same as nhl09 some new qualities but be a pro is lacking customized equipment, you cant change skaters helmet colors etc. and when is ea going to allow line changes for the old control style "ea when u say customizable controls, we sould be able to customize them!"
If you liked NHL 09, you'll find a lot of simalarities in NHL 10. The menu interface is pretty much the same as 09, and, so is the gameplay.
It may take awhile to notice, but there have been a bunch of subtle changes made in the options, gameplay, and online. These new insertions to the gaming experiance have added another degree of realism that us hardcore hockey fans appreciate.
All in all, I'de give NHL 10 an 8/10.
Not bad EA, could be a little better next time around
