In recent times, this has been a very, very good thing, with EA Canada pulling out all the stops to innovate and bring the series forward with new features. NHL 09 saw the addition of the Be A Pro mode, allowing players to take control of a single player for the duration of their career, both online and offline. It was a massive success - we thought damn highly of it. NHL 10 doesn't have anywhere near the same level of new features though, with EA Canada choosing to keep the core game intact, while polishing and refining it as much as possible. The result is, undoubtedly, a good one - but is it worth the upgrade for NHL 09 owners?"
