The amount of ways to play the game, the near-overwhelming upgrade and leveling systems, the gameplay tweaks, and the excellent crowd effects (female fans wear the official female logos and apparel of their home stadium!) are nothing short of amazing for a game on a 12 month development cycle. The team at EA Canada love their hockey, and that fact is abundantly clear in the amount of stuff they've crammed into the game both significant and tiny. If you're a hardcore fan, NHL 10 is a no-brainer. If you're not a hockey nut, NHL 10 still has enough customizability and non-traditional modes to be one of the year's best virtual sports experiences. Worth the upgrade? Absolutely".
