A Must Need Game!!!
NHL 10 is by far my favorite game for my 360. There are momentem shifters, like if your team just won a fight and are down they might play better and score. There are first person fighting were you are inside a nhl player. There is also a mode where you can be a player in the NHL just like superstar mode for madden. There are glass bangers. And there are towel wavers. There are also people in the crowed that are from the away team. When you get a hat trick they have hats falling down. You can create plays, players, and teams. You have a option to pick if you want to aim your shots. To aim your wrist shots you move the right stick were you want to shot. To aim a Slapper you pull back the right stick and point with the left stick, the push the right stick fowerd. It is not that hard to. The graphics are amzing and the anoncers are great. The goiles also make amazing saves like if they reach behiend them. I would definitly get this game. I give it a 10/10. :)
We can only hope that the glitchers can last at least six months before they ruin this game. To be honest, i would of been completely happy if thet just took NHL 09- Fixed it and made it play like actual hocky and get rid of all the over used curve shots and glitch shots and sold it at full price and i would of bought it. But no, they make NHL 10 and make it look really good at that, but im concerned with the board-play and the fake shots. I could care less about after the whistle crap, whitewashing, firstp person fighting etc, all that does it make a game bad. They need to FIX the game they have now and just make it work right before they add a bunch of new features that will just need to be fixed in a year to make it better for some and worst for others. 09 is the greatest sports game ive ever played, but people over do the glitching. Everyone forgot what hackey and team play are and it makes me sad. I have high hopes for this game i just hope they didnt over do something that they cant fix.
this game is great
I played this game with my friend it is great! After a goal you can get in brawls and you can kick the puck to your teammate if you are getting held up against the boards way better graphics than 09. In create a player mode there are way more stuff to choose from they have the new warrior stick and for skates they have the whole new bauer line their are no more nikebauer equipment it is just plain bauer new helmets and the new reebok 8k this game is awesome. One more thing that they did to this game they added broken sticks when you take a slapshot sometimes you snap your stick and you have to press a button right away or else you get a penalty for holding your stick. This is the most coolest thing about this game the fans go crazy with towels flinging them and they knock on the boards so it sounds like the real games i swear this looks like this game is being filmed at the real nhl stadiums and it shows fans of the game at the end of the game. This is sweat game buy it!
Totally beats 2k!
I really only have one thing to say when i talk about this game. That happens to be that the controlls on this game are easy to get used to and fun to use once you get them. When you make a move on a goalie and score that game winner in game 7 of the stanley cup finals, you will be SUPER satisfied. One thing that might be on your mind if your reading reviews on this game is "Should i get this or NHL 2k10?" Let me answer that for you. "Don't ever mention 2k when dealing with hockey ever again." EA sports totally wrecks in NHL games while 2k is still back in the stone ages with button pressing for shooting and moving. How bout upgrade to the analog sticks 2k sports!!!! If they could do that, they might have a decent game on their hands. Though, their graphics still aren't as good and fans in this game are more realistic than ever. So don't even ponder the decision over which game. If you want an NHL game, GET NHL 10!!!!!!!! simple enough
NHL 2010 wil once again be sports game of the year.
For the 13th time, EA sports has put out another masterpiece for the X BOX 360,and for the PS3. NHL 2010 is an amazing game filled with new features to make the game even more realistic and exciting. The all new fighting view, GM, and "board battles", were brought into the game to really emphasize the realistically of the game. If you didn't already now who was on the cover, let me tell you then. Patrick Kane, of the Chicago Black hawks was chosen and really i think it was a wrong pick. I would have chosen someone more famous and someone who can relate to be that don't even know hockey. For instance, choose Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh penguins. Its like what 2k sports did. They picked Alexander Ovechkin (the king of hockey), and with this people will relate better and possibly buy more games. Anyways this game will have no cons, just all pros and the graphics are going to be amazing. Overall this game is going to be a 11/10 game.
