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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

I love hockey and hockey sims. While I enjoyed the EA NHL series for the PC, my problem with them that they require some skill at using those game button pads. EA created a super duper hockey sim for the Wii that uses a stick that holds your remote and nunchuck. I use the Team Canada hockey stick (as opposed to the so-so EA Sports one that is bundled with the game). This setup is much easier to use for me and more realistic than those game pads. While the game is not as "hardcore" with as many options seen on the PC or console in the EA NHL series, this one compensates by having a career mode from Pee-Wee to Pro that is so much fun to play. Also you play/control as one player instead of hopping to player to player.

The only con of this game is that sadly EA does not make a new Wii one each year!

PS- it is interesting that the best hockey games I ever played have "The Great One" Gretzky's name to them...Bethesda's Wayne Gretzky 1 & 2 for the legacy PC and now this Gretzky one for the Wii.

It is good Wii game, and it includes the stick. But I still am trying to figure how to play better. Sometimes some games are easy to understand and play better, some games like as this is hard to understand and will practice till I am getting there. But it is really great, the package includes a game Disc and a stick.
