    Messier Has Hair?

    The player models are off, the announcers sound bored, and Mark Messier has hair. What isn't wrong with this game? The worst part of this game could be the intimidator feature. Enforcers, such as Scott Stevens have the a... Read Full Review

    absolutely one of the best ever hockey games out there!

    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 equipment... starting a ... Read Full Review

    Very well done, a huge step up from last year

    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 game I honestly thoug... Read Full Review

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

    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 it. The sad thing is,... Read Full Review

    Best hockey game ive played yet.

    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 creative. Being able to ... Read Full Review

    A Shame

    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 around with season mode... Read Full Review

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

    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 way too long, compl... Read Full Review

    Hockey Heaven!

    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 in them that not eve... Read Full Review
