The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang
Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

2K8 is pretty. The presentation/play mechanics are not. I loved the presentation. I (naturally) chose the Predators.. had the pre-game stuff, showed them coming onto the ice, light shows, the works, it was awesome.. then the game began and it was a clusterfuck.
There's a reason why this is $19.99 and NHL 08 is still $59.99. Avoid.

FWIW, I got it mainly for the franchise mode. NHL 08's franchise mode is seriously flawed and buggy as hell. I've heard 2K8 is 10x better in that respect.
And honestly, after just playing the 2K8 demo the other day, I didn't think it was that bad. As good as NHL 08 with default setting for both? No way. But 2K8 has so much more "tweakability" that it might get close to 08. My biggest complaint with 08's gameplay is how ridiculously unrealistic puck control is. Whoever has control of the puck might as well be playing 5 on 3.

However, that all being said, NHL2K8 at $19.99 is a steal if you're a hockey fan. It's definitely not NHL 08, or even NHL2K7, by any means, but it's still a great game for $20.

I liked the 2K series better than the EA's until NHL 07 came out. 2K needs to step up their Hockey Games to compete with EA.
$20 for NHL 2K8 Brand New is still pretty good though. Thanks OP.
