While there are several different genres that can consistently have success across the board in the video gaming world, few compare to the sports video games in popularity. Whether your passion is on the hardwood, on the gridiron, the baseball diamond, or any other field of competition you can find something to feed your fancy on any gaming console. The thrill of competition and the desire to deliver during crunch time is exciting for those of us who haven’t a speck of athletic ability. While you will want to avoid being part of a sport-crushing strike during the middle of your season, you will still want to take part in NHL 07 if you are a hockey fan at all.
One of the coolest features of NHL 07 is the ability to transfer your files back and forth between your PS2 and your PSP. Play for hours at home and build up your dynasty to your liking, but don’t miss a beat when you hit the road for a business trip or family vacation! Make it a true road game with NHL 07 on PSP when you play from anywhere with the same team in the same season, now how many games can make that claim?
If you are simply a hockey fan and not a fan of math then you may want to rethink your decision as in NHL 07 you must be able to manage the salary cap to build your dynasty. The new collective bargaining agreement is in place and you have to play by the rules to become a truly innovative owner, coach, or general manager. Do so with the best artificial intelligence on the planet and you will have a game that you just wish you could put down … as does your wife and kids.
The one major complaint is a complaint that seems to be across the board with hockey games in general as the “soft goalie” is a universal complaint. The bad is that your goalie may give up a good amount more goals than you are accustomed to, but the good is that you can score more too. Just try to overcome your situation yourself, build your dynasty, and for goodness sakes, don’t go on strike!
