Product Description

Product Description

NHL 07

Manufacturer's Description

EA SPORTS pioneers in the Golden Age of hockey videogames is once again leading the charge into the Next Gen Era with the most intuitive and authentic experience to date. Powered by next generation gameplay and rebuilt from the ground up, NHL 07 features new responsive controls and drastic improvements in graphics that represent a watershed for the best-selling hockey game franchise.

Never take your hands off the analog sticks as you take complete command of every movement on the ice with a revolutionary new Skill Stick system. This intuitive gameplay scheme delivers an unparalleled sense of on-ice speed and control as you direct virtually every player movement. Using the left stick to direct your lower body, and the right to control the upper, you will attain a level of fluidity only experienced on the ice. Skate into the zone and glide around your defenders, while bringing your stick across your body and drawing it back to fire a slapshot all without touching a button.

Know the skills of your players from the behaviors of their real-life counterparts with new Player-Specific Behaviors. Be a Sniper and rip one from the slot, make pylons out of the defense as a Dangler, or use your size and strength to dominate the crease as a Power Forward.

Off the ice, act as the General Manager in an enhanced Dynasty Mode. Do whatever it takes to meet an owner's expectations by properly managing rosters and using your creativity to fit player salaries under the new cap.

Whether you're running the front office or dominating the rink, NHL 07 on the Xbox 360 is the most realistic hockey video game ever created.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best NHL title to date on Xbox 360 15 Oct. 2006
By K. Tosh
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This years installment of NHL has been completely brought to life using the xbox 360's stunning graphic power to deliver a near life-like ice hockey experience. The detail on the players, the fans, even the trails of ice left behind by skaters is unbelievable - you really do have to see it.

The stick handling and shooting aspect has been moved over to the right analog stick (skill-stick) on the 360's controller this year which is very effective & feels much better once you get used to it (it takes time, so be patient). EA sports have given us a small tutorial to work on it as soon as the game loads up as well and it lets you practice it on a small shootout comp before you even get to the main menu.

Overall, a much sharper looking installment with great attention to detail and gameplay which makes this the best ice hockey game on the market. A much improved and more realistic revamp by EA this time round, good job.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I first saw this game in a games shop and I have to say my jaw dropped. On the whole I think the graphics are amazing. Backing up what others have said, the way centre ice deterioates through each period, the trail left behind the skaters, the reflections... all are very pretty to look at!

But a games graphics arent the only important thing. What about the gameplay you say? I cant speak highly enough. I was watching a hockey game on the TV and was like, "yeah I did that on NHL 07". It really does play like a real game of hockey.

How about the AI? If you get a powerplay you find that the computer will let you have possession, getting men back in their zone making your job of getting a goal as difficult as possible. You go on the penalty kill and you will HAVE to defend, getting your men back. if you dont, you'll soon find yourself a goal down. It really is an advantage getting the man advantage unlike on other games where it doesnt seem to make a scrap of difference. Very impressive.

The sound...?

one word - "WOW!"

The commentary does a great job. They even give you the three stars at the end of the game which isnt much really but I like it! The crowd is where this game shines. Your the home team and you lose a goal, they'll let you know theyre not happy! Your the home team and your 2 down but get a goal back, theyll get right behind you "Lets go sharks" come the chants! All the teams chants are in Oilers, Devils, you name it its in.

This is just amazing and actually makes you really go for the equalising or game winning goal!

Im in awe of the way the game handles the sound.

The only thing that may let the game down with some players is the game modes. Or lack of to be precise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality 14 Oct. 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I thought this game was great fun. The realism is there and the usual EA Sports presentation is there in abundance. Ice Hockey itself isn't my cup of tea but the game is easy to get to grips with.
I will never understand the line changes and offsides but when the puck goes in their net the feeling is the same as scoring a goal in football, addictive.
Graphics are impressive, for example when the game starts the ice is perfect but after the skaters have been on it, it wears out and the emblems fade, lots of other nice touches.
Get this game and give it a chance, you won't be disappointed. This is EA Sports at its finest.

5.0 out of 5 stars my favourite 360 title so far 10 Mar. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game when i first bought my 360 back in september & i'm still playing this game

it's a great game, the right analogue stick as the hockey stick was a stroke of genius, passing isn't great but good when you pull it off. the presentation is up to ea sports' high standards

online is fun too but still lacks the online leagues/seasons that we all desperately want

this is a solid ice hockey game...probably the best hockey game that has ever been released on any console

4.0 out of 5 stars Stanley Cup here we come!!.... 29 Jan. 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Im in the middle of my first season with my beloved Blackhawks and completely unbeaten so far. How can you not score goals in this game? Just keep shooting and following in and the goals will come! This game is totally addictive to anyone with an interest in Ice hockey, either NHL or European league. My only gripe is that im sick of seeing a close up of each teams coach whenever there is a break in play. I only put this game down to watch the NHL on Channel 5!! GO BLACKHAWKS!!!
