  • Summary: GREAT GAME! I would play this in 2012 even 2014 maybe. I don't know but this game blew my mind when I started playing it more. The camera angle is awesome because you get to put it closer in or further out.The controls are great except for the passing witch sometime you just dump the puck instead. I like how everything sounds especially the effects when your play and hitting.

  • Summary: i picked this game up a few weeks ago and i have no complaints. It was a really fun game and i can't stop playing it. The graphics are not that great but gameplay is awesome and NHL 2K9 has improved so much from last years game. The rosters are up to date and so aren't the overalls. The fighting isn't like 2K8 2K8, you can fight basically anytime u want in this game fights are really rare and i haven't had to many fights but when i get into fights it is so fun.

Many pros and cons with this game

  • Summary: I picked this one up a couple of weeks ago, and waited till now to write this review, as to really try and get the full pros/cons of this game. Let me tell ya, this game does have its fair share of both. Starting off with graphics, this game is PS1 at best. EVERY player has a mullett hair cut, no matter if they even have hair in real life. The player's sticks sometimes look much taller than they are, almost cartoonish.

still a backwards step from 2K7

  • Summary: NHL 2K9 contains most the of the same glitches as 2K8. The pass button works about 75% of the time (an improvement from about 60% for 2K8.) I think it's fair to say that anytime the pass button works less than 99% of the time the game shouldn't even be released. To be fair most of the time you can now pass out of your defensive end into the neutral zone (unlike 2K8,) but passing in the slot is hit or miss (I don't mean that it's hard to do.

Best Hockey game on the PS2

  • Summary: Well, NHL 2k9 is a spitting image of NHL 2k8, except for a few minor features and glitch fixes. The gameplay this year is a lot smoother and the puck has a realistic feel to it, flipping in the air over the goalie's head for instance. The skill stick can be used by moving the right analog with L1 held down on offense, and defense it's the same too. You can protect the puck with just right analog by itself on offense as well.

Same old, same old

  • Summary: Nothing new here in the latest release of 2K sports. NHL 2K9 is EXACTLY the same as the 08 version (except for the 2K Beats songs and the new commentary). A lot of the new players do not have pictures (ex: Carey Price & Sergei Kostitsyn), and that shows you how much effort 2K put in this game. On top of that, the roster dates from the end of the last season. Even the downloadable roster is dated from the 20th of may (ex: Hossa is still in Pittsburg).
