5.0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS GAME! Madden does NOT compare! September 12, 2008
By John P.
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, to explain my title, I admit that I am, primarily a Hockey fan. I love Football as well, but Hockey is my #1 sport.

Ok, that being said, I didn't write the title because I prefer Hockey over Football...I wrote it because EA Canada has truly added a boat-load of features and innovations to this game, rather than take the route that EA Tiburon has taken year in and year out, and recycle last year's game.

I have been playing NHL games since the dawn of time...or at least since the first NHL game was released way back in the day.
Yes, of course I LOVED NHL '94. I loved it so much, I still wish I could play it...I've been hoping EA would make it an unlockable game in this year's version...but no such luck.
Anyway, by the time NHL '07 came out, I was starting to get frustrated by the NHL games. The controls were getting more complicated, the games were becoming less arcadey, and slower, and I just found myself losing interest and hope that the perfect Hockey game would EVER appear.

NHL '08 I know restored most peoples' hope in the series, but I wasn't convinced. I just couldn't get the dual analog stick handling down.
Then...the demo for NHL '09 came out.
I was skeptical at first, but the demo forces you to go through a series of tests of skill with the stick handling before it lets you play a game.
This was BRILLIANT on EA Canada's part.
By the third time through the tutorial, I felt comfortable enough with the controls to try the Be A Pro mode.
I went out and pre-ordered the game the same day.

BE A PRO mode is what I've been waiting all my Hockey-loving life for.
It's Hockey with RPG elements.

5.0 out of 5 stars EA finally made a believer out of me. September 15, 2008
By Mike
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was going to buy NHL 08 last season for PS2 but after trying it out, I got the 2K version instead (which admittedly ended up getting played a lot less than the other 2K titles.) This year I abandoned playing the games on PS2 and went and tried them out on XBox 360 instead.

I heard some good things said about NHL 09 and yet the first thing I thought to myself was "Great, an EA NHL title for an odd year, not a good sign." (I gave EA's NHL 07 2 stars and didn't review NHL 05 because I thought it was terrible!)

The short version of this review: This game gave me everything I could have ever asked for and more.

The long version:

I sat down and went over my options and I couldn't believe the DEPTH of the game. EA has always included the NHL, the SM-Liiga, the Elitserien, and the DEL. Two years ago they included the Czech Extraliga and last year they included the AHL. This year... The Kontinental Hockey League and all of it's teams make their EA debut! Way to go EA for pulling off such a coup!

And that's just for starters.

The controllers have three options: The NHL 09 settings that are complex but diverse, the "classic" settings that make the controls a bit easier without losing all the functions, or the NHL 94 controller settings where you pass/select your player with A and shoot/check with B, just like playing it back in the day (though the disadvantage is losing the ability to change your lines manually, instigate a fight, etc.) Even controlling the goalies is cool because you can set their positioning and have them prepare to make saves in the butterfly, blocker, or glove. Pretty nifty if I say so myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best NHL game from EA in years October 7, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been a while since I've played an NHL game from EA that didn't feel like I was still playing the previous year's version. Thankfully, NHL 09 changes all that. That arcade feel that EA's NHL series has been infamous for? It's pretty much gone, and in it's place instead is an actual realistic simulation that rivals the 2K series. Opponent AI has also been considerably amped, helping make the game more simulation-based than ever before. The new additions to the already excellent skill stick are superb, with new manuvers and tactics for clogging passing lanes and putting a new emphasis on defensive-based hockey. If using the skill stick isn't your thing, there's a two-button control scheme based on the classic NHL '94 that is a pure joy to use. The Be a Pro mode is immersive beyond belief, and the game looks and plays beautifully. Online play suffers from some flaws however, most notably being an interface that isn't too user-friendly, and some occasional connection issues. Flaws aside though, NHL 09 is without a doubt the best NHL game to come from EA in years, and if you're a hockey fan it goes without saying that NHL 09 deserves your attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Minor details makes this better than last year September 11, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The physics engine in this game is one of the best I have seen yet. Everything down to how you skate, aiming a shot and even checking/fighting. Also, this game introduces more of the European leagues and teams. Another great feature is taking your own league/club online and fighting to become the best. This game has everything it needs to make it a great game to play with your buddies or on your own. I'd highly recommend this game to anyone who loved last years game.
