Summary: I'll get right to it. NHL 09 is one of the worst video games, if not the worst game ever made. Honestly, it is that bad. I don't know how anybody can recommend this to someone or play it. Its not fun at all, you can only score the same way every time. Glitch goaling? Wow...goalies, terrible, CPU D, terrible. It just isn't fun at all, its all the same goals every time. Penatly calls are bad too. Online, its the same stuff.
Summary: First off, I love NHL, but by far this is the most ridiculous game I have ever played. Not only does this NHL game not follow NHL rules, it allows people to cheat the game by scoring certain goals over and over again. Pros: -Graphics are great! I feel like I'm really watching NHL hockey! -The controls are great but I find myself controlling the guy stuck behind the net when I need to stop a goal. I think they need to fix how to select the player.
Summary: I recently purchase this game on the day it came out. First of all, the graphics and the player motions looked great. I've been noticing that the game has bugs. Every time I would go the roster management or anything else, an error message comes up saying that the disc is unreadable please clean disc. I can still hear the game music, but no picture. I was looking forward of playing a regular season. Now it looks like I'll be playing Madden 09 and NCAA Football 09.
