Best hockey game of all time in my opinion. Easy and fun to play. Works with both XBOX and XBOX360.
it was a pretty good game for a old game. I liked it a lot. it was pretty good .
ESPN NHL 2k5 is a difficult game to review. From a pure gameplay standpoint, you can't go wrong. I can't think of one single thing to complain about, especially since virtually every aspect of the gameplay can be tweaked via "slidders". Visuals are outstanding, and sound can be made to be outstanding. I say that because the default sound settings are rediculous. All you can hear are the commentators. No goal horn, no arena announcer, etc. Fortunately, you can fix all of that.
First, the price alone is amazing. Video game technology is cheap now so the $50 price tag should be removed from all games. Back to 2K5, The graphics are the best ever seen on an NHL game. The improvement over last years version is incrediable! Commentary is much better. Yes, still repetitive sometimes, but alot more different comments and play-by-play announcing. The crowd even reacts to the action on the ice. Ring a shot off the post at home or not your opponent on his ass you will see what I mean about the crowd reaction! The controls have improved beyond expectations. You know literally control your every move. There are more extras than I have time to describe. But the table ice hockey is great. But the Franchise mode is the best improvement. It is more indepth and you can scout and control your minor league team as well. Everyone complains about the "freezing up" I have not had it happen to me. I am in the month of March of the franchise. But that does not mean there is not a problem. I just have not experienced it.
