As usual, it'll be EA Sports vs. 2K Sports this year, and in the hockey realm, that means it's NHL 08 vs. NHL 2K8. In this video, you can check out how 2K's title is shaping up, and determine for yourself which simulation title appears more promising. There's some nifty puck work goin' on here, in addition to several blistering slapshots and - as the trailer title implies - a bunch of lightning quick face-offs. It concludes with the words, "All Control In All Areas," and if that's not encouraging, nothing is. Let's just hope everything will be implemented smoothly, and we'll get both accessible and responsive controls to go along with the expansive gameplay.
