Going to check Best Buy tonight to see if they have NHL 08.
This is going to be a very bad thing for my grades....

For the first time in 2K hockey history the critics aren't happy.

The 1up review really screwed up the ratio, its really not that bad at all.

Gamespot's 161 user reviews have given it a 6.0 average rating. I find it hard to believe the game is THAT bad but people obviously aren't happy. I'd love to finally get a shot at the demo...

I dont know why its getting low ratings - I have had no problems with it. I actually dont see much difference between NHL2k8 and NHL08 after playing both (mind you for about 4 games on 2K8 and 8 games on the NHL08 demo). From what I can tell, 2K8 is definitely an upgrade over 2K7. The graphics are "next gen console" quality and the play is smooth.
I will, however, give props to NHL08 - it looks like they have finally brought a quality product to the market and are getting much deserved hype. I don't think the negative reviews on 2K8 are merited, so far i think they have a great products out there.
I think the arguments for best game will come down to the other details like online play, who has the best franchise mode, etc.
Maybe i haven't played enough to see the negatives yet but so far i am left with a good impression and I am happy to have the problem of TWO quality hockey games to choose from. Now about charging $60/game - tsk tsk.
