NHL 07 puts you in command of every move on the ice, from glass-rattling checks to net-ripping slapshots.

EA SPORTS™ NHL® 07 heralds the return to the golden era of hockey videogames. With an unmatched level of freedom and control, NHL 07 now rivals its real life counterpart on the ice. NHL 07 puts you in total command with a revolutionary new Skill Stick system. Never take your hands off the analogue 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 analogue 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 team-mates and know how to best use their strengths with New Player-Specific Behaviours. 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 defence. 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. Whether you're running the front office or dominating the rink, NHL 07 is the most intuitive and realistic hockey experience ever created.
