    Personally as a HUGE hockey fan i love this game. The games go by fast so if you don't have much time you can still fit in a few games! also you can update the rosters to go along with real life rosters. As you may know you can play as the great one Wayne Gretzky. and no matter what team you put him on could turn a team from bad to good and from good to unbeatable.

The only Problems i have with this game is how simple it is to score a goal. Any fast shot or awkward angle shot will 75% of the time go in the back of the net. Also the graphics aren't to well..you cant tell Wayne Gretzky apart from Patrick Kane. And the dekeing is..just horrible! it rarely ever picks up the motion sensor. overall its a good game to pass the time. Expand

    NHL Slapshot is neither a graphical wonder or a gameplay marvel from the great hockey rink in the sky. Instead it's a solid and surprisingly focused round of arcade hockey with plenty of polish in all the right places. Die-hard hockey fans will want to stick with NHL 11, but for the rest of us, this is a great place to start.

    Veterans to the series who want their NHL game to be as realistic as possible will still want to go with the PS3 or 360 versions. But gamers who want a fun, faster paced version of the NHL, coupled with good use of motion controls, will definitely want to check out NHL Slapshot.
  3. If the goal with NHL Slapshot was to create a fun hockey game for the family, EA made it. The game can entertain kids as well as devoted NHL fans. But be sure to play it with others.
