OT: NHL2k5 problem
 
I'm a rehabbing video game junkie, but still allow myself the pleasure of my yearly NHL fix... That being said, I noticed in my version of the game, (PS2) the L1/R1 buttons don't seem to work, which means you have no turbo skate, and you cannot switch teams to make trades or scroll through stats. I thought my controller might be bad, but it works fine on 2k4. Has anyone else noticed this to be a problem? I can handle no stats, but no trades?! Impossible! :mad: Thanks in advance...

I have the PS2 version and my L1/R1 buttons work fine. I think you might want to return it and get another copy. And FWIW, you can use the circle button for a speed burst too.

Anyone who was on the team at the end of last season is in it.

Yes, that means Thomas Pock, Lawrence Nycholat, Jozef Balej, and the likes.

As far as ratings go, they're not bad. Think what 2k3 and 2k4 were like -- this is similar.

you can call guys up and send them down but you don't have the ability to actually play the hfd games. you can follow their stats though. on another note, the play by play is pretty awesome except for gary thorne mispronouncing names like : manny malwhoretra and tom potty. i guess it adds to the realism. :dunno:

And would I be able to call up Cuthbert to play him in Exhibition??

I have the PS2 and have no porblems with the L1 or R1 button controls. Remember to toggle to the other team for trades use the 0 button.

Intermediate, Classic or Advanced

I don't have the book in front of me but there are 3 different settigs for the controller.

Also, it may not be the game, but the controller itself.

NYRangers 09-07-2004 05:53 PM

Balej and Pock get very good in franchise mode. Pock is a 77 OA at 23. He gets it to high 80's, same with Balej.

Works fine for me. Check the book and make sure your pressing the buttons you think you are. The L2 is used to do the new pass.

The game is only allowed to have players who have played atleast 1 game in the NHL. So all the guys that you listed are not in the game, you'd have to create them yourself, or edit the ficticious minor leaguers that the game assigns your team.

Nycholat isnt in it. Blackburn is 82, Murray and Green are 75.

How is Nycholat not in the game? He played 9 games this year with Rangers and has 6 pim.

GentlemanOfLeisure 09-08-2004 01:22 PM

Nycholat might be listed as a "free Agent" along with guys like Peters from Buffalo and Adam Munro from Chicago.

Question
 
Not that I am complaing but anyone have an idea why its only going for $20? Sega trying to be nice to videogame players?

No, it's their marketing strategy. They've cut the price of their sports game this year to try to get a bigger piece of the market. It in no way reflects a lesser quality or effort on Sega's part.

I dont know about your version of the game, but Nycholat is in mine and he's rated a 71. Also, Mike Green is rated a 73 in my game.

I cant wait to get the game. I heard the fight is awesome, that any player can fight. I just wanna have Tom Poti fight so he wont be on the ice for 5 so their wont be defensive problems. lol

The fighting is not so great in the game. But i could care less about it. The thing that makes this game so great, is the tight gameplay. The flow and control is spectacular. This game actually allows you to play solid D. If you get scored on, most of the time it's because u ****ed up on D...
