NHL 10 - Summary

EA SPORTS™ welcomes you to NHL® 10 and the franchise that has redefined sports video game excellence. On the heels of capturing 12 Sports Game of the Year awards with NHL 09, NHL 10 builds off of its Best in Class momentum by delivering an enhanced gameplay experience featuring more innovation, polished fundamentals, and deeper game modes. Utilizing a new board physics engine, use your body to shield the puck on the boards, then kick-pass it to teammates as winning one-on-one battles for possession along the boards becomes a test of will. An all-new first-person fighting engine enables you to trade punches and grab an opponent's jersey to land a punch that sparks your team to victory. With more than 200 gameplay refinements replicating the skill, power, strength, and finesse of authentic NHL action, plus a new Battle for the Cup mode, an evolved GM Mode, and improved Be a Pro and EASHL modes, your chance to prove you're tough enough begins now.

  • New Battle for the Cup Mode: Experience the intensity of NHL playoff hockey. Play through injuries, intimidate rivals, and match lines as storylines carry across the entire series.
  • Build a Stanley Cup champion: All-new GM mode lets you scout amateurs, put players on the trading block, hire staff, and earn experience points to become a legendary GM.
  • Battle on the boards: Shield the puck with your body, kick-pass it to teammates, or pin your opponent against the boards with an all-new board play engine.
  • All-new first-person fighting: Change the momentum by trading blows with an NHL enforcer. Tug an opponent's jersey to gain an advantage, before or after the whistle.
  • The ultimate pro: Improve your draft status by dominating the prospects game, then use new coaching tips, improved teammate A.I., and detailed position instructions as you build the ultimate career.
  • Multiple championships: The coveted EA SPORTS Hockey League Cup is always up for grabs as new seasons start on a monthly basis online.
  • New intimidation tactics: Forecheck defenders, pressure the puck, and finish checks to force your opponent into mistakes, as players fatigue, bobble passes, and avoid collisions under threat of physical pressure.
  • All-new post-whistle action: The action never stops! Antagonize opposing players, finish checks, retaliate for late shots on goal, draw penalties, and pick fights -- all after the referee blows the whistle!

I've always thought soccer was less popular than hockey in the US but this is actually selling less than FIFA 10 in Americas. Consideing that EA probably gets a nice chunk of their NHL 10 Americas sales from Canada, FIFA 10 is probably killing NHL 10 in the states.

I'm currently renting it. Good game. I used to be a HUGE fan of the series but I haven't played an NHL game since NHL 2001 so it's neat to see how much the series has evolved since then. I still like playing the traditional season mode but be a player mode (introduced in 09) is pretty neat. Gonna fiddle with Be a GM mode later.

this might just be one of those sports games even if you don't like hockey but enjoy other sports games you'll need to add to your sports collection. it just represents the sport of hockey that good.
