The 2003-2004 hockey season is in full swing and that means NHL 2004 for Playstation 2 is waiting at a store near you. Are you ready to make your team number one? Find out if NHL 2004 is worth your playtime or if you should stick to watching hockey on primetime!

NHL 2004 - Game Time

NHL 2004 is full of new and improved features from last year's addition of the NHL game family. Players are a lot more agile, which means you have a better shot at ducking in and out of your opponents to get the puck where it belongs - in the net! And, if you're on defense, there's a lot more hitting and fighting to make things a little more interesting.

NHL 2004 - Penalty Box

NHL 2004 is not for the beginner hockey player. There are a lot more controls to learn and while your players do have more flexibility, this makes them a little harder to control.

NHL 2004 - Bottom Line

Don't expect to swoop in and lead your team to victory on the first try. NHL 2004 was made for serious hockey fans who've worn out their copies of their other NHL games. It's a lot harder to score in NHL 2004 than in NHL 2003 but with all the new features, you'll never get bored trying.

Is NHL 2004 Hard?

If you're an NHL game pro, you'll probably get a hang of the controls within an hour. Otherwise, set aside some time to figure out the controls before challenging a friend to a game.

NHL 2004 Game Age Rating: Everyone.

NHL 2004 Thumbs Up:
  • More realistic skating.

  • Super cool tunes from Bowling for Soup to Alien Ant Farm.

    NHL 2004 Thumbs Down:
  • Controls are a bit challenging.
