Summary: Overall, this is a pretty decent game. If desired, it can create a very realistic game of hockey using the right sliders. Despite some major flaws with animations and players feeling like they are "stuck in the mud" this is still a solid game. Puck physics are not great with this game, but the 360 degree stick control makes defense extremely realistic. If you are a hardcore hockey fan that enjoys a sim game of hockey, this is for you.
