The gameplay is fun enough when you're playing with a good friend, but since you'll likely be limited to playing with a friend, in the one gametype provided, that fun will probably be short lived. To add insult to injury, when you quit you have to click through an ad, similar to the 'Buy the full game!' ones found in trials, for NHL 2009. Even if you own the game and have a save on your hard drive, you see the ad. For 800 points, you can do much, much better.
