Its like playing the same level over and over again...

  • Summary: I bought this for my 5 year old. I hate it, and he likes it. The game play consists of shooting robots. The scenes are all the same just different colors. So boring, the only reason my 5 year old likes it is that he just shoots robots and doesn't have to think anything through. I don't recommend this game at all.

NOT as good as they say! Don't buy it!!

  • Summary: Everyone's making NHL 09 out to be the greatest sports game ever made...don't believe them! It's fun at first, until you start to play online and you realize that there are so many glitchy "cheese" goals that the game is completely ruined. There are a few shots that go in 90% of the time, but the main problem is that the defensive AI is so poor that they'll let any halfway decent human opponent skate right to the net.

Very unrealistic because of the goalies

  • Summary: This is a fun game in many ways, but with some very frustrating drawback. EA Sports has been producing this game for 17 years now and they have received the same criticism for all those years - still they seem unable to do anything about it. Here goes: 1. As in every other NHL-game in this series, the AI is very bad. Even if you play at the most advanced level, you will very soon dominate the game completely. 2. The goaltenders are just as pathetic as ever.

Great game when I can get it to play

  • Summary: This game freezes during game play or sometimes I can't even play because the disk will come up as unreadable. For the past 3 years I have had this problem with EA Sports NHL games. Every other game I have works perfectly.

Great game when it works

Joe Collins, Amazon
1 December 2008
  • Summary: This is an awesome game. Only problem is that on some 360's it consistently freezes up, often at the very end of a game. You have to reset your 360 and lose all progress you had made up to that point. This is the only game out of 15 that I own that ever freezes. EA's quality control is horrible.

Game does not work

P. West, Amazon
2 October 2008
  • Summary: This game is plagued by disc read errors and will not work properly. Dirty disk error messages appear and the game freezes up. EA Sports and Xbox websites have instructions for clearing the memory cache to "fix" the problem. Once the memory cache is cleared, the game still freezes up with the same error message. If your xbox 360 has a memory card instead of a hard drive, it still freezes up anyway.
