It's pretty trashy, you need to spend your $60 on EA NHL 08 instead.

User Rating: 1 | NHL 2K8 PS3
Looking at the pictures and other reviews, you would think that this would be an awesome game, but IT ISN'T. For one thing, the graphics aren't near as good as you would think, the players don't look like themselves, and the player profile photos are from 05-06, and even before the lockout! Apparently 2K is too lazy to change things from 2 to 4 years ago. When you create a team, you don't have near as many jersy/logo choices as they did before, so that pretty much sucks too. If you have 2K7 on PS3, keep it, because there is almost no change from last to this year. I bought 2K8 and played it once, and am going back to trade it in for something else, and I advise you to do the same. DO NOT WASTE $60 ON THIS GAME, YOU WILL BE SO SORRY. But that's just my opinion, you can try it, but more than likley, you will return it the next day.
