  • Excerpt: Normal côté jouabilité, EA rééquilibre le jeu. En effet, dans la précédente version, vous pouviez utiliser le Skill Stick afin de faire des attaques et des feintes plus dévastatrices. Aujourd’hui, il est possible de contrer ces attaques via le Skill Stick défensif et ainsi voler la balle à un adversaire ou encore mettre un coup dans sa crosse, bref vous avez à disposition un réel moyen de parer ou de stopper net l’attaque d’un adversaire.
  • Pros: Ambiance, Nombre de mode de jeux, Mode en ligne, De vraies améliorations par rapport à la version 2008
  • Cons: RAS

Rich hockey simulation with clever career options.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this hockey sim closely mirrors real professional hockey, right down to the violent hits and fighting, and the ads displayed all around the rink. While engaging in mid-game scraps is pretty easy to pull off, you're always punished by a 5-minute penalty. The game is playable online , a feature Common Sense Media doesn't recommend for kids under age 12.

Overly simplistic, tedious tie-in to the cartoon.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton's Robotic Revenge is an action/adventure game that features plentiful cartoon violence. Players shoot and slap enemy robots as they attempt to recover a stolen recipe. The game is the latest marketing arm of the SpongeBob franchise, and kids who play it may ask for more toys or to watch the television show.

  • Excerpt: Ice Hockey is a dangerous game: fights are allowed, players traditionally brandish weapons, and smashing folk through a window is actually encouraged (by the crowd at least) and all of this happens on ice: a locale where man was not meant to stand. Taking all of this into account, it is a great public service EA have performed: to allow everyone to get involved in the brutal fast paced action, without getting hurt, or having to suffer the embarrassment of trying to...

  • Excerpt: September is a great month. Hockey training camps are in full swing and the NHL season is just around the corner. For gamers, it also means the annual battle for hockey supremacy takes place with 2K Sports’ and EA Sports’ NHL franchises going head to head. For years I supported 2K’s effort as EA Sports lacked the level of realism I have come to enjoy. I stayed away from EA’s NHL game for seven years until NHL 07 came along.

  • Conclusion: is an entertaining game. The addition of "Be A Pro" mode gives it an edge and allows you to take your character to the big leagues. It is a fun experience and supplements the other game modes well.
