  1. It's still a good hockey game, but all in all it's the same game sold four years in a row anyway. While EA Sports polishes the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, it neglects the PC version, e.g. it's impossible to change the aspect ratio to 16:9 and the maximum resolution is 1280x1024. Time for 2K Sports to step in with it's NHL 2k- series. It worked for NBA 2k9.

    At a price of twenty-dollars this game would have been easier to recommend but at a steeper forty-dollars there's no way that people should invest in an experience that they could have gotten years ago.

    The best old engine you can get. PC players can be happy, all new game modes are present but regardless of these improvements the computer version is just a shade of the console ones. [Dec 2008]
