Overall: NHL 08 is the best hockey game on the market. This game requires much skill to play versus the NHL games of the past. The biggest feature of NHL 08 would be the use of the Right Stick for shooting goals and dekeing. The AI is incredibly tough even on the Pro level. The only downside that I have experienced is glitches in the online play. It doesn't happen too often but it can be aggravating. I highly recommend this game over any other hockey game on the XBox 360.
