So the first thing I noticed is how they completly changed the controls from 2K7. Whick in my opinion was a mistake. They made it so hard to just simply shoot with all of the buttons you have to push that the only person I know that could play this game would be Goro.
Honestly, without preference, I think this game is complete trash. After owning NHL 08, which I LOVE RENT THIS, this game felt like i went back 10 years. The graphics on my non-hd tv SUCK (yea I know but im not made of money) so just rent NHL 08 and save yourself a lot of frustration and hate. BTW, I play goalie in hockey and the goalie mode is fun here its not at all like real life, but fun. Got this game a 2 instead of 1.
