I don’t know when these came out, but I found out the NHL 2k8 achievements came out and they looked pretty much the same as last year.
The NHL 08 achievements are completely different than 07 and some may be impossible.
Some notable toughies are as follows:
– 25 shots in one period on Superstar mode.
– Don’t take a penalty in a Superstar mode game.
– Score a goal with your goalie in Superstar mode.
– Play 25 ranked shootout mode games online.
– Beat someone in the top 50 online.
Since I play with sim settings, namely speed all the way down and settings where they resemble ACTUAL hockey, and I try to play as realistic as possible, getting 25 shots in a period on the hardest difficulty won’t be easy.
Score a goal with the goalie??? How the hell do you do that? Unless they tweaked how the goalie sends the puck, that won’t be possible unless the other team carries the puck into my net for me.
The online achievements are pretty straightforward, but who is going to play 25 games in just the shootout mode online? So i’m gonna play someone in a game that takes more time to load up than actually play?
However, beating someone in the top 50 might be easy early on, but once you idiots online start finding all the cheap tactics and glitches and start abusing them, it will be much more difficult. I’ll stick with playing a sim game and beating those morons who can’t play real hockey. Plus I’ll hopefully have teammates like Keller who know the game well and also tries to play real hockey. We were near unstoppable in NHL 2k3 so this shouldn’t be much different.
Of course none of the online play matters if EA didn’t make it so there isn’t that 1/4 second delay as in last year’s game.0
