WOW! What a disapointment!

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 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.

so as you could tell the title really says it all. I do think the game play is solid. graphecs are aful for the wee evvry person looks the frekin same. still really game play and very fun so that really makes up for it. also any person can run at the goal and shoot the puck in. Yes i really actualy think the goalie could score if he wasent so weighed down. thats all for now
