2K doesn't do Hockey or Football etc on PC.

I agree this game totally sux, not to mention buggy as hell cause it doesn't like todays hardware major controller issues bah just junk IMO.
Not even worth discussing. F%#$ EA Sports.

The game does not support widescreen, at least it does not support 1920x1200, maximum is 1600x1200. About the controller, the game is made for the Logitech pads (when you go to controller options you see a photo of a Logitech controller).

Like NHL 07, this game is totally different from the 360 version, so thanks EA Sports for the same crappy game than last year with updated rosters

Hey folks, I'm new to the forum and hoping someone can help...

I just bought the NHL08 for PC and cannot seem to get the controllers configged right-- I set it up in custom the way I like it and it changes in the game? I think it doesn't recognize my 2 button as 2 or 4 as 4 etc...-- any help?

Also- I need a PDF version of the manual in English. Turns out I bought a russian version of the game and it did not come with an english manual--- anyoneable to email me one at:

Sports games for PCs have been small sellers for quite some. That's probably why they've been putting very little effort into it. I remember NBA live 2003 for PC was amazing. After that, it was just downhill.
