    This is an average title. It looks pretty good, some of the features work as advertised, but don't be fooled. Most of the 'New' features here are just repackaged (or not even that) old ones that were removed in the past; like Season mode. Not exactly strikingly new.

It looks pretty good, some of the features work as advertised, but don't be fooled. Most of the 'New' features here are just repackaged (or not even that) old ones that were removed in the past; like Season mode. Not exactly strikingly new. There are SERIOUS bugs regarding online lag, game freezing, some gameplay bugs and one of the new modes has a serious problem where it has a large probability of freezing ingame. It gives the stench of unfinished, and that's just unacceptable. I'm not sure what game these 'critics' are reviewing, but it certainly isn't the one they're selling on the store shelves. If you just want to play a couple games in a 'play now' setting, it's pretty decent; the fighting is improved, and the after the whistle thing is interesting the first couple of times, but the rest of the modes have just too many inconsistencies, bugs, and general lack of polish to give this anything more than a 5.

  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.
