Summary: NHL 2k10 was rather disappointing. I remember playing the older versions and they were about as good and had better gameplay. The Zamboni game is fun, but that is about where the good points end.
Terrible game, waste of money, and you should buy NHL 11

Summary: 2 stars is being very nice!! First, the game does have roster sharing, which is real nice, and I wish every sports game had that. I also enjoyed the Zamboni rides b/w periods, this is a very cool idea, and is actually the most enjoyable gaming experience you get from this game. The soundtrack is pretty good too (not great, but good). Other than that, thats it!! The rest sucked!!! The gameplay is awful!!!
Summary: I see a lot of 2K9 references, but believe it or not, I was in love with NHL 2K6. Reason being, it was given to me as a gift when I first got my Xbox 360, so I played the living daylights out of the game, even though the rosters were badly out of whack. The gameplay was just like I remember from the Sega Genesis NHL 93 games, with a few nice upgrades and MUCH better graphics. NHL 2K10 has some pretty sick graphics.
Summary: Ok, The first reviewer seemed a bit harsh and long winded right ? Well if he were wrong, I'd agree... To be very clear I was excited to buy both NHL games this year with a store credit I had so why not try them both and keep playing the better of the two ??? Last year I only played 2K9 and frankly it was above average. Graphics were solid, commentary was far too repetitive, the same song played every goal, but still a very well rounded game... This years offering ?
Summary: This game seems like a Beta version of what should be a future release, but unfortunately, this is the "finished product". GAMEPLAY: Very slow and sluggish at times. Even using the "speed burst" just makes them move at the same slow speed, but they just seem to be trying harder to achieve this slow rate of motion. Also, when they have an "instant replay", 9 times out of 10 (or worse!
Summary: I absolutely loved NHL 2K9 (last year's release). Even though it had its quirks, I played well over a thousand games online and got more than my money's worth out of it. Please keep in mind that I only play online. I have never played another game for even a tenth of the time I spent playing NHL 2K9 this past year. The gameplay felt crisp, accurate and intuitive.
Excerpt: NHL 2K10 has lost its edge in the pst few years with its rival NHL 10 overtaking it in the ratings, this year is no exception. This is the evryday mans hockey game, with quick pick up and play arcade gameplay very much different to NHL 10s authentic take on the sport. It hasn't changed alot since last years addition and is almost identical.
Pros: Easy pick up and play Style, Nice New Soundtrack, Multiplayer is much better
Cons: Unrealistic Feel, Scoring is too easy, Dated Visuals and Sounds
Summary: Helt okej spel men håller inte riktigt måttet i konkurrensen mot NHL 10. Dock är det tillagt ett antal härliga moves som kan gör att spelet kan vara värt att köpa om man hittar det för rätt pris.
