NHL 08 Screenshots



Use every skill in your arsenal to experience the explosive power of hockey with NHL 08. Combine the elements of power, speed, and finesse like never before as you develop from an up and coming player into an electrifying NHL superstar. Use the enhanced Skill Stick to shoot anywhere on net, or check rivals into the boards as you become the league's most dominant player. With stunning gameplay graphics, an improved deking system, and innovative gameplay features, no game is ever the same with NHL 08.

Features:

Skill Stick Moments—Shoot, deke, and pass your way from one end of the ice to the other on offense, and throw crushing bodychecks and knock players off the puck on defense with a simple flick of the right analog stick.
AHL Integration—Choose your favorite AHL team and see if you have what it takes to skate away with the Calder Cup.
Improved AI—New Goalie AI will have netminders anticipating one-timers and poke checking offensive scoring opportunities, while new CPU logic improves player puck control and gliding changes.
Create Custom Plays—Take any team into Practice mode and train them to run custom rush and in-zone plays in-game. Do you want your team to run cycle plays down low or feed the point for a one-timer? Record the exact movements of each player and watch as the AI executes them during gameplay.
All-New Skating Engine—New analog speed control gives you the variance needed to glide into the zone with control or get a burst of speed to step up on a defender. With new skating animations and responsiveness, you have the control to perform crossovers to maintain speed or carve tight turns for an immediate change in direction.
