NHL 09

BrandonG "DGSoldier", Amazon
2 December 2009
  • Summary: Well i'm sure i would love the game. But being that I ordered it 2 months ago and still have not yet recieved it, I cant give the game a good or bad review. So I gues this will be a review on Amazon. This is not the only product i have ordered and not yet recieved. Being that it is the holidays, I would not be unreasonable about shipping, but like I said, these products were ordered over two months ago.

Worst NHL game ever!

Jester, Amazon
21 August 2009
  • Summary: This is a pretty game, but the play is absolutely HORRIBLE. It makes NO sense. Random shots go in and goalies turn into Gods. If you just you want to move players around and don't care about goals or the score or anything its OK. Otherwise stay FAR FAR away. Get an old version of NHL.

Weak Game Play, Great Graphics

Said Drake, Amazon
19 January 2009
  • Summary: I've been playing EA sports hockey games since the 90s. I am a huge fan and this is my favorite game. But this is the worst version I every played. No more high scoring games, very few great one timers. I played against friends and friends that that never played the game before and lost from weak shots. I turned the AL learning down and it still appears that the game gives an advantage to the weakest player.

Still as unrealistic as ever

Gwilym, Amazon
14 December 2008
  • Summary: This is a fun game in many ways, but with some very frustrating drawback. EA Sports has been producing this game for 17 years now and they have received the same criticism for all those years - still they seem unable to do anything about it. Here goes: 1. As in every other NHL-game in this series, the AI is very bad. Even if you play at the most advanced level, you will very soon dominate the game completely. 2. The goaltenders are just as pathetic as ever.

Nice idea, terrible execution.

GC "GRC", Amazon
19 November 2008
  • Summary: Let me begin by saying, the graphics and sounds are all great. The be-a-pro-mode is also really fun, and I still like the dynasty mode. But that's where it ends. The gameplay, nuts and bolts, are simply terrible. Let's begin with the skating, physics there seem to be fine. Even realistic, but this is where the realism ends. The physics of the puck are totally befuddling. Blocked shots gain speed and seem to always go to open cpu players.

Ruined by half done controls

Steve Simmons, Amazon
8 October 2008
  • Summary: If you use the classic control scheme, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. Some may like the new control scheme, but for those of us who have been around since the genesis days, the new control scheme seems a bit gimicky. Now days, we're forced to play with these crappy little controllers, so that makes the control scheme even more important. Some genius at EA decided to leave the controls half done.

Why Oh Why Oh Why?

S. Samson, amazon.co.uk
10 September 2008
  • Summary: AMAZON - whats going on here? Under NHL 09 (an Electronic Arts game) your review talks about 2K sports and features associated with a NHL game produced by an entirely different developer!!
