My rookie LWer in be-a-pro gets 4 games with the Thrashers to prove whether he can stay in the NHL. After 4 games, I have 1 goal and 3 assists (and an A- rating average) and lead the team in points. Too bad for me...The GM sends me down to the minors because I don't have what it takes to make it in the NHL. Not even the biggest EA fanboy can defend this kind of nonsense. Rather than the dynamic game you'd expect from be-a-pro, you get a game that insists upon being linear, forcing you to very slowly work your way through the system.
I really dont understand what is so great about this game. The controls are the worst out of every nhl game i have ever played. Though the graphics are amazing, the gameplay and controls leave much to be desired.
