NHL 2K7 introduces a completely new skating engine to give
users a true on-ice movement experience. Additionally, Pro
Control receives new enhancements to both offensive and defensive
controls, giving hockey fans thrilling new ways to attack
and defend on the ice...
latest addition to the NHL series of games from 2K
Sports includes hundreds of new skating animations. Also included
are several new checking, passing, and shooting animations
making the action in NHL 2K7 flow with amazing detail.
gameplay enhancements have been added to 'Pro Control', giving
users offensive and defensive tools to use on the ice. While
on offence, players now have the ability to execute drop passes,
allowing users to set-up new screen plays and create new scoring
opportunities to catch the goalie off-guard. 'Pressure Control'
brings a tactical element to defensive hockey as players now
can instruct team-mates to defend opposing players while on
the ice. Varying degrees of pressure can be selected - whether
it's telling your team-mate to shadow a selected opponent
or deliver a big check - allowing players new defensive options
on the fly.
the biggest noticeable difference between 2K7 and 2K6
is the introduction of Cinemotion. This adds new camera angles,
commentary and music to the gaming experience. While the later
two are not that impressive, the new improved camera angles
are, on the whole, an improvement. This sees the camera angles
changing to give an almost cinematic look to the game. The
only real negative of this is that when the camera zooms in
on you, as you rush towards your opponents goal, finding other
members of your team to pass to is a little tricky.
despite the aforementioned tweaks to the 'Pro Control' system
- which was added to 2K6 - I didn't really notice any
overall benefits over last years offering. To be honest the
few upgrades on offer are hardly likely to make you want to
shell out again for a game you already own. However, at £20
this is well worth picking up if you don't already own 2K6.
