"better goalie animations wat r u smokin these goalies look like block heads" New animations are expected in a new game. "they didnt actualy copy 2k cause 2k's board play is different in 2k u can elbow people in the head only but in nhl10 u can only pokecheck the puck" Ummm, yes they did. 2K has done board play since they started. EA copies their style and all of a sudden they're innovative? Please. And 2K5 was the best.
ssn560 u must be f-ing kidding me better goalie animations wat r u smokin these goalies look like block heads
@wopchop23 From 99-2008 they were putting out $hit correction From 99-2010 they were putting out $hit

Haha. That's pretty awesome that you guys didn't even read my entire post and then basically said exactly what i did while shouting out "EA FANBOY!". To recap what i JUST posted "My roommate and i played the 2k series up until 08." Its right there. In my original post. I'm not an EA fanboy i just go where the best video hockey is and lately its been EA. I hope to god NHL 2k10 does better than last year because it having a strong year will only help both games in the long run. To sit there and pretend like one stole everything from the other and that's the only reason its good only further shows that you didn't actually read what i said. Grats on lazy reading and jumping to conclusions! Again. Pull your head out of your butt. Both games BORROW from each other. Neither is a shining example of nobility and originality. Get over the fact that they use each other to make the best game they can.
and wop, that was hilarious. the game is a day from its release, how would you know if it sucks? and to say 2K has always sucked shows you know nothing. 2K DESTROYED them in the ratings for about 7 years. 2003 was garbage and 2004 was just as bad. everybody knows NHL 2K5 is the greatest hockey game out there.
mike1080, that's just insane. Savoie 10 nailed it. EA has made garbage games from 98-2008. It wasn't until NHL 09 where they picked it up, not even. The only reason why its considered good is because 2K9 was AWFUL. It looks like 2K10 will be a solid game so get off EA's schlong. And they did steal from 2K. Boardplay, better goalie animations, hitting the puck out of the air, the list goes on and on... and It goes no ways if you keep making lame excuses for EA.
Savoie10 - I hate to tell you this man but people aren't generally going to go out and buy both games just to see which one was worth the $. Aside from a few screenshots every 2 months they just haven't done much promoting. Them not even releasing a demo kind of makes me weary. What are they trying to hide?! My roommate and i used to play the 2k series up until 08. We bought both copies. Played em and just felt EA was more worthwhile and haven't gone back since. That's not to say 2k can't make a good hockey game i honestly just don't think they have the money to compete w/ EA anymore. The fact that 2k thought that it was worthwhile to spend ANY development time to create some crappy Zamboni mini game and have publicly stated that they "Want to bring the fun back to video hockey". Which to me basically means "We can't keep up with the development of the actual game play so we'll pretend that it doesn't matter!'. That being said i hope NHL 2k doesn't go anywhere because despite what peoples personal opinions on the matter are having 2 solid hockey games out there will only make both better in the long run. If you don't like this game and can't think of anything other than "They copied this. They copied that." please shutup and pull your head outta your butt. It works both ways. The 2 franchises make each other better and we are the ones that reap the rewards. /endrant
The only reason why dwd_27 said that is because it does suck. It says Post a Comment. That was his comment. So you make yours and thats it. hes not trying to convince anyone. And the 2k Series was always sucked compared to EA. From 99-2008 they were putting out $hit? hahahahaaaaa 2003 and 2004 were arguably one of the best hockey games you could buy next to 09 and soon to be 10. 2K is a joke. They really need to shape things up
DWD 27, why even post here if that's how you feel? Who are you trying to convince and why? Creeper6, I'm sure you know what $hit looks like since EA put it out from 99-2008. Heck the only reason why NHL09 looked as good as it did, was because 2K9 was an utter disaster. Don't let that lead you to believe 2K10 will be the same results though, because it won't. Just as NHL10 won't be the same as 09, as EA has FINALLY added boardplay and inaccurate passes for the first time to their hockey game.
Just found out today that there will be no demo for 2k10! How stupid can they be. After the piss poor 2k9, you would think that they would get a demo out to the people so they can see for themselves how much better this years game is. I don't care if they are selling this game for 50$, Without playing a demo, I will not be buying this game. Looks like EA will win this year again, they will definitely be winning my 60$. I just lost all faith in 2K.
yyaaa sucks...the guys look the same from 2k8 in my opinion...like little kombas from TMNT or whatever there called...little heads big bodys... NHL 10 FTW!
I wouldn't go so far as to say EA has done nothing to improve their game as the addition of Boardplay, Precision Passing, Seperate Cpu/Hum sliders, and all around better Defensive AI makes NHL10 the best yet for EA. The big downside to this, is the Presentation remains mostly the same, except some Crowd improvements. Now as for 2K10, VC had nowhere to go but UP after 2K9, so yeah the improvements are gonna stand out much more. It saddens me that people are so quick to dismiss this game based on 2K9 and NHL10, but it's somewhat understandable as well. However, if you do some reading up somewhere besides here, you'll realize that 2K10 is shaping up to be a solid game this year and will be right on EA's tail come 2K11 I'm willing to bet. All that said, don't judge until you've actually had hands on time yourself with both games.
"Seriously who would play nhl2k10 when nhl10 is around ?!? well Pheonix fans maybe .." u havent played either game, u dont nor any of us know which game is going to be better. what improvements has ea made this year?...boardplay..first person fighting..thats stupid. theyve really done nothing to make this years game better than last years game. look at 2k better graphics..wii motion plus..everything is gonna be online..mii skills competition..better ai and they have pre game intros that kill ea's-if u cant agree with that then there is smtgh wrong with u. 2k has actually done smthg to make this years game better than last years, while ea has not. 2k10 is going to be way better than nhl 10. great job 2k!
"Why would somebody get this instead of NHL 10?!" Why would somebody ask such a question? Buy the game you prefer and let everyone else buy the game their prefer. Not everyone is gonna like the same thing you know, that's what makes us individuals.
Reminds me PC version of last five or six EA sports' games. Sucky animations. Dump the engine already.
