The NHL 2K series has always set the standard in realistic hockey simulation, and with an all new face-off system, NHL 2K8 brings an unprecedented depth to one of the most important aspects of the game. Working with 2005-2006 NHL MVP and NHL 2K7 cover athlete Joe Thornton, the development team gained unique and valuable insight into the key aspects and subtleties of real NHL face-offs. Based on timing and strategy and featuring warnings, toss-outs, and tie-ups, this innovative approach to face-offs provides gamers with a detail and realism that is unrivalled.

Captured with the help of NHL legend Igor Larionov, Superstar Moves add a new dimension of skill and excitement to breakaways and shootouts by giving users the ability to perform 12 unique combo-based moves. This feature is true to life - not every player is capable of performing each move. With success hinging on your player's skill level, lighting the lamp with a Superstar Move becomes a rewarding experience balanced with authenticity.

Fans of realistic hockey action will be absolutely delighted with the level of control introduced by the ProStick. Stick movement and commands are tied directly to the right analog stick, giving gamers authentic control and puck-handling ability. Hundreds of new animations give users a full range of movement, creating a fantastic gameplay experience on both attack and defence.

NHL 2K8 also features completely revamped goalies. Under the guidance of star NHL goalie Marty Turco, the all-new goaltending includes significant enhancements to logic and decision-making. Goalies will now realistically come out and challenge, guard the posts, and perform spectacular butterfly saves. Bolstered by new animations, these improvements make goaltenders in NHL 2K8 the most realistic yet.
