I got suckered into playing NHL 08 after hearing nothing but great things about it. Do I really want to try this one?

If you liked NHL 08, i would have to say yes, you do. Overall, its more balanced on defense and offense. Oh and "IF" you get a breakaway you can try to deke, but it's harder to get a breakaway this time around, (doesnt happen often, like in real life...), and goalies are much improved ( ..and can do great looking saves). These are the two big improvements over last year (besides the AWESOME be a pro mode)and the "replay" options.

have fun

I loved EA NHL Games

But i just HATE THERE DE-FAULT CONTROLES AND how u WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO ADJUST TO THEM

So i set the Game to use CLASSIC Controls, But guess what i lose certain controls in the Game like turbo(speeding up the player)

I dont see why EA wont let u customize ur own buttons

PoSTedUP3789d ago

i dont think their is a "turbo" button... is their? nonetheless this is the best hockey game to date.

@ importfighter- what button is the turbo button???
