What Gamespot Users have to say about NHL 2K6

    Don't even bother!

    The gameplay in 2K6 is great. Without a doubt the most realistic hockey sim out there. And in a lot of cases a game can get by with simply that. Great gameplay. However, there are WAY too many negative issues with this g... Read Full Review

    This hockey game is pretty good but the NHL series by ea sports is much better.

    This hockey game is pretty good but the NHL series by ea sports is much better. The player graphics really hit the spot in this game when I first got it but now they seem just good. The ice graphics are terrible in this ... Read Full Review

    Glitched game, noone buy it. Don't believe me? Check out the 2K forums.

    Well, this game has not only killed 360's, but it has also killed itself. How, you ask? After EVERY game, be it Franchise or ANYTHING, the game sticks at the loading screen. Since the new update, EVERY COPY OF THE GAME W... Read Full Review

    This is a good hockey game, at it's core, but is not worth uprgrading to if you already own the Xbox/PS2 versions.

    Unfortunately, sports games did not fare well back in the early days of the Xbox 360. EA decided to give us nice visuals while NOT including most of the gameplay features found in the 'curren-gen' versions. 2K Sports too... Read Full Review

    A MUST HAVE FOR ALL HOCKY FANS! WELL WORTH THE 15 BUCKS!

    Very good game! I had some one over and we got a kick out of being ownded as kazakstan when we took on Canada (no suprise). The goalie thing is kinda hard to master but incredably fun. The gameplay is well done but then,... Read Full Review

    This game is totally awesome. I recommend everyone to play this game because the gameplay is fantastic.

    The game play is smooth and very addictive. The directional pad is your quick play menu for offense and defense. On offense you can call for a goalie screen, crash the net, defensive pinch (your guys hold back and focus ... Read Full Review
