    Great game. Although it's difficult to learn with no tutorial, I almost wanted to give up. Once you get a hang of the controls with the analog sticks it really works! I really felt like I was on the ice. I could almost tast the ice.

    Great graphics and believable hockey atmosphere. Where I mainly see room for improvement are the European leagues, which often have wrong jerseys, outdated rosters etc.

  1. Visually enticing and richly entertaining, this may be one of the best sports games of the year.
  2. All told it’s a compelling package that makes NHL 10 an outstanding upgrade over NHL 09 and it’s hard to ask for much more than that from a yearly sports release.
  3. NHL 10 is EA Sports’ best hockey title yet, offering considerably improved gameplay and another hour-eating mode in Be A GM.
