Picked up this game, one of the best hockey games I have ever played. It's much smoother then last year, much improved animations, better moves - The games are so tight, it's extremly realistic. I haven't even really tried the Be a Pro mode, which is one of the most anticipated parts of this game.

Although, I think the new level of realism might be too much for non-hockey fans. It's much tighter and defense plays a bigger part, it's not as much as the speed coast to coast and get easy goals with huge hits. There are big hits, but it's not as easy to pull off as it once was.

ANYWAY, I love this game! Any hockey fan deserves this game.
