Only NHL 07 puts you in total command with the revolutionary Skill Stick system. This incredibly intuitive gameplay scheme delivers an unparalleled sense of on-ice speed and control as you direct virtually every player movement without ever taking your hands off the analog sticks. Inside the office, do whatever it takes as a Dynasty Mode general manager to properly manage rosters and creatively fit player salaries under the new cap. Whether you’re running the front office or dominating the rink, experience the most realistic hockey video game ever created with NHL 07.
• Dominate with the Skill Stick—Take over a game with an enhanced control system. On offense protect the puck, pull off spins, and dictate the velocity of every shot during scoring opportunities, or take away scoring chances with bone-crushing body checks and aggressive pressure on defense.
• Play to Your Strengths—Utilize the skills of your finesse players to stick-handle through the zone, playmakers to set up scoring opportunities, and power forwards to use their body to drive past defenders. Or take advantage of the size, strength, and skill of your defensive defensemen to muscle and angle players off the puck.
• Incredibly Realistic Detail—Players look and react more than ever like their real-life counterparts. See a sharpshooter’s stick flex on a blast to the net, a net minder look a puck into his glove on a big save, and how a goalie’s pads remain flush to the ice in and out of the butterfly.
• Live the Life of a GM—Sign and trade players, and negotiate contracts under the salary cap based on the new CBA. Once signed, it’s up to you to mold young players into the superstars of tomorrow while keeping the team’s overall confidence at its highest level.
• The Most Exciting Play in Sports—Nothing matches the pressure and intensity of a shootout. With the puck on your stick, and the game on the line, see if you can become an instant hero by beating the goalie one-on-one.
• All-Star Commentary—Gary Thorne and Bill Clement deliver a fresh TV-style broadcast that focuses on team and player rivalries. Storylines are introduced pre-game and change after every big hit, critical injury, and momentum-swinging goal.
