Gamers Hell has posted their review of Gretzky NHL 2006, giving it a 7 out of 10.
"Gretzky NHL is a thoroughly decent hockey simulation. It makes no attempt to be an arcade experience, and those looking for quick and easy thrills are best advised to seek out NHL Hitz, or NHL 06. For players prepared to risk finger cramp, wrist lock, eye strain, and cracked patience in order to make the transitional skill demands laid down by the merciless gameplay, the experience is never anything less than rewarding. Throw in wireless multiplayer capability, Gretzky challenge modes, and gameplay-related unlockable features and Gretzky NHL 06 quickly becomes a diamond in the rough. Whether it can survive against the likes of SEGA’s 2K series—when and if it arrives on the PSP—remains to be seen, but for now it’s a perfectly fulfilling hockey edition, far outranking some of the sport’s more recent home console releases."
