  1. EA's game has grown into the role of the hockey simulation, while NHL 2K has become a better and better version of what hard core hockey fans see as a casual game - lots of scoring. This year is no different, and NHL 2K10 has made some of the most needed improvements while staying consistent to its identity - as a welcoming game that gives us the chance to play like the Ovechkins and Crosbys.

    2K's NHL game is still maturing - it needs another year of fine-tuning to release its full flavor - but still, you won't be disappointed if you partake of it now. [Nov 2009, p.81]

    I will attempt to review the game without referencing other reviewers. I have played about 5 30 minute games since picking the game up on I will attempt to review the game without referencing other reviewers. I have played about 5 30 minute games since picking the game up on 15-SEP-09. Gameplay: 8.5 Graphics: 9 The players look very good and move just as well AI (with default sliders): 8.5 They play as real hockey players do, positioning themselves where they should and even covering for an out of position teammate. Controls: 8 ( allowing for the fact that they are configurable) The only issue I can state i have is occasionally a slapshot will not go off as soon as I wish. Although from what I can tell this may be due to different player rankings. A number of reviewers complain about the style of controls. This is a very subjective aspect of any game. But I will go into what I like about the controls. First and foremost I enjoy the fact that I can use a style of control that suits my style of play and my youngest daughter can do the same. I use Pro controls and the right stick. My daughter uses the lowest settings and buttons to shoot. I love the stick control both with and without the puck. With the above noted delay that occurs occasional when taking a slapshot. I LOVE the fact that the speedburst remains, regardless of what anyone would like to think, hockey players do occasionally change up speeds. The fact that I can also decide when to turn around and skate backwards is also a plus. Too many times when being turned around in other games, I did not want to turn at that point. So overall I have thoroughly enjoyed the game so far. No game stopping bugs like in NHL 2k9 and I hope none surface. Will be giving online a try this weekend and hope it lives up to the hype.
