. One of the biggest faults of NHL 2005 is ... Read Full Review

    This is by far the best EA NHL game to date. It has all the checking and game play of the Pro's to date.

    I've played the EA Sports NHL Hockey series since it's debut in the early 90's, and if you enjoy hockey like you see on in the Pro's, then this is the PC game for the hockey entheustist. It's got all the checking, hard p... Read Full Review

    A great game. Lot of fun but some things are missing. The dynasty mode is flat out fun. The gameplay is excelent and fun

    Nhl 2005 is one of the best games i ever played. The music track list is short but the actual tracks are really funt to listen to. Nhl 2005 offers a great gameplay experience and could be addicting.It is the best game in... Read Full Review

    Get off of those boards!!!!

    Action from the get-go this game rocks. Being a fan of the EA Sports NHL series since the '97 game, I am not a non-biased reviewer. The series has evolved in both a good way (graphics) and a bad way (control input) to cr... Read Full Review
