i have got to say that this is as good as it gets. hard hits asome saves wicked slap shots. it doesnt get any better than that. they even have pretty sweet mini games and a shoot out too. i love how you can check through the glass and fire up and take over 100 mile slap shots. you can also get sweet costumes like snowmen baby dinasuars, YOU NAME IT!!! i just love this game so much, i would get rid of it even if i tried, really addicting. it just cant get any better than this. if you are a hockey fan or anything at all i suggest you get this.
