Wow... i expected so much more. I played it on the ps3 and 360 and its a completely different game sure they have be a pro mode and you can edit your character a little bit but you can only be a foward or defencemen but there is no goalie. Man the graphics almost seem like they went from bad to worse. It looks like a nitendo 64 game which is really sad but now that the Ps3 has taken over theres not much to expect. I mean i just played one game but still its been easy on the hardest difficulty and the pulkcheckings is bad stickhandeling isn't as good as it is on other stations. Overall the game is dissapointing but still probably better than 2k9 on the ps2. I suggest if you have a ps3 or 360 just get nhl 09 its so good on there its a dreamy game lol, yea im sending nhl 09 back after playing alittle online... not that its gonna be good or anything but still.
I personally think that this game is a bunch of bull. All they did is make 2 things different from the past years. they made the graphics better ... obviously!!!!!! and they made be a pro mode. otherwise the game has major flaws. they focus on new things way to much. how about making the game more challenging. every year i rent or buy the game and in a week i am too good for it. they need to defenitely find a way to make the game more fair, and where he goalies dont suck. you take like 100 shots and score 10 goals. were as the cpu take ten and score 7. its sooo annoying!!!!!!!!!!!!!! they need to slow down and focus on the things that are really important. plus, in be a pro mode you never get the pass and all your teamates suck!!!!
