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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by reebok 101 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!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Guy:) 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. :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by chinchbugs 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!
Rated 9 out of 10 by crushers9000 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by flyersfan18 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by NHL 2010 game fan 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.
Rated 9 out of 10 by cusemanhornman 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
Rated 10 out of 10 by Kooldude1120 Best NHL Game Ever
To me this is the Best NHL game ever. I own every NHL Hockey Game ever Even every 2k Games. (Every System even if did not have) I played every single one and To me this game beats everyone of them. Players Looks almost real Stats on players are mostly right. The Fighting on this is Crazy Good. First Person Fighting Mood is Sweet puts you right into the players eyes. The New SuperStar Mode is Still Crazy and Sweet I can not get off of it. They even have the Winter Classic Rinks from the 2 pasted Games. The only thing I would change on this game is the commentaters I would have Rick Jeanneret and Harry Neal they to me are the best in the Leauge. And i Would also make a Feature where you can play Classic Games as a task or something like ESPN FOOTBALL had. Like Games like the NO GOAL call in the 99'' Stanley Cup Finals. But for me this game is great I can not wait untill NHL11 is out and Ryan Miller on the Cover.
Rated 10 out of 10 by KingVG BEST NHL GAME EVER!!!! [only 1 problem]
Once I first played this game, I was very happy and excited. I have not bought a hockey game since NHL 07, and it stunk, but his game totally made a difference. The graphics are remarkable, the hits are amazing, and the fantasy draft is back, which is my favorite part to any sports games ever. There is only one slight problem to this game though, and it's not really that big of a deal, but what is the problem with the player's ratings? Sidney Crosby at 94, Alex Ovechkin at 93, and Patrick Kane at 86? I think that is a little low for these three, and also just throwing it out there too because he is my favorite player, but Henrik Lundqvist is rated 87, really? This is what I think the overall ratings should look like. Crosby and Ovechkin should be rated 98, Kane should be rated 96, and Lundqvist shoul be rated 92. But overall, if you are a big hockey fan, like me, than this game is the game for you 100%
