The Herp of Spawn Kill Writes:
"The NHL 2K series used to be top dog when I entered the world of hockey video games. Their attention to detail used to stand out and show their true passion for the sport. Ever since EA's NHL series reworked their control scheme and started concentrating on realism, the 2K series has struggled to keep up with the competition. Last year, NHL 2K9 was definitely a disappointment to 2K fans and things were supposed to be better this year. The good news is that it is better than last year's title… The bad news is it's still far from where the fans want them to be."
