Wow, i got 3 games for christmas, This, COD4, and Ratchet and Clank, and i really did not expect this one to be my favorite. It's just crazy fun, i can't get enough of it.

The Character models are amazing, truly incredible, so much detail, in the sweat to the facial expressions, it all looks great, they all look like a different person. The only complaint is that the crowd characters look bad, they don't look like real people, but it was worth making the crowd not good to make the players exceptional.

This is where the game truly shines, you use the Left analog to move your player of course, and the right you use your stick with, to shoot, deke etc. The R2 trigger is pass and it works and feels great, and to check someone you skate towards them and move the right analog at them and it checks them, its awesome

Yeah so if you're a hockey fan, buy this game without hesitation, believe me, it is worth the cash
