NHL ’08 released todaySeptember 13, 2007
For as long as I can remember, EA Sport’s NHL series of video games has been my favorite. I’ve owned each one since back in 1993, when it was released on Super Nintendo.
Today (Sept 13th), the latest greatest version of the game has been released, and I will be picking up a copy for my XBox 360.
Last year, EA released the revolutionary “skill stick” control, which has made the game much more fun to play, and opens up a world of new things you can do with the players. It’s as close to “controlling” a player as it’s ever been in a hockey video game.
I’m hoping this year’s game will improve on some of the weaker areas of ’07, such as improving on the defense, and adding some advanced goaltender controls for the shoot out.
Either way, I am sure this game will be great for hours and hours of
wasted time entertainment.
