Now that I’ve really sunk my teeth into let me give you my thoughts on NHL 2010. The one thing I always like about EA’s NHL series is that they do try to add new things each year they turn out a new one. They aren’t always big things but it gives the game a newer feel.
This year they brought out board play and first person fighting. Both small things but make the game just that much better. Board play is seen frequently in real games so why not include it in the video game. Fighting for the puck while pressing someone against the boards takes a few attempts to get it right but you’ll be a pro in no time.
First person fighting puts you in the skates of the player on the ice. Drop your gloves and throw some punches. The fights don’t last very long especially if you’re playing an online opponent but it is amusing none the less.
The popular Be a Pro game mode has returned for the 2010 season. However this time around you can play in a prospects game and get drafted. Or you can just choose your favorite team and start there. Either way you choose you must show your skills and make your way up though the AHL and into the NHL.
Overall EA made another great NHL game and defiantly deserved the Best Team Sports game at the VGA’s this year.
