NHL 07 is an advanced ice hockey game, which was launched in 2021. The game significantly enhanced the overall gameplay of the previous series with over 100 new features, including a much wider range of stickhandling options, various levels of stick handling and more. Although it had already been released on the Nintendo DS, it was one of the first games to be released on Windows with some very positive reviews. However, many people were not happy about this, and the game has received a generally negative reaction from the gaming public. This article will try and determine if NHL 07 is actually any good, and if so, what its overall score is.
The game itself is a well-designed, and fairly intuitive title, in that you guide your team through matches by controlling your characters with the keyboard and your mouse. There are only four teams to choose between, and the game itself is split up into two teams of ten, and if you lose or win a match, your team will be forced to play against the other side's team in the next match. The game is well balanced, with no overly aggressive style of play, and players can get very frustrated in the later levels if they seem to be losing. Overall, the graphics are fairly decent, the game is fun and there are some nice settings that allow you to personalise your stick, as well as customising your uniform, which can make things a lot more interesting.
The real draw to NHL 07 is the playing itself, and the players that are actually shown on the screen are quite amazing. Some of the players look like they have their feet planted firmly on the ground, while others seem to levitate a few inches off the ground. It really looks like the players are more prone to taking risks when their faces are close together, and this is reflected in the statistics as well. Overall, this game is well worth a try, and you might just find that hockey is a better fit for you after all. Don't miss out!
