More than just familiar faces and numbers, Sega Sports NHL 2K3 delivers player realism down to size, skill, and behavior, resulting in individuals that exhibit accurate styles of play. Now grinders battle for pucks in the corners, elite players see the ice and create opportunities, and fast skaters exploit their speed. The all-new Franchise Mode lets you capitalize on player accuracy to develop a team that plays your brand of hockey. Now you can draft hotshot rookies, trade for players who compliment your team, compensate for injured players, and more. Then put that precision to work on the ice by anchoring lines with key players and rotating those lines to create the match-ups you want. Bringing it all together is a new ESPN broadcast system where scores, highlights, and more are presented in the network’s famous style, putting NHL 2K3 in prime position for a repeat season as the leader in hockey realism.

All New Franchise Mode: Create a team and develop it into a dynasty. Play the roles of general manager, coach, scout, player, and more.

Detailed Player Attributes: Each player is rated in over 50 different categories, resulting in unique players that perform like their real-world counterparts.

Complete Lines Control: Set and customize lines based upon your own strategy and maintain full control over how and when you cycle them.

IGN Cube:

"I love console hockey. I admit I'm only a casual real-world NHL fan, but NHL 2K3 has done an amazing thing - it's made me want to learn more about hockey. If you are a fan of hockey or if you want to try hockey on a level beyond Hitz and NHL 2003, then this is absolutely the way to go."


Game Spot:
"Sega has done an excellent job of adding new features and polishing existing ones to make the game worth the wait. Now that the series has moved on to all platforms, no one will have an excuse not to play what has become the best hockey game series on the market."
