NHL 2K6 continues its legacy with more control, more emotion and more detail than ever before. Puck fans take command of tape-to-tape passing, behind-the-net plays and precision give-and-go attacks. Players dominate the ice with NHL caliber goaltending, skating, checking and puck handling with the deeply enhanced animation system. Featuring all-new presentation elements, commentary and cut-scenes, NHL 2K6 is the ultimate hockey experience.

Party Mode returns to the NHL 2K series and in NHL 2K6, brand new ways to play and new mini-games are available! Party Mode delivers a new spin to hockey action - playable for up to four players offline and online, NHL 2K6’s Party Mode includes these six new mini-games:

  • Stay On Target - Players skate to one of the three open targets to take control and then must stay on it as long as possible to gain points. If a player is without a target, they need to lay a big time check on an opponent to steal theirs away.
  • Break The Ice - Team based game where two teams are divided by a center wall. Players get the puck and score points by using the dump feature to destroy objects in the opposing area.
  • Speed Race - The first player to complete five laps around the course, which is littered with tons of obstacles, wins!
  • Super Smash - Players use the Intense Contact Controls on the Right Analog Stick and smash as many objects as they can to win.
  • Dodge - Players must avoid and dodge the constantly moving barrels. Make contact with a metal barrel five times and the player is out of the game. The last man standing wins!
  • Capture - Classic retake on capture-the-flag where the gamer moves his player to an opponent's target to get their flag. Bringing it back to the player’s home target will award a point. The first player to score on another player will receive a bonus point. If a player can last the whole game without getting scored on, they will win five extra points. If a player knocks over another player with their flag, they will garner a bonus point. It’s every man for himself!
