Description

Score like a superstar with NHL 06. Express your shooting style with the all-new EA SPORTS Skill Stick and light the lamp with highlight reel moves such as spinoramas, toe drags, bat-ins, and between-the-legs shots. Classic deke control adds to your arsenal by letting you manoeuvre around defensemen and make goalies dizzy before snapping off dangerous shots that can ripple the twine and knock the water bottle off the net. Own the ice like in the glory days of the EA SPORTS classic NHL ’94!

Overall: Can it get any worse than nhl 2005? I dont think so. This game is definitely better than 2005 but still not all that it could be. Many areas are improved but much is not up to par with the competing NHL 2K6.
Gameplay: The gameplay is decent. A definite drawback is the completely non aggresive AI defense. We went from a hit fest last year to defense that stand back and watch as you do whatever you please. You just cant win. Also the scoring in the game is ridiciously high on the medium setting which lots of people play at. Then if you put it to difficult it turns into a cpu one time frenzy.

Graphics: The visuals are very well done. The ice reflections and markings after players skate on it is very well done. The player models are very good as well.
Sound: The sound is getting better year by year in my opinion. The goofy commentary is starting to get a bit more serious and doesnt make you want to mute it after just 3 games. The on ice sound is great as well.

Headed in the right direction so far.
Suggestions: Please revamp the gameplay totally. Lets have some decent shot counts instead of 63 to 16. And lets make the goalies a bit better by having them play more positinal instead of flopping around like fish.
