NHL 2003

The good:

Great replayability, tons of teams and players

The bad:

Play by play, in game music, poor player-to-player transitioning.

Summary:

At first I absolutely hated this game. The controls felt foreign and stupid, and very unlike the 2002 controls. But as I got used to it most of my complaints went away.

I absolutely love the dynasty mode, which allows you to become the GM for your favourite, or created team in any of the leagues in the game. You sign, draft, and trade players to build a team that can go all the way, and then you can choose to either play the season yourself or simply sim through and see how well the computer thinks you did.

The game play isn't bad either. Personally, I couldn't stand how easily the puck c...

My Review

The good:

I like the new breakaway moment it's so cool. Also the manuel system I mean I can't wait till I fill that meter to deke out the goalie.

The bad:

A bit to plain I mean I have seen better products from previous games like NHL 2002 and even NHL 2001. And some songs of the EA TRAX.

Summary:

I really do like this game I mean the deke system is cool and when they give that breakaway cam for a few seconds it makes it heart pounding for the player and the graphics are superb just like last years game. But I am not going to bragg about how good this game is because it's not the best package that Ea has delivered. It's really more like last year's game and if you buy it it's just like if you are buying NHL 2002 this game is too plain even NHL 2k3 is better than this game. If I were planinig to buy this game I would really be thinking about it cause it's just like playing NHL 2002 so...

The bad:

Controls
Graphics

Summary:

Well being Canadian and knowing tons about hockey, you would think it would help in reviewing this. Well get ready hockey fans.
NHL 2003 is a hockey sim game with all 30 NHL teams. Presentation is good and looks sharp. Other than that the game has a lot of problems to work out.
Graphics are bad. Not in the sense of say a N64 game. But its the little things that appear to have been looked over. None of the players or coaches look anything like themselves. The letter on the jerseys is all wrong to.
This game does not seem fluid and fast paced at all. It doesnt ever feel like you have con...

NHL 2003 Save Your $$$$

The good:

Music & game sound effects.

The bad:

Graphics are very average, game play is not smooth, play-by-play announcers are just horrible, and the feel of the game is nothing like real NHL hockey.

Summary:

Sorry, but I sold my copy & will continue playing NHL 2001 on the PC. Hopefully, Sega's NHL 2K3 can provide hockey fans with a quality game. EA needs a serious overhaul of the NHL franchise & game engine. Save your $$$ and pass on NHL 2003 for the XBOX.
