Summary: I have EA 2011 hockey, and I went back to this game. The controls are just perfect, you can actually do one timers with the regular buttons (not just the thumb stick) and deke the goalies. You have to adjust the settings some to tweak it, but once you get it right, it's so fun.
Summary: only problem is the controls are hard to get use to. but thats it. Also you have to unlock the hockey teams in career, which I think is dumb. Just a great game though. It was at an amazing 6 dollar price
Summary: Great improvement over last years game, game play has been improved by leaps and bounds. s previously mentioned, NHL 07 was a decent title, but EACA was trying to reinvent the wheel on a tight schedule.
