Summary: I sold my copy of NHL09 and had to repurchase on Amazon because I missed it so much. The Best Sports Game PS3 has to offer! Hockey translates very well on the PS3 and this game takes it to levels not reached by any other.
Summary: In hockey it doesn't get much better then this. I've owned about 10 different NHL games in my lifetime all the way dating to NHL94. there is a huge improvement over nhl08. the game isn't drastically different but there are so many fine tuned areas that needed adjustments in 08' and they hit it...
Summary: I have been playing the EA Sports NHL games since the earlly 90's, the nhl games over that span have been hit and miss. This year however EA Sports has nailed this one. What seperates this game is the be a pro mode where you get to create your own character and take him from the minors to the pros.
Summary: alot of people say this game is too hard to score, but i think that's what makes it fun..the hitting is awesome, as are the graphics...i feel like a 2-1 game is way more realistic than a 8-7 game...did i mention the hits are awesome?
Summary: I never knew they could make a hockey game this realistic. The "Be A Pro" section is amazing and it lets you rise from the minors to be an NHL all-star. There are a few negitives - The goalies are sometimes unrealistically hard to score on.
Summary: This game is hard, but you still have lots of fun playing it. The first couple of games I played against friends and we all noticed how hard it was to score. As I kept playing against the game, I learned that scoring is damn near impossible.
Summary: This game is fantastic. I'm not the biggest hockey fan but this game provides intense hits, graphics, and cool sounds. Has the feel of being at a professional hockey rink. This game is flat out fun. Got this game for the low price and am very satisfied.
Summary: WHEN MY SON AND I USED TO PLAY SPORTS GAMS TOGETHER WHEN HE WAS A KID AND SINCE I GOT MY 83 INCH 3D 1080P TV WITH THE PLAY STATION 3 WE HADN'T PLAY ANYTHING BUT GIUTAR HERO. NOW WE STARTED PLAYING SPORTS GAMES AGAIN. I CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH FOR BRINGING THAT BACK TO MY SON AND MYSELF.
