    Best NHL yet

    I have been a big fan of EA's NHL series for a long time. I love to make a player in my likeness and play in the NHL and school the goalie with a nice deke. The one thing that always bothered me was the fact that from th... Read Full Review

    The Good: Fast pace, great graphics, good music and good commentary. The Bad: Skill Stick, AI, Learning curve, documentation, same old 3rd period shenanigans. As many have already said, the skill stick took a ste... Read Full Review

    Just simply amazing!! this game has set the limits for all sports games.

    NHL 09 not only blew away all the other hockey games but all the sports games. Everybody thought that it would be hard to come close to NHL 08 but it seemed effortless. EA took this to a whole new level. NHL 09 p... Read Full Review

    I must say out of all the EA Sports Hockey games NHL 09 is truly the best game that they have ever made to date.

    Well the first thing you will notice is that there is a whole new game mode and that is the Be A Pro mode and all I have to say is it's about time. I have been watching as all the other sports games came out with their v... Read Full Review