Fantastic hockey game
I am brand spanking new to the xbox360 and this was the first game I purchased for it. As someone that has played hockey since I was a tike, even playing some semi pro for a bit let me tell ya, this game is as close as it gets. Thw players move very realistic. The presentation and graphics are like watching it on tv. The commentary is supurb. Being able to fight for the puck along the boards is something that adds so much to the game. The Be the GM mode is so in-depth is almost more than one should get in a video game. I can honestly say there is nothing I can say bad about this game at all. I know that this game is over a year old and that this years has added broken stiks and whatnot, but if you do not feel like droping the big bucks for that one, pick this one up, you will not be disapointed.
WOW, I didn't think it could get better!
EA has really outdone itself this year with the '10 versions of their games and NHL '10 is no exception, actually it is exceptional. Gameplay has been improved over last year with the new hold mechanism. If you watch any hockey on TV you see that going on all the time during the games. It adds another dimension of strategy. The passing has also changed and is now more sensitive to where you are aiming the puck. NHL '09 was pretty much automatic with passing. It may be an improvement, but it also makes offense a bit more difficult and getting it out of your zone on a powerplay. In my mind, difficult is a good thing when it comes to sports games. The online modes are really the same, which I am not sure needed any updating. The six on six play is really cool. Be prepared to bring your game online, there are a lot of solid players. The graphics are really good and the crowd is improved. Dare I say there are some hotties sitting on the boards. Now that is realism!
THIS COULD BE THE BEST HOCKEY GAME EVER!!!!!!!
Hey NHL10 is on of the best games around the graphics are just amazing the crowd looks like your right in the stands they react on goals its just amazing and the player faces could use a little more work and for the goalie i think they should add more save controls they been the same since 08.NHL10 has a new fighting controls are great its now first person its just better then it is but i think they could make the computer do a little more during the fights its not right they just look like they dont even know what to do it needs work but still a good hockey game.Be a pro mode was rarly worked on the only new thing they added to it is that you can edit your ratings when creating your pro its better but not better enought to make it look different from the 09 game to me it still needs work.Also the online connection dosent work well at all its like they didnt even put it on the game that needs alot of work and i would totally recommend getting this game if i were you if you dont you will miss out on something big.
played the demo and....
It was absolutely incredible. Honestly, I was quite worried about the new features ruining a game that was already pretty close to perfect. However they are WONDERFUL. The board play feels very natural and is a useful part of the game, though I fear it may get overused. The after the whistle stuff also added a lot to the game and this game just feels a lot more like you're actually at a hockey game than the previous versions. It looks great and the improvements to the crowd are exciting as they respond more to the action on the ice. Also the goalie AI is much improved. The one glitch I found is when Sergei Gonchar inexplicably passed the puck behind him on a delayed penalty call and scored a goal for me. I'm hoping this is a freak thing or something they'll fix in the full version of the game because the first time it happens to me I feel I may have to buy a new controller from me throwing mine. Other than that though I couldn't have been more impresssed.
If you like hockey, then you'll love this!
I just recently bought this game from GameStop and right away I fell in love with it. I am a huge hockey fan, and I have purchased every NHL game that has come out. (Since 2004) This game, though, is by far the best! The graphics are amazing for the 360 and the players look very similar to the actual player. The controls took a little while to get used too but once I memorized them, the game was 100% better. The fighting is very realistic and even your smaller players (Maxim Afinogenov, Martin St. Louis, Brian Gionta, etc.) can win against the "heavyweights". All the teams have multiple alternate jerseys, and the arenas are very diverse. The goalies can actually stop some shots, unlike past years, and it is very easy to make unbelievable plays. Overall, EA Sports made a winner with this game and it is a personal favorite. I recommend this game to ALL hockey fans and even the people who are new to the game. There are many GAME MODES to choose between and I definitely recommend A LOT of memory, mainly because you will get hitched and will continue to save and play. T-MAC
