    I bought NHL 2003 a few years back after a recommendation, which I loved, but I've not bothered since. The "colour commentary" was one of the highlights imo, although I don't think the ice hockey fans were too impressed.

    As a massive hockey nut and NHL game fan, the series is getting long in the tooth with the same old commentary (they're on a 5 year deal I think) and the 'tweaks' year on year. However, I do think this is the best of the new (now old) generation...

    I'm not one for the Goalie fights, but being able to interfere with the netty is a nice touch. But it can be a pain when you're setting up in the zone! Passing it around and then one of your louts runs the netty...

    As far as the series goes, it's pretty much like Fifa really. Year on year not much changes, but what does is welcome.

    There's a few early bugs in this one though which is unusual, however they usually get ironed out pretty quickly.

    - First bug was Online Pass didn't work, now fixed I think.
    - Second up, stats in Be a Pro etc aren't updating...


    I feel this has the pick up and play factor that I think most hockey games have had... for hardcore fans, it's a welcome update.

    baseball has 3 bases , you must reach

    Violence and Lubrication is the solution to fixing everything, if it still doesn't work, you need more lubrication.
