This is hands down the worst game I have ever played. I was huge fan of hockey games, until now. The game play is complicated. There are far to many things to do. If I wanted to seven things to do at once, I would play real hockey. It started out bad and just got worse. I would not wish this game upon my worst enemy. I really hope someone comes out with hockey that does not make me screen obscenities at my TV.

A hockey game for the WII. Once I got a WII console, I couldn't wait! I live for hockey games. EA has cornered the market in my eyes...sure other companies have made good hockey games, but EA has set the standard. I saw the commercials for NHL 2K10, and thought it looked awesome...read the reviews and thought..."no way...they've got it wrong". They did, it was worse than they had said. I've never in my life seen a game with such inconsistent play control. Often when I scored, the other team would automatically score too. It was crazy, how the controller would seem to shut off. I would be unable to affect anything. My players would literally turn away from the play, while I struggled to gain control of one of them. The game seems to have a severe preoccupation with tripping penalties. I like physical play, so I check like a madman. I would check a guy real well, only to have the game penalize me for tripping. The replay would even show I'd done nothing wrong. It was bizarre. It could have been a great game, it's just poorly done.
