Looks awesome. A lot of new animations. I just hope they tone down the tripping calls when you poke-check. But overall the game looks great.

Man I'm super hyped about this year's game. Lifting the stick on your opponent will add another dimension to the game. Can't wait to see some more videos of the game in action. Hopefully we'll see something at E3 coming up.

Damn, nice vid! I am extremely excited for the game.

Honestly I don't really see what's so exciting about the 360 degree defensive skill stick. We could pretty much do all of this stuff last year. I don't play online much, so at least from this video, the only incentive for me to get the game is the superstar mode.
The video may not show an awful lot,but it's hardly what to judge in deciding in getting the game.Give them time to release more info and show some gameplay vids before jumping to conclusions.I think even without the video there are plenty of reasons to get this.

Finally goalies doing spread eagle split saves.

Yeah,but that sliding save at about the 43 second mark looks like it could be a recipe for disaster.I hope the goalies don't make a habit of that,putting themselves out of position and giving up easy goals.

I saw a lot of things I liked in that video...new goalie animations (including desperation saves), better checking, stick lifts...good stuff! Throw in the comment in the hands-on about passing not being as accurate and I am pretty excited!

the fast deflections off the goalies (they seem scripted to me) have been around since after nhl '95 on the pc if I recall. It probably hasnt been fixed. I hope it has been fixed though, it would take the game to another level as far as goalmouth scrums go- see NHL hitz pro.

Anyways, looking forward to this game- it is the only game i've played on either system in the past year with any consistancy.

That is awesome.. NHL 08 was definitely game of the year in my mind, and it looks to only be getting better!!!!!!!!

Cannot wait!!!

I do like the looks of the pre-game intro before teams take the ice , hope they really put work into the pre and post game action and add to the presentation and atmosphere .Also , let us play as multiple teams in a season.

Pretty cool video, not too sure about the stack the pad save in that situation. It seemed un-needed, and the split save was cool but I hope its not done to often. It was pretty hard to beat goalies down low in 08 since the goalies were always down before a shot was fired. Looks like it could be even harder, which isn't bad. I hope they make the goalies capable of make glove saves this year.

Finally got a chance to watch the video (damn SonicWall at work for streaming media). Lots of cool looking stuff, but I always try to remind myself to not get too hyped by these types of vids or to over analyze 45 seconds of spliced clips...
# 15 bukktown @ 07/10/08 07:40 PM

And I still play NHL 08 like it came out yesterday....9 months later!
