Maybe its just me and my friends but we currently have a love hate relationship with this game. The online features are great and being able to be in the locker room with a bunch of your friends before a game is funny. However, the amount of trash goals that get past the goalie are a joke. I understand its a video game but it seems like they have taken a step backwards on goalie play compared to this games predecessor. Over all Im glad i have game fly and did not waste money on this, game could be worse but it could also be much much better.
This is my first hockey game I have ever purchased, and wow, it is a fun game. Smooth gameplay, good AI, real fun online play against others. True performance skaing, GM connected game place, and NHL moments live (barring a lockout) seems to be real cool. Outstanding graphics, and backwards controllable skating - which I have never seen before. This is the ultimate hockey video game.
