    This game is not worth playing, wait until the series get better!

    Overall feeling: OK There are some cool features in this game, as shooting with a real life shooting motion with the Wiimote. But the graphics is lacking, the raw hockey feeling is not really there and sometimes the AI ... Read Full Review

    Take-Two Interactive should have a Take-Two on this game.

    NHL 2K9 is on the Wii. So, it must be fun, you ask? It is kinda fun, but not for long. One thing you'll notice about this game is the fact that there aren't very many modes. You've got Quickplay, Franchise, Season, Min... Read Full Review
