It is just a good game to play
When I first got it i thought might give it a try. But it was funner than i thought. You can control how you shoot like either a slop shot or a quik shot...basicly you control the stick. This game also had pretty tite grafics. You have to play this game on an HD TV like every other 360 game..I think that you should get this game if you like to be in control of everything that goes on in the game. Another thing that is great in this that when the first time you turn it on before you made a profile or anything it shows you the basics to the game and lets you practice with three shots at the goaly..then when the game is loading it shows the controls. So when you face off the first time you will at least know the controls. I enjoyed playing this game.
Better than 08 and 09
This is definitly one of the better NHL games out there. Get this instead of one of the other ones because you cant beat the price and 08 and 09 were not as great as the other NHL games.
