[Show last ad] Hokey fans will love this new simulator because it brings out the dynamics and realism of the real thing.
A Sports' popular hockey series returns with NHL 2004 for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, PC, and GameCube. As with other 2004 EA Sports titles, NHL includes a new Dynasty Mode, where players can try their skills at being the team GM.
Revamped fighting engine uses a more realistic grappling approach to brawling, instead of simple button-mashing fistfights. Realistic motion-captured animations, detailed player models, and recreated stadiums make the game look even closer to the real thing. Play as your favorite National teams, or go international with an elite league featuring 39 teams, from Germany, Sweden, and Finland.
