"Once again, NHL 2K10 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 is the hockey game for the other guy. 2K Sports' treatment of the sport is the yin to NHL 10's yang, boasting arcade accessibility for casual fans instead of its rival's rigorous attention to on-ice authenticity. While the game is unlikely to be taken seriously by members of the hardcore shinny set, it really wasn't made for them. This is a quick pick-up-and-play game for people whose interest in the real NHL doesn't go much beyond watching a few Stanley Cup final matchups every June after the primetime TV schedule has gone into repeats."
