Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty cool and low price First off, this game is awesome! Good graphics, amazing gameplay and a pretty good bang for the buck. At a low price! it's not hard and not easy. only if all games can have these description! P.S. since my older bros play the 360, i made my own psn online ID instead of using theirs. if you want to be my friend its living life 10 (not the creative type).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best hockey game ever made, maybe even sports in general After playing nhl 08, my expectations for this game weren't that great. Boy did they surprise me! After purcahsing this game, it's alls i played for weeks. And that was even before i discovered the awesome online play! after finding the online mode, and joining a team, i played for hours at a time, every single day. for me, it was more addicting than call of duty's nazi zombies. The one big problem i had with it, which i think most long time nhl game players would agree with me on, is the commentating. they don't really change that up much year after year, so you hear the same voices, saying the same exact thing year after year, which gets very annoying. So if you just turn the volume off, your good to go with one of the greatest sports games on earth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best sports game ever? It could be, even it's not fair to the other sports, it's that close. It's more than halfway through the real NHL season, but why not a review now, after playing a season of 'be a pro' mode, and a season of dynasty mode. Wow. That said, be warned. The AI cheapness - that's in almost every video game - can be shameless. If you score a lot against the cpu, the game will take over and make your shots go over the net or off the post a lot. The cpu will also take 'dives' a lot to give them a powerplay in which they almost always score! In other words, when they need a goal, look out! This can be overcome with skills, but... Be a pro mode was a blast, I actually got called up after one minor league game in which i scored 2 goals! I did like dynasty mode more, because you have control over everything. I won the cup as the Dallas Stars, and liked the opportunity to play as your AHL affiliate if you wanted to. Practice mode, goalie mode online; hockey heaven!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game of the Year I am not a huge hockey fan, but this game is badass. The be-a-pro mode is the best of the EA series. Starting in the AHL and working your way up is school to see all the teams not many people know about. The authentic approach of having to be apart of a line and going on and off is cool. Its unlike any other hockey game. Don't wast your money on the 2K game. This one brings it. The hits are awesome, the slap shot and wristers are sweet. You are in full control of your player, from dekeing, to rocking someone into the boards, control the stick on defense to poke. Shooting is the best part though, you can rip some mad shots on the goalie. You can even play as the goalie, its kind of slow but its there! Online is cool playing with a whole team of actual people. This game rocks, one of the best games I have ever played.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great As a very large hockey fan, and a player, i found that this was the most realistic hockey video game that i have ever played in my whole life. As a goalie, it was particularly exciting to finally get to show off my skills in the online video game form. The goaltending controls and and movements shown throughout the game are very realistic and very fluid. Other than this aspect of the game, there are far fewer glitches that may have appeared in the other games. In many of the older versions of the game, players on the ice would slide without skating and goalies would let up goals that were very, very flukey. In this game, everything seems to flow like it was a real hockey game. The players look like they are actually skating and shooting the puck. all the way down to the last detail, it seems like a real hockey game. also, the teams, jerseys, and customization that is available is out of this world. Overall, this game is brilliant for all those who enjoy hockey, or even if you dont, a person that enjoys a great old fasioned time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, Soild NHL Game Well if your looking for a good NHL game to buy NHL 09 is it. First off the graphics are just outstanding and the animations add a more in depth personal feel to the game. New this year is Be a Pro mode which lets you create your player and guide him through the minor leagues up to the Bigs (NHL). Be a Pro mode is very in depth and you can customize your player all the way down to the color of the tape on your hockey stick! The game itself I found to be quite easy to pick up and the controls can be customized to fit your needs and style of play. For the most part I have found that I have no complaints with this game and I have had no problems with it at all. So if your a die hard hockey fan or just the causal sports gamer looking for something new, NHL 09 is the way to go.
