NHL 08

Ice Hockey has everything that you could want to have in a video game. By that we mean it’s brutally violent and played by characters harder than a cross between Jack Bauer and Sydney Bristow.

So, it’s nice to see this rather excellent preview over at 1up.com. The new online league feature sounds excellent in theory, and maybe we’ll see a SixthAxis league in the future? There are also some videos to have a looksy at, and a picture of a player with a well presented shiner!

Hockey is better than footy, so get ready for some real action when this is released.

Update: Gamespot has some fantastic details about the online elements of NHL 08
