Just in case you don’t know, NHL 2K9 is an ice hockey game which is part of a long running successful franchise. The previous titles have been good in their own parts, but NHL 2K9 has learnt from its past mistakes. One thing that had always been a problem was the steep learning curve required to actually play the game. On par with not knowing the rules of Ice Hockey, some would find this extremely frustrating. But the introduction of the new pick up and play feature allows new inexperienced players to get stuck into the game, without having to master the controls. And for the more experienced players, there is a new hybrid system allowing for a more complex and challenging play.
NHL 2K9 also focuses a lot more on overall looks and gameplay. They have a new skating engine, more realistic collisions, puck handling and bone crunching tackling. Take 2 have also improved the presentation, such as the menu, replays and audience physics. New songs from various rock and punk artists have been added, which really helps get the adrenaline pumping.
If you’re looking for something quick and easy or challenging and deep, then NHL 2K9 offers both. It’s great to play with friends or online, and there’s plenty of re-playability and depth. And for £3.97 you really can’t go wrong.
