Developed by award-winning Visual Concepts studios, NHL 2K9 brings a totally rebuilt NHL experience to life with a brand-new in-game presentation system, as well as fresh player animations and controls that you will enjoy from the moment you play your first game, until well after, as you become a seasoned veteran.

Complete with new commentary, a user-friendly franchise mode and upgraded online features, NHL 2K9 brings the fun back to your game console on 9.9.08!

2K Sports is proud to announce NHL 2K9 will be coming to the Wii Console from Nintendo this fall. As the first and only officially licensed NHL and NHLPA video game for Wii, NHL 2K9 will offer fans the fun opportunity to play like the pros using the Wii Remote controller as a hockey stick, and experience the sport in a new, entertaining and wholly unique manner.

  • Wii Remote Shooting - Execute wrist shots with the flick of the Wii Remote or put some power into your stick by holding the B Button while flicking the Wii Remote to blast a slapper.
  • Wii Remote Fighting - Adding a never-before-seen layer of fun to hockey video games, NHL 2K9 features on-ice showdowns. Once a fight has started, punch with the Wii Remote and balance with the Nunchuk to get your opponent off their feet.

  • Wii Remote Goaltending - Gesture-based goaltending allows gamers to get between the pipes and flash the leather. Even take control when it counts the most - in shootouts!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay 2k9 Game! This 2k9 game has vary bad graphics I thought, the gameplay is good but you never get penalty's if you check a guy when he is not on the puck, It's weird because you check a guy to his knees, and the ref who looks like a monkey by the way does nothing!!! The video trailer for this game shown with the game above makes the game look amazing because the guys are all happy and stuff swinging the remote, but it's okay, not the best it's mostly the choppy gameplay a terrible graphics!!!!!!!!!!!!!! go PS2 and Xbox 360, also wii sports resort rocks pretty good, I have NHL 07 PS2 and it is the best because it's graphics a perfect, not in a clear way there just cool, monkey ref's in NHL 12? NO WAY!!!!!!!! NHL 11 for the Xbox 360 was awesome and I enjoyed it as well as this one but not as much cool games theses days!!!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm not a huge hockey fan but I loved it! This was my first time playing a hockey video game. I'm not a huge hockey fan but I tried it out and I loved it! It was hard to play at first but I got a hang of it. The commentators sometimes say stuff that didn't really happen but it is just a piece of electronics.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the best Wii game but not that bad. well with this game being the first NHL game on the Wii, you can't really expect it to be top notch. The game reminded me of NHL 2002 for ps2 which isn't a bad game at all its actually a lot of fun. The graphics are pretty terrible but this isn't ps3 or 360 so you can't really expect that type of quality. I had no idea what to do when I first started playing but once I got the controls down it was pretty simple and became more fun as i kept playing. This game isn't good but its not bad either, its just fun, which is why video games were made in the first place, to have fun with your friends and family playing them. The only thing that bothers me is when you are trying to pass the puck up but if you don't have the remote facing at that player, you end up way off mark, but i eventually got hang of it. If you're looking for some simple and fun hockey game for the Wii, then I would get this one or you can wait until 2k10 comes out because that could be better.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is the worst NHL game I have ever played! When I saw this game coming out I was so exited! Then I got it for christmas, and it SUCKED! One of the most, if not the most, worst game for the wii! How ever it has a few good things. Here are the good and bads about this game. Good: -It has diffrent game modes, such as shootout, training, and even pond hockey! -You can control the goalie, as you make him do butterflys, and dives -New fake shot, allowing you trick your opponents goalie Bad: -The camera angles are so bad! They are way far away from the game! -If you thought the motion would be cool, you guessed wrong. The motion is way off. To pass, you hold A and wiggle thee remote. How stupid is that! -The cpu are so hard to beat! Wanna know why? The camera and controls thats what! -Everytime you load a game, A stuipid NHL Q AND A quiz thing pops up and you have to anwser. It is so annoying! I just want to play! Over all this game wins 2 awards. The worst Hockey game of all time and The worst wii game of all time I strongly HATE this game

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun game This is the first hockey game available for the wii. I had high expectations for this game, and they were met. People are complaining about the graphics. A problem for me was that my tv settings were too bright, and then they were pretty good, but not xbox 360 ps3 good. But that's not the best part of the game, what makes this game so much fun is all the features and controls. It makes checking fun, all you do is swing the nunchuck. You swing the remote to take a shot, and hold down B for a slap shot. You can also get into fights and you get to use the wii remote like you're boxing. Shoot-outs are very fun because when your goalie you move the remote and nunchuck to move the goalie to block the shot. Also you can play 2 v 2 which is a lot of fun if you like a lot of hitting. Also between periods you can drive the zamboni, which I think is the hardest part of the game. Plus at the end you can watch clips of the big hits, goals and the top three players. It's actually fun to watch. Overall, the graphics aren't amazing, but it does a great job of using the wii controls to make a very fun game.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Totally bummed Being it's the only hockey game for the WII, you don't really have a choice if you want a hockey game for the system. The graphics are ok, except for the players. May as well be blank faces. Stat keeping is horrible, no online, and the rules are a bit off. Rosters are missing players, mostly just rookies. Controls are easy to figure out, interesting when you figure them out. But seriously overrated. Plenty of teams to choose from, whether it's international, historic teams, or current teams. The mini games within the game are cool, mini rink, pond hockey, and driving the zamboni. I never was too impressed with 2k sports games to begin with. But this is the only hockey game for the WII, so I guess if you really want a hockey game to play and the WII is your only game system, buy it. But if you are patient to hope next year's version will be better, just wait. Or buy another system for hockey.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from He shoots, and he SCORES!!! Here's another title I wanted as soon as I saw it. The first NHL game on the Wii features every NHL team, every player, but yet in my opinion didn't take advantage of the Wii's capabilities to make us hockey fans who keep good stock of their rosters. No online updates to current rosters via online connectivity meant that the Philadelphia Flyers roster was out of date mere games after the 08-09 season started. Yet, the small things aside, NHL 2K9 takes good control from the Wii's motion sensing which makes it COMPLETELY beat the 360 and PS3 versions. Come on, who doesn't want to swing at that other team's agitator in the middle of an intense match? Passing is better than ever with a point and pass system, which to some, is hard to manage 2 players at once, but as in the NHL, practice makes perfect, and you don't really need fancy plays to win games. Plus the fact that has the Flyers new goal horn (absent in the last NHL game for a Nintendo system, NHL 06).
