ESPN NHL 2K5 is all about enhancing the virtual hockey experience for all puck fans. Previous Top Shelf Tuesdays have highlighted new improvements to gameplay and in-depth franchise additions. ESPN NHL 2K5 also introduces two new modes - Dream Team Mode and Party Mode, that promise to provide many hours of entertainment and add a new element of team play. Dream Team Mode challenges the gamer to win against several customized hockey teams. Players work their way up against a ladder of all-star teams hand-selected by well-known hockey personalities including Martin St. Louis, Jeremy Roenick, Chris Drury, Brendan Shanahan, Steve Levy, Marty Turco, Gary Thorne, Bill Clement and many more. Each team has been tailored by these personalities to not only include specific NHL players, but with unique team colors and unique logos. If they are able to beat a dream team, gamers will then be able to unlock that team which can then be played at any time.
