Game Description

The 2K series has driven a Zamboni over previous NHL games to create a hockey experience that's as pure and inviting as a fresh sheet of ice. NHL 2K9 has been rebuilt to put the fun back in the game. The realistic details and gameplay you'd expect are here, but you'll experience them with revamped controls that are much easier to use. The result is that you spend less time thinking and more time just playin' hockey. All-new in-game presentation features enhanced player animations, commentary, and enhanced online content, plus a user-friendly franchise mode. They've also played up some of the game's best quirks, adding a Zamboni mini-game, a new fighting engine, and even play-off beards.
