  1. New motion controls make the Wii version of NHL 2K10 an impressive and unique arcade hockey game.
  2. NHL 2K10 is the most complete sports package on the Wii. While it may take some time to get the nuances of the controls down, this is the most satisfying version of the game on offer. Forget HD, this is all about gameplay, and it delivers.
  3. Overall, for a game that was supposed to be more about the arcade experience of hockey it feels like a more complete solution than the “other product” and impressed me at every turn.
  4. One of the most fully featured sports games on the Wii console. [Oct 2009, p.87]

    NHL2K10 has a simply staggering amount of content in it. To say that this game is a value at its price is an understatement, but while there’s an insane amount of modes and options – 2K sliders, MotionPlus, WiiSpeak support, online leagues, 10-console team-up mode, season mode, franchise mode, pond hockey, practice mode, Mii Superskills, create-a-player, create-a-team, and the list goes on and on -there’s also a lack of polish throughout.
  6. While there could be some further improvements to the motion controls, presentation, and AI, NHL 2K10 should be considered a must-buy for anyone remotely interested in the sport.

    Motion Plus works Ok for nhl 2k10, its still pretty unsensitive. And its super hard to play online because of nintendo's crappy online.

It worked well for me though until i got a xbox 360 and played NHL 10. Full Review »

    Worst game I've ever played. Unintuitive menus & unresponsive controls. I can never make the players do what I want. A lot of down time Worst game I've ever played. Unintuitive menus & unresponsive controls. I can never make the players do what I want. A lot of down time at every possible opportunity, once after a penalty the game showed the referee for 10 seconds and I could only watch... Same at face offs it takes forever for play to resume.

    Love this game. for a low price and if you've got mates, the Wii version has got us all going, the PS3 version is too easy... way too Love this game. for a low price and if you've got mates, the Wii version has got us all going, the PS3 version is too easy... way too easy. The Wii got it right, there are a few minor glitches but download the patches to resolve. the first sports game to get me yelling at the TV in a long time. love it. Full Review »
