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...

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (6 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (8 minutes ago)

    Tiz That's what I meant lol. NFL, not NHL. (9 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it's pretty shitty to deny a system because of Visual Concepts though. They hadn't even produced anything yet and EA was a giant even then (9 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks EA's license is supposed to be up this year I think. I wish 2K could make an NFL game again. (10 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks NFL2K was also the franchise that made it painfully obvious how little Madden was changing year to year. EA had to buy the NFL, and 2K bought the MLB in response I believe. (13 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Even though EA had their games on the Saturn and that flopped hard, the Saturn ran headlong into the famous "$299" mic drop moment. (29 minutes ago)
