Official Fact Sheet:
The golden era of hockey videogames is back with NHL 07 brought to you by EA SPORTS – brand of the best-selling hockey videogame. Console hockey now rivals its counterpart on the ice with an unmatched level freedom and control.
NHL 07 puts you in total command with a revolutionary new Skill Stick system. Never take your hands off the analog sticks as you take complete control of all skating on the left, and – for the first time in a hockey videogame – passing will use an intuitive motion on the right analog stick to execute with precision.
Feel like a part of the team with a level of passing fluidity that allows you to implement a realistic team strategy. Look to your teammates and know how to best use their strengths with New Player-Specific Behaviors. Play the game like you do on the ice: Be the Playmaker and find your Sniper open in the slot, or let your Dangler make pylons out of the defense.
Off the ice, act as the General Manager in an enhanced Dynasty Mode. Do whatever it takes to meet an owner’s expectations by properly managing rosters and using your creativity to fit player salaries under the new cap.
