NHL 2K9

  • Excerpt: NHL 2K9 is on the Nintendo Wii thanks to 2K Sports. This is one impressive hockey video game with a couple of minor issues. Those two issues are fighting ( a lot of hockey games like to include that ), and the lyrics to a lot of the music.

Realistic hockey game with cool Wii controls.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a near-authentic pro hockey simulation, right down to the violent hits and fighting. Engaging in brawls is handled randomly, therefore isn't as easy to execute. Also, you're always punished by a 5-minute penalty.

  • Conclusion: NHL 2K9 isn’t a bad game, but it doesn’t manage to stand out either. EA has done a fantastic job with their sports franchises on the Wii, providing fully fleshed-out experiences while taking advantage of the Wii’s capabilities and providing all the features that you’d expect from the game on another...

  • Conclusion: those thirsty man in the desert situations where a glass of water, even if it's kind of brown, will be consumed gladly. Besides featuring the standard Quick Game, Season, and Franchise modes, NHL 2K9 also features, Shootout, Mini-Rink (2-on-2) and Pond Hockey modes that provide an arcade experience...

  • Excerpt: How can a hockey game look so crappy and still be best-in-class? By being the only hockey game on Wii, of course. Best crap graphics money can buy, as it were.

Gamertell Review: NHL 2K9 for Wii

TechnologyTell
9 October 2008
  • Excerpt: I’ve come to understand there are gamers who have no interest in hockey as a sport but love hockey video games. I am not one of these people because I love hockey. Despite living in an area of Ohio where talk of hockey is still followed up with, “Aren’t they all on strike?
  • Pros: Solid hockey action. Intuitive controls. Fun fighting system.
  • Cons: Hazy graphics. Occasional frame rate drops. Horrible menu system. Horrible manual.

Expert Review

GameSpot
22 September 2008
  • Summary: Time travel just became possible, at least for hockey fans. Toss NHL 2K9 into any console system and you'll immediately feel transported back to 2006, which seems to have been the last year that any significant improvements were made to this hockey series.
  • Pros: Wii Nunchuk control does a great job of simulating real skating, Challenging on the ice, if not particularly smart or realistic
  • Cons: Awkward passing and shooting with the Wii Remote, AI problems and some cheap scoring, Visuals are in need of a serious overhaul, Play-by-play commentary is repetitive and the soundtrack spectacularly grating

  • Conclusion: It's really not a bad setup though, even if I generally sucked with it. I simply think the many different actions that can be done in hockey translated to greater complexity on Wii, when it feels more streamlined elsewhere.
