How do they manage to make a game that is slower than half-life 2. Half-life 2 runs just fine on my geforce 2, 700 MHZ duron computer at even medium settings. However, when I run nhl 2005, at 640x400, everything extremely low, the frame rate is about 1 frame per minute and you only see the jerseys floating around. Now, how do you manage to make a game that is limited to a tiny area like a rink with 12 players on it run one hundredth of the speed of half-life 2. Beats me. Easports development team should be shot.

Bad scalability I guess. Well, EA Sports is known to be anything but customer-friendly so again nothing new on that front.

And for the shooting, the development crew was fired some months ago.
Let's hope for an awesome comeback by the series next year.

It's as if they are using java to program their game and have never heard of directx or opengl.

Don't worry about not being able to play NHL 2005, EaSports hasn't put out a good hockey game since 98.

Maybe you should get an upgrade or an xbox. 700 mhz and a geforce 2 was 5 years back.
