    absolutely one of the best ever hockey games out there!

    Rated on December 28, 2005 by freshtadeaf

    NHL 2k6 is pretty much the best hockey game i have ever played. It has everything you are looking for. The graphics improved a lot, and the game play, is really realistic. Key points: new reebok equi...

    Well I buy more EA sports than 2K sports, but one day I was on this particular website when I saw the Rating of NHL 2K5. It was 9.1, so I decided to buy it and it was only 20.00$. When I bought this g...

    Overall, a very fun, realistic hockey game, with a cheap price tag.

    Rated on January 05, 2006 by haziqonfire

    Yet again, 2K has released their games for a cheaper price, then EA's. Smart move i would say. Comparing this to EA 06, this game is for the more realistic fan. the 06 game has a more arcade feel to i...

    Best hockey game ive played yet.

    Rated on January 14, 2006 by Longchief

    Compared to EA's NHL '06 2K Sports NHL 2K6 put EA's hockey game to shame. NHL 2k6 is by far the best hockey game for 06. It is realistic and has great graphics. The online modes are very deep and crea...

    A Shame

    Rated on January 18, 2006 by Staxx99

    When I received this game for Christmas I was overjoyed mainly because I was hunkering for a recent NHL game, as they were starting up play again. After playing around for awhile I decided to mess aro...

    This game is terrible. Worst hockey game I have ever played.

    Rated on January 23, 2006 by heddan68

    I borrowed this game from my friend for the night and it was dumb. The graphics are jerky and boxlike and it is way too easy to score(I didn't feel like turning up the difficultry). The offseason is...

    Hockey Heaven!

    Rated on January 23, 2006 by tmac_daddy

    This hockey game is without a doubt the best I've ever played. Let's start with the Graphics. They are no doubt in my mind the best I've seen in a Hockey. There is so much detail and little stuff ...
