Game Over Online has posted their review of Gretzky NHL 06, giving it a 55%.
"If you don't get the gameplay right, all else fails. Yes, the Franchise mode is pretty solid, but this isn't hockey league simulator, you'll eventually want to manually play a few games. The Wayne vs. Wayne mode is loads of fun, but it's not worth paying $39.99 USD for. I just can't recommend Gretzky NHL 06 over either of the other two hockey video game franchises currently on the market. The developer has to take stock and figure out which direction to take their franchise. Is the goal to provide an accurate simulation of the game of hockey or to create an over-the-top arcade experience, like the Wayne vs. Wayne mode. The next time we see Gretzky on the ice, it might very well be for the PlayStation 3. Let's hope the developer can figure it out by then. Until that time, Gretzky NHL 06 is best left on the bench."
