Gretzky NHL 06 for Die-Hard Hockey Fans Only?


AdvancedMN reviewer Mark Kaine took on Gretzky NHL 06 (PSP) and seems to have stumbled on a few cracks on the ice. “Hockey games have traditionally made the transfer from viewing to gaming fairly well but some fine tuning can still be done on this portable version.” He also said that “scoring a goal seems near impossible considering by the time you get ready to shoot, the opposing defender comes in and either knocks you down, or steals the puck away. This keeps the gamesÂ’ scores relatively low and the competition intense, even when stronger teams play weaker teams.” Something that does not exactly favor Wayne Gretzy’s wife.

His final verdict: “Gretzky NHL 06 is a good but not great representation of what a hockey title can be. The controls arenÂ’t the best laid out but are adequate. With a lack of finesse in the shooting controls, this can be the most frustrating aspect of the game. Gretzky NHL 06 provides the only hockey experience for the PSP and worth an inquiry if you are a die-hard hockey fan.”
