Like everything I see is about getting achievements and struggles in rookie mode. I have played 2 full seasons and always play on superstar mode I got the rookie/pro/all-star achievements when i was bored (so I have full 1000)but this game is still one of my favorite games. If I am ever bored I just play it, have fun and pwn. So did anyone here play this for fun and find it to be as great a game as I did

I also enjoy it, haven't played it in a while after getting the achievements though

So do you play it on superstar difficulty when you do play?

I hardly played the difficult setting. I was planning on playing a 3 * 10 period on a harder setting, but like I said I haven't played in a while

This game is so awful in comparison to 08, I'm practically dying playing this one after having played 08 all year at school. I already got most of the non-retarded achievements for 08 though so I'm just gonna buy 09 when that comes out. Bought 07 for 15 bucks and am returning it to EB within a week for store credit after I 1k it >_>

I love this damn game. I got 925/1000 the first day I had it, so the fact that I'm still playing months later should say something about the quality.

You obviously havent picked up 08 yet, because every single thing about 08 is a monumental leap above 07 :(

When I first got the game I wasn't into achievements so that should tell you something right off the bat. I played this game religiously from the day it launched until I got Gears for Christmas in 2006. I still played NHL 07 a lot and I believe I finished the achievements last summer. I haven't played it in a while because I've been playing NHL 2K7 because I still need some more achievements in it and because I love the goalie mode. 07 is still probably a better game though. Also, I've been playing a lot of 08 at my friend's house so I really don't have any desire to go back to 07. As EvoLveR84 said, 08 is a lot better. They also have the AHL in there too.

I do think that 07 is way too easy. I won a game 9-0 on Superstar against the Detroit Red Wings using the St. Louis Blues whom I believe are one of the worse teams in that game. The game can get a little boring after a while when Superstar becomes too easy to win in.

I actually picked it up for the hell of it at Gamestop, because it was only $9. I even have NHL 08. hahaha. I figured, "Why not? I can make the Penguins Stanley Cup Champions, get some extra achievements, and enjoy a cheap game, especially since I love hockey games."

Anyways, I've definitely enjoyed it for the couple days I've had it so far. I feel that '07 controls a little bit better than '08 does. But one thing I can't stand about both '07 and '08 is that they use the same damn soundtrack of crappy rock bands. hahaha. At least the demo to NHL 09 had Black Tide, which is 10x better than all the songs on '07 and '08.

So to answer your question more directly, no. I didn't just play this for fun. I got it for the fact that it was cheap, I'm getting lots of easy achievements, AND I'm having fun with it. Good times, I tell you. Good times. :woop:

This is a pretty fun game. I just am not very good at it!

NHL 07 was my first xbox game lol I actually didn't care too much about achievements back then, and I almost 1k'd it.
