Isn't Worth $60

EA delivered big time in 09' and introduced Be A Pro Mode. It remains to be the coolest feature of the NHL franchise. The only new features worth mentioning is breaking your stick and the new hitting mechanics. The hits are awesome and more crisp than ever, but that's about it for this game. I'll buy this when it drops to $30 in June next year 2 months before NHL 12 comes out.....

Good game, but lacking.

Pros: Best controls and options of any hockey game, I have ever played... so much control.

Cons: I have played the previous years hockey games, and they are all amazing when it comes to hits, this game has no exciting value to hits, the tackles are extremely weak in this game, there is no excitement, no hard hits, its extremely sad to see.

Overall: NHL 10 vs NHL11 = the same... NHL 10 has great hits, but not the amazing new features NHL11 has, and NHL11 has horrible hits... Whatever you want more you have to pick between these two.

Hopefully NHL12 will be the best of NHL10 and 11 combined...

As each year goes by I always look forward the the next EA NHL game. As the graphics always please the eye. Im always disappointed with controler layout using the right stick on the controller to shoot. It always feels that the shot is not as hard as it would be with the settings on classic. And it translates over to the gameplay as well. Even though it provides the classic setting it still limits to what you can do vs. a player that is using the normal setting. I love my achievements and most you will need to do online, in some type of league. And personaly theres too many other games on the market at this point id rather spend my time playing right now then this years hockey. Maybe year.
