    Horrendously frustrating. Looks great, plays atrociously. Feels like it was programmed and playtested by soulless automatons. Oh yeah, we are talking about EA, so it makes sense.

    Every aspect of this game is flawed. Major issues that existed in NHL09 are still present in NHL10. This is by far, one of the worst NHL releases by EA to date.

    Sure it's fun for Hockey fans, but for the rest of the gaming community, no dice!

    A ton of flaws. The only way to score is to glitch and the AI basically will play much better for the weaker team. It influences who wins and loses and it makes it dependent on computers instead of humans to find the result. There hasn't been updates since October and their updates made it worse.. very disappointed. 09 was great.

  1. It’s good. It’s really good. Fans of the NHL games will not be disappointed and newcomers to the series will find one of the deepest, enjoyable, and most engaging hockey game EA has ever put out to date.
  2. A nearly flawless title; only the most cynical and jaded gamers will take issue with any of the game’s extremely minor problems.
  3. A game that builds on its critically-lauded predecessor with fine new features, NHL 10 is a great follow-up sports title that other franchises should take a hint from.
