Images of NHL 08

Images of NHL 08

Electronic Arts doesn't care a bit about seasons and releases somes images of NHL 08, its well-known hockey games franchise. It's not bad looking nor brilliant, and I suppose fans will be pleased.

Um first shot is 3900 x 2194, and upscaled from at most half the resolution = bilinear blur.

Looks like they're going for some sublte rimlighting there, which makes sense here if anywhere because the white ice casts a soft global reflection.

Ive seen it in motion and im disapointed, looks exactly like the previous NHL's, but this years gimmic is that momentum from the player skating transfers into hits?!?!?! Hold on, hasn't that been a feature for the past, oh i dont know 5 years?!? With the same old animations!!!

These people like to make things easy for themselves thats for sure.

I'm thinking 2K8 is going to take it this year

Also why release shots that are clearly just from the replay function that pretty much fools the viewer with what they are seeing since it blurs the draw distance and enhances just about everything
It's like an EA bullshots in game function

Well this game has been touted as the sports game of the year from many sites, so we'll see.

EA must chabge their politics. People won't keeping on beeing fooled by them. One day that will turn very bad for EA. Stop that yearly remake shit EA. Start on new series, new graphics, new engines.... not that warmed up coffee shit...

Have you seen the reviews people have been giving Madden 08? Like 9/10, EA must have been paying them well too because i have both Madden 06,07,08 and in all honesty, they are all identical...
