Gamers Universe writes: "NHL 08 was not only last year's finest ice hockey game it was arguably the best sports game of 2007 full stop. But with success comes great expectations, so what has EA Sports got up its sleeve for ice hockey fans this year?
As with virtually all of EA's upcoming sports titles, 'Be a Pro' makes its first full appearance. It's a mode that will be instantly familiar to anyone who's played FIFA 08. 'Be a Pro' allows you to create your own player and guide them through a career from fresh-faced AHL rookie to fully-fledged NHL superstar. Upon creating your player (or selecting a current one) you choose a position and playing style. Choose wisely though, because in 'Be a Pro' mode you only control your chosen player, as opposed to the entire team."
