Simple hockey sim, best for newbies -- watch open chat.

Summary: Parents need to know that NHL 2K10 is a straightforward simulation of professional hockey. With that, of course, comes some physical play such as checking players into boards or even starting brawls. However, the game doesn't show blood. The game is also playable online with open chat, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to children under the age of 12.
Conclusion: First of all, you’re not going to give up the online play like you do in many Wii titles. You can invite another play in at just about any time and it all works pretty well. The only downside was when there were more than five other remote players but this could have also been caused by other internet factors beyond the games control. peripherals you’ve been racking up in the corner.
Excerpt: It’s the 10th anniversary for 2K Sports’ NHL games and NHL 2K10 is prepped to celebrate on the Nintendo Wii with new online play, support for Wii Motion Plus and Wii Speak, new controls, and a new Superskills mode featuring gamers own Mii’s. Let’s hit the ice and see if NHL 2K10 makes the team or gets sent to the minors.
Excerpt: NHL 2K10 faces stiff competition from EA's NHL 10. Considering the continual amount of improvements that are added every year to its competitor, the 2K series hasn't been given the attention it deserves. Compared side-to-side, 2K10 is not as visually impressive, has less gameplay options available for both offline and online play, and won't be able to hold your attention for as long as NHL 10. It is however, a lot of fun, and in the end that counts for quite a bit.
Excerpt: Once again, NHL 2K10 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is the hockey game for the other guy. 2K Sports' treatment of the sport is the yin to NHL 10's yang, boasting arcade accessibility for casual fans instead of its rival's rigorous attention to on-ice authenticity. While the game is unlikely to be taken seriously by members of the hardcore shinny set, it really wasn't made for them.
Pros: Easy for casual hockey fans to pick up and play, Innovative multiplayer options, Relaxed, change-of-pace soundtrack
Cons: Unrealistic arcade feel on the ice, especially when it comes to scoring, Dated visuals and audio effects
NHL 2K10 Cover Athlete Revealed: Alexander Ovechkin
15 June 2009
Excerpt: Alexander Ovechkin will grace the cover of 2K's NHL 2K10 this year. I say grace because he's the coolest star in the NHL and maybe all of sports. How can you not enjoy watching him? Fast, hard-hitting, enthusiastic, right now he's everything a sports fan could want.
Summary: Pour conclure, NHL 2K10 a subi toute une amélioration comparativement à la version de l’an passé. Les concepteurs ont su écouter les amateurs et ainsi peaufiner le jeu afin qu’il soit plus agréable d’y jouer. L’ajout d’un mode en ligne et l’utilisation de la Wii Motion Plus font de ce jeu un très bon achat pour les amateurs de hockey et aussi pour tous ceux qui possèdent la petite console blanche de Nintendo.
Pros: +Graphismes améliorés +Wii Motion Plus +Prix +Un jeu de hockey pur et simple +Mini jeux avec les Miis +Mode en ligne
Cons: -Difficile de se connecter en ligne -Latence en ligne
Conclusion: En définitive, NHL 2K10 dans sa version est donc un titre de grande qualité, contrairement à ses homologues sur consoles haute-définition. C'est essentiellement grâce au Wii Motion Plus que le soft dévoile son véritable intérêt, les contrôles bénéficiant énormément de la présence du nouvel accessoire de Nintendo.
Pros: La foule de mode de jeux, Les contrôles avec le Wii Motion Plus
Cons: Les graphismes pas top, Pas de commentaires français
