NHL 2k10 has easy to learn, easy to master controls. Anything you do not like as far as gameplay, can be adjusted with in-game sliders. Minimal joystick flicking is needed, as you can pass and shoot with the buttons again! Great game if you just want to play some hockey, and don't want to have to go through instructional video after another just to learn how to shoot.

As a die-hard 2K hockey fan, play NHL10 instead!

Not since 2K7, has this franchise been good/decent to play.

Although the presentation is top-notch for once, not only in the menus but graphics and game intros (finally can compete with EA's version), the gameplay is very sluggish, glitchy and jerky responsiveness. The smoothness was left outta this one. Trying to turbo or get a player moving
to the puck takes an extra half-second or so, creating that frustration that makes me want to punch a wall...(a la the GameFly commercials).

Scoring for the CPU is as easy as an empty-netter on breakaways or odd-man rushes. Goalies cannot stop a thing. I tried two of the best and both Luongo and Osgood just let em fly by.

The inability to get past the cut-scenes between plays also leaves a bad taste in your mouth. Sadly, there is no option to by-pass this.

Overall, just a bad experience that I stopped playing it an hour after starting. Guess i'm forced to bow down the EA Experience again and play NHL 10 for real hockey game.

Oh when will 2K hockey return?
