Synopsis

You started out like all the pros do: wobbly on the ice, playing three-on-three in the neighborhood rink. All that has changed now. You've trained and drilled until your blades dulled, and you've earned your spot on the NHL roster. Now the pressure is on: it's the championship game and the Stanley Cup is within your grasp. There's one minute to go and you hurl yourself toward the puck, feel it nestle against your stick and bolt into a breakaway. You hear the scraping of your opponents' blades close behind you. Your muscles tire but you hold your stick firmly in your hands. The goal is just feet away and the moment is yours for the taking: will you make the championship-winning Slapshot and become a hockey legend?

All of the realistic, exhilarating action is in your own two hands when you pick up the NHL Slapshot hockey stick accessory - skillfully deke, check and shoot with the stick and watch your moves translate into real-time action on your screen. When you control every move, it's up to you to make all of your hockey dreams come true. Start as a peewee and work your way up to play with all of your NHL heroes in a demanding career mode. Do you want to achieve the ultimate level of hockey greatness? Seize the opportunity to take the ice as "The Great One," Wayne Gretzky, and experience what it's like to be a living legend. Whether you're riveting your eyes to the prize or just shooting the net with friends in fun mini games, you'll never want to unlace your skates and step away from NHL Slapshot.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To be perfectly honest, when I first saw this game at Best Buy I was quite excited - I've been an addict of NHL2K10 for the last year and liked the Wii's play controls, but was always annoyed with how stiff it felt. To see a game with an actual hockey stick seemed perfect.

Then I went home and read the reviews from different gaming site - and everyone gave it solid marks (B-A-) but constantly mentioned that it wasn't for hardcore gamers - that scoring 7+ goals was common and that things weren't realistic enough. Disappointed, I checked it off my "things I want for Christmas" list.

Then, ironically, my wife gave it to me as a present - she saw how much I loved the 2K10 game - so I put on tentative smile and thanked her. I was hoping, if anything, that since Slapshot was more arcade like, we could actually play it together unlike 2K10 which is a bit complex at times.

I popped the disc in later that night and started playing the PeeWee to Pro mode (where you create your own player and start off as a little dude in the outside rinks and have to move your way up through the leagues). The arcadeness came out right away - checking and shooting was definitely fun - just move the stick as you would instinctively - but the scores were often double digits and checking sent the little guys flying across the ice. I must say my wife found it adorable to see lil baby Kane and Toews running around the ice - it has a cute factor to it.

So I upped the difficulty level to "superstar" - and now the game became very intense to play - quite competitive and fun - yet still double digit scores. It was like playing NBA Jam but for hockey.

However, then I came to see where so many reviewer went wrong.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
NHL Slapshot is a great hockey experience on the Wii. Definitely more of an arcade experience than a simulation like the regular NHL series, Slapshot still offers a great combination of fun and skill and it gets you moving and involved with your hockey video game experience. Checking is the funnest part in the whole thing as it really feels substantial on the screen. Each hit feels huge and hits with guys that actually are big hitters, feels even better. Goal scoring is fun and you can still make some pretty great plays. The game feels great and is easy to play right off the bat (or stick as it may be...) my only complaint is that EA Sports didn't put out any additional hockey sticks to purchase on the release day of the game. but i won't bother putting a lower score for the game just because the company didn't fully understand that the game is best played with the hockey stick...

4.0 out of 5 stars EA Scores September 8, 2010
By Matt
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
NHL Slapshot is a good game that brings hockey to your living room. I was impressed with responsiveness of the hockey stick when using wrist shots, backhands or slapshots. I even found myself lowering my shoulder to get around defenders in traffic.

It definitely translated hockey well to the Wii and have no complaints so far. I would give this a higher mark, but have yet to get too far into a season and Pee Wee to Pros mode.

If you're looking for a more realistic hockey game, this may not be for you. But control wise it's tons of fun and does make you feel like you are part of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun but not for a hardcore hockey perfectionist November 18, 2010
By Rich
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoy hockey, but I'm not a stickler for a comprehensive GM mode like in baseball games. This game is a lot of fun, is challenging on the hardest skill levels, and peewee to pro is a unique game experience. The arenas are generic except for the logos on the ice. The player faces are generic, but the names are real. Commentary is average. Main thing is this game is a lot of fun and a challenge. If you're ok without the hardcore details of a hockey simulation then this game is definitely a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars NHL Slapshot is the Best!!! October 16, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
NHL Slapshot is a great game whereby you can play pee wee, AHL, CHL & NHL. You can play mini games from a full NHL Season to playoffs. Everyone who has tried the game, however, has found that game play is best using the Wii remote & Nunchuk - so I would certainly try the hockey stick as a controller before you purchase any additional sticks. This game has quickly become one of the family's favorite games on the Wii that everyone enjoys! You can play pee wee, bantam to the pros that includes slapshot games, mini games and you can play a whole NHL Season to the Playoffs. The only reason why I gave it a 4 star is that there could be improvements with the goalie control and there needs to be more variety from the announcers as the lines can become monotonous. You will certainly not be disappointed if you buy this game as it is a fun game for all ages!

4.0 out of 5 stars Old School Fun December 14, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
NHL Slapshot is a well-made game, though it has some bare-bones moments. The peewee to pro mode is very engaging while you are playing, but there really isnt anything to do outside of just playing hockey games. The regular game-play modes are excellent and really feel like an updated version of the classic EA NHL games of old (94,95). There's an elegance in a lot of the simplicity of the game, but at times it is also a downfall as well. Things like manual line changes are missing, but if you can look past that, the run and gun, heavy-hitting gameplay is addictive. The stick peripheral actually works very well, and really does make the game truly immersive. It is easy to get lost in the moment and really explode with excitement when you score a goal. Graphically it is maybe the sharpest looking sports game for Wii, with the exception of the tiger woods series perhaps. They went with the same concept as the madden series for wii, having standard body types and a more arcade-based graphical style, but it is sharp and gorgeous. The roster update took forever to finally come but it is great now that its here. I can imagine how fun the multiplayer is, tho i've yet to really get to try it. Did i mention it has AHL and CHL teams?

Anyway, this game does a few things for me. First, it throws me back to a day when games were simpler and ultimately more enjoyable. Second, it provides a great challenge on high difficulties. Third, it really immerses me into the games to the point where i probably look like an idiot taunting the tv after i score a big goal. And lastly, it looks pretty slick while doing everything. Great game that is definitely worth the pick-up, though moreso if you aren't turned off by a lack of realism or an OCD amount of gameplay options.
