I was excited until I played the demo. I'll try the final game once it's released as I want it to be good but the demo left a bad taste in my mouth.

 

Uh oh, I don't like the sound of that. What didn't you like about it?

I love to play a little puck, what demo are you talking about john? the demo for easports NHL 2004 is out?

 

segas game should be out this week, I will probably buy ea this year because I bought segas last year, unless it has some notable and purchase worthy changes...

I think you mean iCamp. :D But I'd like to know too.

 

I really want a hockey game this year and was leaning towards Sega's, so I'd like to hear what iCamp didn't like about the demo.

What was merged? It doesn't seem like we're all talking about the same game here since NHL2004 doesn't come out till the end of the month. ESPN is this week.

 

As for the demo, if we're talking about the ESPN demos... they are old and do not represent final gameplay. The PS2 is even older than the XBox demo. Waz, who runs ESPNhockey.net and is the mod for the ESPN NHL forum at Thunderpuck has a final build of the game and has been quite impressed with it. I can't wait!

 

EA's game looks like it should be better this year (it can't be much worse than 2003), but while I am interested in trying it out, I'm not terribly optimistic.

I believe espn added some new deke moves. the reason why I love the ea game is because of the the deke feature and the way the goalie reacts, no other game has had that one on one encounter as good as ea's, the problem is that the rest of the game is ussually lacking, sega has the gameplay great, but the one on one breakway has been a little lacking, so hopefully sega steps up in one on one and ea steps up in gameplay. from what I have read/seen both have made steps in the right directions, but will it be enough, will we have a game as good as nhl 94? time will tell.

Read EGM's review today and all 3 reviewers gave ESPN a higher score (one them substantially higher). All three of them, plus the GMR reviews have pretty much said the same thing. Graphics are better in ESPN, gameplay in ESPN is better and more refined over last year.

 

EA has new controls to keep up with ESPN (although ESPN was lagging with the manual dekes) there is way too much hitting which makes much of the new control they added rather pointless, but EA has much better Franchise/GM mode.
