    So, which one is better? I'm going to buy either of them tomorrow, but I can't decide. I've read reviews, and it seems like EA's game has a slight edge, but has really terrible Live modes.

    Haven't played either (don't have a 360 - and won't till I can get one with HDDVD Drive for <$200), but historically I prefer 2k series for hockey.

    how is your hockey knowledge ? If you are only looking for a fun offline multiplayer hockey game to play with your drunk buddies, then EA hockey is for you. Otherwise go 2k7

    2k series hands down - I have bought it very year for the last 3 years and easily just more fun...hll the fighting, enforcer/intimidated mode, mini games, even the dynasty is amazing.

    I prefer NHL 07 only because the right stick for shooting is the best thing ever. The graphics blow the crap outta 2K7 but the goalies let in some lame ass goals, like super lame in NHL 07.

    Having played both I can say, hands down, that I much prefer NHL2k7. While the right stick shoting was pretty cool in NHL 07, absolutely nothing else about that game impressed me. It played way too slow for my tastes, the controls were awkward, it didn't play realistically, and I just didn't have any fun with it. NHL2k7 plays fast as hell, is super customizable ( I turn the sliders all the way up on goalie defense and speed and it gets crazy!), has a ton more options, especially online, plays a ton more realistically, and I just had a ton of fun playing it. I also think the graphics are pretty damn good on 2k7 as well, and I really like the new camera angles.

    I think there is a demo of each on the marketplace, try both out and see which one you like better.

    ive always like EA's hockey titles better, and the graphics blow 2k7 away.
