NHL 2K11 Review

Cheat Code Central
29 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Does it beat the competition? Once again, hockey fans who own a Wii console and no others don’t have much of a choice; EA’s NHL 11 isn’t slated to appear on Nintendo’s machine. Multiplatform gamers, however, must make a hard decision: would they rather stick to the familiar interface and high-quality graphics of NHL 11, or give a challenging, but ultimately rewarding, new setup a chance?

Decent hockey title includes fighting, needs some polish.

Common Sense Media
25 November 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a straightforward simulation of the National Hockey League. Players can choose one of the league's teams and guide them to Stanley Cup glory. They can also participate in a series of other casual game modes and other mini-games. Players can engage in fights during games, but none of the brawls are graphic. The game is playable online with open chat, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to children under the age of 12.

NHL 2K11

Game Revolution
6 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Slippery when frozen. Zamboni racing! Hurry and smooth that ice!  We got a couple teams trying to play hockey and that rink better shine. 60 seconds… GO ! Yes, a zamboni challenge. One example of many time-killing mini-games that are brought to you on behalf of NHL 2K11 . A Wii exclusive this year, the latest hockey title from 2K Sports will have you swinging your Wii-mote through a variety of exercises that test your skating, shooting, and overall ice-related skills.
  • Pros: Good movement on ice, Mini-games galore, Clunky shooting and passing, Frustrating menu, Not for the hardcore fan

  • Excerpt: 2K Sports' NHL 2K11 was on the cusp of being the Wii's best hockey game by acclamation. Then EA came along and made a better hockey game for Wii. The nerve of those guys.

14 September 2010
  • Summary: 2K took a big chance this year and put all its hockey eggs in one basket: the Nintendo Wii. Casual hockey fans will find 2K11 an enjoyable experience, while those looking for a more serious hockey sim should probably look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Good looking Wii graphics, Classic Controller schemes work well on the ice, Fun collection of casual mini-games on the side
  • Cons: Motion controls aren't always responsive, AI can be slow at times, Online play is there, but lackluster

Operation Sports
9 September 2010
  • Summary: It's a shame that the gameplay is not better because the number and quality of the modes are more indicative of a higher quality title. If you can stomach some of the game's drawbacks, you will find a lot to do here. However, hardcore puckheads will be turned off by the game's flaws, and casual users have better options on the console.
  • Pros: Road to the Cup could be excellent., Plenty of modes to give you stuff to do., Deking controls are spot on with MotionPlus.
  • Cons: Gameplay is very below average., Game is largely unchanged from last year., Shooting controls are inconsistent.

Expert Review

Video Game talk
6 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Abandoning versions for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 this year, NHL 2K11 is a Wii-exclusive affair from developer Visual Concepts. No idea why they conceded to Electronic Arts on the Microsoft and Sony consoles, but NHL 11 will be the hockey game for those players. There are a ton of Wii specific features included in the game like Mii players, WiiSpeak compatibility and obviously motion controls.
