Fun but disappointed

Eric Blair, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: Overall, the game is fun and can be played time and again. On ice action is fairly realistic and franchise mode is a load of fun. However, there are some faults. The main one being freezing issues. I was six wins away from winning my second straight cup in franchise mode when the game froze and I couldn't continue play. After some research I learned this has happened with other players.

Nice to see NHL on the wii

J. V. Nash, Amazon
27 December 2008
  • Summary: I played this game for about seven straight hours after I got it for Christmas. First off the problems: Announcers occasionlly will say the wrong players name. Example Ryan Miller is in net and they say Price made the save. Menus are difficult to navigate and 2k9 doesn't bother to provide you with an manual. I'm still not sure how I can call players up from minors. No instruction on faceoffs.

Disappointing NHL debut on the Wii

N. Durham "Big Evil", Amazon
7 October 2008
  • Summary: It's about time that we got an NHL game on the Wii, and NHL 2K9 is here to be just that. Boasting controls that take advantage of the Wii-mote, NHL 2K9 sounds promising, but sadly it doesn't quite deliver the way that it should. The Wii's nunchuk controls provide some brilliant skating controls that nicely simulate real skating, but passing and shooting the puck with the Wii-mote is a different story.

No Online....very big let down.

Iceman1984 , GameStop

  • Summary: This game is a pretty good game. The controls bring a fun twist to NHL games. The graphics are not the best....but probably the best that the Wii can do. The biggest let down is that there is no online play...and you can't update the roster like you can on NHL 2009 for the PS3 and XBox 360, although the roster is updated to a point (other than McCabe still playing for the Leafs) With NHL 2K9 not able to go online I kind of wish that EA brought NHL 2009 out for the Wii...
