NHL 2K3 now available
Sega announced today the release of Sega Sports NHL 2K3 for the PlayStation 2. According to recent reports, NHL 2K3 provides the most realistic hockey experience on the PS2, as it features lifelike goalie maneuvers, strategic line changes, battling for the puck against the boards, and extensive individual player and team attributes. The game was produced by Visual Concepts and developed by Treyarch LLC, as the companies have highlighted the ESPN telecast-style presentation.
"Hockey fans and gamers alike will appreciate the action, depth and realism built into SEGA Sports NHL 2K3 for PlayStation 2," said Tom Nichols, vice president of sports marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "SEGA Sports NHL 2K3 combines total control of all the on-ice action and off-ice team management to give gamers the most intense and authentic simulation of the sport."
NHL 2K3 also features in-depth game modes, including Quick Game, Exhibition, Season, Playoffs, Tournament, and the brand new Franchise Mode. In the Franchise Mode players can select one of the existing NHL teams or create their own team and develop it into a dynasty. Users can negotiate contracts, sign, trade, and release players and scout upcoming rookies in the NHL entry draft. Sega truly has packed a ton of extras into their latest sports title, and it appears NHL 2K3 may be one of the top hockey titles available for the PS2 right now.
